what kind of minnows are the crappies going after up there? Is it a fathead cuz them crappies are so big, or just a regular crappie minnow? Is anyone having any luck with just the minnow head on a jiggin spoon? and for the tip ups, sucker or shinner? what is the best way to go with the minnows for URL, any help would be great. staying in cookies ice castle the 19th/20th, and I am really excited. taking my 2 boys for there first ever trip to URL.

crappie minnows are small fatheads. We have had better luck with the smaller ones on the three trips up there this year but use the head of the bigger ones to tip a rattlin spoon to lure them in and then catch them on a dead stick.
