Perch eye or silver belly meat work really well and you can use one pice or eye to catch20-50 fish

My favorite is a #10 pink or froggie diamond jig tipped with a couple maggots. 9 times out of 10 that will catch crappie.

My favorite is a small treble hook and a Crappie minnow. Hook the minnow right behind the dorsal fin (try not to hit the spine). I'm gonna try adding a small spoon above the hook and see if it works...

Red glow CJ&S Diamond jig with 3-5 maggots has been working pretty good for me.

Live crappie minnow #1, Waxie #2,  2 Lb test line. Perch are not as picky as a crappie.

As far as bait goes I use scudbugs covered in Berkley Crappie attractant. Works like a charm!



Good luck!
