    Yeah, you can make the slip float and jig come together, and it would be very compact.

    I still haven't played around with it much. With lake a winter draw down levels I could sling my boat under most of the docks. I have some small floats I need to give a try and see how they do

    Saw a boat spider rigging up front. The fella in the back had 4 lines out with floats in a spread 20 feet from the boat. Looked like a great setup

    When I first started "spider rigging" (more or less) I was in the back seat of a buddy's boat fishing 3 rods out the side of the boat on rod holders. One rod I started using a float on it and letting it trail well back behind the boat and the other two rods I was using. Invariably that rod would get the most hits ... catfish, bream, crappie ... and they'd usually be bigger than those that hit the two rods in front of it, even with the minnow at roughly the same depth. My buddy had 6 rods out the front (14' rods), so my two down rods were at least 20 some feet behind & my rod with the float (actually a round plastic bobber) had it trailing 8-10ft behind those two rods. Best I could figure was that the boat might have been spooking the fish a little, but once it passed over them & that one lone minnow came trailing by ... they forgot about the boat & targeted it.

    But, once I went out with that buddy & another one, Pushing jigs & then cranks, the whole idea of Spider Rigging just went away ... and I semi-retired the minnow buckets, air pumps, & hook/sinker box and now have a jig/plastics bag & a separate crankbait bag.

    Then I got Livescope and the jig bag & a 12ft rod and a couple 6-7ft casting rods are about all I take with me, anymore.

    But hey .... I got the other stuff, if/when/should I need them.

    My float fishing varies depending on the depth fish are at but the lures are pretty much the same no matter. If I'm in 10', I make sure the line length under the float is around 5' plus or minus a foot.

    Calm water and a light chop are conditions I like using floats along with small lures with subtle actions. This float as large as it is, does transmit light strike and gets pulled down by even small fish:


    A bobbing float due to wave action imparts lure action no matter lure size and even this finesse worm has caught crappie:

    Condition of no wave action and fish are less active, finesse lures lure can be pulled via the float or jerked slightly under the float so the lure hops & then dies. The strike occurs when the lure is paused much of the time. Fur, feather and silicone skirts have a very subtle breathing action with the slightest movement, so near stationary lures do well made with those materials.

    Of course spiking a lure with jar baits or live grubs may do more than a lure by itself.

    Hope the above helps.

    Spring time staple. A jig under a float with a crappie nibble. Sure have caught a lot of fish like that

    Check WalMart for Comal weighted bobbers they're the same thing. I always pick up a few packs when I have to go there. Three to a bag.
