Must be pretty convenient being a spinning reel guy you can just put the baits in your purse.

I grew up back east and spinning was all we used. I've tried baitcasting off and on over the
years but I've stuck with spinning and its served me well, Can't flip or pitch very well with spinning but
I don't do either of those techniques.

Most guys on her I'm sure use baitcasting for everything but finesse techniques.

I've got some MH and Heavy spinning rods that I use to drag jigs up to 1 oz and it works well. Do whatever
you feel comfortable with.

Both. I have zero issues using either one. Both are very effective when used properly depending on the circumstances. I've been thinking of buying a left handed bait caster and giving it a try because I use a spin cast and fly fish that way.

I agree. I drop shot with a spinning set up, and use both spinning and a baitcaster for a shaky head. I can cast and pitch with my spinning set up just as easily as I do with my baitcasters.

I use a Reel Time Rods spinning rod for drop shoting and a Power Tackle spinning rod for a light shaky head and a baitcaster for a heavy shaky head.

When I "power" shot, (use heavier line and larger baits) for drop shoting, I use a baitcaster.

Ok. So, I've had some REALLY great spinning gear in my days. Stella's, Steez's, with GLX rods. I wanted to like them. Hated them. Had each one for less than 2-3 weeks. I don't, for the life of me, understand WHY people would EVER want to use a spinning setup for drop shot fishing. The worst thing that effects spinning gear is line twist. Also, the worst fishing technique for CAUSING line twist is drop shotting. It's like a marriage made in HELL!! Also, the whole thing about the spinning reels being SOOOOO SLOOOOOWWW. WTH?!

So, what I do now is I use a Daiwa Pixy and a Falcon Cara medium fast baitcaster. And if the line twists...so be it. It NEVER flies off the spool. It is fast enough to actually reel in a fish before its time to go home. And it doesn't hurt my finger when casting.

Keep the spinning gear at the crappie barge.

You will never hit your goal of Future Bassmaster AOY without a spinning setup.

I've seen a lot of those sissy rods taking money from you big, bad, snot blowing, power fishing cats. For shore.
