Crappie Basics 114

            Don’t avoid stumpy areas when spider rigging. During the Crappie Masters Alabama River tournament, I watched as fishermen worked thick stump and tree areas. Sometimes several poles were hung at once. It was hard work the spot and getting six poles unhung at once wasn’t fun. However, rewards can be excellent for going the extra mile to challenge tough fishing spots because that is where the numbers and/or big fish might be located. -TH
