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.

    • That little doe is a sweetheart. Reminds me why I gave up hunting. But I did it for more than six decades from MN to MT to AK and Canada. Before somebody jumps in with a snide  comment, I don't care if YOU do it but it is just not for me any more. Carry on. Nice pix....couple nice looking bucks.
    • I fish for monster bass too. But yeah, when one is the master of walleyes one tends to be an elitist... 
    • I agree; stay away from the extended warranty.  If my dealership (Village Chevrolet) won't honor the original warranty, what makes you think they will honor an extended warranty?  This problem was discovered well before my warranty ran out and they still treated me like an ugly sister...

    • You two must be elitist walleye guys. 
    • I can't say I'm much in agreement with Gary Johnson on this issue and I can admit it. I will say however that it makes more sense than the deal Pence struck with Carrier.   1. The carrier deal handed away state money while still being a net LOSS of jobs in that state. Johnson's program enticed new business into his state and resulted in a net GAIN of jobs and probably tourism dollars as well.  2. I think these types of deals should be handled as locally as possible. It's called representative government. Maybe it makes sense in the New Mexico deal that it be handled at the state level since it probably effects the state as a whole at least to some degree but I don't know. The Indiana deal should have been handled locally, especially if any of the tax cuts promised were property taxes. Those benefit communities at a more local level and the jobs saved benefit communities at a more local level. The state government possibly should not be handling these things but the Federal Government most assuredly should not be involved in these deals.  3. I'm pretty sure that the threat of interference with federal contracts had much more to do with the Carrier deal anyway so why did they give Carrier any tax breaks? I thought Trump was a tough guy and a strong armer? In the New Mexico deal, tax cuts are about the only leverage someone would have to bring that extra revenue and jobs into the state.   I'll say it again, I'm really not in favor of the government picking winners and losers. I do think the Pence deal is something that happens every day but the only difference is it happens at a local level and you don't have a blow hard President-elect taking credit for it normally. Time will tell whether it was a good deal or if the rest of the manufacturing community will hold the Government for ransom now like every professional sports franchise does these days.    Gary Johnson is in favor of replacing the current Tax code with a 'Fair Tax" system.
    • I think Purple means, our BullHeads!
    • I replaced my transducer on my  fl 18 with a proview  last winter very pleased with it. I thought my vexilar was going bad it was not picking up my hook anymore.  Replaced my transducer with a new proview worked great last spring crappie fishing. Replacing the transducer on my fl 12 with a proview this week.
