Nashville crappie guru Harold Morgan has perfected a rig that lets him probe deep, snaggy cover where summer slabs lurk—without constantly hanging up. He attaches a heavy bell sinker to the tag end of his line and stacks two 6-inch dropper lines 18 inches apart above the sinker with double clinch knots. "The secret is using stiff, springy mono for your leaders," he says. "I get cheap 30-pound catfish line from the tackle shop's bargain bin. When rigged with either a small tube jig or a live minnow, the stiff leaders will stand out from the main line, which looks mighty enticing to the fish." Morgan lowers the sinker straight down until he feels it tap a stump, then he begins to reel the rig up slowly. "You often catch two fish on each presentation," he says. "And with the hooks located above the sinker, hangups are infrequent." —D.W.
