Fishing Rigs: What Makes A Crappie Rod Special?

By: mark fleagle

!p>There are so many different types of crappie fishing rigs that work to catch crappie. Common fishing rigs for crappie include the old fashion cane pole bobber and a hook or a fly rod with a ultralight spin cast or open face reel. Also there are some excellent graphite jigging fishing fishing rigs designed specifically to catch crappie. Jigging poles are manufacture in lengths of from 8 to 20ft but longer poles are somewhat awkward to use. A better selection would be a pole in the 10 to 12ft range.
When looking to purchase a good crappie fishing rig there are a few things that you need to consider, You need to make your selection based on the poles power rating and the poles action. When considering a power rating you need to understand that ultralight rods are designed that the ultralight rods are designed for line weights of 1 to 4 pound test line, and lures or jigs 1/64 to 1/16 ounce. These are the 2 different rod types that are commonly used as crappie fishing rigs. Make sure you match the rod power and action to the reel you select.
The next thing you need to consider when selecting your crappie fishing rig is the rod action. Action is the flexibility or stiffness that the rod has. A fast action rod will bend very little in fact if you used one of these rods when crappie fishing you would probably rip the hook right out of its lips. You do not want to select a fast action rod as one of your crappie fishing rigs.
A medium action rod is a common choice for walleye and small catfish. You can use a medium rod for crappie fishing if you are fishing crappie spinner baits but it probably is not a good choice if you intend to do allot of crappie jigging.
The slow action rod is your best choice as crappie fishing rig. The slow action rod will bend through out the entire length of the rod and they are perfect for the old paper mouth crappie.
