How to Pick a Crappie Rod

•    There is a difference between the crappie rod holders used on boats and the ones that you use when fishing from shore. Make sure you look for the right one if you plan to use them when fishing from a bank.
•    Take a good look at the different designs available and choose the one that would suit your individual needs the best. For example, you can choose an adjustable system that can hold four rods at a time or rod holders with a pivoting design that puts tension on the fish helping to set the hook.
•    If you plan to go ice fishing there are some rod holders that are designed especially for crappie ice fishing. With these, you’ll need to make sure you buy the one that suits your stature the best.
•    Price is also a factor that you’ll need to consider because crappie rod holders can be found in a variety of prices.

Using several rods at a time will increase your chances of reeling in more fish and this is one of the main reasons why rod holders have become so popular. They help to ensure that all of your fishing trips are fun and productive each and every time you go crappie fishing. The convenience they provide can make any fishing trip more fun.
Crappie rod holders make it possible for you to go trolling for crappies, which allow the angler to cover a lot of ground much faster than fishing with one rod. This makes it faster and easier to find the location of the crappies and since you can use different baits, you can find out what gets their attention faster. As a result, you can spend more time reeling them in instead of figuring out what mood they’re in.

Of course, it would be hard to handle several rods at a time plus taking care of the boat so take along a friend or two to help you out. Fishing in groups is more fun anyway because you have someone to share your adventures with and it’s also safer. If you’ve never used crappie rod holders before, then you should give them a try. Once you see all the benefits they provide, you’ll wonder why you waited so long to purchase one. With the tips listed above, you can pick out the right crappie rod holder for your needs so you can get the most out of all your fishing trips.
