Favorite colors for crappie jigs change some from year to year. Maybe it’s water color. Maybe the fish get use to seeing the same color over and over. It’s possible we do well with other colors and have quit using others.
One I see coming full circle is yellow-white. 30 years ago it was the must have, go to color for a crappie. All the new colors over the years, especially chartreuse and its combinations, put white-yellow toward the bottom of the box. Not now. During the past few years, yellow-white jigs have snuck into a few savvy anglers’ tackleboxes. Since yellow is different than chartreuse, now is a good time to give crappie that little something different they don’t see every day…yellow-white. -TH
