Since I live in MS, I'm not real familar with the ways AZ folks fish for crappie. In MS we do a lot of slow trolling with multiple poles with jigs or hooks with minnows. If anyone fishes this way, please take a look at Crappilogic gnats. This set-up is a simple red sickle 1/0 hook tied with different colored hair. I promise you that with a minnow on them, crappie can't leave them alone. I like them so much that I have 48 different colors to select from.
