Be expensive to hang that in a brushpile. Obviously worked on that day.

Basically a rendition of the larger umbrella rig for bass and striper etc. They are all a sort of a cross of the Sabiki bait rig and the wire arm bait rigs. The Sabiki is all baits in line rather than umbrella style but they will catch fish that's for sure. I think the ones where the baits are staggered more would work better. A lot of guys use to rig multiple baits on a single line with loopers.

To me it is more commercial fishing than sport fishing. And I don't mean to incite a riot about infringing on people's rights or what is legal or anything. I am just saying to ME a lot of things are more of a technique that would be closer to commercial fishing or catching bait than to traditional sport fishing for game fish species. Of course crappie are a fish that are still sort of considered a panfish to be harvested more so than sport catch using methods with limitations.

Check your state laws and regs......they are not allowed in some or on some lakes.

A Capps -n- Coleman or a double jig rig will work just as well....and you can tie your own up. Much less expensive too!

That's what I've been doing. Not one hit yet though. I use bright colors for the top jig and natural/dark colors for the bottom jig, spaced out about a ft from each other, and then a foot from the bobber to the top jig - as I am only in about 5ft of water, fishing a slough. Every fish I have ever caught at my spot has been off minnows, so I guess I'll stick with what works. LOL.

I was just curious to know your thoughts guys. Thanks and have an awesome day today! I put in a leave slip for tomorrow morning so I could go fishing. Wish me luck!! Storm moving in tomorrow evening sometime, so the bite should be great in the morning. :fish :pray

I said the same thing about long lining and spider-rigging haha. I liek to just use single pole or two poles one baited and one jig. I'm oldschool and like to work for my dinner!

Not legal in TN, max 3 hooks! But I like the idea.

I could see where I would work but you not going to work any cover with it. I would be open water only and it's probably not going to work in clear water ether. I'll just stick with one jig for now.

They will catch fish in AL. I've tried a version of them off and on. I just like the thump of a single bait a little more than the hardware.
