Upsizing lures is a proven way to trigger the largest fish in the school to fire on your lure. This also applies to smaller gamefish species like panfish, and crappie in particular. Lipless crankbaits like the Rapala Ultra Light Rippin Rap and the Slab Rap have been accounting for huge numbers of walleye, bass, perch and now panfish on ice, thanks to the smaller bite-sized versions. Dave Lefebre demonstrates his prowess on ice, taking what has traditionally been a bass category, and spanking some beauty slab crappie under three feet of ice. Give this technique a try near you!
