trip description for Spider Rig Fishing - 4 hour in Harrison

This very personalized trip (2 person limit) will introduce you to the technique of spider-rig fishing for crappie which is especially effective during their pre-spawn and post-spawn migrations. Basically, you will be manning 6-8 poles with double jigs from the bow as the boat is slowly moved forward. This is a particularly efficient way to target suspended crappie along creek channel flats studded with brush and stumps. This shorter trip gets you back to the dock early enough to enjoy some of the other sights around Chattanooga. Read More
