Columbus Crappie fishing

By Ray - Posted on 31 March 2014

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.

A method of keeping fish alive after they have been caught. A string or small nylon rope is threaded through the mouth and gills of a fish and is then tied off to the boat or dock allowing the fish to remain overboard in the water but preventing them from swimming away. With the advent of livewells and other more modern methods of keeping fish, stringers have become nearly obsolete, but can still be quite handy when fishing from the bank of a pond. The term 'stringer' is also used by anglers to indicate the size of their catch for the day (10-pound stringer = 10 pounds of fish).
