Father and son fishing team ready for challenging spring weather
Dealing with changing Missouri conditions
Sunday, April 3, 2011
Considering the quality of crappie water in Missouri, it makes perfect sense that a number of the country’s top crappie fishing professionals hail from the Show-Me State.
A Missouri-based father-and-son team, Travis and Charlie Bunting, have become a force to reckon with in any tournament they fish. I recently caught up with Travis for some spring crappie fishing advice.
Spring weather patterns can be hard to deal with for anglers; it’s warm it’s cold, it’s calm it’s windy, it’s dry it’s wet. When you make your living by putting slabs in the box, you have to understand how to deal with any condition. Travis is one of the best at doing so.
Understanding how weather patterns affect crappie is a skill that takes a lot time on the water to develop.
