sponsors Tackle Terry By Terry Tuma QUESTION: What is the primary food source of crappies and sunfish in winter? TERRY: Zooplankton make up their main winter meals. But let’s break this down into two categories: daphnia and copepods. If we understand how these creatures move, we’ll enhance our success. For instance, daphnia rise under low light conditions. As morning progresses, they’ll descend in the water column thus becoming tougher for fish to approach. Food sources will shift during the day to copepods, which are active in bright conditions. Weather, snow cover, ice thickness, and water clarity all affect zooplankton activity. This is why changes in jigging actions, bait sizes, water column depths, and locations are crucial in enjoying a great day on the ice. Berkley Gulp!
