    I was just wondering what rigs would work best for using bluegill for bait in large ponds. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

    I do not know the proper name for the rig but I call it a slip barrel swivel rig. I have used 3-way rigs and the live bait seem to wrap it self around the main line and creates a tangle mess. With the slip swivel rig the weight seems to be away from the bait.

    I will now try to explain to you on how to rig. 1. On your main line place a barrel swivel on with a 12 to 18 inch leader. DO NOT tie the swivel to the main line let it fee slide. Place the amount of weight that you use on the free slide swivel leader. 2. Place a bead on your main line below the free slide swivel. 3. Tie a snap swivel below the bead. 4 Place the hook that you would like to use on the snap swivel. This rig has help me.
