Crappie Bait

When fishing for crappie, your choice of bait should be based on the area in which you are fishing, what season you are fishing in, and the weather at the time of fishing. Crappie will be attracted to different types of bait depending on the current situation they are in.

Since each part of a jig is separate, you can add variety to your bait by using different color heads, with different colors bodies and tails. The number of different colors variations are almost endless.

Jigs also make it easy to change bait. Simply change the body on the jig head and you are finished. Another advantage is the fact that new bait does not have to be tied on each time you catch a fish. This is especially important when you are trolling or using more then one pole at a time. Otherwise, you may find yourself in an overwhelming situation, having to mange poles in the water, reel in fish on these poles, and tie on new bait at the same time.

Perhaps the biggest advantage: jigs never die. By a slight twitching or pulling motion, your jig will come alive with motion each and every time.
