They look nice. I prefer some chenille around the body to add bulk and make it taper to the tail instead of just having a big headed minnow. That being said, the crappie will surely eat those. Thank you for posting your work.

Not sure what your painting them with that is a flat color, but some Clear Vinyl with take care of that and make the finish look deeper. Also I am one that uses Red Thread on any thread neck jig I tie.
Still the tie itself looks fine and should work just like it is suppose to!
