Ditto. Thinking of opening up my choices.

This is my 3rd year trolling cranks and I'm having a great time doing it. Relative to depth (100, 200, 300) but colors are about the same everywhere. Some colors work better on some days, just like jigs.

I have been spider rigging the past couple years, and would like to try long lining. Isnt the Bandit 100 and 200's the staple crank for Crappie?

I use 300 mostly but I have a lot of deep water. Our thermocline sets up about 18' or so come summer and the bandits run 12 to 15 depending on line size and amount of distance. Hold on when you go there, they run about $6 each. I have a bunch but most from yard sales whenever I can. Look on the MS forum, those guys do a lot of that and have posts giving more info.

I don't consider pulling cranks the same as longlining although I guess they technically could be because of the amount of line out and the position of the rods in the boat. To me longlining is using a jig or two off the back at .8 to 1.1mph.

So does anybody longline minnows?

On occasion, but it will attract lots of green carp. They love meat on a bone. That's what I call a minnow on a naked jig.

So what's the difference in pushing a minnow at .8 and longlining one at .8 from the back of the boat. Not being a smartaleck. I seriously don't know the difference.

IMHO ...
The amount of added weight used in pushing, in order to keep the line as vertical as possible for depth control. Out the back of the boat you don't have the trolling motor to avoid, and set depth by length of line out.
You "push" out the front of the boat ... you pull or longline troll when rods are out the side of the boat or off the back end.

Pushing that fast will put the baits back towards the boat more defeating the purpose of using longer rods. Unless you use heavier weights. I've used 1 ounce weights pushing but I'm usually fishing deep or in high winds and still not going that fast. Most say if you're going that fast pushing, you should probably just long line.

I have spider rigged (pushed) quite a bit but have never long lined. Would like to try it but I fish flooded watershed resevoirs ( Truman lake Mo. ) etc. and would think I would be hung up all the time unless I fished main lake area.
can you long line in lakes with a lot of structure?

I like tube for long lining. Minnows work very well too. After the spawn I like minnows better but I haven't used them in years. I only long line when I have to I prefer to cast and fill the thump.

You can. Just run short lines and go single jigs. Be prepared to hang up. Try to stick to the channel which will be the cleanest area most often.

I like to pull good sized hair jigs dosed with a shot of Slab Slobber.
