    Default Crappie on a crankbait


    Hey guys I知 considering purchasing a crank bait to add to my tackle box for catching crappie. I read an interesting article of guys have success with them. I知 considering going with a Rapala brand the pictures below are the two I知 thinking on. I wanted to check here first to see if anyone has used either or has a go to crankbait. Thanks for any info on this and be blessed.

    How do you plan on fishing them? Trolling is what most folks do. The ones you selected run awful shallow.

    Yes sir I plan to fish them more on the shallow end cast and retrieve. Do you think that would be worth it? Where I like to go there is a really nice cove that holds 3 docks I like to shoot and I alway see schools of bait swimming under and around the docks. My plan was to offer another presentation with just a cast outside of the docks.

    All of my fishing done from a kayak and haven稚 tackled setting it up for trolling. Anyway thanks for getting back to me.

    I've got a bunch of small plugs I got for ul bass and never used till last year. Went with a cousin to Ochoco Res for crappie and tries them on UL, worked great. Got a bunch of bass but no crappie. I'm still thinking they should work. Years ago I tried one of thoise origional Rapalas for trout in East Lake. They don't dive at all! Put a 1/2oz bead weight in front of it about 18" and hoioked the biggest trout I ever hooked down with the weight in bottom and the plug floating above it. Might work with these small floating plugs to put enough weight to take them down a bit.
