Crappie and Crank Baits
Small crappiei will bite large crank baits. You know it still kind of amazes me how crappie will bite crank baits when at the same time it seems I must downsize to a 1/64th jig to get them to bite. Crank bait size has been a popular topic lately. Smaller crank bait or larger crank bait? Will larger crank baits like the DD-22 and Bandit 700 series catch larger fish. Well I say maybe on occasion but not reliably and not because of the size of the bait. Maybe the depth the larger baits run will get the bait down to larger fish at times..
Overall I suspect the crank bait causes a reaction strike based on movement and color with no bait size preference.
Just my thoughts and a good reason for me not to spend a ton of money widening already large crank bait selection.
Here is Charles Kelly with a crappie that didn't care how big the bait was.
