Bobby Garland Baby Shad
go-to bait bar-none!!!
I've crappie fished here in Texas most of the year and I've gotta tell ya fellas these little things work like the dickens. I christmas tree mine on with 1/32 metallic round jigheads and usually run patriot on top blue thunder in the middle and bleeding shad on the bottom. half of the time my jigs would never make it to the bottom. Give em a try and you'll probably be just as shocked as I was when i first threw em. Beware tho because theyll also attract big bass which never faired very well on my 4-6lb ultralight tackle.

Dynamite drop shot rig bait........
I use this bait for drop shot riggin' for bass. I use these small baits whenever the bass are finicky and I'm looking to throw something different than anyone else. I can almost promise you noone else on the lake fishing for bass will be using this bait!
I reverse nose hook the bait on a #1 Gammy drop shot/finesse hook. I've caught fish over 3 lbs. on this little bait and it will even produce the occassional crappie when fishing near brushpiles.
The baits are durable and well priced too!

Cheers to the Electric Chickens
I was introduced to the Bobby Garland soft bait by a friend in Peoria, Il. He thought that the Electric Chicken pattern would work well in Lake Mission Viejo, CA; he had no idea. I fish at least 4 days a week. On one outing I used the Bobby Garland bait and caught a Large Mouth Bass, a Crappie and a Rainbow Trout. How often do you catch 3 different types of fish on the same bait? The Baby Shad works so well that I can leave the Lid on my Power Bait.
Thanks for all the Limits; Bobby!

shoud not leave home without them
These will become a staple in every Crappie Fisherpersons tackle box.Cheap,Very durable and by golly they catch fish!!!I like to tandem rig these on a 1/16 oz ball head jigon the bottom with a 1/32 oz marabou jig on the top.Slow movement seems to attract more strikes but i have had the bait sitting doing nothing and had Crappie hit it hard.Best color for me has been Blue Thunder but have had good success with the Key Lime pie and electric chicken also
