How is your crappie and bass pole setup? Test, length, type of rod and reel, etc

I have 2 St Croix Premier 5.5 foot long rods, with Shimano ST1000FJ reels, I like ultra lights for crappie and bass
BTW I use 4 pound mono with a 18 inch fluorocarbon leader

If you're there for the limit, you're there for the wrong reason

It all depends on what i'm throwing at them. I'm 6'1" so the longer poles seem to fit me a little better. For frog fishin i like a 7' medium-heavy with 40# braid. Crankbaits=6.5' med-heavy or med 20#braid. Tubes=5.5 med w/12#braid. Pitchin jigs=8' med-heavy 20#flourocarbon.

Crappie and perch: I use ultra lights spinning rods with 4 lb test. My favorite is a 7.5' Loomis. I also use a 3-weight Orvis fly rod with an ultralight spinning reel for crappie when the bite is really on.
I catch a lot of bass while fishing for perch and crappie, but my "bass" rods are 6.5' bait casters with 12 or 15 lb test ... I also use these for steelhead or anything big.
Also have some spinning rods set up 6 and 8 pound test for bass, catfish, walleye.
What's so funny 'bout peace love and understanding?
