Hooking them thru the tail. You want that extra action from your minnow which will attract more fish.

Too other fish, he is hurt and struggling to get away with back and forth motions. This seems easy prey for the prey fish.

Hooking thru the lip, eyes are a no no. Reason being that fish attact minnows head on.

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, crankbaits 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.
