EDITORS NOTE: Stokes McClellan of Huntersville and his son, Adam, who love to crappie fish recreationally, also are one of the nations top professional crappie-fishing teams. They travel across the country, fishing crappie tournaments with great success throughout the spring, the summer and fall. Although the McClellans fish year-round with different tactics, each catches tournament-winning stringers of big slabs. Stokes prefers to use his Color-C-Lector to learn what color jigs to fish for the most success, while Adam enjoys shooting docks. Carolinas crappie anglers can use the McClellans fishing tips that work across the country to catch more crappie this winter.
