  • ESP Rods– These are high performance ultra-light rods, not the typical buggy-whips you find in department stores. They feature a patented handle called “Vibration Amplification System™”. Everyone that has tried these rods loves them.
  • Tim Huffman has a super series of books and videos about Crappie fishing at
  • Staying warm in freezing conditions is easy when you start with a great base. Check out the Under-Armor®, 3.0 Base-Layer.
  • Seven-time Crappie Champs, Capps and Coleman have a signature, B’nM Pole. It features a sensitive tip action to detect, light bites.
  • The Humminbird 1197c SI Side Imaging Sonar-GPS Combo features a massive 10.4″ display. The performance is truly amazing.

Stocking stuffers…

  • Real Magic line treatment is a great gift. It reduces icing on line and increases casting distance.
  • Navionics’ Smart Chip for your GPS-Sonar combos are feature packed with satellite views, 3D views and so much more.
  • There is a new reel lubricant called Pur-Tungsten. It is super slick with a drag co-efficient of 0.03. That is like zero friction dude!
  • This Reaction Strike Revolution Shad Lure looks as good on a cracker, as it does in the water. There are sizes for Crappie to Cobia too.

Speaking of crackers, I think I will put some Vienna sausages in my brother’s stocking. That will be a funny surprise for Ron.

  1. TJ – I still have the brochure you game me from ESP rods. That was a simply amazine rod you had at SEOPA as far as sensitivity in concerned. I noticed when I got home that the company is in Lake Mills, IA. That is just 10 miles from where I grew up. Hope to get back there next summer and will try to make a visit up to Lake Mills and buy one (or more) of those crappie rods.

    Have a Merry Christmas.

      Thanks man. They are great rods. The power and sensitivity is truly amazing. I hope you get your hands on a couple, soon. Have a blessed Christmas Don.
