    Has anyone ever heard of a bolt rig? It's typically used for carp fishing but I was wondering if it would work in unison with a circle hook. It seems to me that it would, but I could be wrong.

    Trahviiz,
    In principle, this is what I use! I am using a sleeve to keep the leader from catching on the mainline and above it, I have a split shot. The weight is attached to this sleeve and will travel as far as the split shot before the line itself is pulled along with the weight. This sets the hook and allows the circle to sink itself into the fishes mouth! It Works for ME! JMHO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    That's basically what I was thinking about doing, using a small split shot or bobber stopper to get the job done. Thanks for sharing, it's appreciated!
