    This is the most productive fish catcher I have ever used. It gives the bait the chance to really do it's stuff

    Yep, I'd have to agree with that one. You can also get fancy with the carolina rig and interchange different types of sinkers. For instance, you can use roll sinkers to get your bait back up under cover and 'no rolls" to keep it right where you cast it. Caution, if you are using the big weights 6 ounces on up to 24 ounces, make sure your using a plastic bead between your weight and swivel to protect your knot. You can buy them in the sewing section at Walmart for pennies on the dollar for several of them. IF you buy the ones in the fishing section they cost twice as much. Imagine that. :big_smile:

    The Carolina rig is a slip sinker rig. Generally, you will have a sinker or a sinker slide on your main line between the reel and the swivel; some people will put a bead between the weight and the swivel to protect the knot. You then attach your leader to the other end of the sinker. This allows for a bit of play before the fish realizes that the bait is attached to a line.
