ok, where is the straight jacket and padded room. ROFLO. I'm no where near that bad, no where near that bad, no where near that bad. Actually, I'm not, I don't do anything other than have way too many rods for the different types of fishing I do. Just like the many/several variations of fly fishing, there are numerous ways (styles or methods) to catch crappie, and some styles suggest at least 8 rods (if legal in your state) to fish that method. Figure it up, a rod, a reel and line, x8, then all the different lures, plus the boat, motor, trailer, special trolling motor, special rod holders (you are using 8 rods remember), and the fish finders with 12" screens, DS/SI/GPS, have to have at least 2 of these too.
