Crappie Fishing Lures: The crappie is considered an excellent game fish when taken on light tackle. Extreme care must be taken in landing these fish because their mouths are very tender. Anglers specializing in catching black crappie know that to be successful the bait must be kept constantly moving. The best Crappie Fishing Lures are Jigs with small minnows or plastic minnows cast along the outer edges of weed beds or submerged structure. The crappie like to lie in weed beds in deep water during the day and bite best in early morning or toward evening. In summer, with the abundance of small fish for feed, they are more difficult to catch. Tiny Jigs and small minnows are used as bait in the winter.
