    This is my "go too" set-up. I make a basic carolina rig. Then I take catfish chum mix "Majic Bait" and mix it 50/50 with bread crumbs. Mix in enough water until it gets doughy. Take the dough and cover your sinker up with it as shown in the pictures. Put the rig in a zip lock bag and freeze it. When your ready to go fishin,put the bags in a container and then in cooler with ice( I use dry ice). If your a bank fisher,you can cast this rig a country mile and it WON"T come off. It works just as well drift fishin from a boat and will last around 45 minutes to an hour. After you have caught a few fish,your area is chummed up EXACTLY where you are fishin and you don't need the chum rigs anymore. I make about 15-20 and take them with me. You can use any dough bait you'd like and any cut bait or live bait you'd like,I'm just showing my "basic" set-up that consistantly catch's fish.

    So does that mean that you will have to freeze multiple sinkers that are covered with the doughbait?

    I`ve seen a similar style that fishermen use to catch carp. Seemed effective. I`m going to have to try your rig next time i get out.Thnx!!!

    does the line still pull through the sinker with the chum frozen on the sinker? or do you have to wait for it to thaw some?

    The sinker won't slide until the chum has thawed some,but I use circle hooks and the weight of the chum on the sinker helps hook the fish. I've missed very few fish using this method and haven't killed by using circle hooks. I'd rather miss a fish then kill it any day they'll be there the next time..

    you think this will work well with a bell or no roll sinker? i am thinking of definately trying this one out the next time i go. nice looking setup you have there.

    I use it with an egg sinker,but I'm sure anykind would work. I'll take a picture tomorrow without the chum on the sinker so you can see what it looks like.

    Looks like you could leave a trail right to your bait if you are drift fishing. If you put a small straw through the weight and then thread your line through the straw It might let it slide on the line still. I was thinking of maybe a stir straw or something like that??

    Great idea, can't wait to try it!

    bob, are you pretty much making a snell setup with the weight on there? if so, how long are they, and how far is the weight/chum from the hook?:0a22:

    I usually run the hook from 12"-18" from the sinker

    There are many variations to this rig, just experiment until you find the one that suits you best. Freezing the chum is the guts to this rig,how you do it or what kind of sinker you use is irrelavent.:wink:
