Don’t Get in a Rut – Dickey Porter is a well-known and very successful crappie angler in Southeast Tennessee. While he admittedly does it sometimes, Porter has good advice for anglers that sometimes get caught in a rut – doing the same thing over and over again because it worked well once. “I fish with jig weights from 1/48 ounce to 3/32 ounce. I have some larger jigs but I just don’t use them much. I know some fishermen who fish vertical trees that prefer ¼ ounce jigs because they want a fast fall, but for my style of fishing, a much slower fall is better. That is just my style of fishing. But, that said, I tell other fishermen all the time, ‘Don’t fall in love with a favorite lure. It will break your heart like your first girlfriend did.”
