The Bobby Garland Itty Bitty Slab Slayer is small but the action big. This Tiny little soft-plastic crappie bait imitates a variety of preferred crappie meals ranging from insects to minnows. The thin, flexible tail is cupped coming off the body and narrows to a point. Rigging it on a jighead either cup up or cup down totally changes the action of the lure, even as small as it is.
When rigged cup down, the fall is more vertical and delivers greater vibration to the tail's tip section because the cup is trapping water. This is a great rigging choice for when crappies are finicky and want minimal lure movement, or for when heavy cover warrants more angler control of the bait to minimize hang ups.
When rigged so that the tail's cup faces up, then the fall is more of a darting action because the convex surface of the tail makes the lure want to glide, much like how a boat hull works. This rigging action is ideal for bouncing the jig along breaklines and when fishing around more open-cover areas.
