So stoked I registered! Sticko you are full of awesomeness I look forward to all the things I know I'll learn from you... what an awesome help!

I live a few less than 10 docks down from the marina and have gotten VERY interested in lake Houston/luce bayou crappie fishing In the past 2 years or so...
I have an oooollld center console, 1970s 16ft v-bottom, open bow with an oooolllld '72 85horse... got trollin motor and a 4 rod spider rig on the front, which is a new method I hope I can get good at :] only have a transducer on the back for the fish finder on my console... need to get a front set up - ASAP

Went out last Friday the 23rd and used the new rig for the second time - 5 crappie from about 10 am to 330 - very slow. 1 of the 4 I caught up towards the bridges in luce bayou was 10 and a half and the rest just under 10. the last one I plucked was actually up passed commons beach in the east fork. 12 inch slab..... I was working that 20ft bend that goes left to the rope swing. truse jigs tipped with minnows.

anywho I want my first limit! and thank everyone in advance for helping me get there. Happy new year!

sounds like your having fun and that is the main thing . The limits will come.

Thanks for the good words . I just hope i can help people catch a few more crappie

with my instructions. The good Lord gave me the wisdom i am just passing it on.

my boat is an old 83 skeeter but it will still catch a few fish. something with a speed

indicator helps a lot when on spider or on long line trolling. For me the best speed has

been .3 mph on the spider rig and .7 to 1 mph on the long line.

sometimes just the wind will push you way to fast to spider and get bit.

Now that .3 mph is the speed i catch most of my crappie when using a spider
rig.
But Dutch can catch them at 84 mph when he spiders but he has been doing it

much longer than i have.

If they want to get in MY boat, they have to be FAST!
