    Does the best crappie come from live bait?

  • #2
    The biggest Crappie that I have ever caught was on a spinner bait while fishing for bass. I do not think that it really makes that much difference what bait you use, but more how you use it and under what conditions. I have caught my fair share with a beetle spin. And I have caught my fair share on gambusia minnows.

      A live minnow hooked thru the back is hard to beat for crappie.

        You can sure catch them just fine on minnows but I have caught many more crappies on a black jig than anything else.

          I seem to have the best luck on minnows. Spring and Winter.

            The "best ones " come from clean, cool water.

              I caught a 6 or 7 inch crappie on a 3in. long spinner, and then caught a 12 incher on a worm so I say bait.
