    Easy! We single pole fish 40-50 feet deep in 65-85 FOW winter time.

    Absolutely !! I've single pole jigged 30ft deep with a 1/16oz jig & 4lb test mono .... and the only downside was having to wait for the jig to reach bottom
    I was still able to detect the thump, even though I wasn't using as sensitive a rod as I do now.

    If it should happen that the fish take a mind to drop down around or into that deep brushpile ... give this a read and try it sometime. Probably even be good when the fish are suspended well above the brush. Crappie Pappy Article

    Single pole? I'm guessing that's just using one rod? Never seen so many rod's out at one time till I got on here, didn't know people did that. In Oregon you can have out two max but you have to buy a permit for the second one!

    Good article!

    Personally, I also prefer to use rod holding techniques that allow my fingers to contact the line at all times... No joke, there are times that I can literally feel when fish simply swim by my jig. This has made me much more successful with hookups when the fish aren’t aggressively “thumping” or “ticking” the bait.

    one of the best techniques I have found on this site is to get your jig just above (when you feel it with jig ) the brush . Having a ultra-lite reel on a long pole begin reeling in at a rate so slow it is hard to measure . If they are suspended they will come unglued on it . I also use 1/100, 1/80, 1/64 jigs to get the stubborn ones that want hit a jig size 1/32 or 1/16 . The use of nibbles are used if the water is really clear .I think crappiepappy wrote the book on this called vertical jigging . He will chime in when he reads this .

    Same here! We are allowed two rods - or lures - per person, so we have to adapt. When we drift or side pull with two rods per angler, it can get pretty hairy when doubles, triples or quads hit at the same time! I can't even begin to imagine how you go about handling 8 rods!
