Hand protection is important for any angler, we like to use Gorilla Grip gloves. The material is breathable and we don’t have to worry about an injury holding us back on the water.

We maximize our coverage during the transition to winter using Driftmaster Rod Holders Crappie Stalkers for spider rigging and Garmin Fish & Hunt LiveScope.

Crappie fishermen need a strong hook that catches more fish per bite. Tru-Turn Hooks does just that! The cam-action helps us set the hook with ease.

As we reflect on 2022, we have so much to be thankful for. We are thankful for every opportunity to do what we love and for safe travels across the states for various tournaments. Motormate has protected our outboard motor transom, steering cables and hydraulics during transport for the 2022 season! We are excited to see what this next year holds!

We put Bobby Garland Crappie Baits' Mayfly to work on Jackson Lake Island in Elmore County, AL using PRADCO's Thill Crappie Cork. The Mayfly represents another common prey group for crappie: insects and produces a lot of action in the water.

Bait of choice today: Team Crappie's Spin Caller! When using this effective crappie catcher, always vary the presentation of your lure. Slow it down and then speed it up or let it drop near the structure and slowly begin reeling.
