A rod and reel for crappie fishing is a rod and reel that is designed specifically for crappie fishing. The rod is usually shorter and lighter than a regular fishing rod, and the reel is typically a baitcasting reel or a spinning reel.
The Zebco Crappie Fighter Spinning Combo is the perfect rod and reel combo for the recreational angler. Features like a durable fiberglass blank and EVA handles provide sensitivity and control for strong catches.
Adjustable front drag and the ball bearing drive ensure smooth retrieves. The Zebco Crappie Fighter Spinning Comb comes pre-spooled with 4-pound line so it is ready to fish right out of the box.
Looked around for these rods and reels for a crappie fishing trip. Was hard to find exactly what we wanted , but then stumbled across Sportsman guide!! Wow!! So glad we did!! Had what we wanted at a great price! Shipped on time, arrived on time, and most importantly was just as pictured and described!! Have told all our friends wear to shop now!! Looking forward to the catalog!! Thank you guys for being “REAL”!!!.
Not used yet. But appears to be a quality item, especially for the budget minded. Haven’t used a Zebco “anything” in years. If looks are an indicator of the product’s quality, it should be a winner. SMG’s packing and processing for shipping was SUPERB!! Shows pride and responsibility.
Pole snapped at the ferile where the 2 pieces join. Was fighting a large fish. drag burning and pole simply snapped in half. lasted a week. Good for crappie I suppose but if a larger fish hits your minnow it will not turn out good.
Maybe I just got a defective rod. I bought 3. my sons still have theirs.

I was looking for a rod that I could do some rigging with that was light and sensitive, I had a look at these and thought maybe. I am here to tell you I have been totally blown away by the performance ! These rods are super light and sensitive and have all the power you will ever need.
I recently used these in a walleye tournament for rigging and caught multiple fish over 10 lbs on these Crappie Sticks ! Very impressed !.

When I saw a nine foot long “crappie ” rod, I knew I had to have one. I can cast further with a 1/4 ounce sinker than I can with my heavier seven foot rods and much heavier weights! It’s a little whippie, but it has excellent feel, you know immediately when you get a bite.
While it’s not the perfect rod for fishing in junk, or catching lunkers, it’s great for crappies, which I suppose is why it’s named “Mr. Crappie”. It’s also a great rod for kids, since they can cast like pros with it.
I really enjoy fishing with this rod, and I think you’ll like it as well.
I have had 4 of these now, first 3 were replaced within the first 60 days of owning them with the tips breaking either during a cast or with a fish on, this last one i have had for 9 months and 5 of those months it wasn’t even being used over the winter and now the top half broke in half.
This last break was my fault as it hooked onto a limb under water and i pulled too hard apparently to get my crankbait back. The frustrating part is this is by far my favorite rod, its 8’6″ and the perfect action for crappie fishing and even some bass and bluegills, most rods this size are so rigid you couldn’t feel a fish on the line.
I luckily bought the warranty for the pole and will be getting yet another one asap. Overall if they could make this just a tad bit better i’d buy more than one for sure.
The Ugly Stik Clear Tip adds the sensitivity needed to feel every tiny nibble. Although this two-piece rod is light on power, it has still been built with Ugly Tech construction for toughness and durability.
Ugly Tuff one-piece stainless steel guides keep the line running smooth.
Originally, I was going to buy the rod only, and get a nice Pflueger reel to go with it. But for 10 extra bucks I figured what the heck. I love the rod, I got the 9′ as I do a lot of shore fishing. It worked fine in my little boat as well, I was a little worried it would be cumbersome.
My only complaint is that you cannot turn off the anti-reverse, as I like to back-reel. You have to rely on the drag. The drag does seem good, so hopefully it won’t fail in the future. I bought 2 combos, and love them.
Nice and sensitive, I got a bunch of perch last time out.
bought this rod last year and have taken it out fishing for panfish over 3 dozen times. the eyelets are holding up well. sensitive enough to show me bites i can’t even feel but string enought to reel in the occasional big largemouth bass with problem.
I love these rods. Comparable to rods rwice the price!.
With a Shakespeare Catch More Fish combo, anglers will have everything they need to enjoy a day on the water catching crappie. In addition to a Shakespeare rod and reel, the combo includes Berkley branded bait, assorted tackle, and is pre-spooled with 4 LB Stren monofilament fishing line.
