Default Best lure/tactic for monster...

crapppie? I'm think about going after some trophy crappies this afternoon...............I'm used to fishing with a slip bobber and a small 1" to 1 1/2" crappie tubes for any old panfish..............but what is the best lure to land a monster? Maybe I should just use my bass spinnerbaits......I've caught crappie accidentally on those before.

Can't go wrong with a nice fat minnow under a slip float

Yeah..........but I'm not going to have the time to get minnows and I'd like to "run and gun" the shoreline with lures.

They seem to love the gulp alive minnows. They inhale the 3" version.

You're on the right track it just takes patience, and alot of luck. 3" fathead Minnows would be your best bet.

If looking for big crappie approach it like bass fishing work cover with crankbaits... downsize your cranks a tad. Monster crappie do not often school up with other crappies they act more like bass.

I have caught the bulk of my bigger crappies on crankbaits when fishing for bass.

Small floating rapalas and tube jigs have been my best.
