Top 10 Crappie Tube Jigs

When it comes to crappie tube jigs, there are several options, and the best you can do is to just try several, rig them different ways, and hit upon a particular crappie tube jig rigged in a specific way that works best for you.

Just experiment until you do find whatever works best for you, and don’t be afraid to try something new.  In order to experiment, you will need to know how to put together a crappie rig using a tube jig and how to fish it.  There are many combinations that work, but this example will give you an idea of how one particular combination might work were you to choose to use it.

You might choose to use something a 1/32 ounce jig head such as the Mizmo’s 1/32 ounce crappie jighead.  It is a good weight for all purpose crappie fishing, and has a slightly oversized hook which makes it a little easier to get the paper mouth into your boat.  Tie on your jig head using your favorite knot such as a double rapala knot.  Put on your favorite color tube.  If you are fishing clear water, try a red and chartreuse spec, and in stained water try a purple and white instead.  Insert the hook into the top of the jig, thread the hook through he tube’s hollow body, letting the tube cover up the barb on the head.  Try to work this back and forth on the barbed point just a bit if you have trouble getting it seated properly.

Use whatever you normally use to fish for crappie–normally a long crappie pole–and put your jig into the cover you would normally fish, targeting brush, trees, and other natural or man made cover.  If you have trouble getting a bite, try fishing different depths and see if that helps.  Change colors if you want to try different variations and combinations until you hit on a winner that gets the crappie to biting!
