Saturday started out looking grim. The crappie were not in their usual hangouts, they were on the bottom and the bite was LIGHT. long story short I fished hard all day and was about to end with 11 keepers. I was very happy with the 11 I had considering how the day started. On my way out I tried one more spot and caught 14 more keepers! I weeded through multiple 9's and 9.5's for every fish on the stringer and the last 2 seemed like even more, especially as I watched the sun begin to set and all I could hook up with unders. What a great day on the water, it was intense.

With all this said I don't think I would have ended with anything if I hadn't tipped the jig with a crappie nibble. I usually never use them, but had picked up some before coming out "just in case". It seemed like every cast without a nibble would come up empty, but a nibble on the jig would catch a fish.

Lesson learned, I am always gonna keep some crappie bites on me just in case.

I believe in them. Have fished with them while my buddy in the boat wouldn't use them. I caught about 5 to his 1. After a couple of hours, he gave in and started using them. Pretty even after that. I use them whenever I crappie fish, color does not seem to matter.

I have never used them and still catch crappie. I have seen people use them and catch fish though.

if the fish are very active it does not matter. But if the bite is slow or very light. I put that Crappie crack on and it changes things most of the time. It is now like American Express. never leave home without it.

Guy and I started using this instead of the nibbles. They are a rubber form and stay on much better and last longer. Most times after catching a fish it's still on the hook ready for the next drop. Plus if you drop some in you boat and step on them you can simply reach down pick them up and place them back in the container. No more squished nibbles in my carpet.

Oh and don't tell Ron Duran "Blue Nitro" that they catch fish too....

Those maggots work great also.

They help in times the bite is slow but most of the time they are not needed.

There is a place I like to whitebass fish where sometimes you have to tip a jig with a piece of crawfish. I'm wondering if a crappie bite would do the same thing.
