    run the main line thru a no roll sinker next place a plastic bead or some sort of stop so the wieght does not come in contac with the line you just tied to the swviel ..now tie your leader to the other end of the swveil and that's it.

    that is the exact point. katfish ken and i use a variation of that where we will put a second swivel on instead of a sinker. all you do is put the line through one end of your swivel so that it can move freely. then a bead then tie to your second swivel. then tie on your hook. take a piece of lighter weight line, i use 8 lb test, about 2-3 feet in length tie it to swivel number one tie the free end to your sinker. then you get the advantage of a 3 way rig, coupled with the advantage of a carolina rig, and if your weight gets hung then the lighter weight line will break off and all you have to retie is a sinker, you have saved your hook, swivel and bead. im not sure if the pics will come out, but hopefully you can make them out...

    A lot of people use the Caroline rig for catfishing.

    Yup. You can fish this rig free spool or tight-lined. I use egg sinkers in rocky conditions with no current. I seem to snag up less.

    Yeah thats like a break away setup i use but thats a cool deal ... theres a ton of rocky bottoms here that the normal way you would lose your stuff but that way u just lose a sinker ... not a bad deal at all! those 8/0's add up fast when you lose 4-5 aday with a 4-5oz sinker on them heh.:confused2:

    If you lose that many weights you should consider making your own. There is an initial cost for the metal mold kit and raw material. But you will save exponentially in the end.

    I don't fish many rocky areas or I would definitely be making my own. Check this site http://catalog...................com/. They sell molds for several types of sinkers for a reasonable price.

    Good luck
