Glow red size 10 JR's Tackle Ice Minnow or a glow red Fatboy packed with maggots. I also like Custom Jigs and Spins Ratsos with a pink head and white body, all black works well on certain occasions too. Small 1/16oz jigging spoons are another good choice for Metro crappies. You usually weed out the potato chip bluegills when using the jigging spoon. I usually stick to a horizontal jig when targeting panfish unless I'm using a jigging spoon. Some of the vertical jigs that I will use from time to time include the Custom Jigs and Spins Ratso and the Genz Bug, both work great on pannies. Another brand that I'm becoming more and more fond of is Bad Dog Lures. I was pretty skeptical at first with all the bright colors, but they catch fish! I've pulled up walleyes and crappies so far this winter on Bad Dog Lures and there is a huge variety to choose from. Some of the styles I don't care for a whole lot, but there are several that I have with me when I hit the ice now...

Bad Dog Lures is also a FishingMN sponsor and they help to keep this site going. JR's Tackle and Custom Jigs and Spins are also site sponsors.

Good Fishin,

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
