For me, nothing beats vertical jigging a small crappie tube jig. Feeling that thump or weight on the end is just the best. I prefer a solid body tube on a minnow head and I like the jig to be red/chart. tail or black/chart. tail. There are times when sling shotting a small black/chart. tail grub under docks can be a killer technique on Loudon or Watts Bar. I've not figured the crappie out since I moved to Johnson City and have been fishing Boone. The water seems too clear to vertical jig in my experience but that doesn't keep me from trying from time to time. I'm hungry for crappie and see posts of slaying them on a simple bobber and minnow set up so I'm planning on taking my son to the lake Saturday to try it out. If it works, I may become a convert to bait. At least for a day.
