small-grubsSmall curly tail grubs in the 1″ to 3″ range work well for crappie.  A simple jighead is the most common way to rig a curly tail grub for crappie, however, a drop shot rig can also be effective.  You can swim the curly tail grubs, hop them along the bottom or vertical jig with them.  Most crappie anglers will swim a jig and curly tail grub with a slow and steady retrieve.  Using the countdown method, they can cover a variety of depths to find where the active crappie are feeding.  Swimming a curly tail grub is also a very effective way to cover more water quickly in search for crappie in the shallows during the spring spawn.
