Old School Crappie Fishing Family Secrets

Crappie Minnow Setups

Crappies love live bait and they hunt for schools of minnows everyday for a food source. The following minnow rig is designed to imitate a small school of minnows that is intended for a hungry crappie in waiting. If fished properly this small group of minnows can be amazingly successful, and a very productive way of filling your fish basket.

You must get a good rod and reel combo the reel being a small spin cast Variety that accepts 4 to 6lb dia. Test line. The rod needs to be over 8ft long preferably 10ft plus. I personally use a fly rod with a small spin cast reel set up with 10lb test fire line. The fire line is a braided line that has the strength of 10lb test but only the dia. of 4lb test line.

Steps To Success How to Simulate A Small School Of “Crappie Minnows”

Step#1 Get yourself (3) three small three way swivels that work for crappie fishing.

Step#2 Get yourself some 3 small spinner blades 6 beads. They make excellent crappie minnow baits.

Step#3 Get yourself 1 egg, or bass sinkers, no more then a 1/4oz size.

Step#4 Get yourself some 10lb test fire line, this will have the dia. Of 4lb test, now load your spin cast reel.

Step#5 Get yourself 3 no. 1,1/0,2/0 Aberdeen gold crappie hooks and tie them to 3 pieces of fire line cut to 16” lengths using a Palomar knot. The length you want to end up at is 12 inches, so you need to trim the end opposite the hook.

Step#6 Now you are going to cut (3) pieces of fire line each 8” inches long, they will connect between the three way swivels.

Step#7 Release enough fire line out of your rod and reel combo and run it through the eyelets on your rod. Make sure you have enough line extending past the eyelets to work comfortably when you are tying on your crappie fishing rig tackle.

Step#8 Now orient your first three way swivel so when you tie the top eyelet to your fire line there is a second eyelet approximate 90degs located on the left hand side.

Step#9 Pick up one of the 12” leaders you made in step 5 and slide one bead up the line. Next slide one of the spinner blades up the line behind the first bead. Next, Slide another bead up the line behind the spinner blade. Now, tie the end of the leader without the hook to the free eyelet on the 3 way swivel that is on the left side 90degrees from the top.

Step#10 Tie one end of the 8” pieces of fire line you cut in step 6 to the bottom eyelet of the first 3 way swivel, then tie the other end of the line two your second 3 way swivel. Make sure the open eyelet that is 90degrees from the top on the second 3 way swivel is located on the right hand side. After your tying is done, you want to end up with approximately 6” of space between the first and second eyelet.

Step#11 Pick up one of the 12” leaders you made in step 5 and slide one bead up the line. Next slide one of the spinner blades up the line behind the first bead. Next, Slide another bead up the line behind the spinner blade. Now, tie the end of the leader without the Aberdeen gold crappie hook to the free eyelet on the second 3 way swivel that is on the right side 90degrees from the top.

Step#12 Now pick up one of your 8” connecting pieces of fire line and tie one end to last remaining open eyelet of the second three way swivel , then tie the other end to the top eyelet of the third three way swivel, but make sure the open eyelet 90degs from the top is on the right hand side before you tie. When you have completed the tying process you should have approximately 6 inches between the two eyelets.

Step#13 Pick up the last 12” leader you made in step 5 and slide one bead up the line. Next slide one of the spinner blades up the line behind the first bead. Next, Slide another bead up the line behind the spinner blade. Now, tie the end of the leader without the hook to the free eyelet on the third 3 way swivel that is on the right side 90degrees from the top.

Step#14 Now pick up the last 8” connecting pieces of fire line and tie one end to last remaining open eyelet of the Third three way swivel , and the other end to the 1/4oz bass sinker.
