I had this same idea about two-years ago when I was targeting striped bass schools in the Melton Hill area of the Clinch.

I tied blue marabou patterns that mimicked crappie jigs. I used variations to try and create the lines of minnows. Also; I tied some wet-flies with blue feathers with the same idea. I caught a few of the striped bass. However; other patterns seem to have worked better. I have tried these patterns on the Clinch Tailwater for trout and they seemed less productive than other colors.

Anyhow; let me know when you come up with a good pattern to try.
