What is your best or favorite crappie rod that you like or recommend. And explain why you think it's the best and why you like it

mr. crappie pro and slab shaker. the slab shaker is very good for an inexpensive rod and reel. The Pro Series is a step up from Slab Shaker.

And a step up tp the Elite is G-Rod. Super light, sensitivity, and backbone to sling a 3 lber into the boat.
I have Wally Marshall, BnM Sam Heaton, ACC, Bonehead, and G-Rod and they are in line bottom to top in performance and price.


You know you are a fishaholic if you have more rods than your wife has shoes!

For dock fishing and fishing straight down, I like the Falcon Bucoo 6'6 Light action. Only cost me $50 from their shop I believe. May have been $70, I can't remember.

For Doodle socking, they make longer rods and called the Slab Slayers. But I really like the Todd Huckabee rods for this. They are quite a bit lighter than the Falcon jig poles

G-Rod, light and sensitive, but tough. I'm replacing all my bass and crappie rods with them.

ProAngler - light, sensitive, good backbone, quality stainless guides, cork or foam handle, quality construction and tough, free shipping, unsurpassed customer service, and the price is right.

You can spend 2 or 3 or 4 times more for a rod, but you won't get 2 or 3 times more value for the money IMHO.

I use a BONEHEAD 8' and have been really pleased. I have several other rods Wally Marshall, BnM Sam Heaton, ACC, pro angler, but I go back to my Bonehead. Great backbone, sensitivity, light weight for all day vertical jigging. best bang for the buck.

For fishing under bridges or in tight cover I use a 5 1/2 or 6' Shimano Sojourn. For vertical jigging brush piles or standing timber I have been using the 8' Pro Angler. Last fall I went to Waterloo Rods here in Victoria and started talking with Carson and had him find a blank to build me an 8'crappie rod. It was a good rod but it was a little heavy and stiff to my liking. After taking him a Pro Angler he said let me find you a blank. It so happened that I had a little accident on the boat about 3 weeks ago and in the process of twisting my ankle pretty bad I broke the original rod. I called him and asked him if he had any luck finding a new blank as I had broke the first one. He said "I think I found and darn good one". I said get me one made. He called me a about a week later and said it was ready. When I walked in the shop he was grinning ear to ear. I picked it up and all I can say is, WOW! Needless to say he hit it out of the park with this one. Before I even pulled out my card to pay for it I told him get me two more on the way. Tomorrow is the maiden voyage for the new Waterloo Crappie Sticker. I will still use the Pro Anglers but I have a feeling that they will eventually get a little lonely. If you are in the market for a hand wrapped custom rod made here in Texas I would definitely get in touch with Carson at Waterloo. They have been making saltwater and bass rods for years and venturing into the crappie market.

I have gravitated to the Boneheads, after trying/owning all but the G-rods...they came out after I collected a good mess of Boneheads...Never cared for the G-Loomis Rods, personally...However, I am thinking about replacing my 11 foot rear seat ACC with a rod more like the Boneheads, more backbone, great balance, fast tip, insane sensitivity when paired with braid...so I thought about checking out the G-Rod rear seat, after talking at length with TBox, as he has never steered me wrong...My problem, is that I can’t fish most of the rods listed here, as I typically fish tangles and heavy brush that limber rods just won’t get the fish out most of the time...so, it’s not because I don’t like them, per se, they just won’t serve my purposes most of the time, so I stay with what works best for me...good luck figuring out what you want....
