Kits for panfish & crappies

Recommended Posts

Wondering what everyone thinks of the various kits for crappies & sunnies. I think some are even available here at fishing MN. Do you have a favorite? My brother has a basspro crappie tube kit he likes.

Kits are great when you are just entering into a specific kind of fishing, say crappies, and are not sure what to use color-wise, size-wise, or basically what to use. As you become more adept at identifying certain colors or baits for certain conditions you will find yourself getting further away from the kits and more in tune to specific baits. Like anything else, there will always be items in these kits which you will learn are little more than filler- some thing to make it look like you are getting a lot for your money. But in reality, it is a fair way to go to get a few of this and a few of that without having to spend a great deal on lures you'll use once and then still have a bagful in your tackle taking up room.

Both of the kits from www.tacklecity.com are a good place to start and after a while you can get it dialed in as to what individual jigs and colors work best for your needs.

Cabelas has some nice kits for crappies and panfish. You have to build them, but they come with everything you need to build it. I bought one last year when i went down there, but you can go online and ask for a catalog or just to cabelas.com and order it.

    • just saw it yesterday in Alex..darn good stuff too!!!
    • that is so great!!!!!  You folks are raising a good son!!!!  
    • Well I couldn’t make it over there yesterday, so my son went over today after school to tell her thank you but he’s going to take his stand down. After a 30 mins conversation with her, he now gained bow hunting, shotgun hunting and turkey season next spring. She told him that he has permission as does the other gentleman and don’t worry about it. This is where it gets good. Cole went out to his stand and guess who shows up asking what he’s doing. The other “kid”. Asking why he is back out there, Cole explained to him that he talked with the land owner and sees no reason why they both can’t be out there. The guy stormed off. So I called him a while ago.....yes the first 15 mins were not some of my best moments, but I finally was able to get to the bottom of his problem. He’s never shot a deer, he’s never shot anything and only took up hunting 3 years ago. Whoever has been “coaching” him has given him some very bad information. Told him things that I’ve never even heard of. So I told him not only will we help set you up, but we will move your stands into good spots, I will hang a double set if wanted and either myself or my son would be glad to sit with you and help walk you through the first time, video tape it and even offered to let him come sit in my ground blind on my field and get him a shot a doe any night. We are all meeting tomorrow night so i can go over some maps with him and show him where I would put my stands at if I were him. I told Him instead of running my son off who could a complete asset to him, learn from him. He might be only 15 but he’s a wealth of knowledge and loves everything about hunting, not just the killing part. He just wants to be in the woods and help others. Looks like a bad situation may turn into a good one.  I hope at some point this fall I can post a picture of my son guiding this gentleman to his first archery deer. 
    • Does anyone know of a place in the Brainerd Lakes area where you can rent a wheelhouse that you're able to tow yourself? I'm not referring to renting through a resort or guide, where you're restricted to the lake and spot they put the house on. I'm looking for one I can haul around. 
    • I did a search ans it seems a shortage happens once in a while. That search came from 2013 and it was the same problem. Hope it just a temporary thing because it makes such great toast.
    • I see it all the time at Cub. They had a big sale on it Sunday night - maybe they were trying to get rid of it.
