May in Oklahoma is a prime time for crappie fishing as they relate to shallow banks, making them more accessible. Anglers often find success using jigs or minnows around submerged structures like brush piles or docks. Slowly jigging the bait or casting it near these structures can entice bites from crappie as they search for food and suitable nesting.

Early mornings and late evenings are when crappie tend to be most active, so consider fishing around sunrise or sunset for optimal results to reel in a good catch of these popular panfish. Happy fishing... may your creel be filled with delicious crappie delights!
