How To Rig Crappie Minnows
It is very important to offer your crappie live bait presentation in just the right way so as to make the crappie get excited about hitting minnow bait presentation. It is also just as important to hook your crappie minnow correctly. You want the minnow hooked in a way that minnow can stay alive and swim freely. I want to address an excellent method of making a crappie minnow rig that is very successful. And don’t forget to read the last paragraph because I don’t want you to miss out on a rarely used crappie minnow jigging technique.

How To Make A Dual Crappie Minnow Rig Using Three Way Swivels
You can purchase these rigs commercially but if you want to save a few bucks here’s a step by step procedure to make your own.
Step#1 You will need to have some 8-20lb fire line. For comparison, the dia. of the 20lb test is the same as 6lb mono-filament line.

Step#2 Get yourself some 3 way swivels. The three way swivel allows the crappie minnow to swim freely in a 360deg motion.

Step#3 Get some 1/4oz egg or as they are commonly called “bass sinkers”.

Step#4 Cut 2 pieces of fire line approximately 10” long, tie a crappie hook on one end of each line.

Step#5 Cut 2 pieces of fire line that are about 12” inches long.

Step#6 Open the bail on your fishing reel, make sure you have your fire line going through the eyelets, now pull enough line out so you can work freely while your assembling your crappie live bait rig. Pickup one of the 3 way swivels and tie it to your line that is coming from your fishing reel.
Step#7 You now need to tie one of the 10” crappie hook leaders to the open eyelet that is 90degrees from the top eyelet of the three way swivel you just tied in step 6. If you do this correctly, there should be one open eyelet left, and it should be located directly below the eyelet tied to the line coming out of your fishing reel.
Step#8 Pick up one of the 12” inch pieces of fire line you cut in step 5, then tie one end to the last remaining open eyelet of the first 3 way swivel that is tied directly to the line coming out of your fishing reel. Now pick up your second 3 way swivel and tie the top eyelet to the other end of the 12” line you just tied.

Step#9 You now need to tie one of the 10” crappie hook leaders to the open eyelet that is 90degrees from the top eyelet of the three way swivel you just tied in step 8. If you do this correctly, there should be one open eyelet left, and it should be located directly below the top eyelet of three way swivel you just tied.


Step#10 Tie one of the 12” pieces of fire line to the open eyelet of the second 3 way swivel. Then tie the other end to your 1/4oz bass sinker. Make sure after you tie both ends that you have approximately 6” between the bottom eyelet of the second three way swivel and the 1/4oz. bass sinker.


Step#11 Now to complete your crappie live bait rig, hook a crappie fishing minnow in front or the back of the dorsal fin on both hooks. By hooking the minnow this way it should make the minnow swim freely, as if he were wounded.

The Little Used Crappie Jigging Minnow Technique.
Kill one of your
crappie minnows and hook it in the left or right gill. Drop your line and start
jigging the minnow. This will make your minnow appear to be wounded as it
flutters down in the water.

Well folks that concludes this article I
hope this will help you when you are using crappie live bait.
