Thumbar bait casters. I prefer the low profile ones. Good drag, and allow you to release line one handed when trying to land fish with a net on short line.

Hello: I buy good used thumb bar baitcast reels with a flippin switch so I can push the button, drop the line then release the button and not have to crank the reel to engage it, just set it back in the holder. I buy the reels on e-bay spending 15.00 - 25.00 each including shipping. Have a great season. O - R

I use closed bell bait casters by Tournament choice. They do not tangle, expose the line when not in use, and are easy to rig and manage. Cheap, too!

Hello: I forgot to add in my earlier post that I also put a slip bobber knot on the line and adjust it to the depth I was at so I can see to put it back to the same depth I was fishing. Good Luck. O - R

Thanks Outdoorsron this using a slip bobber knot is a real good way to stay at the same depth. I learn something new just about everyday on crappie.com.

Hi all.
I use small closed face underspin reels
for my spider, dipping, and casting reels.
All loaded with 6# strength gold. One breaks, or goes short in line - I simply rotate in a new reel wherever it's needed.
They are cheap and easy to replace.
Be safe all.

Man come on guys. Am I the only one who still uses Zebco 202 s. I may never grow up since they put a drag on them. They are in my price range too, 5.00 bucks a pop. l0l

Ha ha I've been out ranked on using my two original 202's. The wife and my 11 year old daughter use them for bobber fishing.
I run across one at a yard sale or two every now and then.
