Crappie, bass and bluegill love to inhale our Tournament Series® Squirmin'® Squirts. The Squirts' soft, hollow body and fine, undulating tentacles dart through the water like a real minnow. Plus, they are salt-impregnated for maximum attraction and to ensure the fish holds the bite long enough for a solid hookset.
We are using the squirt in black and white on a horsehead jig for river crappie at night.
they work great with berkley crappie nibbles inside the body of the squirt.
we also catch shovelhead cats, and white bass, and sheep head while fishing for crappie at night, and also some nice sauger.
overall a fine little bait. The crappie nibbles really improve the bite when we started using them.

I've used these tubes to catch a wide variety of fish. Bass Pro has the largest selection of types, sizes and color combinations. I cast one recently and caught a 32" carp to my amazement ! I've caught crappie, bluegill, bass and walleye on these in the spring. I always rig them double, about a foot apart. As for color? Every time I think one color works best, I find one that works even better. (I think I have almost all the colors they offer.)

This lure is insane. You can catch crappie bass shad bluegill or anything else. If i had to pick 1 lure it would be this because it can catch anything anytime anywhere no matter what! And its very easy! My favorite color is black/chartreuse. This lure should be in every anglers tackle box!

you're fishing it too fast. slow it down and maybe switch to a roundhead jig or a horsehead jig. the jig u are using is more for vertical or strait down presentation. Let it go to the bottom then use a steady retrieve very slowly.
I use an 1/8 oz jig head that is green an yellow with black eye and the jig head has a little tang on it that also helps hold the rubber body on the jig and fish with a slip bobber or just cast and let sink with a slow retrieve.
Hi Mike i am actually a fan of Black/Chart my self, for small delicate plastics like this i love drop shotting, grab you some http://www.basspro.com/Bass-Pro-Shops-XPS-Drop-Weights/product/20871/-699270
tie the weight to the end of your main line and depending on the depth you're fishing in allow for a 6"-18" leader, longer leader for deep water. At your desired length tie a #1 split ring with a size 10 bait holder hook i use these http://www.basspro.com/Gamakatsu-Bait-Holder-Hook/product/10217283/-1734504
then simply texas rig the squirt and make it weedless by sticking the hook point in one tentacle, drop it and shake it or twitch it with a slow retrieve.
you slide the tube jig head up through the "bottom" (open end) of the skirt. It can be a little tricky, wet the jib head first (don't put a lead jig in your mouth though). start at a 90 degree angle to the opening and put the line-hole in first the bring it down level and cram it in. don't pull on the "tentacles" they'll tear...you will figure it out. Mine spin also, but only on a fast retrieve. Slow it down, jig erratic popping motions on a slow retrieve and hold on!
Use a "Y" type leader, 6 ft long with 1/32 round jig heads. This is tied to a swivel with one leg about 4 ft long and the other leg about 2 ft long. Pitch or throw the lure out and let i slowly settle to the bottom. Crappie will usually even hit it on the fall. Then slowly retrieve with upward jerking motion. Can tip the hook with niblets. Besure and slightly open the hooks before baiting as this will aid the hookset.
Small tubes naturally have an eratic action, but the best way to rig them is to get a 1/32 oz jighead or a 1/16 oz jighead and push the point of the hook through the nose of the bait. Then put it on some light line and cast it out as far as you can. Next slowly reel it back adding a small jerking motion as you reel.
