  • Best crappie bait is a good jig with the heavily modified tail section of the mondo worm. your clipping off damn near the entire front section just leaving part of the worm and that gloriously long tail. Works every time.

I too used to only focus on bass but got addicted to crappie last year. Nothin like that thump and I still catch lots of bass while targeting crappie.

  • Spider rigging with minnows sure thing to catch them in early season if you can’t spider rig use a crappie hook with a minnow on it with a 1/8 to 1/4 oz egg weight 8 to 12 inches above hook then drop down to just above brush pile or if you find a school of them drop it down on them stay above them a foot if you don’t get bit start lowering it down till you get bit

  • Color, color, color! You will find that crappie are absolutely the most fickle fish about color that you will ever run across. Should have been trying dark colors given the conditions of the day. I'm no pro by any stretch but if you ever find yourself around KY Lake, we'll give it a go. You'll get to see just how bad the invasive Asian carp problem is around here too.

  • I've been Crappie fishing for around 14 years, I catch Crappie year around, I've been catching them in a Creek arm off the river in 5 feet of water with some ice on the water this winter here in Oklahoma, caught a nice 2lber last week. The best colors I have found are black and chartreuse tubes jigs, I also do good with pink and chartreuse, pink and black, blue and white, white and chartreuse. I tie two jigs on and space them 12 to 18 inches apart. I also use power bait yellow Crappie nibbles. In the winter I've noticed the Crappie like a less active jig, maybe a few small movements and then hold it steady and they will give you some thump therapy.