Have had this product a couple months, and while I appreciate the crankbaits, beetle spins, hooks, and the Berkley powerbait sample, I’m terrible at actually bass fishing, so haven’t used those much.
I use this rod and reel on a basic bobber-splitshot-hook set up to go after bluegill and catfish. I’ve caught a few bluegill and some 2 lb channel cats with it. It handles those pretty well, and it casts pretty nicely.
Anti reverse isn’t quite instant, but that’s ok. It’s a solid enough set up to handle those small, filet sized channel catfish, and yet isn’t overkill to fish for bluegill either, it does satisfactory with them too.
For $30, I say I am getting sufficient performance. The one fuss I have with it is the line, it tends to come off the spool a little quicker than I would like to, and as a result, it does loop up at times, which can be annoying.
This may be for being slightly overspooled at point of sell, or perhaps it’s just a product of stren line having top much memory, thus being susceptible to coming off the spool and looping. Perhaps a change to a different brand mono or flurocarbon would remedy this.
For general purpose fishing, this combo gets the job done quite satisfactorily, but I wouldn’t use it as a primary bass rod. If you are going out on the water just to catch fish with no particular target species, then this will get it done.
If targeting bass, however, this shouldn’t be the primary rig one would use to do so. Anybody looking to just get a decent combo for a pocket friendly price, I would indeed recommend this product. Just note that sometimes it tends to loop up, and fix it accordingly.
If you happen to hook a catfish up to about 10 lbs, this combo should be adequate for that.

Live on the Wild side with the Shakespeare’A Wild Series. Shakespeare is’Aexcited to introduce an all new premium line of species specific combos. ‘AWith lengths and actions tailored to SALMON and STEELHEAD the Wild’ASeries combos deliver exceptional quality giving you every chance to’Aland the next state record.
I bought the Wild series 9’ light 2 pc a couple of weeks ago, it’s now 2/9/19, I’ve fished for some stocked trout with it in a local lake, and in very pleased. Great action, it’s lightweight, feels great in the hands.
The build quality is fantastic for a rod in this price range. I’m a huge Shakespeare fan, own several of the Agility rods and reels, and of course ugly stiks. This Wild series rod is much lighter in the 9’ than what I have experienced with other similar 9 footers and although I have been gentle with it, I am sure it can survive some rough handling.
Go get one, either at the Shakespeare site or at a local retailer before you wish you had one during a period when the trout or crappie are biting. You won’t get buyer’s remorse and stuff the rod into the back corner of the garage.
I purchased 3 wild series rod, a medium light, medium and medium heavy spinning rods. The build quality is very good. Hard to believe they can be purchase at $39. 95 each. I use the medium heavy rod for surf fishing and salmon fishing with 1 to 3 oz.
weights. The medium I use for striper fishing. The medium light i use for steelhead fishing. I own over 40 rods. I couldn’t even build rods for this price.
I bought a medium light and it is what I would consider medium or even medium-heavy. It’s a pretty stiff rod even in the tip, which might simply be the trend in modern rods. The medium light graphite rod this was meant to replace is a noodle by comparison.
I had hoped to return it, but given that it’s a one-piece and was shipped in an 8 ft tube it would have cost another 70% of the rod price to do so. Shakespeare customer service seemed uninterested in helping.
I might recommend it with the caveat that it’s probably stiffer than other medium-light rods on the market.

Reviews From Real Customers
I ordered pole for fishing trip out of town and received it just in time before leaving. I put Shipping box in truck without opening thinking it would be better protected in box. I opened box after arriving at camping site and found that the tip didn’t have the eye.
I searched box and ground where I opened and never found eye. Luckily I kept spare eyes in my tackle box and had some two part epoxy in truck. I glued new eye on and went fishing 2 hours later. I couldn’t return it because I put new eye on.
The eye must have broken off during before being put in box for shipping because I never found it. Pole worked good but I would have rather had original eye.
This rod is extra long and very sensitive. The finger on the rod option is fantastic. First end mount spinning rod I have ever had and that felt a little strange at first but that feeling passed quickly.
