    I like and use 1/16 and smaller jigs when the bite is tuff. I have a varied assortment of grubs spiders watcha whos and so on. When the bite is good I like regular jigs and small crankbaits, slab spoons and spinner baits both inline and smaller bass spinnerbaits. And my favorite is just plain minnows.

    Crappie/Trout Magnets and Renosky Lures Keystone Jigs. LETHAL. Another producer is the Panfish Assassin as well. Anything in Red/Chartreuse has produced wonderfully this year. God bless.

    I'm a big fan of tube jigs. Colors that usually work for me are red/chart, pink/white, red/white, chart/orange, blue/white, black/chart, and white. Southern pro offers a really nice kit from Cabela's.

    I generally use a 1/16 or 1/8 oz tube jig head and yellow and white tube. Other colors are red and white, all yellow, black and pink. I also use a bubble belly, aka baby bass assassin, in any shad or minnow color as well as chartreuse.

    I always use jigs for panfish. Northland tackle has a great assortment of crappie jigs. I suggest to any fisherman to check out the web site.

    That works great to, a plain hook and a minnow. I like the Lazer Sharp crappie hooks. $3.50 for 50 at Wally World.

    I use a 1/16 Tube Jig Red and yellow not neon yellow just yellow my wife and I have caught over 200 crappie this year on that jig it is the only one I will use. If the crappie are not bitting in my favorite spot we will eat sunflower seeds and spit the shells in the water. 10 min. later here they come. Don't know how it works but it does! Good luck!

    Crappie will bite on a variety of jigs. Sometimes it can change day to day or even hour to hour. I have a lot of luck with the crappie sliders. Fish them weedless and you can get the right in the stumps. Also use the panfish assasins and curly tail jigs.

    The best jig I get the most fish on is a pink head with a white feathered body. I tie on 2 onto my line with a bobber about 6 inches above the top jig and pop it every 3-4 seconds until I get a hit and reel it in. But for deeper water crappie fishing I use live minnow from the bait shop and normally fish 5-6 turns off the bottom.

    I have the best luck with the good old fashion feather jigs, fished similar to the way described above. A variety of colors, depending on the type of day/weather I am fishing in.

    One tip though, if you are using a feather jig, take it as soon as your are going to start, get it wet, and work the water into all the feathers, making them smooth and uniform. I have found you will get more strikes sooner than if you just start fishing with them. It takes some time for the feathers to allow themeselves to saturate and look like a tail, or whatever. Works around here anyway.
