Alright, what are your favorite colors for crappie?

I have my best luck with pink/white, black/chartreuse, and black/white. Mostly 1/16th and 1/8th ounce jigheads.

I've seen some interesting newer patterns out there like electric chicken...haven't tried it yet...yet!

I havent had much luck here in PA, but back in Wisconsin I use to use the pink/white alot... as well as yellow with black head ones with good luck... Use to use 1/32 ones with a twister tail on them on a slip bobber rig and had a lot of them that would take the bobber down before it was even upright...

White, yellow, and chartreuse, in that order. Usually a twister tail, but also have luck with marabou and small tubes.

I have heard great things about the Gulp lineup for all types of panfish. Plan to invest in some this Spring!

Love the gulp minnow for crappie and bluegill. I use the 1" early in the spring and then switch to the 2" later when the water warms up. I feel the bigger bait will catch bigger fish and most of the time that is true.

Never tried the 2", but will now. Thanks!

I favor a 1/16 oz shaddart with red head, white body & white tail! Sometimes I switch to yellow but white hair has consistently produced through the years.
