Crappie fishing with an ultralite rig is a lot of fun.

Which rod/reel setup is your preferred one?

What is your preferred bait/lure on an ultralite rig?

try a shakespeare tiny deadbolt on a ultralight berkley cherrywood.( around a 40.0 rig), 2 to 4 pound P line,or berkley trilene XL , fish a 32/nd oz jig under a small balsa wood eagle claw bobber.
Many living in this generation shall never see the grave, JESUS gave us revelations and the time is very near. Dont be a soul that stands before GOD on judgment day and be told "depart from me, I do not know you".

My favorite ultralight rod is a custom made 4'10" Waterloo rod with a Shimano Sienna 500 spooled with 4lb mono. Weighs nothing and will even sling 14"ers in the boat.

Columbus took a chance and he made it.

I don’t fish them, but I got a buddy that loves the high end Diawa rods/reels and he can spank my arse with that setup, when we get under the bridges, or on the the deep water BP’s. Don’t know any specifics and he is out of country currently, so I would just suggestion you look at the various options...

I like the little berkley cherrywood rods. Shimano open face reel, I think it is a 10X. Really small & light.

I use 20lb braid, no line problems with a little bigger line.
The first 5 days after the Weekend are the Hardest.

I picked up an old 9 foot, #3 weight fly rod for a few bucks. Man that's a great set-up!

Cheers, cheers
