I haven't had to change my presentation at all so whatever worked earlier should work now!!

a crappie minnow and some kind of glow jig always works for me, and if they get picky I down size to a waxie

As I posted earlier -- I killed them on Big Pine on a red glow rattle buckshot spoon and about 2/3 a minnow.

A deadly presentation right now.

I found that either the smallest size chubby darter or a frostee glow jig works very well. Both of which I tipped with a minnow head

I've found that crappies hitting on glow red jig/minnow before sunup, and glow white jig/waxie in the shallows during the day.

WEll the last few days appretly they have been biting better on waxies, spikes, mousies, and an occasional minnow.

As the season progresses I would say the larger profile minnow imitations will become more and more productive. The 2" power minnow will be my go to bait very soon.

I've been using Euro Larva all season with a glow jig. I'm not loosing right now. All colors of larva are working. It sure is FUN!

Well I didn't pull in any crappies today...Fished on olaf..caught a lot of sunfish and a few bass using fat boys, frisbee jigs, frostee jigs, and a few other things.. nothing would touch a crappie minnow. the only action i got was when i had a wax worm. anyone have any tips or info? or any other lakes in the Pelican are that are doing fairly well with crappies?

Thanks

I'm a bit farther north than you but the crappies have been biting pretty consistantly on a few lakes.

      If you chase panfish late ice, make sure you get a sled with high sides. My Otter Pro has already made several water crossings, while keeping my gear high and dry.

        You just have to remove any and all the bird seed at least 10 minutes before the warden arrives and you're legal.    Near as we could tell the little guy got spooked by something and when he barreled through the yard the clearest path seemed to be the lower deck due to our loaded sleds n cars n stuff.  The most daylight was coming through the railing.  Instead of jumping the railing he lowered his head to part the spindles like saplings but these didn't move!    If you look at the spindle above hind quarter you can see the mark where his face planted.  There was a tuft of hair stuck to it that matched what was missing by his eye.   I was out there when it happened.  I didn't see him do it but heard the crash and the bellar and thought someone fell.  I hustled up there calling to see if someone needed help and found the deer kicking and taking his last breaths.  The others in the house heard it too and came to the door.  We were all pretty stunned.     Thats the best I can come up with.  I hope you can buy it!

      Mercury is emitted from coal burning power plants and can travel a long ways.  Sulfate or maybe it is sulfide is from mining.
