Not sure I'd use minnows in a pond.

I have heard that they can reproduce pretty efficiently and overrun the pond. I don't know if it's true or not but I've been told by several people over the years not to use them in a pond. I just don't do it, haven't since I was a kid.

Only minnows that might take over a pond would be wild caught Shad. If you bought "Toughies" at a store they wouldn't hurt a pond in any way even if they did start raising in it. Toughies are Fat Head Minnows and they don't get very large. Shiners get so big that they get un-eatable.

If you guys don't know this technique for crappie it's worth trying, especially pre and during the spawn. A 1/16 ounce jig head with a BG Baby Shad on it with the next to smallest sized "peg" styrofoam float that Wally World sells. Gotta use a 1/16 ounce head. That pulls the float about 2/3 of the way under. I'd say 1/2 of crappie hits are from below, coming up. When you see that float raise up in the water, set the hook. I use to wait for a float to go under. Now if I see it move, in any way, I set the hook.

The float I'm talking about is usually the smallest one Wally World has, but last spring I did find some that were smaller. The smallest ones slowly sink out of sight. If you get the next size bigger than the correct ones, this method doesn't work. They are orange and white.

It's 26 acres and we put a truck load of shad in it earlier this spring. I don't think a few buckets of minnows are going to overrun it. I don't really even know if there are crappie in it or not, was just trying to figure out the best method to fish it to find out.

Do you hook em like a Texas rigged worm to rig them weedless?


Yes Fur exactly like that!

80% of the time I tie 2, 1/32 oz. jig heads with #2 hooks on 4 lb. Crappie Pro Yellow line about 18-24" apart, sometimes 2 different colors, sometimes the same. Cast them out and count down until they reach just above the depth that you are showing them on the graph. Watch your line closely for any unnatural movement. Reel slowly, no, scratch that. Reel s-l-o-o-w-w-l-l-y-y. As mentioned above, a little twitch or even a hesitation will often trigger strikes when it's slow. I rig the same way to long line. I like the Slab Slayers and the Baby Shad equally well.

My colors are typically
Monkey Milk
Cajun Cricket
Hologram Ghost
Blue Ice
Electric Chicken
Chartreuse Black Pepper
And I'm not crazy about the name of it but Double Silver Rainbow has put a lot of Crappie in the boat.





I’m going to try this.
