On another crappiei forum, I've been in a debate that mimicking a specific forage is not necessary when it comes to catching any fish, including crappie. What is the consensus of pro anglers?

Mostly bull. At least in the mostly muddy waters I fish in. Color and size is very important and I have yet to see any natural bait that is chartreuse or orange, or electric chicken or Popsicle just saying..

Pomoxis is a genus of freshwater fish in the sunfish family (family Centrarchidae) of order Perciformes. The type species is P. annularis, the white crappiei. The common name crappie (pronounced /ˈkræpiː/), refers to either of the Pomoxis species, both of which are extremely popular game fish.
