Crappie Basics 147: Choosing a Long Pole

There are many poles available so choosing can be a confusing choice. Make the wrong one and you end up with a pole that you aren’t happy using. Expert advice is important.

“The biggest question most customers have is knowing which pole to choose when there are so many available. For example, which pole does a fisherman learning to slow troll start with? We don’t want to put a beginning fisherman in expensive poles, but rather find the right balance of length, use, experience and cost. An experienced fisherman is different needing a more sensitive, costly pole. My biggest tip is to use a net to prevent a lot of broken poles.” …Wade Mansfield, Grizzly Jig Company
