The Stake Boat

I have seen various artificial structures on the site and multiple ways of deploying stakes, but this may be one of the most interesting designs I have seen so far. Congrats to Barry Bolding of Tennessee for his interesting and well-thought design.

The stake boat has 40 pipes that hold stakes in a 5 x 8 pattern. The stake platform will raise out of the water during travel. Once at your location, the platform can be lower to the water and the pipes may be loaded with stakes.

The pontoon allows for plenty of work area as well as storage for your stakes. The boat comes equipped with stake driving racks for your various size drivers.

I am not sure if we will see these produced and sold at your local boat store, but I bet a few clones will be showing up around various crappie lakes.

Angling for Crappie is popular throughout much of North America. Methods vary, but among the most popular is called 'Spider Rigging', a method characterized by a fisherman in a boat with many long fishing rods pointing away from the angler at various angles like spokes from a wheel. Anglers who employ the Spider Rigging method may choose from among many popular baits. Some of the most popular are plastic jigs with lead jig heads, crankbaits or live minnows. Many anglers also chum or dump live bait into the water to attract the fish hoping the fish will bite their bait. Crappie are also regularly targeted and caught during the spawning period by fly fishermen, and can be taken from frozen ponds and lakes in winter by ice fishing.
