Hey drew...

I have a couple questions for ya bout some crappie lures/plastics...

What's a good search lure for them and how do you work them?

And then once I find them, what should I use?

I hear a lot about power tubes but I don't know what size of jig head to use and then how to retrive them.

Thanks to anyone who has any answers for me!!!

Jordyn,

My favorite search bait for crappies are the northland thumper jigs in either 1/32oz or 1/16oz depending on depth/mood of the fish. The best way to work them is a slow and steady retrieve.

When you finally locate a school of fish, slow down and work them with plastics. Like you said, it's hard to beat power tubes or power minnows. I've also become a big fan of the berkley gulp alive 2"fish fry. The new 1" gulp alive minnows are also quickly becoming a favorite. I would use the lightest size jig that you can cast comfortably depending on conditions. For most situations a 1/32 or 1/16 oz will do the trick.

Just like the thumper jigs, I would retrieve the plastics with a steady retrieve, but it doesn't hurt to experiment with twitches and varied retrieves. Let the fish tell you what they want.

Hope this helps!

    •     ........if you are member of the LIVs. My 2nd graders think I am really smart at math as well. 
    •   No, but they wouldn't send them all to Belle Plaine where all the bleedies will take care of them, so what are we going to do? Man your pulling everything out of the old Libertarian hang book tonight.
    • Manafort was dumped quicker than a cheap date.   #pence2018
    •   No and no, I read it closely, but down here I shoot first then ask questions.                          
    •   Nice try.   You want me to rip apart your beloved Portugal?  There are hole everywhere.   First thing is first. This is a government policy, so this comes into play faster then a bullet..   " ...many of the problems stemmed not necessarily from a disagreement over the facts but a disagreement over which facts matter when it comes to interpreting the effects of decriminalisation."   Just like you Dave, only using the facts that fit your narrative.     HIV - down yes.   Due to eradicating drug dens, availability of needles, health awareness.   Deaths, over dose - yes (arguably)   Due to access of real drugs, not designer, dangerous synthetic weeds.     Homicides - yes/no Also there is no data collected for drug related homicides.       Drug users are not deemed criminals but as sick. Which immediately becomes a public expense.       -"" Goulão himself is skeptical of some aspects of marijuana reform in places like the United States, which he says can conflate medical use with recreational markets. "Sometimes I feel the promoters of this discussion are mixing things together using a lack of intellectual seriousness (Big Dave & Purple)," he said.""     This is just in 5 minutes, I'll go on doing this all day long. Leave you laying on the floor.   By the way, you just cut and paste articles. In no way way have you presented an intelligent reason why decriminalization would curb drug use.   Keep pasting,       

    • Come on Del like any good law we have to pass it to find out what is in it.
    • If you guys (Dave et al) are so "end the war on drugs" you ought to be able to say what that means.  How can you advocate something that you can't, or won't, define?    
    • You dont care about his statements on the 2nd amendment or his ties with radical mooslims as you put it?  
    •   I don't reside in his district and have no power to vote for or against him so I don't spend much of my free time thinking about him.
    •   But your OK with paying for people to sit in prison?   The reason you want to keep drugs criminalized is because they are dangerous, is it not?
