Best jigging spoon and why
« on: Dec 26, 2010, 11:46 PM »
Just wondering what you guys like to spoon with for crappies.  I have been having good luck with Northland buckshot rattle spoon in 1/16 fire tiger tipped with maggots.  What have you guys been using?

buckshots are great spoons. I dont fish crappie with a spoon very often, I usually opt for a jig or jiggin rap, but when using a spoon I lean towards CJ&S Slender spoon, they have great action and come in some great sizes for crappie

1/8 oz. glow casting spoon from www.fishwlb.com
Can't beat it in my area.
I've got the itch... No, not that one. It's the good kind.
It's pronounced "fay-len" (the x's are silent)

Northland Forage Minnow, 1/16oz.  I've actually caught many species on it, but the crappies seem to really like it.  I didn't know they made a buckshot that small.  Might have to get some.

I've also done well with a Forage Minnow 1/16 oz. My favorite is the Glow Chub, to which I added a dropper chain.

Smallest to next size up Forage or Buckshot have always produced for me in various colors. Gonna have to see how the new Fry minnows work. A horizontal instead of a verticle presentation may or may not be better.

I like Swedish pimples and kastmasters

Bare bones, all metal are the following:
Daredevel - it just works.
Little Cleo - something different.
Syclops - somedays I like to change up.

Sometimes plain, sometimes tipped:
Forage Minnow
Doodle Bug

Always tipped:
Kastmasters
Buckshots
Demon

And a whole bunch of others that I just can't name them all right now.

For more information read my MN nice journal

Couldn't agree more on this one.  I was out this morning and caught crappies, bluegills, perch and a largemouth bass on one of these.  Last night was more crappies, gills and a pike.

Jigging demon spoon from custom jigs and spins is good.

Same here, perch pattern 1/16 Forage minnow w/ waxie or 2. Always have one tied on one rod . Usually start a fresh hole with it then switch to small jig n waxie to seal the deal if needed.
