Crappie spinner…..sweet little rig.

Picked up a crappie spinner mold off of eBay for $25 shipped. Makes some sweet crappie spinners. What do you guys use for skirts on it? Tried a tube jig looked ok….

I fished crappie sized spinners years ago but haven't had one on a line in maybe 10 years. I just don't care for them. Friends tinker with them and they'll add all sorts of stuff to the heads for tail dressing but I think twister tails are used more than anything with the tube you've shown second in line. Like anything crappie I don't think there's a wrong add on with the spinners.

I will say that I have seen some really decent fish taken on the spinners including an 8 pound walleye a buddy nailed fishing rip rap on the Mississippi River one day. They work but I just never found favor with them in spite of the fact that I still have several in packages from years past.

The ones I make, I just use bucktail of various colors.  We toss them as micro spinnerbaits for bass.  Never have caught a crappie on one but the bass like them at times.

I have that mold as well but don't use the hooks they suggest. I pour mine with Gamakatsu B10S stinger hooks in size 1-4. They are super sharp and I love sharp hooks. If I'm using plastics I prefer 2-3" Keitech baits but usually go with my hand tied spinnerbaits.
