eros are the ticket for me, waxies smear unless you use a new hook everytime and not let it get any bet dall

i like to use plastics tipped with eros, gets them to really go after em and hold on

This is my personal opinion. But presentation and location are far more important than bait choice. Lure size, drop rate ect...

Euros seem to hold the hook better and not just tear-off. waxies when theaded on the hook seem to pull right off so you have to rebait after every fish or so. Minnows the right size is key if to big hard to set hook to small most times smaller fish. Just my opinion or food for thought.

A GUM WRAPPER !!!

That is motivation.

I'm sure its just me.. but I dont have near as much luck with Minnows as I do waxies or plastics.

even though a spike wont come off,id reccommend changing the spike after every fish anyways cuz they have a scent pouch on the blunt end of the spike and all the scent will run out,i change my spike after every fish caught

I make sure I have everything with me because ya never know what they will be hitting that day. I can always catch fish on a small plastic and a waxie though.

I have to say that colored euros have worked the best for me,hands down. I tip a small jigging spoon with 3 or 4 and the pannies have been going crazy! I bought a couple scoops of minnows a few weeks ago and only used a couple.The crappies wouldnt even touch them compared to the larvae. I picked some up in the beginning of Jan. and they have held up great in the fridge inside the bait puck!

Last weekend crappie minnows out caught waxies on my spring bobber probably 2 to 1. Also, the fish that hit the crappie minnows were all keepers versus what was on the waxies. Not sure if that wasn't where I had the minnow in the pack of fish versus I almost always fish the top fish marked with a spring bobber and waxie. Shrimpo/Ratzo with a plastic body on and could attract them but not get them to bite with just the plastic.