This is a fantastic design to help control your jig and feel the bite. Unlike others that have foam or cork grips covering the entire length of the rod base. Reel placement helps with the balance of the rod as well.
B’n’M Pro Staff Trolling Rod has new Dyna-Flow guides! The trolling series with the most crappie championships just got a little bit better with the addition of these light, yet very durable guides. They’re made of extremely durable alloy with smooth, stainless inserts that will never pop out while spider rigging aggressively or pulling crankbaits.
But they’re still the most sensitive trolling rod out there. Now improved and equipped with a Reinforced Hi-Vis RHV tip that allows for better visibility and a more horizontal presentation of the bait.
You get the added bonus of having a strong eyelet that reduces the instances of inserts popping out. Same great action you have come to know and love with an upgraded tip!.
I pull bandit 300s and jigs for crappie with them. They have the backbone to also handle 10lb hybrid bass that I occasionally hook also. They are well made yet still sensitive. I have 2 bm jig poles that are going on 30 years old and hauled in a ton of slab crappie on Kentucky Lake with them and they have held up with no problems.
I expect these will do the same. These rods are not cheaply put together like other brands, they are solid.
My home lake is Lake Washington. We catch 2 pound plus crappie on a regular basis. These rods have a great backbone and at the same time have a fast tip. Since using these rods I now detect bites I never realize I was getting.
These rods are awesome. You won’t be sorry for the investment if you fish very much.
If you’re an angler that loves to travel or fish those hard to get to spots, look no further than the Micro Telescopic Spinning Combo with a fully loaded Pocket Box. This easy to store combo retracts to 18″ while traveling and expands to 5′ when you are ready to fish! The 5.
2:1 gear ratio micro spinning reel with 6lb line allows you to get the fish in with ease. The Pocket Box includes pliers, hooks, bobbers, a spinner bait, spinning lure, and 2 crankbaits in a convenient lure box designed to take anywhere! Age Group: adult.
I’ve got plenty of expensive rods and reels that I love but I needed something I wouldn’t feel bad about dropping into the river on a float trip with friends. I ended up catching 8 smallmouth on this setup (after upgrading the line and loading the mini tackle box up).
I now keep the rod and tackle box in my truck and use it to fish when I happen upon the opportunity and dont have my proper gear. It had the smoothest drag out of any of these travel setups I could find which is why I bought it.
I was pleasantly surprised by how nice this thing is for what I spent. I’ve caught at least 60 fish on this thing this summer. It doesn’t have the backbone of a full sized MH rod so I miss some hook sets but fighting the ones I do catch on this smaller setup is a blast.
Great little fishing pole! I threw it in my bag and traveled to Hawaii for a little off pier catch and release. No need at the moment for fishing license off pier for saltwater. That will change next year in Hawaii.
This pole is sturdy and I cringed; multiple times thinking it may have broke with rough handling, but it’s still intact after about 8 flights! Only thing the string did come undone. It’s a common problem with this type of spin.
So that’s a given. I recommend this product and love the tiny rhinestones! A small case would be nice. Girly in a stylish way.
I bought this rod to be able to ride on my motorcycle and carry a fishing rod, best of both worlds. after searching online for a telescopic rod and reading mixed reviews from other cheap looking rods, I decided to give this a try.
So far I’m happy with this rod, I’ve caught crappie and smallies as well as trout with no issue, of course i upgraded the line. I’ve been so satisfied that I ended up purchasing another one lol.
The Pflueger President Spinning Combo offers unbeatable features and quality at a reasonable price. This combo is comprised of a President 10-bearing spinning reel and a very responsive, lightweight IM-8 rod.
The cork handle with full grip is complemented by the braid-ready aluminum spool that will make fishing a smooth and enjoyable experience.
You have found the ultimate in lightweight portability and power with this Ultra Series Telescopic spinning combo from Wakeman. For the angler that wants compact and easy transport but doesn’t want to sacrifice a full size rod for travel.
The perfect lightweight gear for ponds, lakes and rivers that can be hard to reach. Reel has ball bearing drive for smooth action. Spool-adjustable drag, ambidextrous crank handle and forward/reverse reel switch offers the features you expect.
