Minnows are probably the best live bait for catching crappie.  Minnows in the 3 to 4 inch range will work well and you can go a little bigger if you are fishing on lakes that have good populations of bigger crappie in the 12 to 15 inch range.  Fathead minnows and smaller shiner minnows will catch plenty of crappie.  Take a look below to see some of the minnows that anglers use for crappie fishing.
