Crappie baits?

4 posts in this topic

Hey i just broke out my tackle box and noticed that i was running low on crappie baits and plastics. Any suggestions for good baits like what jigs are good and what tails work best?

thanks!

In early spring to late spring I mostly fish tube jigs. 1 to 1.5 inch bodies, on 1/64 to 1/32 jig heads. The baits fall nice and slow. In early spring I put them about 18" below a sliding Wing-It Bobber, which lets me fish them even slower but still get a nice rise/fall on the bait and keep it high in the water column. Colors are endless and it pays to switch them up but in general I like blues, purples and reds --- including sparkles grin More often than not I do not tip the tube jig with a minnow, I fish it plain and just keep it moving along slowly.

Blue and White Crappie Thunder w/ spinner. Tip them with a minnow cast and retrieve. I have over 50 in my box that are all the same.
