Crappie spider rigging, otherwise known as Pushing, is a vastly popular technique to catch more and bigger crappie. Spider rigging is a very popular technique throughout the southern United States. When spider rigging, anglers typically have 6-8 rods positioned on the front of the boat and use their electric trolling motors to slowly cover water with their baits. The name "Spider Rig" comes from the spider-like appearances once an angler has setup their 6-8 rods. As always, remember to check your local and state regulations for the number of lines you can fish with before going spider rigging.
