Crawler Rig?

Recommended Posts

Guest

Fellas,
Do you have any suggestions for a good crawler rig? I'm pretty familiar with using a minnow or leech on a 3-way rig, but not so familiar with how to rig, or what to buy for a crawler rig. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Crawler rigs are generally considered a snell with two or three hooks on it. Up here we often use lindy rigs or slip sinker rigs with a snell and often a spinner as an attractant. You can also just use a single hook snell and you have the option of inflating the crawler with a worm blower.

On your way into the resort, stop at The Gateway Store, they have several varieties of rigs, spinners and slip sinkers to get you started. Good luck, guts <{{{{{><

Guts,
Thanks for the reply. It has been a while since I have fished a lindy rig. Are we talking a lindy sinker, followed by a barrel swivel, and leader that has your spinner worm rig on it? Sorry for the ignorance...

How may ounces do you use for 30'?

Go-Fish,
Right on, however you can also make up your own with removable slip sinkers, so you can change weights without retying. I like to often times use egg sinkers and a 000 split shot followed by a swivel and than a spinner with single hook. I adjust the length of the snell to the distance I want the bait off the bottom. guts <{{{{{><

      Well that is pretty sad. Had a lot of good times, burgers and dinners up there snowmobiling and 4 wheeling.   www.grandrapidsmn.com/...hill...squaw-lake/article_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d... https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=4&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjnv_rsyOrYAhUGEawKHV-ECfoQFghCMAM&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.grandrapidsmn.com%2Fnews%2Ffire-destroys-the-hill-bar-in-squaw-lake%2Farticle_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d5b1f648a.html&usg=AOvVaw1LRiuHCFf3M7Xusreg7vdH

      Nice Bluegills Ricky! Those thumbnail sized opercular flaps are super special. H e l l those are thumbers!

      Well, check that one of the list. After trudging through the slush Saturday we were rewarded with a handful of undersized crappie. We'll have to try some of the options around Pelican next time. Happy, safe fishing everyone.

      Beautiful weather on Sat and Sun. but plenty of traffic! No traffic today but still a very slow bite this morning. Could just be the weather change!??? Cliff

      Heading to that area this weekend - Curious as too how much snow cover is on the area lakes, and whether it's even worth bringing the wheelhouse?

      I spent 3 hours last Saturday morning working on “the catalog” then went about my weekend, planning to finish at the end of the weekend.  Went to open it up and the new laptop won’t make pictures on the screen.  Tried everything; no dice.  Have to return the piece of Black Friday junk.

      Cliff, did you have a lot of vehicle traffic around you on Saturday? Maybe the bad fishing on Saturday was just the weather conditions, although Saturday was beautiful weather-wise.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Same here. Thursday was a good bite and the weekend bite was mostly a bust! Cliff

      I think he's going to not wash it and keep telling everyone at the bait store and on the lake he's a Pro Staff on HSO & Outdoors Minnesota. Until someone sends him a HSO hoody or new hat!
