    yes that is right i have a idea about 3-way swivels...

    now when u use one it is supposted to keep the bait off the bottom right?

    well the swivels dont float now do they... so its basically a slip sinker rig without the slip...

    ok now what if u put some kinda bobber or somethin along that line on the 3 way swivel(to elevate it off the bottom, but not to lift up the weight)

    is this a good idea... im thinkin of trying it out SOON



    Thanks

    Jeff

    let us know how it works,

    I have given up on three ways, all i seem to do is tangle the line up to the point I go back to a regular swivel.

    Jeff, a three way rig doesn't work unless you tight line. You need fairly deep water too. You can add a bobber to a slip rig, about six inches from your hook and put a stop above your sinker to adjust the depth off the bottom. A lot of guys do this.

    Jeff, to insure my bait is not on the bottom when I use a 3 way I attach a small bobber to the line with the hook about 6" to 8" from the hook. The line with the weight touches the bottom but the hook and bait floats off the bottom. If I hang up I lose the weight but the hook and the 3 way are safe.
