Crappie Basics 119: Holders & Poles

“Sometimes it can be hard to see a bite on a pole. Maybe the sun is blinding, you’re busy doing something else or things might be going crazy in the boat. Our rods holders are numbered 1 thought 8 by slot instead of by poles. If we call out “Number Five”, we know where to immediately grab. So if a pole or two is missing due to changing baits or removing a fish, it makes it easier to find and call out a bite by holder instead of pole. We immediately know where to grab whether eight or five poles are in the holders.” Garrett Steele
