Carolina Rig

The c-rig can be VERY effective. I have alot of success on it in the mid-late spring and thru the early-mid summer especially. It differs from t-rig mostly in that the c-rig stays in constant contact with the bottom as opposed to hopping it up off the bottom like a t-rig. There is also a smaller, finesse style c-rig called a mojo rig...which is basically a miniature version of the c-rig and it works especially well on high pressure lakes and in times where the fish arent as aggressively feeding.

I personally love fishing a c-rig. Like Andy I like it mid spring through the summer and I'll fish it during early fall periods also. Unlike many, I also fish it at night. It's a very good presentation. Don't be afraid to vary your baits on it also. I've caught them on everything from a 4" worm all the way up to a swimbait.

its a good rig to throw on boone when you pull up on point as a skeeter is pulling off point :wavesmile:

is anyone having any success on this technique? I have not used this technique in a log time. How is this technique different from a texas rig? what time of year is the carolina rig the most effective?

thanks for the information. i am unsure how to set up as well as how to fish it? do i fish it like a texas rig?

yes, many anglers have alot of success with a carolina rig. the carolina rig is very different from a texas rig. with a texas rig you prolly not gonna stay in contact with the bottom, and most folks fish it with the rod in an "up" postion. with the carolina rig, you want to keep it on the bottom, and drag your rod across your body with the rod in a horizontal or slightly down postion. the carolina rig works from early spring to late summer. set up very easy, a mainline with a free floating weight, tied to a barrel swivel, a leader and hook tied to the other end of the swivel. most will put a bead between the weight and swivel to protect the knot. a MH or heavy rod will work great for this kind of fishing. good luck!
