I fished Columbus Lake yesterday with my buddy Don Hudson and we had a good day. We brought home 34 crappiei that weighed between 1.25 and 1.5 pounds. We were single pole fishing in 2 to 4 foot of water we we caught most of the crappie.

Hey Tmore. There are tons of choices of crappiei rods even for single pole fishing. When the crappie are shallow I like a 11' or 12' B&M ultra lite rod. When they are say 10 deep or more I go to a 10 and even a 9 foot B&M ultra light. These rods are truly designed for vertical single pole fishing and are hard to beat for sensitivity.
Now if you are going to be casting for shallow water crappie the 5 foot and 6 foot ultra lite spinning rods are great.
Hope that helps.

Nice Crappie

I can't wait to get on some of our lakes here and go crappie fishingi.

I have a 9' crappiei pole made for baitcasting or under spin reels. Do you use spinning rods? If so, what brand/lenght would you recommend for single pole fishing in shallow/deep water?
