    Default Spider rigging forum?

    I would think there would be a link dedicated just to spider rigging and/pulling cranks. If so I can't find one. If not I think it would be helpful for beginners like me to have as a resource.

    Use the forum search function and you will find tons of info on it....The MS board has a Sticky at the top of the page Called pulling cranks 101 http://www.crappie.com/crappie/missi...-cranks-101-a/
    SC board has a Sticky on Longlining questions http://www.crappie.com/crappie/south...ing-questions/

    I think thats a great idea. Always wondered how you guys down south did that. It's not permitted here in Michigan.

    I'll say it again: Crappie.com is one giant spider rigging forum.

    Ok so I've paged through both links (not an exhaustive search) and I see pulling cranks and long lining. I'm more interested in traditional spider rigging. I would think a thread on s/r would be helpful if you did not have to search each state forum individually.
    I am wanting to discuss purchasing a set of 14 foot rods and would like pro and con on brand, price, action. I would think you would get more input on a subject related forum vs a state forum. There's a lot of riggers in Missouri but I thing others would benefit from a sticky type link.

    It's been brought up before, and no consensus was reached on starting such a forum ... mainly because it could lead to separate forums for every conceivable form of Crappie fishing.

    You want to "discuss" brand/price/action of long rods ... have at it. You will get multiple opinions on which ones are "the best". The same with line, reels, baits, rod holders, weight size, speed, live bait vs artificial vs both together, plain hook vs jig, which style hook the jig should have or what size plain hook you should use, and even how many you should have on the line (and whether the weight should be above them, below them, or in between them).

    Thing is (IMHO) ... they all work !!

    If memory serves me ... the more popular 14' rods are :

    BnM Capps/Coleman - or - Southern Crappie scr143's for "spider rigging"

    BnM Pro Staff Trolling rods - or - Southern Crappie scr143t's for "crank pushing"

    The BnM C/C is listed at ~$52 & the PST at ~$48 at Grizzly Jig Company (both rods are eligible for their 3rod 9.5% discount deal)

    Southern Crappie scr143 is listed at ~$42 & the scr143t at ~$47 at Southern Crappie Rods (Southern Crappie rods in 12-16' lengths are Kevlar/carbon composite)

    I live in West tn and spider rig all year. I jig to but spider more. I have 16 ft wally Marshall IM6 graphite Rods. Mine are medium / heavy action and I wish I would have got just a heavy action at times because it makes it hard getting them to boat in net . Now I like them because i can see a lil nibble on them in wind and stuff. I think they all will have pros and cons. You just have to figure out what u want more.on my reels I have diawa sweep fire I think that's what they are. I like to use the stealth glow vis braid line. I will put a good amount of cheap line on the reel and then tie my good line on to it and put enough on there to last a while with swapping jigs and what not. Maybe this info will help you a lil. Good luck
