You really cant go wrong with this unless you tried to use a bass bait for crappie. LOL.

But any tube jigs, twister tails etc will produce crappies. I like the Berkley Gulp 2" minnow or grub. White & chartreuse colors. For a tube I like chartreuse or red/white.

I will toss panfish spinners to locate crappies on a lake. Its a quick way to cover alot of surface area. Once you locate them switch to the plastics.

I love to use floo floo jigs....not real sure on the actual name of them...but they are just a jig head with feather tails.....smaller ones usually work better....they are killer with a crappie minnow on em...

I go with the flu flu's that are pink and white, just can't go wrong with them. I tip with a gulp maggot or piece of crawler.

I use 3" Gulp! Alive! minnows on a 1/16th oz chart. jig head. Using the 3" keeps the little guys away! I limit out on these for bait no problem.

Both my go-to choices have been mentioned but Gulp Alive 2.5 black shads on a 1/16oz jig and Berkley Atomic Tubes (really like orange) has also been great search baits and big producers for me this year......Since the spring my catch rate hasn't really slowed down using primarily these two baits!!

#4 Salmo Hornets are a great search lure to find crappies, I like to troll them through an area and when I catch a fish I will go back and work over the area with some lures mentioned above or jigs and minows.

flu flus tipped or bettle spins pitched around the area and them stomp the rest with a crappie minnow or grub under a slip bobber

Puddle Jumpers!!! They have been my go to bait this time of the year for quite a few years. Mini-Mites and power minnows are my next two favorites.

    • Whatever happened to reinhardt1?  He caught a lot of heat down here because he was so enthralled with Michelle Bachmann, but when he left Sillytown, he moved to the cooking thread, and he was very knowledgeable about cutting and preparing meat, since he was a butcher by trade.  I never spent much time in the cooking forum, but I would read reinhardt's posts occasionally.   I didn't mind Lmitout, but I've been frequenting these forums since the wild & wooly days - back when Jackpine Rob & the crew was on here.  Lmitout was pretty tame in comparison to some of those guys...   One who comes to mind went by the handle "Mariner Magnum"...                
    • Fun time at the river
    • There you go again, calling names.   "senile elders"  "brainwashed baby boomers"   "need the blue pill"     Are you serious dude?   And you wonder why folks don't take your alternative chiropractic talk seriously? 
    • some are still here, just not as busy posting.
    • The administration I referred to was not the Obama administration.  Don't edit me when quoting.  It was the HSO administration. 
    • Like I said I pop in from time to time , not like before. I do remember you rundrave stepping in and commenting on all the babble when the cooking thread crashed, you think that was the only babbling going on here? Hey, your a mod and we're just trying to cool things down, I get that.  In my opinion it came down to the cooking thread was dominating the rest and some didn't like it.  But if you want an answer on politics ,you don't have to look hard..
    • Rage, ok, thats funny. More so making light of rebels transparency regarding not being able to handle differing opinions and allowing his homeboys to throw out as much smack talk as me, only i come a little harder and sensative people struggle with their emotions.  Hence deleting a post with no rules breaking.     This whole post was a story, made up to start something. Nice troll work OP, i knew it a long time ago but played along cause it was fun but now its just a bunch of senile elders or brainwasher baby boomers that cant exchange without feeling like they were talked down to. So soft and zero passion for anything worthwhile, thats why you all need the blue pill.    
    •   Well shistter,  I had to WiKi the curry wurst so it looks like a real deal!   Currywurst (German pronunciation: [ˈkœʁiˌvʊʁst][1]) is a fast food dish of German origin consisting of steamed, then fried pork sausage (German: Bratwurst) typically cut into slices and seasoned with curry ketchup, a sauce based on spiced ketchup or tomato paste, itself topped with curry powder, or a ready-made ketchup seasoned with curry and other spices. The dish is often served with French fries.
