Dropping crappie jigs through flooded timber is a go-to strategy for slabs, and a float tube lets you fish the gnarliest woods without fear of busting a prop or spooking the fish. The beauty of tube fishing here is how quickly and stealthily you can move from tree to tree, so don’t linger long. Target a treetop, make four vertical jigging drops, then kick to the next tree. And with every strike, take careful notice of depth, which side of the tree the fish was on, and the tree’s size. If the bite slows, you’ll know where to target your efforts.
