Fall crappie fishing would probably be a fine alternative definition of “feast or famine”.
One day you feel like there isn’t a square foot of the lake without a hungry speck occupying it; and the next you’ll come back to the ramp with an empty livewell, a low tank of gas, and even lower self-esteem.
Guide Joel Ballweg of Ballweg’s guide service (www.lakewisconsinfishing.com) has been chasing crappies for years on Lake Wisconsin, one of the premier crappie fisheries in the Midwest. He knows firsthand how difficult it can be to consistently catch fall crappies.
