    I would say to use some spinners on a sunny day. The motion as well as the shiny spinners will catch their attention. Also, the murkiness helps you, the fish won't really be able to catch any mistakes (like the motion you put on your bait) that you make. It acts like a cover up.

    THanks for all the help. I just wish that live minnows were legal bait in my state.

    If the clarity is that bad your going to wnat to use something that is brightly colored and obnoxiously loud. Rattle baits are great and should work for both bass and walleye. Try some smaller brightly colored crank baits for the crappie. Rooster Tail spinners are also great for bass and crappie in cloudy water, and I have caught several fish with them.

    I would use a spinnerbait or a buzzbait in whether chartruse/white or plain chartruse.

    Ide go with live minnows for crappie. They always work well. Also for bass i would use Spinnerbaits with colorado blades and any kind of rattling crankbait. (My favorite is the ratt-L-trap)

    Jim in Mo,
    Yes, 2 lb. + crappie- the gill net studies that fish and game do every spring shows many at over 2 lbs.

    Here in Kansas there really isnt any clear water. The clearest water I have ever seen in a pond or lake had about 5 feet of visibility. Fish the same spots as you would in a clear body of water. Good Luck!!!

    Charley I was asked basically the same question by a young fella in the fishing section in the BX at Eielson Air Force Base Alaska. The Tanana River is solid mud water and he asked what’s the best lure for Salmon. I said dynamite works best! Didn’t know he was an ATF Agent fresh out of school and didn’t have a sense of humor!

    Actually live minnows work best!

    Charley,
    They don't have to see the bait, they know its there. A completely clear lake means somethings wrong with the lake.
    Are you talking about a lake or stream?

    2lb+crappie?
