Chris Bullock: Hi! I am Chris Bullock expert Crappie Guide, here on beautiful Kerr Lake. Today I am going to talk to you about how prepare a jig. There is a time to use jigs and there is a time to use minnows. 85% of the time a jig will outfish minnow, but on blue bird days, high pressure days some of the tougher days a minnow will out fish as jig. A plastic body crappie jig has all on it when you hit it out the bag, so I'll snip the very tip off --. Then I insert my hook in here just before I push it all the way up, I put drop of super blue or soft bait blue and that secures and that's how to prepare a jig.
