I'm new to the site, and I'm interested in some folks' favorite flies for crappies. Is there a forum on this bulletin board where I can share and learn some patterns for crappie? I've never really pursued them in earnest, but this next Spring I think I would like to target them.

one of my all time favorites, and probably best producer, flies for crappies is Al Campbell's Crappie Candy. Here's a link to his pattern. We don't have any trout streams in my area so I fish mainly panfish and bass.

I've had good success with #6 Clouser Deep Minnows in chart/white, chart/yellow, and a real killer has been black over purple. Don't know why, it just worked good.

Also, a cone-head woolly bugger, gold cone, chartreuse tail, yellow body, chartreuse hackle. The waters I've caught them from have been fairly "stained" or murky. If you're lucky enough to have clear water, other colors might do better for you.
Life is hard. It's even harder if you're me.

Welocme Joe, at the top of each page you will find a search icon. Click it and enter Crappie and it will take you to 3 pages where Crappie was discussed. You should be able to see some fly ideas to start with until others add to this post :)

Joe,

Here is my favorite Crappie fly. The Grundsow Nymph. Simple to tie, and it does the trick.



The Grundsow Nymph originated while tying Chuck Caddis patterns. I was saving the under-fur, and the naturally translucent properties of it intrigued me. So I tied up a small pattern to try as a dropper fly on the Nisqually river. The fish killed it. And likewise everywhere else I fished it. Many times, this simple pattern has saved my day on the water both fished as a dropper, and bounced along the bottom on its own. This pattern is also an absolute must have as a dropper-fly on stillwater behind your favorite popper.


Recipe

Hook: Mustad 94840 #12-#16
Thread: Black Uni-thread 6/0
Bead: Gold Tungsten
Abdomen: Groundhog under-fur, spun in a waxed dubbing loop
Tail: Black Marabou tips
See you on the water!

I second what NJT said 100%. I use a fly very similar, the same way, in a few slight color variations. Though I haven't tried bouncing it along the bottom... good didea.

Crappie Candy and Marabou Miss are two flies that come to mind. Check out www.warmwaterflytyer.com/patterns.asp
Now just to get my flies to do what my mind imagines...

NJTroutbum was the one who posted the Grundsow Nymph. I found a pic on the net. The recipe is in his previous post.
