Title: crappie spinner ideas

Curl tails have been a favorite of mine for years - especially for bass and pan fish.

Short worms are also good like these Slider and Flip Tail worms:

 I always have a few of that type of spinner in my panfish box. Hard to beat them. I like the Crappie Spinner that has been posted in the other thread, but probably have caught more on these safety pin types.

I remember one winter, my fishing buddy & I were looking for some panfish, and on my first cast, a Carp hammering that little lure. I had put a 2" chartreuse curltail grub on it, similar to those you're showing. Of course I figured it was a bass, but was surprised that a Carp had hit it.

Didn't really matter, on ultralight gear they're all fun to catch.  ;D

I always have a couple safety pin spinners along for times when crappies are aggressively chasing baits.

Been making my own since I was in High School   [ Invalid Attachment ]   The bottom one is a redesign of the dual Slab Daddy dual jig but with this I can change jigs or use live bait with plain hooks
