Crappie University

Southwest Tennessee Community College and Crappie University are teaming up to host an 8-hour continuing education course all about crappie fishing. Beginners and avid crappie anglers alike will benefit from the instruction that not only covers the popular spring period when crappies are plentiful, but also teaches how and where to catch the species throughout the year. The lessons touch on everything from jigging to dock shooting, how to read water and electronics, what rigs to use and when and even some local specialty techniques known by only a select few. Students will leave this course having learned from the best of the best.

This 8-hour course is held as a part of continuing education programs with universities and colleges across the country consisting of four 2-hour night classes and covering a broad range of topics.  The classes will be held February 6, 15, 20 and 27 (Tuesday/Thursday) from 7:30-9:30 pm on the Macon Cove Campus.  The enrollment fee of $89 covers all course materials, including samples of crappie lures and jig heads.

The Crappie (Pomoxis) is believed to be native to the eastern United States and Canada. Due to wide transplantation, populations of Crappie exist in all of the 48 contiguous states today, making them a very popular North American game fish. The crappie is considered America's favorite panfish and is found in abundant numbers throughout most of the country. As a general rule, most anglers fish for crappie only around spring time when the fish move shallow and near the banks to spawn. However, avid fishermen pursue the crappie year-round, knowing the seasonal patterns of when, where and how to catch them at all times.
