How to Swing Big Crappie on Long Rods Without Breaking Them

With more and more anglers using long 10-15 foot rods for crappie fishing, one common problem people ask us is how do you swing big crappies in if you don’t want to net them without breaking your rod. ACC Crappie Stix pro Charlie Burrow talks about how he uses his 12-foot ACC and has no problem swinging 1- to 3-pound crappie all day. He has swung thousands over 2 pounds on his rods and gives a real simple quick explanation on how to get big crappie in the boat fast without fiddling with a net.
