Favorite Spring Crappie Jig

Recommended Posts

huskiesplayer15

I know the ice fishing isnt over until the fat lady sings, but i think i can hear her woarming up in the corner, so I had to ask the usual spring question:
Was wondering what everyone's favorite go to bait was or is going to be this spring? Was also wondering, is the website the only pplace to get kick-n craws? If so what is the website address? i always have one rod set up with either a chartreuse cubbie jig, or 1/16 pink lead head jig with a 1 1/2 inch white twister tail. I also keep a rod set with a gapens, long thin bobber, with a green fatboy with a tail hooked crappie minnow.

I would also have to go with a flu-flu. Best color is the white head, pink tail.

I also love the flu flu my favorite colors are chartrues or purple depends on water clarity.
last year I wish I knew the name of them. There was a jig that came in a single tube. They had a body that looked like a slinky with a rounded tail. I wish I could explain it better for you guys. I used those more than I did flu flus last year they worked great. I think I got them at Gander.

always have two rods set up because when you are on them a tangle will cost you time.

I would go with the beetle spin, it is the most fun

I believe the slinky body, round tail jig that comes in the single tube is the Cubby jig, they do work excellent, for those of you who were describing it,

Yeah, I'd give the beatle-spin a close second, the only problem is all those pesky spring bass that just won't leave the darn thing alone. I hate that! grin.gif

1 inch Berkley power bait tube jig, BLACK, orange or yellow jig head. They have changed the colors to all those multi & florescents. Anytime I come across the black ones I buy them out. Anyone seen the black ones yet this spring? I know I can always count on Cabelas having them but looking for a place in the metro. Any help would be appreciated!

2nd favorite is a flu flu.

I like the line of Southern Pro plastics for my spring crappie fishing. A wide variety of styles and colors to choose from to accompany any situation.

Another hot choice that is going to be a hot item this spring for crappies is the Baby Kick-n-Craw in the 1.5 inch size. These babies have some great action and should trigger a lot of spring time crappies, as well as crappies throughout the open water season.

And then there is the good ol' trusty Beetle Spin, always a good choice for crappies. I've also been throwing a lot of small spinner baits similiar to the Beetle Spin for crappies and gills. Bass and pike like them too wink.gif

Good Fishin,
Matt Johnson

OK, as some of you know, I only started fishing for crappies late this winter, so here's a really stupid question:

Do you tip flu-flus with anything, or are they just used alone?

      Toddrun, You are correct. It seems as if it’s still larvea down there in big bay. Have seen very few , if any mayflies in the air. 
    • toddrun
      Nice fish Reid, We saw lots of clouds coming out of the mud also, but didn't know what was hatching.  Did see lots of dragonfly's, but not much for fishflies or mayflies in the air.  We didn't have any big fish luck for found keeper fish in the first rock edges around the mud. A guy in our resort claimed he caught a 32" Walleye, but we didn't see any pic's, so not verified, although had several witnesses that confirmed it.  Would have been nice to see it though.

      Bass is my favorite fish to eat.    I always keep them.   If anyone told me not to I would tell them to go to [email protected]#$.    I always eat everything I catch. Catch and release is a choice not a law.   As long as people eat what they catch I have no problem with what ever they catch.   Those who waste fish I have a problem with or those who catch and release too much and end up killing fish I even have a bigger problem with.   Don

      The OP specifically requested advice on how to best address what he personally considers an issue; respectfully. And yes, I do agree, and therefore respect his request enough to answer it; respectfully. I’ve personally dealt with the same conflict of interest in the past and feel that I understand the emotions on both sides enough to offer qualified advice that is more practical and useful than just saying mind your own darn business.

      Hit BSL on Friday to tryand find those slabs again... They were right in the same area as the last time I was out, but could not get one to bite to save my life... They were taunting me jumping all around me... I got some walleyes, nothing over 14" though... The bugs were horrible on the north side, so bad they drove me to the south side haha.
    • kfk
      If someone is legal keeping 15"+ bass, it's none of your business whether they keep 15"+ fish or not. Just walk away and leave it alone.  If you want to change the regulations, try doing it in the proper manner instead of a confrontation at the boat ramp.  I don't know how others would react, but if you approached me, it certainly wouldn't be positive experience.
    • Mike89
      so what do have against harpooners?????  the Indians did it before us????????????   
    • Reid Saarela
      28.5, but the fattest walleye we’ve seen. My dad and I both agreed it was a bigger fish than my 30 last summer. Wish we would have weighed it but I would rather have the fish swim off healthy! 
    • delcecchi
      I don't confront people on the water about what they do.  Expressing an opinion in general is fine.  Getting up in people's face is different, as I hope you agree.
    • IceHawk
      That's awesome Don. Very creative and looks like fun.
