Terry’s knowledge of crappie fishing is vast and he uses that knowledge to succeed in tournaments throughout Illinois. In 2016, Terry placed 1st in the Crappie USA tournament on Lake Shelbyville and placed 3rd in the Crappie USA tournament on Lake of Egypt. He also has several other 1st-3rd finishes in local crappie club tournaments.
In Terry’s words on fishing for Crappie on Clinton Lake…..
“Clinton has a great crappie population and has only continued to improve. I am fortunate enough to live close enough to Clinton where I can enjoy the crappie fishing year round. Some of my best and most fun guide trips come in December-February when others are at home waiting for warmer weather. On January 21st 2017 I had a father and a son in the boat and we had our triple limit by 11:30 am, using slip bobbers and fishing 3 to 4 ft deep. It’s a pretty common misconception that the fishing for crappie is only exceptional during the spring spawn and fall feeding frenzy. Those cold months and weather crappie fishing is some of the most exciting fishing that too many people miss out on.”
