Chigger Fry

Chigger Fry

(12 customer reviews)


We have 41 colors to choose from to entice the most finicky fish.

The most popular and deadly plastic we’ve developed is the Panfish Plastic Chigger Fry. With four tiny legs, a segmented body, and an alluring pintail that never stops moving, this is the best bait for panfish on the market. The Panfish Plastics Chigger Fry is infused with a proprietary anise scent which makes it the best bait for crappies, bluegills, and perch. The Chigger Fry measures 1 inch in length and works best on a #10 size hook although you can use up to a size 8 hook.

It is available in 36 colors sure to replicate microorganisms within the underwater ecosystems. The Panfish Plastics Chigger Fry can be fished horizontally or vertically, but horizontal is recommended. This allows the tail to be naturally buoyant in the water allowing it to move freely, even when deadsticking.

Soft but strong plastics guarantee you’ll spend more time fishing and less time re-batiing.

  • 1 inch in length
  • Works great on #8 & #10 hooks
  • Proprietary Anise Scent
  • Available in 41+ colors
  • Offered in 10 or 50 packs

    I have been using your plastics religiously now the last few ice seasons! Wow is all I can say. No other plastic even matters.

  • Joshua Matoga

    Best plastic I’ve ever used an only one I’ve used this winter!

  • Tyler Merritt

    After trying them with Kenders tungsten jigs, I have to say that these have quickly become a go to for me. The panfish in the local ponds go after them the minute they hit the water, and they easily outfish the other plastics I’ve used in the past. They’re definitely going to be a staple in my tackle box in the future.

    Panfish Plastics are hands down the best plastics on the market. I use the Chigger fry exclusively There is no need for live bait. My go to colors are white and chili red. I will be trying some other colors and will update it the results here

    Good morning on the ice. Crappies were picky. But we put a few topside. Justin Hach and I each kept a few for the pan and released some for another day. Widow Maker Lures tungsten jigs Panfish Plastics chigger fry was the ticket combo today.

  • Todd Murray

    Panfish Plastics Have some really nice micro baits .These will work well I think in my Local Catch and Release Streams. Move Over Trout Magnet:)

    Camera was showing schools of nice bluegill cruising through. They would barely pause to sniff our waxies. Meanwhile, 25 feet away, Ole and Sven are pulling gills out of the ice as fast as they could get the line back down. We used old-school tactics to find out what they were using – gave ’em some fermented beverage! They handed us a few ugly looking plastic bug things, said “Use these Chigger Fry’s.” A short time later we had enough fish for supper and then some.

    Kudos to Ole and Sven for being such nice guys, Miller Lite for providing tempting trade-stock, and Panfish Plastics for creating these bugs. I now have a decent supply of colors.

    The Panfish Plastics Chigger Fry is my year around “go to panfish bait!!” I use them all spring below a bobber with a tiny jig head when the panfish are shallow. During the summer they work awesome while drift fishing for suspended gills and crappies. They simply out-fish live bait!!!!


    Amazing plastic would recommend to anyone!

  • No More Worms!

    I had been skeptical about plastics for panfish for a while, mainly because I had used ones from other companies, and hadn’t had any success.

    I read some reviews and decided to give these a try, and I gotta say, I am now a complete believer! Caught tons of crappie and perch on my first outing with the chigger fry, and then hooked into a nice brown today, as well. Each one is durable and can be used for quite a few fish. The best part is, I don’t have to deal with messy waxies or nightcrawlers any more! Have tried the white and hot pink so far. Can’t wait to try more colors!

  • Seth

    2 days in a row out fishing live bait with these plastics! Usually I would grab for my larva now I’m grabbing these… also only had to “Re bait”
    When my jig would be stolen by a toothy critters.. can’t wait to try more of there products.
