CATCH A CRAPPIE -- Angling for crappie is popular throughout much of North America. Methods vary, but among the most popular is called "spider rigging," a method characterized by a fisherman in a boat with many long rods pointing away from the angler at various angles like spokes from a wheel. Anglers who employ the spider rigging method may choose from among many popular baits. Some of the most popular are plastic jigs with lead jig heads, crankbaits, or live minnows.
