Ever wish you could fish for suspended catfish or other game fish, but you don't want to use a slip float, standard down riggers, ballons or something similar. Well, I just might have a rig that will work for you. You need just four things to built one. A six or eight oz. sinker, six to twelve inches of fishing line, a spring loaded snap and a regular snap. Please look at my attachment of this rig. When you are drifting (wind or trolling motor) and you mark some nice arches at 20 feet in 30 feet of water, this is how you use the rig. Bait your hook with live bait thru the lips or eyes. Then cast the bait out 15 to 30 feet and attach the down rigger (spring loaded snap and line snap) to the fishing line (does not matter which you attach first). Count down 20 feet or less (standard rod measures 24" from the reel to the first eye, so you could just have 10 pulls from the reel to the first eye) and then lock it down and place the rod in the flat position of your rod holder. When the fish strikes the spring loaded line snap will come loose and then the rest of the rig will follow the line down to the fish. It will almost make your heart stop when you get a strike. Try it, you may like the action. It is best to only use two rigs at a time and it works best on the corner positions. Also, this allows you to have two Carolina rigs out the back and a couple of planer boards out to the side. Do not make sharpe turns while using this setup, turn the boat like you would an eighteen wheeler, wide and slow.
