Regardless, what kind of rod do you use for panfish?
Most panfish anglers favor rods with thesepower ratings, although medium-weight rods (for lines of 4- to 12-pound-testand 1/8- to 3/8-ounce lures) sometimes are used as well.
What is the best color jig for crappie?
For clear water, bright light, such as mid-afternoon on a sunny day, I like a white body jig with a blue head. In cold water, an all-white jig is tops. Other good combinations in these conditions are: orange-white, pink-white, red-white, and chartreuse.

Evening And Early Morning In the case of crappie, the best time to catch them is during their feeding time, which is most frequently between the hours of midnight and 2 am. Additionally, during dawn and dusk can be good times to catch them, with many of them also feeding during these twilight hours.
The water is still cold, but occasional warm spells, mixed with longer daylight hours, can cause baitfish, and therefore crappies, to start moving up in depth. Baitfish are critical. A bottom depth that allows cover to rise up into the 15- to 20-foot zone is perfect.
A 5 to 7-foot medium ultralight rod is your best bet to catch crappie and have great fun doing so. Some fishermen prefer much longer rods, up to ten feet or more. Other crappie fishermen prefer a medium or slow action, or light graphite rod. Regardless, these rods are versatile and appropriate for catching crappie.
As water temperatures climb throughout the lake into the 50's and eventually above 60 degrees, slightly larger minnows are preferred by crappies. Therefore, anglers gravitate to slightly bigger jig bodies – typically a 1.5 to 2-inch body on a 1/16-ounce head.
A rod's length affects casting distance, accuracy, and hook set leverage. Longer rods (over 7 feet) will cast farther than shorter rods of the same power and action, and shorter (<under 7 feet) rods will be more accurate. Longer rods also give you more leverage on the hook set, as they take up more line while swinging.
The first reason why crappie rods are so long is so you can make a quiet approach. This is especially important if you are fishing from a kayak or boat. ... They have good hearing and they can feel you coming, so the farther away from the fish you can be when casting your rod, the better.
Water temperatures around the upper-50°F to 60°F range begin to bring crappies shallow into spawning areas. Peak spawning activity generally occurs at water temps of 68°F to 72°F for both black and white crappies.
If the fish are in cover such as trees or stumps, look for small clusters of trees in the water that form a sort of fortress where the fish can hide. Once the water reaches 57 degrees, most anglers agree crappies start spawning. They can still be caught while spawning, and often do so in 18 inches to 3 feet of water.
