Nature Notes Outdoor notes on fishing, hunting and bird watching.
Sometimes, crappie turn finicky and only taste jigs. The angler may never even know that a strike occurred. When that happens, add a little incentive. Add a crappie nibble, a tiny bit of pellet bait, to the jig hook. These look like miniature marshmallows and come in various colors. They dissolve slowly in the water, giving off scent and flavor.
