How To Make Your Own Crappie Jigs

When fishing in muddy or murky waters, you might choose jigs in colors easier for the crappie to see. If you’re crappie fishing at night, you may choose black and dark blue lures and jigs. If the sun is bright or you’re crappie fishing in the early morning, try brighter colored jigs.

The more life-like and natural your jigs appear, the more success you will have with catching your limits and having a successful fishing experience. If you have experienced trouble in the past with getting the right jigs in the right colors for your needs, you can now make your own.

When making your own crappie jigs, you may want to keep some store-bought ones as inspiration. Then gather as many of the materials from the list above that you can find. You may also want to bring along any tools you have that will help make it easier to create your crappie jigs.

Fasten the jigs together in ways that you think will work best for you and choose a variety of colors to work for most any time of day that you are fishing for crappie. You may even decide to carry some of these supplies around in your tackle with you in case you need to fasten your own jig on the spot for a particular occasion.

Remember there is no wrong way to hook a crappie. If you can catch them when they’re hungry and send them something appetizing, you can bet you’ll be reeling in your limits with ease. Happy crappie fishing!
