Bass Pro's marabou jigs, Strike King Mr. Crappie tube jigs, Southern Pro plastic grubs and the Road Runner marabou jig with a spinner blade are some examples of jigs that are used to catch crappie. All of the jigs are available in a wide variety of color combinations and patterns.
Crappie jigs can be fished straight up and down in a jigging motion, drift fished below a bobber or float and cast out and retrieved in a straight line or bouncing motion across the bottom. The lures are designed to mimic the prey available, so matching the specific jig type to the food supply and water conditions of a certain fishery is important. Jigs are also commonly tipped with artificial and live bait to add attraction for the crappie.
