For the last 3 days I have been tearing up the Crappie on the little (1.25") Slab Bandit at the boat slip. Texas toast or any other color works. Caught 44 in 1.5 hours early today. Had 9 keepers. All caught at "The Office".
I use a 1/8 oz head with a #8 hook. Rarely get hung and it will hold the fish.
Don't believe me ask Fishbonz or Mike.
