How To Fish An Eagle Claw Crappie Rig

Fishing is pretty simple, you’re essentially fishing like you would a standard Crappie jig, except instead of one bait you have two. It can be beneficial to use different baits on each hook. For example, one hook can use a soft plastic bait while the other uses a real minnow. Like any rig, playing with different baits to see what works best is the key.

When I use this rig, I will be in my boat using my fish finder to find good structures on the bottom. When I find a good spot, I will simply vertical jug just above or right beside the structure.
