I've definately had the most luck...on black and chartreuse. Caught em off of Beaver, Dry Fork, Dardenelle, Conway, and Indianhead pretty consistently with the black and chartreuse tube and jig. Usually use a 1/16 ounce jig.

Bigger jigs, bigger fish...although sometimes you miss strikes on the smaller ones. It's just the price you pay.

Bigger is better , 1/8 oz leadhead with a 2'' umbrella tube.

Hey Fish, good question. As far as crappie jigs go, I definitely like using the ones with two or three colors. I believe that the contrasting colors allow the fish to more easily spot the bait. As far as color schemes go, I love black/chartreuse and black/firetail in good, clear, dark water. I will sometimes also go with red/chartreuse, especially after the wasps begin working in the summer. If the water is more than stained, I will switch to something like a blue/pearl, red/white or similar combination. One thing an old timer showed me a few years back was orange curlytails. He made me a believer in these baits. The crappie would tear them up for a week or two each fall around cypress trees and knees. Haven't tried them in a while, though.
