    What have you found to be your favorite line, color, and pound test for crappie?

    I need to buy some for two spinning reels for Saturday.

    either 4 or 6 lb. I prefer 6lb mono myself (spiderline, yozuri, or plain old trilene), as I've yanked the lips off em with fireline before ;) Just me though...I like some give in the line, because i use a stiffer rod than most guys.
     

  3. 4lb p-line fluoroclear-nearly invisible underwater-low stretch-pretty tough stuff esp for 4 lb
     
  4. I bought some 6# Ashima flurocarbon to use for ice fishing as I was told it had very little memory, limp in cold weather and thin diameter. It worked great! It has been on my Diawa medium spool diameter spinning reel for five months and still has hardly any memory coils. Used it yesterday and what few loose coils that were there disappeared in the first five minutes. Has good knot strength but you have to tie and draw down very slowly and well lubricated. Tectan from Cabela's is also a very low memory, thin diameter mono type line. Both of these are top end price wise but I feel well worth the lowest memory I have ever used. :)

    These spinning reels will go on two 12' rods for dipping brush. I just bought two of the new Zebco "Slab Seeker" reels with a depth feature to return to the same place you just were. Just hit them with the Quantum Hot Sauce. :D Great stuff.

    I always use 6 lb. P-line on my crappie spinning rod
     
  8. Try using the 4# Mr Crappie line. This stuff is great. Its camo(which is ok) but in my opinion is very good line. I also like exel .

    4lb if they are suspended over no structure.
    6lb if they are tight in the wood
    8lb for trolling.......because 9 times out of 10 I end up catching large cats when I do this. LOL.
