I see a lot of you guys use B&M poles. So which model is the best for single pole or hand fishing brush piles and stuff like that?

I know many fishermen use the longer poles for crappie fishingi, but I like the (SHSS 7 ft. ultra light B&M pole.) The only way I fish is hand pole.

Hey 44MAG. In deep water say 20 feet or more I like the short poles as well. No reason for the long poles when the crappiei are deep.

I agree with Ray. The BnM ultra light bottom seat poles 10 ft. my favorite.

Well you may get several answers with personal preferences here on that question.
If I could only have one for hand pole fishing it would be the B&M ultra light rear seat.

Angling for Crappie is popular throughout much of North America. Methods vary, but among the most popular is called 'Spider Rigging', a method characterized by a fisherman in a boat with many long fishing rods pointing away from the angler at various angles like spokes from a wheel. Anglers who employ the Spider Rigging method may choose from among many popular baits. Some of the most popular are plastic jigs with lead jig heads, crank baits or live minnows. Many anglers also chum or dump live bait into the water to attract the fish hoping the fish will bite their bait. Crappie are also regularly targeted and caught during the spawning period by fly fishermen, and can be taken from frozen ponds and lakes in winter by ice fishing.
