What size?
« on: Nov 24, 2017, 08:27 PM »
I know it might be a personal preference, but what size lures do you guys use for crappies? Do you prefer bigger jigs and spoons, or smaller?

i start out with my favorites and adjust from there.  if they are hard to come by, meaning i can see them and they r just not biting i down size and change colors.  if that does not work i change lures.  if that does not work i just get drunk and enjoy the peace and quiet.

Mostly use 3 and 4 mm Fiska's with a whip for the plastic.

I normally use a 4mm or 5mm jig with a 1.5" spiketail from VMC (or a similar sized plastic). I have used 1/16oz slender spoons with some luck as well but I swap out the small treble hook for a #10 shrimpo jig/plastic. I havent tried anything like a #4 Rippin Rap but I have heard some do well with those too

Whatever size it takes to imitate the basic forage they're after. 3mm or 4mm  Fiskas are the norm locally but don't underestimate 1/64 to 1/100 oz lead heads for a nice true horizontal presentation with #10 hooks with plastics.
