fished Enid with my dad today, started off slow but we were able to put 18 in the live well. Not a bad day pulling cranks, enjoyed the day with my pops.

Nice work. I would like to start pulling cranks for crappies, and am wondering about the following:

1. Do you need a fancy line counter trolling rod, and if so, how long does it need to be?
2. If you had to pick your top 5 crappie cranks for stained water, what would they be?
3. How do you accurately determine how much line to let out to achieve a certain presentation depth?

Sorry for all the questions, but I'm a newb to open water crappie fishing, and am trying to broaden my technique, especially for summertime slabs.

Check out the pulling cranks 101 thread on the ms state page. Tons of good info. You do not HAVE to buy a bunch of expensive equipment, but it sure helps to get dialed in on the fish to know the amount of line out.

Way to break the new rig in the right way! Gonna be covered in slime and scales at that rate!
