    I was curious what size hooks and bait/line as well as rod & reel. I am getting ready to go crappie fishing on moving water so hard to use floats real effectively. I'm fishing the West Branch of the Susquehanna River.
    Any suggestions? I need to try something different but not sure what to change or do so I'll take your advice. Thank you much.

    A small rod and reel with anywhere from 4 to 8# test line. I usually use jigs or minnows with #4 hooks. If you use jigs have an assortment of colors cause those crappie can be picky. I have better luck using minnows though.
