    Default Cool Underwater Crappie Video

    Thought this was cool in seeing how finicky those crappie are at biting the jig...

    Very cool! I've often wondered just how big of a fish I've had come by and sniff my bait. It's funny how little things can trigger the bite.

    Interesting video. There were a lot more lookers than takers for sure.

    I wonder what he could have done to trigger a bite rather than just a look. They seemed interested but didn't like something.
    More movement? Different color? Live bait?

    I'm with you, brother ...

    I couldn't help but notice that, too .... plus the fact that many of them seemed more interested in the camera, than the jig

    Sure were a lot of them down there !! Many seemed interested enough to "taste test" the jig, while many others approached the jig only to veer off after close inspection. It almost looked like the jig didn't "smell" right, or "look" right to those fish, and they rejected it without mouthing it.

    It really would have been interesting to see their reaction differences, had a wax worm or minnow been placed on the jig .... vs .... the plain jig. Even a spray of scent or a Crappie Nibble might have changed their interest level

    Good work on the video, Kickingback !! Thanks for sharing !!

    Must have been using a jig I tied! I think I get more lookers than takers most the time!

    I was thinking it was the lure color and the look of the jig overall. It just didn't look natural or good in color IMHO.

    Great Video and something I noticed in it. I have always been told and thought that your lure had to be above a crappie, that they always come up from under the lure to take it. It seems in several of the shots that the crappie were coming down from above to look at the bait. I am not so sure that it is as critical to be a exact depth or just in a certain range. There were a lot of crappie in that pic so I know that makes a difference also

    That jig just didn't smell right. Did you have gas or suntan lotion on your hands when you touched it? Way too many turned away as they got within smelling distance. Nice video by the way.
