Columbus Crappie fishing

I caught these 2 slabs a 1.87 and a 1.85 along with a few more on a short trip out this weekend. I have been catching these crappiei on the jig I attached a picture of from Showdown tackle. I have been using these jigs almost exclusively this year and here is what I have found. They are very durable I must have caught 20 fish with one before I finally lost it. The hooks are sized just right and they will bend enough to let you pull free of a hang and reshape without breaking. The color combinations are almost endless with a full selection of weights. I have been using the 1/32 the past couple of trips because the crappie seemed to want the bait swimming and the 1/32 gives a nice slow fall.
In short I am very happy with the Showdown Tackle jigs and would highly recommend them.

Angling for Crappie is popular throughout much of North America. Methods vary, but among the most popular is called 'Spider Rigging', a method characterized by a fisherman in a boat with many long fishing rods pointing away from the angler at various angles like spokes from a wheel. Anglers who employ the Spider Rigging method may choose from among many popular baits. Some of the most popular are plastic jigs with lead jig heads, crank baits or live minnows. Many anglers also chum or dump live bait into the water to attract the fish hoping the fish will bite their bait. Crappie are also regularly targeted and caught during the spawning period by fly fishermen, and can be taken from frozen ponds and lakes in winter by ice fishing.
