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!

    • Wow, I didn't think single stage versus 2 stage snow throwers would become a Ford vs Chevy conversation.  My take is that for the average home owner with a flat, concrete/asphalt, standard three stall garage wide driveway, the single stage should suffice.  I will continue using my 2 stage at the cabin on the driveway and gravel parking/walkways.   Leech has me concerned on the Honda single stage, so now I just need to determine which to buy.
    • I wasn't planning on going due to the project list getting longer but I took my 7 year old out to sit last weekend. We got home and he was telling his mom all about it and how cool it was seeing deer walk by and how he wished there was more time in the season. That was when the wife asked why I wasn't going to go during muzzleloader and that I should go so I can take him out again. I felt like I had to be a good husband and just agree with her. Sometimes it's about compromising with your wife just to keep the peace in the house. 
    • I would bet that there will be people out on smaller lakes in the Detroit Lakes area this weekend. 
    • If time allows I will get out for a couple walks in the woods with the muzzy.  I didn't get anything with the gun and have yet to buy a bow license cuz time was spent chasing fall walleyes opposed to deer.  Good Luck to those that get out!!
    • Looks nice. You must have to be real careful with the saw to get clean even cuts and the bases.
    • Very cool, love the woodpeckers.  I save fat from my deer to feed them all winter. They seem to prefer that to the store bought suet cakes.
    • thanks guys, i've only owned 2 blowers. both 2 stage and the first one i think came over on the mayflower!!!!!!!!!!! guess i never paid much attention to other blowers!!!!!
    • Looks great! Big improvement in a small area
