I have not fished a lake in the last six years where I could not catch crappies with a 1/32 oz pink or white jig with a clear green and sparkle twister or squid body. The trick to catching them is to slow troll the weed line ( about the 12 foot depth ). My brother and his son where in from Minnesota yesterday so we went to fish a lake I knew had crappies.
We got our limit in five hours. The fish were not large 9.5 to 11.5 inches, but my nine year old nephew had a ball. The color of the plastic body should vary with light comditions. On a dark day use dark body and on clear sunny days use bright body.

Artificials: mini mite jigs(small) or pinkie jigs are my favorites.

Live: nothing beats a small shiner/fathead minnow on a size 10 thin wire hook and a small split shot either with or without a small bobber.

Eating: my favorite panfish. can't beat clean white meat.:lol:

We have used 2 rigs successfully. A crappie rig, which has a silver spinner and red or green bead attached with minnows. May have to custom make these rigs. Also a horizontal jig tip with a cut minnow if the minnow is large or an entire small minnow. The jig should not be too large and the colors should be bright to attract the crappie. Love them fish!


No one left out = full inclusion
