How to fish an umbrella rig.
One of the advantages to fishing the spider Rig, is how easy it is to fish productively. Start with
either a wire line, monofilament, or braided line set-up on a boat rod (minimum rating of 15-30lbs) and attach an average length of heavy leader material. Then attach a snap swivel that is rated for 30 to 80 lbs of pressure. Lastly, attach the rig and put it in the water and you are ready to catch. A slow to average troll speed (2-4knots) will produce the best results. Just drop it back and wait for the bite! Spider Rigs will produce anywhere, especially when trolled over structure or around rips and shoals. The tangle free design will have your lines in the water instead of on the deck of the boat.
