Plastics For Panfish


Recommended Posts

What plastics are your favorites?

Starting about a million years ago I have used to use a tiny fireball jig-n-minnow with very consistent success. This bait almost always out fished live bait. They are no longer made and my supply is finally depleted, what should I go to next?

Thanks in advance

Gulp has been my go to minnow shaped plastics,  although you could mold and make your own.

for crappies gulp alive 2.5 black shad is a great bait for me set on a 1/16oz jig.  tube jigs are great also!

I finally got out fishing last week on Thursday. I used a gulp alive minnow. one of the smaller ones, and it worked great. I put it on a pink ratso with a white body and the gulp on it and the crappies and bluegills would not leave it alone. Other baits were not as effective that afternoon.

yeah the 1" are nice also...I just like the 2.5 for the durability (less rebaiting) and the more selective fish it tends to catch (bigger) :)   Glad you got out and found success.  The ratso and the shrimpo are also good options to use also as I have had many great days with no bait and one of them on.  Another fun option is a plain flu flu no bait.  Good Luck!!

Hey Roony...  I've been fishing for panfish for 60-years now and have tried about every panfish lure made.

 

I finally lucked up on one from a guy that flat catches more panfish than anyone I've ever seen.

 

I will trade you 25 of these super lures (and where to get them) for a day's fishing with you this summer.

 

If interested, simply pm me.

 

Thanks

Thanks a lot for the offer but I think I found what I need. In fact the crappies and bluegill were jumping out of the water to try to get at it while I was walking down to the dock!
