How many/long poles do you want to go with & do you want to go with glass or graphite rods?

I've found a 9 dollar pole is a 9 dollar pole for a reason.

I have some Crappie Wizzards 10 & 12 footers has a foam or cork handle with reel seats and soft tip with enough backbone to hog one out of the water. You can get them at www.crappiewizard.com, but you can buy them www.GrizzlyJig.com in MO. about $28 each. I have 12 of them and I love them.

I recently bought 5 of the 13' B'n'M slo-troller rods. I think they might be what you are looking for. The price pretty much works out to $1 per foot. You can match them up with any reel that you want. Can't beat the sale price right now. http://www.cabelas.com/cabelas/en/templates/product/standard-item.jsp?id=0032642118650a&navCount=1&podId=0032642&parentId=cat600377&masterpathid=&navAction=jump&cmCat=MainCatcat20166-cat600377&catalogCode=IG&rid=&parentType=index&indexId=cat600377&hasJS=true

Years ago when we trolled ,we cut our own Bamboo.The only cost was time prepare'n them. We cut 2x as many as we needed. Does'nt hurt to have replacements. Wire them together every 2 or 3 ft in a large bundle. Then either hang from one end or lay inside on a flat concrete floor to dry. This helps keep them straight while drying. So what if you break a few they're free!:)

Hey, I still use bamboo, have it growing 50 yards from my house. It's free, light weight and strong. I've landed many big gar and grinnel without breaking one. I've cut them as long as 36 feet with about 3 inch diameter at the butt. Any one is welcome to cut as many as you want, heck bring a trailer and fill it if you want. grizzly

If some one could figure out a way to break those cane poles down for transport to and from the lake, they would be all that I'd use. But, I like the telescopic poles just because they are so much easier to handle.

What's the difference, or is there a difference, in Bamboo and Cane poles? I have always heard of using cane poles. Wish I lived closer to you Grizzly, I would take you up on your offer. Free is hard to beat.

Just keep in mind you get what you pay for. I have about 60 BnM poles 12 and 14 ft long. I have approx. $60.00 in each and thet are very sensitive and durable.

Bamboo is cane , trolling/spider rigging with corks they don't need to be fancy to land Crappie.:D

Help. I have fished bamboo and my other poles. But I was wondering about fishin with floats or corks vs. tight lining. Last time I went to the river to pole that coughtthe most was the one without a float.

If your trolling ,a fish of any size will pull enough to let you know. You can set the corks at differemt depths till you find the right one. On Nimrod we troll from 2' down to length of poles. It all depends where and season how deep you fish. I have caught tons of Crappie on bamboo poles trolling minnows. :D We have used as many as 18 poles for 3 fishermen out of one boat years ago. That was the only way my dear old dad fished. (spiderigging)
