Re: Crappie jigs/ flies do you use them or do you prefer minners?
I use Maribou Roadrunners for small bass. But never had much luck with regular jigs unless they had a piece of a plastic worm threaded onto the hook.
I like natural baits for fish other than bass and use bugs for bluegills, cut bait for catfish and mainly minners fer crappie.
Slabs and spoons, or anything shiny with a hook on it, work great for schooling sand bass that are chasing shad on the surface.
