Caught over 100 Crappies! Whether you like to use a float or not, it's actually very deadly during early spring for crappies when they are on the shallows. I use a small 1/16 jig head on 4lb test line and a small Trout Magnet EZ float since I can adjust the line and keep the lure in the strike zone easier. I usually have the lure slightly above the middle of the water column. for instance, if the water is 4 ft deep, i'll do 1.5 to 1.75 ft. Crappies look upwards!
Enjoy the video, (no worries, i didn't put in all 100 crappie clips)
