So I need some help, I have never really targeted crappie through the ice. I go after them in my kayak during the summer all the time. Will they be in the same areas I would fish for them from the yak or will I have to find winter feeding grounds for them??? Thanks for the help in advance.

It depends on the body of water you are fishing.  If there are any basins start there.  They will usually be suspended.  They wonít go deeper than 40ft though.  If there are no basins look for remaining weed edges adjacent to the deepest part of the pond or lake

also look around weed edges. i find good crappies patrolling green weeds all season long, but only as long as the weed are green. a dead weedbed holds no crappies in my experience.

That makes sense because when the weeds are dead and decaying, they are producing methane gas that dilutes the water's oxygen level.

If available.... A basin that is a mid flat. Anything that would support bug and larvae. Panfish always suspend there picking off the tiny creatures as they rise up in the water column.
