Hey FishinWithTrav,

Welcome to My Fishing Pals. Glad to have you aboard!

I use 1/80oz or 1/100oz jigs, or crappie minnows. Seems to work for me. If one is not working, I switch to the other.

your headed in the right direction sir but i would use the crappie bites for a late ice bite towards the end of the year thats when the artificials really seem to produce. right now they seem to really be loving crappie minnows i have had a ton of luck with euro larva and fat heads not so much with waxies wich i find strange. anyshot what i have been doing is having three to four rigs set up on with a swedish pimple laced with euro larva or crappie minnows i use that as a mornig shot. mid-afternoon ive have been using little buck eyes or teardrops with again euro larva and crappies with the occasional fat head half piece. night bite ive been using blood hooks with same and or glow jigs with the same with a slip bobber set up seems to me i need to have that bobber with the bite so strong lately sometimes i go senial and forget lol. good luck and saty warm hope it helps

i have been using a flat pink jig that is probably older than i am (28) and a crappie minnow... it seems to be working for me in the metro area.

cool thanks, i'll have to get back out and try some more. we have had about the same luck with crappie minnows as we have had with the artificial bait. 3 of us went out all of us had different bait i had the crappie bites one had waxies and the other had crappie minnows we each caught 2 crappies.

Hey Trav, I use glow jigs with crappie minnows at night and I light up jigs with mini flashlight every time I pull it out of the water. Works great for me! Good luck and have fun!
