I've received lots of requests for info on how I prepare cut bait for Crappie.
This should help.


Step 1, catch a drum, carp, bluegill or other trash fish.



Step 2: Scale the fish.




Step3: Filet the fish with the skin on. Cut into strips


Use on jig hooks like the photo. Stepping on the bait helps slow down the fall.
(not on carpet)





Keep bait in your cooler in bag. Freeze the excess for use later.

Be prepared to catch a lot of Bluegills at times. Bigger cut bait will usually catch bigger Crappie.

I'm betting a larger strip would work on the ditch pickles..sorta like the old Pork-O baits.

Probably would but they would tear up or sling off pretty easy.

I used a perch today. I don't think the fish cared. Fish is fish.

Strips vary from 1.5" to 3". Don't try to be neat. The more ragged the bait the better. That's why I stomp on it often.

Just a thought. If you can't or don't want to catch the bait you can buy Tilapia fillets with the skin on at the store. They should work fine.
