There are certain times I prefer artificial lures over using live bait when crappie fishing.



If the water is stained or has alot of color to it, I do better on things like small grubs or tube baits. (black with chartreuse is my favorite color)



If I am trolling for crappie..hand down its a small crankbait like the #5 shad rap or a small Cordell rattle trap.



If I am crappie fishing in very clear water..I prefer a live minnow. Small minnow on a #6 hook with a tiny splitshot sinker. (just enough weight to sink the minnow but be can still swim freely.



What does everyone else like?
