Crappie (Black) Testimonials

John Stone – Overland Park, Kansas

Lure: Blades

Fish Caught: Bass, Smallmouth - Bass, Striped - Bass, White - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Crappie (Black) - Crappie (White) - Pike, Northern - Walleye

I finally wore my first Electric Fisherman out after nearly 15 years. I actually bought a new Electric Fisherman as well as a Piranha electric knife 2 yrs ago. I just bought the Cuda 8" blade and am anxious to give it a go this spring. Comfort, strong, durable, and even after limits of several species it does not over heat.

Joel – Tongue River Resviour , Wyoming

Lure: Teenie™ - 2"

Fish Caught: Crappie (Black) - Crappie (White) - Walleye

This Mister Twister 2" Teenie Grub in the neon chartreuse flake 101S has been the go to bait when put on a 1/8 oz. horse head with silver spinner, the crappies and walleye hit on this lure time after time, especially crappie in the smaller jig head size. It also works great for jigging this set up.

James Shickles – ,ponds And Streams, Wisconsin

Lure: Sassy Shad®

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Rock - Bass, Smallmouth - Bass, White - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Catfish, Channel - Crappie (Black) - Perch, Yellow - Pike, Northern - Trout, Brown - Trout, Rainbow - Walleye

I started using Mister Twister Sassy Shads about four years ago and it never fails to catch fish I've caught more fish with these than all other baits combined. I don't even take my big tackle box with me any more, all I take is a plastic bag with two and a half and three inch sassy shads pearl white and black, a couple extra 1/16 and 1/8 oz. black lead jig heads and I know I'll catch fish. This is in my opinion the best lure ever devised!!!

Chameng Lee – Broomfield, Colorado

Fish Caught: Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Crappie - Crappie (Black) - Crappie (White) - Perch, Yellow

Great lure to twitch under a bobber or on the bottom. Crappies and perch but have hit 3 lb bass on the too. Anything that sees it will basically hit it.

Zachary – Chippewa Flowage, Wisconsin

Lure: Meeny™ - 3"

When I go to Wisconsin every year I always fish up there. Using the Mister Twister 3" Meeny chartreuse color. Me and my Friends filled up our limit of 50 Crappie in 1 1/2 hours all which were nice sized. These are amazing baits and won't let you down

I use the Mister Twister 2" and 3" as well as the twin tail or double tail lures for a variety of fish on inland lakes and rivers in Grand Rapids and Detroit Michigan as well as lake Michigan on jumbo Yellow Perch. This is the most versatile lure in the world in my opinion. I have caught just about every freshwater fish that swims on this lure.

The new slogan for Mister Twister should be,and this primarily applies to the curly tail grubs.

Tyler – Lake Travis, Lago Vista TX, Texas

Douglas – Lake Milton/Mahoning River, Ohio

Lure: Lil' Bit™ - 1"

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Rock - Bass, Smallmouth - Bass, White - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Catfish, Channel - Crappie (Black) - Crappie (White) - Musky - Perch, Yellow - Sunfish (shellcracker) - Walleye

The Lil' Bit is bar none the best item I have ever used for fishing on any body of water in my entire life. Before I started using the Lil' Bit, I had MANY days in which I didn't even get a nibble. Since that day I started using them, I have not had a fishless moment. Indeed the Lil' Bit may be small in size, but my 31 1/2 inch walleye landed recently didn't seem to mind at all! On those miserable days in which a cold front is upon you, I PROMISE the Lil' Bit won't let you down. As a fisherman who has succeeded in finding an alternative to live bait, I hope you found my testimonial useful!

Douglas – Lake Milton/Mahoning River, Ohio

Lure: Lil' Bit™ - 1"

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Rock - Bass, Smallmouth - Bass, White - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Carp - Catfish, Blue - Catfish, Channel - Crappie (Black) - Crappie (White) - Musky - Perch, Yellow - Sunfish (shellcracker) - Walleye

Yet another amazing lure by Mister Twister!
Last year my dad and I decided we would try fishing for perch. After we got our equipment set, I set the minnow bucket in the water. Several minutes later I went to get a minnow and I noticed they were all gone! We were both upset thinking that because of a broken lid our fishing day would be ruined. Then I had an idea, I cut the tail off of the Exude grub and cast my line out to bottom fish. As unbelievable as it sounds, we almost limited out that day. To this day, the 1 inch Exude grub is the only lure I bother messing with. Why??? Obviously, I fish to catch 'em and the Exude grub easily allows me to do just that!

