Since Im stuck indoors today just thought I would share the products that we have been using this year and some of the results.
Ill start with the rods, I think a majority of people on this site are familiar boneheadtackle.com and there rods are hands down the best I've used. If your fishing trees or brush there's no worse feeling then getting thumped setting the hook and to have the fish wrap you up. I prefer them because there super sensitive but stiff enough pull the fish out of brush/limb before you get wrapped. yes they are more expensive than your average crappie rod but worth every penny.
the baits are mikes custom baits, he can make you any color you like. I know he's little backed up from fishing crappie masters lat weekend, but these are well worth the wait.best colors have been silver/chart pink/black.
as well as boneheads 3" slimsticks have been producing some good quality fish,best colors for me has been crystal and blue ice.
The jig heads are made by timmytoms.com , the WSD is a bladed weedless jig and thats about all I've been using all year. they work great for flipping a slip cork into thick shrubs or dipping trees/brush and not getting hung.
The ones on the right are the WSD and the top left are designed for casting over a brush pile and dragging in thru it.
And last but not least slabslobber is something that Ive been using for quite awhile now and don't fish without it.
Here are a few of the fish me and my tournament partner CELLIS have caught recently using these products.
