I ALWAYS have minnows when crappie fishing. I do however try and have some waxies with me too. There are times when they will turn a couple extra fish.

A ZEN MASTER

Always have been a minnow guy, but this new BIo Bait may change that somewhat, I have been impressed so far and look forward to testing it out some more.

Normally minnows early waxies later. Has to do fishs' appitite. They slow down as winter progresses so you offer smaller meals.
Actually a better answer would be: That's why they call it "fishing".

Never really use waxies/grubs. Minnows or parts there of have always turned even some very finicky biters for me. I've caught fish on bare hooks with just a tail section attached. The key is the ability to see em and work something into making them bite and there's nothing like working a "crappie" minnow and seeing that big mark come up to eat it.

I usually have a waxie on one rod and a small minnow on the other, both hooked on small glo jigs. If I am marking fish on the locator but not getting any bites, I put down my secret weapon...a plain hook and minnow. If that doesn't work I move!
