Jig/plastic combos for panfish

7 posts in this topic

Last weekend the gills were liking an orange moon glo with a purple icemite in afternoon then a chartreuse tungsten with a pink wedgie towards dark.  Next day the crappies were tough but coaxed a few with a purple pug and white ice mite.  Just picked up some gulp minnow fry to try, probably pair it with a drop xl.  Anyone else finding some effective combos for pannies?

I've always done well on pink and white, pink jig white plastic or vice versa.

I have been crushing panfish with the smallest pug bug and a white with red flake maki mino.  I have been trying other plastics but keep catching fish with previous set up.

Unpainted (silver) tungsten jigs with a black Powerbait Mayfly or chartreuse Powerbait Wishbone has worked well lately for bluegills.

A red Drop Kick paired with a red Maki Jamei has been a killer pannie and trout combination for two seasons now
