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

    • Did well fishing today. Pitching jigs to the rocks in town produced fish. Also headed north up river and picked up some fish there. Released the females and kept a 2 man limit of males.  Couldn’t have asked for a better day of weather to be on the water.    
    • No pictures tonight because my phone was on the charger but I made no flip, smoked, hamburgers like this. ....   https://grillagrills.com/recipes/no-flip-burger-recipe/
    • Pfunk, I can take one of those jakes out for you! Slow first day for me, just one gobbling at the thunder.
    • You don't need one of those, they're overpriced anyway. Any smoker will do.
    • Thanks Dave. Sure wish I had one of them expensive fancy pellet grills.
    • yep sucker em with gobble call or gobbler yelps on a diaphragm ,they fit nicely in a deep fryer !
    • Man what a frustrating day. Had a pair of jakes that decided to spend their day in our vicinity and they ran off a pair of toms that were cutting across the plowing headed for us this morning, then this evening we were pretty confident the nicest tom we saw today would be headed past us to get back to the roost and sure enough... he followed the script. As I was readying the gun on him those 2 jakes decide to come out of the woods, he sees them, and dumps into the ravine with them chasing behind.    EDIT: Now 3 times they have run one off. That tom just made another attempt to sneak his way in and they ran him off again. Never wanted to shoot a jake as bad as I want these two gone.
    • O i know they can be.  I have a good CO and fire detector.  I had one in my last house and it worked good.  I dont plan on doing much sleeping in it maybe a few times a winter.  
    • It's basically how chicken is cooked for bbq contests.   I started out by trimming excess fat and skin off the chicken thighs. Then I make a brine of water, salt, brown sugar and franks red hot. I like to leave the chicken pieces in the brine for at least 4 hours.    I heat up the grill to 300 and melt 2 sticks of butter in a cake pan. When the grill is preheated and the butter is melted I put the chicken pieces in skin up but some do it skin down. I sprinkle my rub seasoning on the top of the skin and under the skin. Cook in smoker at 300 for about 1 hour.    Take pan out of smoker and take chicken out of butter. Dip each piece in bbq sauce and sprinkle on more rub and put back on grill for about another 15 minutes or until chicken is cooked to about 165-170.
