Any color that imitates a generic shad is a good crankbait choice. I like a lure that can run shallow but dive up to 12 feet and has a good, tight wobble. Crappie tend to key in on erratic action over a steady retrieve. I instruct my clients to stop the lure frequently and change speeds often. It's subtle changes that catch a crappie's attention

Type: Hardbait
Color: Silver
Weight: 1.5"

Midsouth tubes in some sort of variation of chartreuse. I like yellow and chartreuse or brown and chartreuse or pink and chartreuse. I put them on an eighth ounce Reeves jig painted either pink or white. I spool up an ultra-light spinning reel with six-pound vicious hi-vis line
