I picked up the 12' Wally Marshall's at BPS, Cabellas carries the 12' B&M poles. These poles are super sensitive so you can see the slightest movement at the rod tips and it keep the poles out away from the boat. I always spider rig now, 2- 4 poles off the front end and equal amounts in the stern depending on how many people are in the boat. Depth management and speed (.5-.7) are the keys to successful spider rig fishing. When the water warms up I will probably switch to jigs and long line jigs and roadrunners.
