Rod: You can use either the Bait Caster or the Spinning Rod 6 1/2 or 7
Recoil Rig Assembly:
Now that you have the material, let's put it
Startwith the line leading from your
reel. Attach the stand outhooks or the # 6 crappie hooks; try and place
them at least9 inches to a foot apart.
Then attach your main line to thepineapple swivel.
Now if you noticed at the other end of thepineapple swivel, thread your spectastic line through the openingand pull down. This will lock the line in place and you do notneed to tie it.
Next step is thread the wire through the weightuntil the opening is sticking through the weight. Here again, you do not need to tie it. If you will pull on it, that will lock it into place.
Go to the other end of the weight and slowly pullthe wire until it disappears inside the weight.
At the otherend of the weight you can
either bend the wires back towardthe upper part of the weight and cut
the excess, or I have hadfolks pinch the weight.
Last thing is either attach your luresor live bait.
This rig is used mostly on a vertical presentation and not trolling.
This is when the fun begins. Lower it beside a brush pile, rocks, stumps or stake-bed and hold on because the crappie will
If you do not get action right away, giggle the tipand allow the baits to dance a little. Do not overwork the baits so it does not look natural.

Practice Makes Perfect:
I recommend you practice with the Crappie Recoil Rig in
thepool or bath tub because if you have lakes
like in the Mid-South, they never clearup so I
have to know what that Recoil Rig is doing at all times.
I PRACTICEbefore going to the lake and throwing it.
I can promise you will have a great time catching your favorite
fish. Purchase it now and start practicing to be ready to hit the lakes this spring.
It will blow your mind when no one else is catching
You can walk up with aRecoil Rig and tear them up. The action in the video below showing worms, minnows
and crawfish in action will make you want to try this out for yourself.
Many crappie caught using recoil rigs are in the slab
Not only are crappie slab being caught with the recoil rigs; Bass, Bream,
Walleye, Pike, Trout, Catfish, and even deep sea fish are drawn to the unique lure or live bait
Something that works so good on
somany fish means you can't go
Give it a try and I mean a honest try. Don't go
throwit once and say, Oh it does not work then
throw it in the bottom of your tackle box.
Increase your chances of taking home some fish for that fish fry
by using the RecoilRig set up for crappie as I've shown
you. Good Luck!
