Bass Pro Shops Marabou Crappie Jig
Best... jig... ever! The price, the quality, the results. Everything about these is the best. Every time we go out I'll try something else just for the heck of it and in the end after about an hour I end up grabbing one of these because nothing else performs anywhere near as well as these. I use these for lakes only, ice and canoe fishing, so I cannot attest to the use in moving water, but for my use... nothing comes close. Every time I go with another person I’ll have then with use this and I’ll try something off the wall that looks cool to me and has rave reviews. But in the end the other person ends up out performing me until I swap back to ole faithful (these jigs).
They are so inexpensive; you might as well buy some to try them out. From personal experimentation you need to use darker shades in the light/clear water and bright shades in the dark/murky water.

I love simplicity in fishing, Marabou jigs are in my opinion are very much like spoons, they are a catchall. I have caught crappie, freshwater drum, white and yellow bass, and also largemouth on these little jewels. I like to fish in spots most are afraid to cast, a bridge that I fish under on Lake Conre has beaten me many times. Everyone there fishes tube jigs or live minnows and I have caught fish on these lures when nobody else was catching anything I have beaten the blades off roadrunner jigs, and unraveled many marabous,.
These are the first marabou jigs I have used that did not come unraveled due to me casting them into the brdge pilings. I recomend getting the jig eye cleaner, it helps keep the paint on the jig longer since you don't scrape it off cleaning the eye with a pockety knife, or whatever your using, not to mention its much quicker and convenient.

Marabou & Flashabou Jigs
The marabou or the flashabou jigs are the best crappie jigs for the money on the market. I have caught several 2 1/2 to 3 lb crappie on them and they hold up very well.
I have encountered some unraveling, but for the most part this doesn't happen until I have caught 50 or more crappie with it. You can pay more if you want but my money lies with the marabou jig.

GO TO BAIT
I just bought this bait from BPS last week. I took my son fishing and the fish were biting slow. Then I put this bait on and caught fish on back to back cast. I finished my two hour fishing trip with 4 bass and 2 bluegill.This bait will catch you fish.I used the white with pink jig head and just let it sink and bounced it off the bottom.
