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!
