rat nests from a beginners reel. Bamboo poles are great, tangle free poles that should be on your crappie fishing

use them because they are sturdy enough to catch any slab crappie out there, and they are very flexible.

Graphite rods are excellent for crappie fishing. They have flexible tips that you can feel even
the slightest bite. These rods are extremely flexible, but strong enough to pull a big crappie out of the brush.
They also are perfect for the need wrist action when jigging for crappie.
Graphite ultralight rods are perfect
for crappie fishing. There are three main reasons to have a graphite ultralight rod:
Reason #1: In
order to get the right jigging action, you're going to need an ultralight rod that gives you the right amount of movement.
Most of the up and down action of jigging is in the wrist movement. So an ultralight rod works great for not over-stressing
the forearm muscles.
Reason #2: Crappie lips are paper-thin. The ultralight is so flexible
that when you set the hook hard, it won't rip through the crappie's lip or right out of their mouth.
#3: The flexibility of the ultralight make fighting a crappie through the water a blast! I don't know
about you, but I like to feel the fish fighting when I set the hook and start reeling in.
