Capps and Coleman Minnow Rigs
Catch crappie like Six-Time National Champions Ronnie Capps and Steve Coleman! This is the exact rig used by the team that has garnered over $1.3 million in tournament winnings and has been named Angler Team of the Year SEVEN times. These rigs are precision tied for the best balance to minimize line twist and create a near perfect live bait presentation. Each rig is created for your exact need to catch crappie at any depth or trolling speed throughout the year. The Eagle Claw #2 Type 214 EL hooks (2 on each rig) will minimize lost fish….. and lost rigs from snagging. Choose your rig based on the depth you desire to fish, tie to your line, and you’re ready to go. These rigs will save you time and energy (approx 15 minutes each) and will allow you to keep your minnows in the water to CATCH MORE CRAPPIE. The directions on the back will tell you everything you need to know.
note: all bottom lengths are measured from swivel to sinker. There is an 8" leader sinker hook #2, but your trolling speed will determine exact depth.
The MR14 (1/4 oz) is a great rig for casting and retrieving slowly under a slip bobber! You will catch a lot of fish with this method! For best results, tie the rig to our Float and Fly rod designed for this exact technique, the FFCS8!
Be sure to use a bobber that is visible from distances, and will support the 1/4 oz weight.
