That a new one on me... a crappie decoy that is. They do use decoys in the sport of spearing sturgeon thru the ice in some places north. I don't think a crappie decoy tho. Most look like suckers an being sturgeon are curious fish they will investigate. Just think cutting a hole in the ice the size of your front door an standing hour after hour waiting for a fish of legal size to swim close enough to throw a large gig at.

I've got a cousin that uses a decoy up in Minnesota when he spear fishes for Northern Pike. He suspends it just under the surface and waits inside his ice-house. It sounds like alot of fun. The decoy just looks like a large minnow that is painted red and white.
