    I've heard about trying alfalfa in sunken bucket with holes in the buckets suspend in the appropiate depths for crappie myself. Was gonna try it but never got around tuit. The hay appearantly attracts minnows and the minnows crappie. Needs to be located in some decent structure. Also heard about some taking minnows in a glass jar to attract crappie. Obviously o this is short term and the other is long term.

    The best method for attracting crappie is sinking brush or condos made from pvc or other materials to make your own spots. Have included a pic to show you one.
