Best Baits for Big Slab Crappie ?
« on: Jan 21, 2008, 09:18 PM »
My favorite crappie lake finally has safe ice.  What bait/lure do you use to catch the slabs? 
Looking for JUMBO Perch, Crappie, and Bluegill

I stick to Swedish pimples tipped with a minnow, I also do well on jigging rapalas.  I am going to try the chubby darters this year also, I have heard good things about them.
BOILER UP!!!!!!!!!!!

My favorite is minnows but on certain days meal worms or waxworms work. Guess it depends on their mood and what they have a taste for. Ya gotta love it.......Wish I knew what days they wanted what. Could leave alot of bait at home in the fridge.
NEVER lied about the size of the fish I caught.....just remember them being BIGGER!!
