I know both can catch crappie but in general is one more effective than the other? Especially for beginners.

For a beginner I would let the minnow do the work.

I almost always take both, and jig while drwoning a minnow. once you see what they like best commit to the preffered bait.

For A BEGINNER, I would recommend the minnow under a bobber for you.Jigging can be very taxing on a beginner not knowing what you are expecting Especially with the sometimes subtle Crappie bite.With a bobber you have the advantage of visually seeing the bite rather than having to feel for it and sometimes if your equipment is subpar you wont feel the subtle bite. 2cents

If your family is starving use minnows.If you want to catch fish on something that doesn't look like a minnaw use a jig then its location -presentation-and skill and go home proud yourself you really fished.ha Darrell

I would also start with minners. Get that down then try ta go with an experienced jig fisherman. There some gooduns that hang out around here and they will be glad ta help ya.

Just don't start tying your own...Or you will be totally lost!
