    I paint the lead with bright orange and use a red/chart. tube. Sometime use the white/chart tube. I met a old man down in Ms. and he called the white/chart the Missouri Mul. And I said why, he said nothing works harder than a Mo. mule......
     
  2. I just bought a four wheeler the other day and if you keep talking about crappie fishing im gonna feel even worse about not buying a boat. Your starting to give me the fever and i aint never really ever been. I sure wish that turkey season would hurry up so i could quit thinking about crappie fishing.

    Black and chartreuse is my favorite. I also like to have yellow and white, red and chartreuse on hand at all times. In the winter I usually use more white colors.

    It's hard for me to pick just one so I'll give you my three favorites..... They're the exact same as Gamegetters'. I have 4 boxes full of plastic jigs and 99% of the time these are the 3 colors I'm using. I also much prefer the solid body plastic jigs to the hollow ones, they are much more durable.

  16. Found a jig a couple years that I have been kickin' Pman's :ass: with at closeout and I'll be danged if I can't find em anymore. It was a red head, gold tinsel body w/ white maribou in 1/8th oz.. Guess I'll have to start makin' my own if I'm to continue the :ass: kickin' on Pman this year ;).

    Another one I've had good luck with is a plain ol' plastic smoke colored swimin' minnow or purple on a unpainted jig head. Recently have also been usin' Panfish Assasin' plastic bait's with straight tails with moderate success as well in a smoke/red half and half on a red jig head or unpainted.

    Mines the same as it has been for years. In dirty to stained water; I use a Southern Pro Tube, Black-tip, Green Body, Chartruse tail.

    For clear water the tube is clear, with red blue and silver flake. I'll throw a blue body with white tail sometimes in intermediate color water as a change up.

    Those three colors will catch 99.9 percent of the crappie that I hook. No need to even take anything else.

    It was mentioned before but to rig it I always stick the head up through the base of the tube so it is not showing. You get many less snags that way plus the bait looks better.

    I usually use a 1/16 ounce head but will go up to 1/8 if it is windy.
