Default Re: crappie and shellcracker.....two of my favorite

One of the rare times that I use a floating strike indicator is in a situation like that.
What you want to do is tie up some marabou jig flies on the smallest jig head you can find. Hook size 8, 1/64oz, I think is right. You're going to need a bunch of different colors
Fish those under an good sized indicator and not too deep
Cast out.... let it sit.... give it a jiggle....let it sit.
Retrieve it closer.... do it again
