    Good separation on the rods, that should do well. Most folks, myself included, have a hard time biting the bullet for the up front cost of the rods and reels. If you buy what's recommended first it winds up being the most cost effective by eliminating the second choice that you try at first. My experience pushing is limited and I never ran more than 12' long rods, so I'm best to be quiet about long rods and 3oz weights. Here in FL we have no white crappie and cranks are a whole different animal, so I stick to long line jigs and do very well. I had 2' of separation on my long lines and tangled pretty regular. Have gone to 3' of separation and it works much better until you get a bigger fish that decides to hang a hard left wont be turned. Gonna happen no matter what separation you use. Good luck with it and keep us posted, we all learn from one another.

    Nate I use the regular 14 scr to push cranks with but I only use a 2 oz weight and they work find. They seem to let the cranks work better with the tip action and I also have had better hook set with the give in the rod. Just experiment and see what rod works best for you. Main thing is having confidence in what your doing

    Skeetbum I appreciate the info. Be for moving back to TN I was living on the ocean in VA, after offshore fishing, it doesn’t hurt near as bad as it used to buy the correct fresh water gear. If you are Gonna offshore troll better have a 2nd even 3rd job to support your habit lol.

    I lived in Manchester for 10 yrs and got my cranking experience there. Something else I found was that they start hitting cranks earlier than some folks think. I was trolling the deeper staging area's while everyone was fighting for the spawning zone. Did very well. Solid Black, purple over chartreuse, and a pink that leans toward red as much as you can find was always in my spread. Good luck with it.

    Nate I use 10 lb izorline pulling and pushing cranks. I personally use 6 lb izorline longlining and spider rigging. There again it's a personal preference on the line and the weight of the line. If I'm fishing a lake with heavy structure I'll go to a 10 lb for spider rigging. I've just got use to the light line.

    Not to hijack this thread but I was wondering how y’all are running your crank setups? Where are u adding the 2-3oz? When I push minnows/jigs I run an in-line egg weight about 12” above my hook. Also, does anyone know if the 16’ ACC trolling rods can handle 3oz weight? I am currently running (6) 16’ ACC trolling rods off of a single, 6 rod Hi-Tek.

    Around here the 2oz trolling weight is attached to a clip or swivel on the tag end of the main line .... then a 5' leader runs between the weight and another clip/swivel attached to the crank. I've seen some members relate that they use 3' leaders & 3oz weights, so it's all personal preference on weight & leader length. But, most I know of have the weight ahead of the crank.

    When I Push jigs, I have about a 2' leader line, at least ... and if cranks are in the mix I try and use at least a 3' leader for them, if not longer. I've only sparingly Pushed cranks (from my boat) so when I do get more into it, I'll likely use a 4-5' leader line.

    Can't comment on the ACC rods, since I have no experience with them.
