Love this site but I wish we could all call the types of crappie fishing the same names in our posts. May be it is impossible. Here is my terminology and how I do it. Ok, so where is mine wrong? LOL Anyone else struggle with this?


Spider - Rigging: pushing jigs and minnows in front of boat with 1/2 oz or less weight at 0.3 mph

Longlining Jigs: pulling jigs with no added weights behind the boat at 0.8 mph

Longlining Crankbaits: pulling crankbaits with no added weights behind the boat at 1.8 mph

Pushing jigs: spider rigging jigs with large weights in front of boat at 0.8 mph

Pushing crankbaits: spider rigging crankbaits with large weights in front of boat at 1.8 mph

I can get confusing but I would say you got it. Most of the terms used depends on what part of the country you're in.

There's also this thing called "casting" which has been working for me for about forty years.

You forgot "Relaxed" fishing, one or two minnows out under a slip float on a 12' rods around a honey hole and casting a road runner on a 7' UL and just chillin watching the sun come up!!

And then there's just drifting along on a warm spring breeze, dragging a couple of jigs. And let's not forget slip bobber fishing! :)

Don't forget, sitting in the boat with Dad or best friend telling stories (lies) and laughing at old stories (lies). Pulling the color off jigs.

Don't forget vertical jigging. Longlining can be called pulling. Spider rigging can be called tightlining and can be done almost sitting still or bumping trolling motor. Speeds for each tactic vary. Especially, longlining jigs. I commonly longline between .7 and 1.4 MPH with jigs.

And some refer to longline trolling as "tightlining" :Doh:

But, when I refer to "tightlining" .... I'm talking about "still fishing" (not moving, as in tied up or anchored & fishing straight down over the side of the boat).

We had a discussion about this very thing, what single "name" to call the different methods of fishing, sometime back ... and it basically came down to regional differences or what you first heard it called, as to what "name" you gave each one. So, I seriously doubt there will ever be a consensus on giving each method a single, identifying name.

Dippin.... 10-12' rod, jig or minnow, lowered into cover (dipped in the cover), waiting a sec for the thump then extract the jig and repeat on the next cover.

So what is dead sticking?

Rod in hand, minimal to none existent movement of the bait is what I consider "dead sticking". Or, in other words, vertical jigging without the "jigging" :fingerdance

Southerners seldom use that word crappie. Call them Specs or speckled perch around here. Do to the fact we have mostly black crappie. Many call white crappie white perch or sacalait.
