Depending on how serious you are about crappie fishing, I'd recommend you go with a longer rod. A good quality 7' - 8' UL from B n' M or even one of the lesser expensive "Micro-Lite" BPS rods will serve you very well. Match it up with a quality 4# test mono and you're good to go! As far as baits go, I prefer fishing with artificials. Get yourself a bunch of 1/16 oz. plain jig heads and 1/2 doz. different colors of 2" curly tail grubs for starters. Hook the grub on the jig so that the tail follows the curve of the hook - not opposite the hook. Cast out. Let your jig hit bottom. Start a slow (SLOW) retrieve. You'll get bit. You may also want to get a few colors (make sure chartreuse and white are 2 of them) of 1/32 oz. marabou crappie jigs to suspend under a slip bobber. Get a 1/2 doz. "Road Runners" in the 1/16 oz. size (again, with the marabou tail) to complete your arsenal. This will cover most crappie moods at various times of the year.
