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.

Sounds like you have a lot of good choices.

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.

      I just checked the cedar Island Access there was about two-and-a-half to three inches of ice

      Not sure how much ice, but guys walking out with portables in the bay this morning.

      Took a drive around the lake today. The only open water I saw was in the middle out from Holiday Resort. Rest of the lake was covered with ice. When I got home I went out to check the ice thickness in front of my place. Went out about 5 feet from shore and chopped a hole with the spud bar. Measured 2 inches of ice with my measuring stick. Went out to about 15 feet from shore, chopped another hole and measured just a hair under 2 inches. Went out another 5 feet and brushed away the snow with my boot as I had done with the other holes. Hit the ice with the spud bar and all I could hear was cracking going off in every direction. Retreated to the shore. Going to give it a couple of days and check again. Hope we don't get that snow for Saturday night and Sunday.

      Yeah I thought if that. Just looking for other opinions.

      Check craigslist see if there are any boats like yours on there. If so how much are they asking.
