I am not sure what they are called but them come in a little clear tube. I have caught tons of crappie on them.

I've taken to tying up my own feather jigs. I like green or olive colored jig heads and olive colored feathers and chenille seem to work best, but I also tie up black, purple, white, chartreuse and some mixes of those as well. It doesn't hurt to tip the jig with power grubs or a small piece of worm.

Seems like some days (or even some times of the day) they're picky and want a certain color, but when they're biting I seem to do best with olive (the color matches the weeds and the minnows that hide in the weeds) and it seems to catch most of my larger slabs.
What's so funny 'bout peace love and understanding?

this may sound wierd but i did this by accident. put a shiner hooked through the mouth on the jig. it looks goofy but works when nothing else will.
those suckers cant resist!

chartreuse & white doubled One over the other and if they are not biting the minnow on the jig is great too.

down here 14 maybe 15 in fish are pretty common. they're big but we catch a few of them each time. might catch a 16 once a year. (and this area is known for its big crappie) but 18.5 is an extremely huge fish.
i just put 2 pieces of paper end to end and folded 3 in of one under. that is one super crappie. (they'll probably mount that for ya.) but we catch bass like that all day.

No, but we don't keep any of the fish we catch, we are on a catch and release program. I will post some pics this summer when we start catching them pretty good.

I dont specificly fish for crappie much but I do catch a lot of them on yo'yo's with earth worms. 14-16 1-3lb crappie isn't all that uncommon around here. 3lb much less common that 1.5-2lb though, but it happens often. Guy I duck hunt with crappie ishes a lot, hes from IL. He says the first crappie he caught down here he thought was a "once in a lifetime" 2lb fish. but he claims he caught 19 others over 1.5lbs
