Someone please post a picture of what a carolina rig looks like. Thanks in advance.
From top to bottom. sinker,Swivel,leader ,and then hook. Sorry I cant draw, but that is all there is to it.
I would recomend a bead between the sinker and swivel. This will keep your sinker from messing your knot up.........
Don`t forget bait
This is my setup. I am not good with artwork, so forgive the bad design...haha:
I have found that many of my beads over the years seem to be harder than my pure lead sinkers.I believe a bead will often cut your line as quick or quicker than a pure lead weight.I have found that 1/4-1/2 inches of aquarium tubing will stop this.I still use a bead if necessary due to the hole size in my sinkers.I often saved and used my cast net sinkers with the larger hole.When I got into reloading,I proved what I had suspected for years.Lead fishing weights come in many different weights and hardnesses for the same so call common weights.I found that they varied over the years,with the same weights from the same reputable Outfitter and mail order out fit that is still in business today.I have also ordered beads from them in the past.I think that lead alloys are often recycled into fishing weights with no thought as to hardness or the slight weight difference.After all,it would only affect few.I am 61 years old.I think that this was going on before I was born as I have found some very hard OLD sinkers.peewee-williams
I actually have found some beads that are soft rubber instead of the hard plastic ones that everyone uses. They are mainly used for European style carp fishing, but work well with the Carolina rig shown above. If anyone needs to know where to get them, PM me.
Welcome to the BOC, Chris!! I don't think I have had the chance to welcome you, yet.
Thanks Scott for the picture of the setup. And everyone else thank you for your additional knowledge.

I love those rubber beads, sometimes its hard to get large Power Pro through the hole. They sell em at West Side.
