Itís a double minnow rig. Tie the barrel swivel to your main line and hook a bell sinker to the clip on the bottom. Rig it up with minnows and enjoy the thump [emoji1303]

I use them spider rigging. Be sure to stay above the brush piles cuz it can get to be a nightmare if you get a couple hung up at once lol

I recently started using these and a snell hook (the hooks that already have a leader tied on) instead of those eagle claw pre made rigs

My dad taught how to fish with a crappie double rig. They were very common in the 70's. Back then used baitcaster's with 17lb test. We fished for food not fun back then.

Dad taught use to use those fished under a bobber. Set-up as mentioned above, and cast out. bobber keeps bait at desired depth.

My mom's favorite set up. Put a crawler on the bottom a minnow on top a big steel nut with a piece of wire for a sinker cast out put rod in holder with a big bobber on top of rod and wait for walleye or northern pike. (bobber so you can see the rod from the camper) Lots of memories in that setup.

just a name for drift fishing with any number of poles out the front making your boat look like a spider. Most riggers only go 0.1 to 0.5 MPH.
I use 14' poles with 2 hooks 1 on top then about 18" down a 1/2 oz barrel sinker then another hook below that. Hope this helps you out

Bell sinker on bottom main line to the top
Add a minnow each hook thru the uppper back
Drop down about 12 foot deep or so vertically and set rod down
Watch rod tip closely
A terribly high number of crappie have been had with that rig for ever and ever
I bet that rig is a duplicate of one that’s been around 50 years or more

Spark plugs worked well too

I got mine personally from Wally Marshall at Grizzly Jig here about a month ago. Went back down there last Saturday and they didnít have any on the shelf yet. Wally informed me that when I had bought them they had only been out for 4 days.

So I need to wait until I get my boat ready and pick a spot and vertical cast it over the side and watch and wait.

I don't know as I'd refer to that as a "vertical cast", so as not to confuse it with Vertical Casting ( Crappie Pappy Article (http://www.crappie.com/articles/crappiepappy.htm) ) ... though I suppose you "could" use that rig in the Vertical Casting technique.

It is, plainly & simply, a pre-rigged double minnow/live bait setup with wire extenders to keep the baits out away from the central line. It's primary function is to be used with a stationary technique, but can be used in techniques that involve slow movement.

I probably have some of them in my tackle, somewhere, but never got around to using them because it's just as easy to rig a similar setup with loop knots ... and not have any "metal" components in the rigging. And with loop knots, you are more apt to break one of them if you get hung up, whereas with the pre-rigged setup you could lose the entire rig. (not to mention the ability to utilize different hook sizes, a jig & hook, or two jigs when using the loop knot rigging) :twocents

What I understand of vertical casting is basically drop it straight down from where you are at. Flip the bail and let it sink. Which could work off a dock too I guess.

I need to learn the loop knot. I only use the palomar and improved clinch knot and need to learn more.

Also plan on spending a couple days at Pine Creek in mid to late March. There will be a lot of talent at those get togethers to help you out.

"Vertical Casting" (as I laid it out) is dropping it straight down, but then reeling it back up verrrry slowwwly. Dropping it down & leaving it there is what I refer to as "tightline" fishing, or as my Grandpa called it ... "still fishing" (ie fishing with the rod sitting still/not moving). That was way before rod holders, so our rods were laying on the boat seats of a flat bottom wooden row boat. Might have even called it that because he expected the anglers in the boat to "be still" as well (specifically me :Rofl ).

It's in southern Oklahoma about a half hour west of Broken Bow. Weather and water conditions permitting we will most likely be having a Crappie Camp sometime the last two weeks of March. Bring a tent, spend a couple of days and you will be go home with all sorts of knowledge about Crappie fishing.

I would love to but doubt I can swing it.
