crappie

Recommended Posts

If I'm just having fun then use a 6' ultrlite with 4# test mono.  If I'm catching them to eat and want numbers then  6' lite rod with 8# mono or a 12-14' crappie pole with 8# mono.

Crappie, and panfish in general, are near and dear to heart, although I'm a smallie fisherman first and foremost.  I've caught a lot of crappie. That being said, I have two outfits which I use for this species. My first is a BPS Micro-lite 6' UL with a Diawa reel to match. I load this one with 4 lb. green mono; I have used 4 lb. Fireline as well, but my bite ration seems to diminish (line vis?) as compared to mono or Fireline with a leader. This rig is used with 1/16 oz. jigs and Road Runners. My second outfit is a B n' M Sam's Super Sensitive 7' UL, matched with a 750 Symetre. This I load with 2 lb. green mono (Shakespear). This later outfit is used for the finiky bite and when I'm trying to entice a school of big crappie to take on real lite (1/32 - 1/64 oz.) jigs. I also use this rig when I want to have a LOT OF FUN....this 7' rod is a pure pleasure to use. Even the 8" - 10" crappie give you a tussle on this rod! And when tie into a 14" crappie, it's like fighting a musky!  :)
