Crappie Fishing Equipment


Equipment for crappie fishing is too costly to not buy the right poles, fishing line and other fishing supplies the first time.

Are you buying the right crappie fishing equipment now? Do you know what works to catch the crappie slab?

It is easy to make the wrong decision with so many types of equipment to choose from when you walk the aisles at the store

My proven knowledge found in the crappie fishing equipment section of my website will help make it easier to buy equipment that is known to work. My present articles are about equipment I personally use now and future articles will be about new products on the market that I'll be trying and reviewing.

Be sure to add my web site as a favorite to keep up with what really works on the lake.

Knowing first hand the cost involved in enjoying the great hobby of landing the crappie slab, my articles also include tips to maintain your reels, rods and other equipment used for fishing. 

What can you learn from my fishing equipment articles?

  • How to properly operate baitcaster and open face spinning reel 
  • Why fishing line comes off in circles from the reel when using open faced reels 
  • Why the bail ball bearing wears out prematurely 
  • What happens if you leave the drag on after finishing fishing for the day 
  • The proper way to store fishing rods 
One tip or recommendation alone could possibly save you some big bucks, definitely some big headaches or may even help you land a record breaking crappie slab. 

I live to be on the lake and love sharing my knowledge of crappie fishing equipment with you. 
Remember to Take A Kid Fishing, Senior Citizen, or a physically challenged person out for a day on the lake. You'll be glad you did! 

Keep the Hooks Wet!
