- Perfect Crappie Jig


    The BEST selling crappie jig in the USA!!! THE BEST OF THE BEST. As close to the colors of a small minnow as we could get!! Now also available in a ''HIGH VIZ' version. 
  • Cinnamon body, w/blue tail 
    Our original, which ALWAYS seems to work well under ALL conditions

    HIGHER VISIBILITY in the more DINGY waters created by the spring rains during the spawn period.

- Bass Pro Shops Triple Ripple Grub


Type: Jig

- Blakemore Roadrunner


Sometimes I'll tip them with a tube or grub to add even more action.

Type: Jig
Color: Chartreuse/White
Weight: 1/8 oz


- Rapala Fat Rap


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"





Arbor Knot



Non-Slip Loop Knot

Float Stop

Float Stop Knot2 





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
