For me it's been the glow color. But like Jon said all colors will have their moments.

Sportsmans warehouse and Scheels have them in the 12 bulk packs without the jig heads. Otherwise Fleet has the 10 pk with a couple jigheads.

You want to look for them with the Mico size stuff. I couldn't find them at Gander because I was looking in the regular plastics area.

I've been using primarily a #6 Little Atom Optic jig. But I have also used a 1/32 & 1/16 collarless jighead as well. There are a few other ice jigs with a long #6 hook shanks that will work as well.

Good Luck!

How do you fish these in open water for crappies? We do a fair amount of early season fishing in shallow water. Do you use a bobber or simply cast and jig?

They work very well for open water, which what they were originally designed for. They will work well rigged either way. Under a bobber with a little wave action they will excel.

Sorry for all the questions but I'm a plastics rookie. If you use a bobber, how do you hook the plastic to the jig? Like a live minnow behind the dorsal fin?

No, you just run the hook from the head of the plastic as far as you can back. This way the hook is closer to the back of the bait and will help you hook more fish! With a lot of the plastics that I use it is vital that the bait is horizontal in the water!

      I am definitely in! My boss also gave me permission to start looking at jet boats this spring. We have to get rid of a 3rd car first but I do believe a Lowe 1760 pathfinder with a 115/80 will also be in my future!

      Eskimo cs is top notch. I have had 2 different pop-ups and have a 949i now and love it. Wasn't overly impressed with the flip over pop-up at Cabela's though. It seemed to have less room out in front of you than the other flip over from clam and otter.
