iv been fishing this little lake near me for some crappies doing great around the shoreline and break lines but there to small to keep.
iv been noticing the bigger ones are surfacing all over the deeper water iv tried several different days trying to get them they start surfacing about 6 till after dark iv tried bobbers with small minnows euro wax worms small floters light ice fles jigs all the normal crappie stuff you name it they just want those little tasty bugs there eating
they are crappies seen them surface 10 feet from the boat
probly could net them if i tried
there just going nuts feeding on the surface
have any ideas im stumped

I have been fishing a similar situation and I have found to put your jig 6 to 10 inches under the float....cast right into the pod of fish and if they don't bite it right away, twitch it a little and they will see the jig come up and they should slam it then....just keep working them and they will bite....I have been using a small Thill bobber and casting into the pod of fish, they don't spook with that float....good luck and keep us informed as to how you do....I have been using T.H.E. Jig and also a 1/32 ounce jig head with some Loby Baits plastics on that jighead.... cool smiley

It's been awhile so I'll throw my 2 cents into the frey.
Small hair jig are what I'll use. You can buy the feather kind off of the rack however you'll want to give a few as they fall apart after a few uses.

Do what Kevin said to do & you'll be catching those crappies.
You can go back and read some other posts I've made to see this way of fishing slabs works.

Here's one of my customers with a slab.You'll notice T.H.E. Jig in it's mouth.



So much for the infomercial.
The main idea is to get sorta small.

Small plastics work too.Any of the small (1&1/2")or smaller plastics will work.
Here's one with a Loby's bait in it's mouth.

I haven't tried it myself, but have you tried tying a jig off the back of a top water plug.. sorta a 'float and fly' as In-Fisherman calls it. A smaller jig such as CK's 'J.I.G' would work as well as any regular wet ('sinking') fly tied about 10 inches off the lure. I believe you take off the back treble and tied to the eye that treble was on.

Thats what T.H.E. Jig does SF. It's got a slow fall.Deadly if I don't mind saying so.
