Hannibal.

My favorite jig color BAR NONE in dingy water is a Southern Pro 2" tube that is tipped on the head with black, body is green, tail is chartreuse. I think I've seen enough over the years to be convinced that day in and day out that is a superior color combination in dingy water. Not saying it's never been out fished but it is staggering how good it is.

Personally, I don't use minnows. You may get a few more bites with them but they seem to attract little heads.

Crappie nibbles are great. They are super for verticle fishing but they wear off pretty fast when you are casting so I normally don't mess with them then.

That's just DSG. I imagine you'll get some differing opinions. :cheers:

JHawkwx- Even a blind sow finds an acorn ever now and then! ;)

Hannibal-I told him, he said thanks! ;)

Parker-MY jig color got it's butt waxed one day by Grover and the yellow and white. It happens, but not often. Let's just put it this away, Grover uses my jig color most of the time too if that tells ya anything. :D A straight chartreuse is my second favorite by the way and the black chart that you mention is in third place. :cheers:

Hayzer-Humility is a virtue, but you wouldn't know anything about that would you? :D

Yeppers, DSG, it all depends on the day. Its the cloud cover, mood of the fish, temperature, etc........ That's why the pro crappie fisherman has to have the FULL ASSORTMENT OF JIGS! :D Cause you never REALLY know what the EXACT color is going to be! :D