Daiwa D-Shock DSK-2B Rod Combo comes with a two ball bearing spinning reel and fiberglass rod. The reel has a graphite composite body and ABS machined aluminum spool. Digi-gear for smooth and rugged performance on the retrieve and Twist Buster line twist reduction.
Sunnys, bluegills, panfish, whatever you call them, the St. Croix Panfish Series Spinning Rod series has models to catch them all. The panfish rods feature technique-specific premium cork handles. Every aspect of these spinning rods hearkens upon St.
Croix’s heritage in rod design and angler feedback. Rod models range from five to nine feet long.
First let me say “I have been fishing for decades” and if you have ever used one of these, you would instantly know the rod is perfect for small pan fish species and will haul in slabs of 2+lbs if need be.
A chunky. 75 lb fish is no match for these rods if fished as intended. Almost any modern rod with the newly designed carbon high modulus systems is subject to crack if high sticked or bounced around snapping snags and whipping against another object like a tree limb.
These rods are not Ugly Sticks and are refined tools to better catch finicky types with out bulling them in the boat or on shore. If you haven’t fished a St. Croix rod in decades then you surely know ZERO about these improved systems with precise feel, bend, strength, recover, speed, and glide.
They will impress a person who truly enjoys fishing and not hung up on made in America. After all, G. Loomis sold out to Shimano, a Japanese company and nobody poo poos either in quality or consistency of great innovation and products.
St Croix designed these with months of expert advice and input from the panfish angler community. Changes were made over dozens of prototypes and designs. Refined yet subtle changes were made to these rods in order to offer all Anglers a real value at an affordable price.
You will not find a single rod comparable to this series. They are exceptional and I own 3 of them. If Tackle Direct has these in inventory, the do buy if needed or wanted. At the most recent St. Croix customer appreciation day event (June 2020), St.
Croix sold out of these rods in the first two days of the weekend. I have been wanting a Panfish casting but all they offer is a 5′-6″ UL. When the make a ML or even L in 6 foot, talk to me. I’m all ears.
So for now, enjoy the spinning rod of your best Crappie experience. And tell the man who gave p on St. Croix decades ago, he’s full of bait and no fish!.
As winter dawned on the northeast US, I wanted a rod that was light enough for the target species (crappie, trout, etc. ) but could also handle the larger predators that roam around (such as pickerel and walleye) and still have a blast.
I noted that the pan fish series had a fresh redesign and I had to get my hands on one of their rods. I ended up ordering the 6. 4″ 1pc rod to have it paired with a daiwa legalis 1000 I had laying around.
When I got the rod, I was very pleased with the secure reel seat and the split grip handle, as well as the choice of guides that is perfect for mono or flouro. The sensitivity of the blank is very good, the action is well tuned and the parabolic bend is to my liking.
I first used simple tackle like jig heads and night crawlers, or a simple hook and split shot method, and I was very pleased to sense the lethargic bites of multiple panfish, but I was incredibly surprised with how it stayed in control of a surprise sizeable largemouth bass! This was also fantastic with inline spinners and small plastics, in which I had a great brown trout trip right before the deep freeze occurred.
Overall I am very content with the quality put into this rod at this price point. Im sure that this rod will excell in jigging techniques for early spring fishing for the fine fare panfish. I am happy to have this in the arsenal and cant wait to use it off the kayak.
Really happy with this rod having moderate action with the ultralight. Only thing I was unhappy with the rod was delivered with some imperfections on the cork. I have over a dozen St. Croix rods and don’t except that to happen to one of there rods.

It will meet your needs and deliver great quality at an affordable cost.
When it comes to choosing the right rod and reel for crappie fishing, it is important to consider the type of fish you are targeting, the type of water you will be fishing in, and your own personal fishing style.
For instance, if you are targeting smaller crappie, then a lighter rod and reel combo would be best. Conversely, if you are targeting larger crappie, then a heavier rod and reel combo would be better suited.
Additionally, the type of water you fish in will also dictate the type of rod and reel combo you should use. For example, if you are fishing in open water, then a baitcasting reel would be a good choice, whereas if you are fishing in tighter quarters, then a spinning reel would be a better option.
Ultimately, the best way to determine what rod and reel combo is best for you is to experiment and find what works best for your particular fishing situation.
