Secrets of choosing the best crappie lure

Don’t be afraid to experiment. That’s the best way to determine which lures are the best in any given situation. There is no way to know for sure which lure will get the most action until you give something a try. That’s why it’s recommended you take a variety of different ones with you and you will always be prepared no matter what mood the crappies are in.

Many anglers enjoy fishing for the crappie simply because they are an easy species to catch but they put up enough of a fight to make it interesting. You shouldn’t get bored when seeking after this species. They are the best species to go fishing for when teaching children how to fish or for anyone new to the sport.

The crappie will have a light bite that can be hard to notice if you’re not paying attention. Using an ultra-sensitive rod will help you feel when they take the bait but even then it could easily be missed if you are distracted. The more you practice the easier it will be to recognize when they strike your line.

As you can see, the only way you can really know which lure to use is by trying different things until you find the one that gets the most action. You can even try different lures at the same time when using multiple rods to discover which one is getting the most bites faster. Experimenting with different lures can also be a lot of the fun.
