Violent Strike Lures Crappie Jigs

Crappie are one of the most popular game fish in North America, and for good reason. They are delicious, they fight hard, and they can be caught in a variety of water bodies. Spring and Summer are popular times to fish crappie, as they are shallower and related to cover. One of the most effective ways to catch crappie is with a jig.

A crappie jig is a small, weighted lure. It is often tipped with a soft plastic bait, such as a minnow, grub, or worm. Jigs can be used to fish in a variety of ways, including vertical jigging, casting with or without a bobber, and trolling.

Choosing the Right Crappie Jig

There are a few things to consider when choosing a crappie jig. The first is the weight of the jig. The weight of the jig will determine how fast the jig will sink. For shallow-water fishing, a 1/32-ounce jig is a good choice, as you want a slow drop speed in skinny water. For deeper water fishing, a 1/16-ounceĀ  jig is a better option.

The next thing to consider is the color of the jig. Crappie are attracted to a variety of colors, but some of the most popular colors include pink, chartreuse, white, and black. You should experiment with different colors to see what works best in your area.

Finally, you need to decide what type of soft plastic bait to tip your jig with. Minnows, grubs, and worms are all popular choices. You can also experiment with different types of bait to see what the crappie in your area prefer. We use Berkley GULP Alive 1″ minnows and 2″ minnow grubs with excellent results.

How to Fish a Crappie Jig

We like fishing crappie jigs under a weighted float (bobber) just large enough to float the lure. Adjust the depth so the lure is a few inches above the crappie and is easy to cast. If the crappies are too deep, then go to a vertical jigging presentation.


To vertical jig, simply lower the jig to the depth the fish seem to be holding and then slowly jig it up and down. You can also cast the jig and retrieve it slowly.

Another popular method for fishing crappie jigs is to troll. To troll, simply attach the jig to your fishing line and then slowly pull your boat through the water. This method is a good way to cover a lot of water and find fish.

Here are some additional tips for fishing crappie jigs:

  • Use light line. Crappie are a light-biting fish, so you don’t want to use a heavy line that will spook them. A 4-6-pound test line in mono or 10-15-pound in a superline are good choices.
  • Use a sensitive rod. A sensitive rod will help you feel the bites, even when they are subtle.
  • Be patient and move around to find the fish. Crappie can be finicky fish, so you need to be patient when fishing for them. Don’t get discouraged if you don’t catch any fish right away. Keep at it and you will eventually start catching them.
