    I rig with a 3-way swivel. I use 12lb. test for a sinker line about 3' long with a 4 oz sinker. I use a 8-10" hook line with 30 lb mono leader. This allows my Bluegill to get up off the bottom and swim about a little bit when fishing from the bank. When using cut-baits, I prefer a carolina rig with a slip sinker allowing my bait to remain right on the bottom.:wink:

    I use a Carolina type rig with a sliding sinker and a 12" to 18" leader. I hook the bream from the bottom near the tail allowing it to swim up from the bottom.

    It depends where I'm fishing. (1) If there is no hang ups I like 24" weight leader attached to a three way swivel with a 6" hook leader this keeps the gill off the bottom or a Carolina rig with a small float on the leader to keel the gill off the bottom. When useing a Carolina rig I always use a glass bead between the weight and swivel so the weight does not mess with the knot . Hope this helps and good luck fishing
