7. Jenko Kevin Rogers Jigging Rods


I’ve learned a lot about crappie fishing from Kevin Rogers over the years, and watching him jack crappie in Texas and Missouri with braid and a jigging rod is what made me want to get into fishing for crappie this way. So when he came out with his own rod at Jenko, I was first in line. I really enjoy the look and feel of this rod, and its simplistic approach to crappie fishing. He puts a cheap $20 crappie reel on it, fills it with braid and proceeds to jack crappie all over the country.

The rod features ultra-thin EVA foam grip, stainless steel micro-guides, no insert guide at the tip, and hook hanger all on a thin, lightweight graphite blank.

This rod is offered in 10, 11 and 13-foot mid-seat options as well as an 11-foot rear-seat option.
