What is the best jig for Crappies?

Recommended Posts

Way to many to choose just 1. Hook and minnow has caught tons. Northland forage minnow and forage minnow spoons work well. Ratfinkees and shrimpos. The list goes on and on.

The TackleCity.com Crappie jig kit is pretty darn good. Glow Devils and yes, Angel Eyes as well.

I like to use a Glow Devil as my search lure when 1st locating crappies on Upper Red Lake.

When they stop slamming the heavier Glow Devils I tone down to a fluttering Angel Eye or lighter Glow Devil and when that slows then tone down some more to the TackleCity.com Crappie Jigs.

phelps tick, or snake jigs in red glow!
second my red glow angel eye.
that is just for the big red. each lake seems to be different. that lake is definately different. some lakes require the plain hook with lively minnow to fool the wiley crapodile wink.gif

Glow demons with minnows, pounders and genz worms with waxies. It really depends on the lake, pressue, and mood of the fish. What I mentioned above though catches lots of fish.

Do not you mean MR MOJO RISIN?

You cannot spell JIM MORRISON by rearranging MOJO RISING.

Just my 2 cents...

This is not a steal from the great Jim M. This was a nickname giving to me from Co-workers. My sales kept rising year after year.

My best this year has been a 1/16th oz Cicada. Its not a jig but it sure works like a champ. Caught lots of finiky crappies and sunnies with this thing.
My second best has been a glow devil for crappies.

Genz fat boys glow in several colers has worked very well for me over the past few years. Tipped with waxies, minnow heads, or whole minnows depending on what they want at that time.

You really should take a look at the Tackle City Panfish jigs. The Fat Fry are about 1/4 the price of fat boys with better hooks and definitely a better paint job.

Save money get more jigs and get better jigs.

Wow, Those jigs look nice! I never looked at the panfish and crappie jigs before now, only the Angel Eyes and Glow Devils. I was "stareing" at the paint jobs for a while....They're almost artistic! Are those things hand painted or what? If I'm correct, you get 50+ jigs for less than $20, that's a deal. Well, I think I'll tell the girlfriend that some of my Christmas shopping can be done right here. Maybe I'll hang a few on the Christmas Tree! smile.gif

One thing that has turned a lot of crappies for me. Take a glow Rat Finkee and cut the rubber/plastic collar completely off so you just have a tiny glow jig, then I bend the hook making it shorter but with a wider gap (like a Northland Fireball jig) tip with a small crappie minnow and presto. I use this setup a lot in the metro, small presentation sems to help. Had minimal success on URL with it, they wanted something bigger.

A ZEN MASTER

    • Just picked up a 1978 Bethany compact 560. Got it set up but I can't figure out what these 2 adjustable poles are for.  Anyone know? 
    • friend good luck to you and your wife!!!!   I do know where you are at....  my prayers to ya............
    • Anyone been out this past week? My bird hunting has been cut short this year so I am depending on others to keep me up to date. My wife has Breast Cancer and is starting radiation treatments soon, lasting a good part of October. I may be able to do some deer hunting depending how she is feeling. She has had surgery and the outlook is great and she feels great so that's the main thing. Good luck to all you hunters.
    • dont everyone post at once!!!!!!🤣😂 hummers bailed from itasca county, got a couple still around cold spring, seen them yesterday. but i havent seen any robins in a while. anyone else???????????????????????????????????
    • My routing was keep all the drive train zerks greased every few outings, change oil & filter yearly and front and rear diff by-yearly unless I did a lot of swamp running.  There are a bunch of helpful videos on the Tube. 
    • I was out today putting up a deer stand and came across a lobster mushroom. I don't think I have seen any this late before. I will be enjoying the little gem tonight.
    • thanks for the write-up - and great pics!  hopefully these stories will keep me interested until i have my own west hunt.   good luck to all
    • Always enjoy the "out west" write ups!!!  I really appreciate you taking the time to share your journey!! 
    • Well I wasn’t going to do any fluid changes untill next fall but it’s been a little more than a year and I just clicked 1k miles. About 30-40 hours since last oil change. I think I’m just going to do it. So last time I just took it to a dealer but it’s expensive, the machine is gone for at least a week and it’s a hassle to deal with dropping off and picking up. So I think I’m going to try it myself. I’ve changed oil on things many times before so this isn’t anything new. I’m going to get ahold of my dealer and see what I need and have them walk me through the steps. I want to change the oil, the front and rear gear case oil and I’d like to do the transmission fluid also. I also just saw Polaris has a deal now through the 1st of oct for $10 off an oil change kit. So I think I just need an oil change kit and a quart of gearcase oil? I also have a new spark plug I’ll through in and go through the machine like I always do every few months. I know @leech~~ had a magnum what did you always do for maintence? 
    • enjoyed the story but this view is incredible  your lucky you get to hunt there
