    Default Spider rigging from a stick steer?

    Giving some thought on trading my 18 foot river boat in on a smaller boat. I am partial to g3's and there little 16 foot stick steer caught my eye. It would be perfect for some of the 20hp / electric only lakes i fish. I am not certain how it would work with spider rigging though as it seems the front of the deck where the driver sits has a small incline in the front. Do any of you have experience with the types of boats?

    I have a 16ft Express SS and on mine I mounted a Millennium Spider Loc. worked just right to butt the plate up against the transition where it angles up. I only use 4 rods when I spider rig but I have room to mount 2 of the millenniums if I wanted but I don’t like that much work lol. I though I had a picture of the setup but I can’t find it. I’ll try to remember to take one tomorrow to give you an idea. Keep in mind you will loose rod length being set back that far from the nose. I did find this picture before I mounted anything.

    Yeah nice; i guess you would lose about 4 foot? Not sure if its me getting older but it seems like every year my 18 ccj gets heavier. I always liked those types of boats.

    For what and how I fish I absolutely love a SS. I don’t have to move… run everything from one spot. It’s about 5 ft length loss.

    Without actually seeing one in person yet, would it be possible to get stubby rod holders and place them on that forward deck where the trolling motor sits? I think that would make them to far away maybe?

    Yep once you get to where it rises, anything forward is to far to reach without getting up out of your seat. My switches to the live well and bilge are on the slant and I have to slide to the front of my seat to reach them.

    I went out and put the millennium in so you could see. Lol, overlook the nasty boat that needed pressure washing a month ago.

    Thank you for doing that. Same holder i have.
    Are they comfortable to drive? I guess you cant have little T-rex arms to drive.

    Mine is a breeze to drive. It does get stiff to turn when it gets cold but nothing to bad. I did move my seat back when I first got it because it felt a little to far forward… I was having to turn my chair some to turn all the way to the left. But after that it was perfect.
