crappie jig that comes in a plastic tube

Recommended Posts

They are kind of a paddle tail and they come pre rigged, anyone know the name of them? You usually can get them at all the bait stores?

I've seen them called paddle tails. I just saw some at FF yesterday, 5 to a bag in individual tubes, but the ones I saw yesterday weren't called paddle tails. They came in a blue package that said they were great for crappie, sunfish, and trout.

If you ask for PreRigged Paddle Tails, most fishing stores will know what you are talking about. Otherwise call FF in Burnsville. They had them in the clearance isle.

Another great jig similar to the cubby is the Tiny worms. You get three prerigged and three extra bodies for under 2 dollars. The jig heads are not the best but I like the bodies better.

The cubbys get a little to expensive for the bodies to just get ripped up right away for me.

Those Tiny worms are from Southern Pro. I use the Southern Pro Lit"l Hustlers, Pro Crappie Tube, Crappie Stingers, and the Hot Grubs. They have a soft plastic line up that is tough to beat(at least for panfish) and like posted above the price is right.

I haven't tried the Tiny worm myself, but I have had great luck with the mini mites. I've only got a couple of those mini mites left. I may have to put in an order for those Tiny Worms.

Not me. One of my favorite presentations is a Culprit paddletail paired with a Scenic tackle collerless jig. With the right jigging technique this combo is deadly.

Cal ! SHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!! grin

Those are my go to lures for crappies.( waiting for the shop to get in more of the junebug and char.) Don't overlook using these on a 1/16oz. jig with a collar( I trim the collar down some so it doesn't tear the plastics) for walleyes too!

not at all. culprits are my second favorite plastics. but mini-mites ALWAYS produce crappies when others dont.

mini mites can be found at fleet farm. i would personally recommend them for any fisherman looking for a simple, very productive jig, that can be used with almost any tecnique

the sheer number of different color combinations make the jig even better

I tried the Berkly Atomic Power Tubes last year and had better luck with those than any other plastic. I've fished with the mini mites before and the fish always bit on them but they never seemed to get the hook in the mouth. Instead they'd just bite onto that long skinny tail. It drove me nuts loosing all those fish!

mnsnow- when i fished mini mites the fish would just engulf it! it all depends on the mood of the crappies and how you fish them, during fronts and in the spring and fall, i fish them REAL slow under a float, popping it in an inch at a time. i never let it sit. works every time.

in the summer i cast it out toward deeper water along weedlines, and hold the rod tip high. that causes the lure to drop in an arc and the tail just goes crazy! the crappies just love it

    • Chops, brats, asparagus, onions and mushrooms in the foil and a little Malbec
    • Shrimp boil in foil packets on the pellet grill. Potatoes, corn, Andouille sausage, shrimp, lemon slices, butter and Cajun seasoning. I usually use some Old Bay in my shrimp boil but I was out and didn't know it until I started putting it all together.      
    • Hello from Sunset Lodge!

      In Minnesota, walleyes and pike have been found using crank-baits on the south side of Oak Island.  Walleye have also been caught pulling spinners in 26-30 feet using gold and green.
       
      In Ontario, walleye have been very active using pink and orange jigs on the breaks of reefs or casting shallow crank-baits in 8-12 feet by rocky shoreline points.  A good mixed bag of smallmouth and pike have been found with the walleye as well.
       
      Musky fishing has really picked up with lots of fish over 40+ inches.  Fishing sand and weedy bays near rock reefs have produced well using buck-tails, small crank-baits and top-water baits. 

      Until next week!

    • Looks like a great summer time meal! 
    • That was my wife taking a Snapchat vid of the kids, my daughter took that picture..  steak night is probably my favorite night, but taco night is a close second lol
    • At the all-star break and man did I blow it with the predictions lol.   Other than Rosario and Escobar not really much to get too excited about.   Nice home-stand before the break but its already been a big disappointing season. Of all the late 90''s  teams that were just awful and then the recent  90+ loss teams repeatedly over and over, this years team has to be the most frustrating of them all. Definitely a regression.   Buxton/Sano I dont want the team to give up on them but good grief. After some progress last year I think everyone was expected big things from both of them. I would say give up on them but players like these always go on to shine somewhere else when the Twins let them go.   Mauer has been ok, nothing great but good to see him back hitting again after his stint on the DL.   Morrison dug himself too big of hole to get out of with a terrible start at the plate. A few signs of power but not enough.   Dozier is losing millions with a bad first half. So much for him signing a big deal somewhere else and the Twins getting something for him if he is traded.   The new pitchers Odorizzi and Lynn haven't been great. Gibson has been better than expected but too bad he cant get any run support he has pitched well all year. I like Berrios, good young pitcher still making improvement. Its too bad Santana hasn't been able to get back up and contribute yet.   I hope they don't make any foolish decisions and trade and try to make a run. They don't have a chance at the wild card and even though Cleveland isn't completely dominating I don't see the Twins overtaking them in the division.
    • I like that you caught someone else taking photos of the feast too!
    • That's an impressive pile o meat smallie!! Wow did I start a ruckus with a misspelled word, I'll be more kareful next time!!😉
    • Looks like kind of an expensive grill though.........😱
