Minnows vs. Waxies, Whats been working?

7 posts in this topic

I've been out several times in the last few weeks. I've used FatHeads, Shiners, and wax worms. Didn't try any crappie minnows though.

Minimal luck on minnows and better results on waxies.

Whats been working for you guys??

Here's what's working for crappies...

Eurolarvae (spikes, maggots) tipped on a diamond jig, rat finkee or forage minnow jigging spoon.

No bait...Pink and white Ratso

I'll give EuroLarvae a try on crappies etc..

I got a 5lb northern off of wax worms the other day, i though that was odd. Got him in on 2lb line though!

Have been out a couple times, sometimes it was a minnow, sometimes a minnow head, and sometimes a waxie. Haven't bought any spikes yet this year, but will be getting some soon. I try to always carry a puck of waxies and a puck of spikes. Along with some minnows. Never know what is going to work.

I have had much more success this year with euro larva. Most times when I have 2 lines down, I have one with euro larva and one with both crappie or fatheads, and I have had a lot more success with euro larva, both with sunnies and crappies.

My best fishing has come from jigging some type of rattling jig or the Outdoor Series Flutter Jig tipped with spikes, while having a deadstick down with either a fathead or crappie minnow.
