Best Crappie Jig Colors Guide

Once you hit on a color, or color combination that seems to be tempting the crappie to take your bait, just keep using it until they stop biting and then switch to something else. I understand that this approach seems less than scientific, and a little vague, but any experienced crappie angler will tell you that crappie do not always adhere to logic and science when it comes to what they will or will not bite.

Feel free to try the old ‘dark lures on dark days, light lures on light days’ school of thought if you would like, and if it works for you, great! It just seems like the single best way to determine what a crappie will hit, is to test the waters and determine what catches their interest at the particular time at which you are fishing.

Another tip for finding crappie or other fish is to simply work with the locals. You will see that they have the best availability to help you find the right type of bait, lures, and even fishing spots because they have the experience necessary.  It is always wise to have a wide selection of jig colors with you, too.  That way, you can try out a few different choices and find the one that will work the best for you.  You may even become an expert yourself at it!  Choose jig colors based on all of these factors when possible.
