The Crappie Magnet is slightly larger than the Trout Magnet at 1 1/2 inches in length, allowing you to fish in deeper water. Crappie prefer the look of a straight Crappie Magnet because it looks like their food source. The specially designed split-tail grub allows for a perfectly balanced lure. The most effective way to use this lure is dead-stick the Crappie Magnet at the proper depth. It will outfish other jigs using this method.
