!p>Old School Crappie Fishing Family Secrets
If you are ready to step up your fishing you will usually catch more fish using artificial baits rather then using live bait. Of course this statement is based on knowing what artificial lures to use at the right time. When you are fishing for pan fish smaller is better. Look for lures in the 1/4oz or smaller size.
List of panfish lures to use:

  • Jigs: Curly Tail

  • Jigs: Marabou

  • Weedless Spinners, (they have a jig attached) smallest you can find

  • Willow Leaf Blades: Silver Colorado Or Gold Blades

You can purchase crappie fishing artificial lures at most any department store,on-line, or at a bait store. You will be surprised how little money you will spend. Make sure when comparing prices that you compare prices for artificial baits in the 1/4oz or smaller range.
Suggested ways to use these crappie fishing lures:
One of the better jig heads to purchase you can find at Cabella's.The jig head is specially designed, it looks like a cork screw. Add a colored curly tail and your ready to fish. It takes your bait to the bottom where the big ones are. It allows you to thread a plastic tube, or split tail onto the corkscrew and hook it through the tail. The innovative flat-bottom jig head helps the hook stand up at a 60deg angle. Your hooked bait stands up straight off the bottom and is free to move about. I recommend you use purchase and use a Karlins Lunker Curly Tail. This jig is a good choice to use when using a slip bobber rig.
If you are going to fish Marabou jigs purchase jigs smaller then 1/4oz. A good way to fish this lure is use a slip bobber , place a split shot on the line so the jig falls to a set depth.
Use a weedless spinner bait when you are fishing in waters of poor visibility, muddy or murky water. Try to use the 1/16oz size, smaller is better.
If you are using the willow leaf blade jigs, fish the crappie lure very slowly. One of the advantages of using the 1/16oz crappie jig, is that hook will bend before you loose your jig. The larger sizes work well but they break the line when snagging. Also , put on a Karlins plastic tube Curly split tail 2" in length.
Well I hope the information I have provided will help you on your next crappie fishing trip, remember the smaller the crappie fishing lure the better when fishing for crappie.
Well, good luck and good fishing!
