Does anyone here use the tiny flukes? They are 3” baits and I find that later in the year once the shad have gotten larger I can trigger bigger fish to bite these as opposed to conventional jig bodies. I don’t get as many bites but the quality difference is noticeable.

I make my own that are essentially a 2.25" jointed fluke that I use year around and then go to a 3' tadpole when I want a larger profile.

I also have caught some monsters on 1 oz crankbaits so they aren't afraid to eat something big.

The Tiny Flukes work well for crappie in several applications. LOL Of course I also use them in salt water under the lights at night for specs and flounder.

I have caught fish using fluke style lures in the past, but prefer other designs such a cone tail grubs, finesse worms and shortened Slugos added to 1/16 oz. jig heads.



What limits some soft plastics is the softness factor: too firm and lure stiffness restricts lure action.

Never seen those before. Just checked em out and they do look like a better option because there are a ton of color options as opposed to only 5-6 with the tiny flukes.

I think most Crappie fisherman overlook how much crappie like that Blue color in soft plastics.

I use fluke type baits for white bass fishing. I agree that the Lunker City Fin-s brands are better because they offer more colors and are a 1/2 inch shorter. I never tried for crappie fishing but they are deadly when using a jig and bobber for white bass.

Haven't tried the tiny flukes, but....

Thermocline has the tadpole in 2.5 and 3". And the Super Fry in 3". Both styles come in lots of colors. Big profile baits work really great in fall, winter and spring. In spring, with off color or muddy water, get a dark colored, large profile bait and hold on.

Slab Bandits also come in larger sizes.
I've been using a Crazy Angler Crawl'r in Texas Thunder and dipping the head in blue spike it. Gives the head a blue/green color. A few 7" crappie have no trouble inhaling that size bait. And the bigger ones get mad at it and try to kill it.

The only time I upsize is in deeper water, when the smaller offerings won’t get a hit...
