Designed to put more slabs in the boat, Johnson™ Crappie Buster baits come in six unique offerings suited for catching
crappie across the country in the variety of waters these fish call home.


Crappie Buster Tubes
Featuring shorter heads and longer, super-thin tentacles, Johnson Crappie Buster Tubes offer
20 percent more swim action. The hollow bodies are ideal for pairing with Johnson’s Crappie
Buster Shad Scales for added attraction. Available in 24 color combinations, Crappie Buster
Tubes have an MSRP of $1.99 for a package of twelve.


Crappie Buster Shad Tubes

Crappie Buster Shad Tubes emulate shad, top prey crappie target. The solid construction of
the head on a Johnson Crappie Buster Shad Tube stays firmly in place on a jighead or tube
jig while the hollow body can easily be combined with Shad Scales for increased attraction.
Thin tentacles give the soft bait a lifelike swimming action and appearance in the water;
12 different color combinations let anglers match the hatch. Shad Tubes have an MSRP of
$1.99 for a package of eight.


Crappie Buster Shad Scales
Mimicking a feeding frenzy is made easier with Crappie Buster Shad Scales, a shad-flavored,
gel attractant perfect for filling hollow tube baits. These scented, reflective micro scales mimic
descaling prey and draw the attention of shad predators. Each container holds enough for 150
to 200 applications that will stay on/in a tube for 15 to 30 minutes. Available in eight colors,
Shad Scales have an MSRP of $3.99.


Crappie Buster Shad Tails
Shad Tails combine a shad shape with a single straight, finesse-style tail that is ideal for
attracting crappie. Shad Tails are the only hollow straight tail plastic on the market today.
The thin, straight tail quivers with the slightest rod tip movement and the solid head design
allows bait to stay firmly on the jig. Available in 12 crappie-busting colors, Shad Tails have
an MSRP of $1.99 and come in packages of twelve.


Crappie Buster Shad Crank
These pint-sized cranks can be fished in any conditions. Each shad-shaped imitator comes
in 2 1/8-inch and 2.5-inch sizes. Shad Cranks feature red hooks, high pitched rattles and 10
crappie-attracting colors. Shad Crank models run from 6 to 8 feet (2 1/8-inch models) and
10 to 12 feet deep (2.5-inch models). The Shad Crank has an MSRP of $3.99.

 Crappie Buster Spin’ R Grubs
With an Indiana blade attached to a ball bearing swivel, the Spin’ R Grub comes in 1/32-, 1/16-, and 1/8-ounce sizes. The keeled head of the Spin’ R Grub allows the Johnson Beetle Grubs to swim at any retrieval speed. Available in eight colors, the Spin R’ Grub has an MSRP of $1.99.
