I know this is not the smartest question. But I am wanting to know if there is a size lure that will minimize dinks and maximize bigger crappie? I know you will not get as many big fish. But these dinks are killing me. Does bigger baits slow down smaller fish?

2.5-3.5 inch baits will definitely slow down the dinks but you will still catch some. You might also try fishing somewhere else. Sometimes the dinks are loaded on certain places like brush and the keepers are more plentiful in the timber. All of the dinks the year are coming from the high water we have had the last few years. There should be lots of keepers caught the next few years.

Have you tried changing color?

Sometimes if the smaller feesh are hitting I'll do a few color changed that help with getting bigger feesh...

I try different depths also....

But when those BIG'UNS don't want to cooperate I'll poke holes in those lilzzz.....

Here's something that works for me at times when catching dinks on a brush pile. Use you depth finder and move to the outside edges of the pile and like SK suggested, try different depths. Good luck to ya!

I will be fishing a Marina on Saturday morning. I love the Thump so much. That I will fight through the dinks. And Hope to get a few hogs. Not on a boat so I will not be able to move me location. I wonder if people are catching the bigger fish deeper. I will be in about 30 F.O.W.

You're going to get lots of suggestions, but here's mine...
If you're on a spot that just keeps putting out dinks, MOVE!
I don't believe there is any bait trick you can do that would eliminate dinks without lessoning the bites overall. My 2cents

I just keep sticking little ones until the big ones get interested. I guess that I just like to be entertained, but I will stay on top of 'em until they quit or I get tired on only catching dinks.
