Secrets Of Using Crappie Tube Jigs To Slam Crappie

Largely, it is a matter of taking the time to find out what works best for you in the areas in which you fish, but many people find that a 1/32 ounce tube jig works well especially when used with a #2 size hook. To rig this, just tie the jig head with whatever knot works best for you.

Attach a tube in a chartreuse or red color tube in clear water, or a purple and white in murky water, or choose your own personal favorite color tube instead. Insert the hook in the head of the jig, much like you would a worm, then thread that hook right through the hollow of the tube until it covers the lead barb on the hook.

All in all, if you find that it seems that the crappie you are seeking seem to be hitting on minnows more often than on your tube jigs, just switch to red and white, but red and chartreuse seems to be the best color choice as a general rule. As always, you need to be able to adapt to the situation, and you can do that readily when you know what works, what doesn’t work, but most importantly, what other options there are.  Many anglers make the mistake of being hooked on just one method; believe it to be the only option.  That’s not the case.  Vary your options to get the best results possible.