Kong Ly – St. Croix River, Minnesota

Lure: Twister® Tail - 4" & 6"

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Bass, White - Crappie (Black) - Crappie (White) - Pike, Northern - Walleye

I use this bait all the time I'm out fishing with other lures as well. White is my choice of color in 4" either rigged with red or chartruese jigs in 1/8oz to 3/8oz. I've even tried using the twister with float jigs when drop shotting for walleye along the bottom. I've just also started to add these to my bass spinner baits for more action. I do alot of early morning fishing for walleye and white bass using this lure with a red jig I can search for these fish fast knowing that they will bite it. At midday or dawn I mostly go with the chartruese jig for large and smallmouths along the rocky shorelines as well as scoring walleyes. For some reason the crappies perfer the 4inch curly tail instead of the 3inch when I pitch it beside docks. This is a great multi species lure.

Greg Peterson – Private Pond, Sylvester, Georgia

Lure: Keeper™ Worm Hooks

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, White - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Crappie (Black) - Crappie (White)

I used the 2/0 Keeper hook for the past 10years. The hook handled a 10 lb. bass like a small fish. There is no other big fish hook out there for me. Keep up the good work.

Leon Jackson – Northeast Ohio, Ohio

Lure: Steelhead and Trout Jig

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Rock - Carp - Crappie (Black) - Crappie (White) - Perch, White

This is my second entry for this jig. I must say that this jig is truly amazing. It catches fish. I purchased more of these jigs this off season in anticipation of this fishing season. I went down to the Lake Erie shoreline to fish. The rock bass were coming in to spawn and I knew from the past that they had been biting on night crawlers but on this day they were hitting on crawlers rather slow. I tied on one of the chartruese trout jigs and my catch rate more than doubled compared to everyone around me I ended up with 17 -20 rock bass within a 3 hour period. Dont ever stop making this jig. GREAT JOB!!!!!!!!!

Cory D. Mickelson – Pomme De Terre, Minnesota

Lure: Electric Fisherman™ Fillet Knife

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Crappie (Black) - Crappie (White) - Perch, Yellow - Pickerel - Pike, Northern - Walleye

It was the Minnesota Opener ,fishin was slow on our lake but managed to get one.My 16 yr. old duaghter asked if she could clean it, of course I said sure! We were ready to start but the Electric Fisherman just couldnt do it,I guess after 10 yrs or so it finally gave out, it had cleaned many many fish....we then had no choice but to use the ol' rapala,and to make a long story short my daughter informed me she was not cleaning fish for me again till I got a new Mister Twister Electric Fisherman, thanks for a great product!

Marc Morrone – Phillips Chain, Phillips, Wisconsin

Lure: Exude™ Curly Tail Grubs

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Rock - Bass, Smallmouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Crappie (Black) - Musky - Perch, Yellow - Pike, Northern - Walleye

Exude grubs flat out catch everything that swims!!!!

Swim them on a jig or fish on a jig under a float. It's like having live bait in your tackle box, and without the "mess" of other scented baits.

Mr. Leon Jackson – Northeast Ohio, Ohio

Lure: Steelhead and Trout Jig

Fish Caught: Bass, White - Crappie (Black) - Crappie (White)

Last year (2008) I purchased this jig from my local bait store not knowing or paying any attention to the fact that it is a trout jig and I just purchased more to add to my arsenal. I bought it due to it being chartruese with a worm attached to it to fish for crappie. Let me tell you this jig is not only deadly on crappie but the jig in white as well as the chartruese ones are equally as deadly on white bass. If you dont have one of these in your tackle box you are missing out on some great action.

Great job Mister Twister!!!!!!!!!!!!

