   Crappie Fishing Adventures

About Us

Damon Phillips

Joe Long

I have been fishing the waterways of Indiana for many years.  I started out as a bass fisherman but after my first experience spider rigging for crappie I was hooked on chasing America's #1 favorite panfish.  For me, there is no greater joy in fishing than hooking into a monster slab crappie!  When you are in the boat with me I will work hard to make your experience enjoyable.  I am a firm believer in providing you with  information you can use to make you a better crappie fisherman.

About Damon's Boat

About Joe's Boat

We will be fishing out of a 2013 Lowe Stinger 195.  This boat is 19' long and is one of the widest on the market so space will not be a problem.  It is equipped with a 115HP Mercury 4 stroke engine and Minn Kota 80lb Fortrex or 80lb Terrova trolling motor depending on the technique we will be doing.  I have a Humminbird Helix 12 with 360 Imaging on the bow and a Humminbird 998SI on the console that really help us find the spots we will fish.  Whether we are spider rigging or pulling crankbaits or long lining we will be using Driftmaster rod holders.


About the Techniques

We primarily vertical troll (or spider rig) because we have found it to be the most consistent way to put fish in the boat.  However, we do enjoy vertical jigging, casting jigs and flipping bobbers.  We usually let the conditions dictate the most effective way to catch them.  If there is a particular technique you would like to do let us know in advance and we will do our best to accommodate that request.

About Your Trip

We will do our best to make your trip enjoyable and to put you on fish!  My goal is for you to leave wanting to come back for more!  Having a good attitude is your first step to a great trip!