Erich – Little St. Germain-Lake Nokomis-Wisconsin, Wisconsin

Lure: Teenie™ - 2"

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Rock - Bass, Smallmouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Crappie (Black) - Crappie (White) - Musky - Perch, Yellow - Pike, Northern - Sunfish (shellcracker) - Walleye

One of the best baits I've ver used. Without a minnow this bait will catch any sunfish or rock bass. With a minnow dipped at the end of the hook the number of fish that will bite your hook will greatly increase.

Mike Mulderick – Dorchester County Private Pond, Maryland, Maryland

Lure: G-Grub®

Fish Caught: Crappie (Black) - Crappie (White)

I have used this lure plenty of times and always had luck in many depths from shallows, to letting it sink to bottom. I bought the 2inch Mister Twister chartreuse G-Grub lure and when casting it into open water steady retrieve one fish nailed it. It was a good fight and the fish was around 2 pounds was a heavy fish. Recently I was fishing along an edge where this is a 2 foot bank that just drops straight down. I casted along the shoreline and let the lure sink and I started reeling. I felt the fish start biting so after it started taking out the line I set the hook. The fish put up a good fight at the beginning but I was sure it was a bass until I pulled it out of the water. It measured in at 16 inches. I cant wait to try these in the winter when crappie fishing starts.

Barton – Bemidji Lake, Minnesota

Lure: G-Grub®

Fish Caught: Crappie (Black) - Crappie (White) - Pike, Northern

I caught 3 crappie and 2 northern pike on a pumpkin/orange & black flake "crawfish" .Great Bait!!!!

Chris – Lake Joe Pool, Cedar Hill, Texas

Lure: Sassy Shad®

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, White - Crappie (Black) - Crappie (White)

This is an amazing product! I like to use with a 1/8 jig with a small bobber. I catch crappie and bass on almost every cast.

David Lind – Minong Flowage, Minong, Wisconsin

Lure: Micro Crawfish™

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Crappie (Black) - Perch, Yellow

My fishing buddy and I found a few packages of the Micro Craw in one of those bins at the end of the aisle. The price was right, so we each picked a couple up. I threaded one on a 1/16th oz. pink lead-head jig, and tossed it out under a slip bobber. The bait didn't have time to settle before I saw the flash of the fish. 30 seconds later I had a 3/4 lb bluegill in the boat. Second cast was a repeat. As was the 3rd. And 4th. By the time I had my 5th gill in the livewell, my buddy had a Micro Craw on his hook, and joined in the fun. After 3-4 more fish, all the legs and claws were chewed off of my bait, so I threaded on another. We limited out, went home to clean fish and have a fish fry, but not before we stopped back at the store and cleaned them out of every last package of Micro Crawfish we could find. I never used live bait a single time last year.

Gike Grand – Detroit, Michigan

Lure: Exude™ Trout Worm

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Crappie (Black)

Long line trolling the bright yellow Trout Worm on a 1/16oz. jighead is a great way to locate schooling crappies on warm summer evenings. A 7-foot light to medium light action rod with a long cast spinning reel is good for both trolling and for casting at fish once they are located. Spool up with thin diameter braided line and a 2-3ft. leader of 2lb. fluorocarbon line. Also expect jumbo 'gills and largemouth bass.

David Jeon – Princeton, New Jersey

Lure: Nymph

Fish Caught: Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Crappie (Black)

This is a great lure for slab crappie and monster bluegill. The most effective colors are chartreuse flake, and brown/yellow. Rig it on a 1/16 oz. jig head and vertical jig over structure, and hang on! The three tails wave up and down like tube, creating lots of action!

Vince Green – Washington

Lure: Jig Spinners

Fish Caught: Bass, Smallmouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Crappie (Black) - Perch, Yellow

I have used Mister Twister spinner forms for at least past 25 years with a black jig that has a rubber grub Twister Tail.
I've done great on yellow perch, bluegill, crappie, smallmouths etc., it has been the one lure that i can count on when fishing new water. Wish I still had some as I lost my last one this spring. I was checking on internet to see if I could find some and found this site. So at least I know you still make them. Anyway, its been a great lure for me.
