    I was pretty caffeinated last Sunday morning sitting on my boat with only my thoughts. I was waiting for a bite when I made this rig for using two carp heads at the same time.. Later that morning when I reeled it back in I was wondering what the heck I was thinking.. But hell, seems like a good rig to me.. WHAT DO YOU THINK!!??

    ** In case you were wondering, It is two 10/0 king khale hooks tied and glued together with a 4 oz no roll on the main line.. The little bobber is just a shock absorber to protect the knot..

    Give it a thorough testing. looks like they would interfere with each others hookset to me. Just mho.

    Look like one wicked setup. Let us know how the test goes. Look like it should catch fish though.

    Looks good to me, just check the state laws on the two hook one line thing!, I often use steel leaders that have two different length leader wires but one peice. I always use two different kinds of bait to see which one is getting the most bites... this is a great tactic to get the seasonal bait preference down in your area:wink:

    Looks great for snagging the logs flathead like to swim under when they run also.

    Very creative. I've been pondering using cut carp for bait this summer, and this is one approach I will try.

    Do you use carp heads often? I had one I wanted to use last year but never got to it.

    I like live carp better, but if I am catching them too big, then OFF with their heads!! I have caught several large flats on a carp head, even my AZ C&R state record was on a carp head...

    ** You can give em a stomp before you cast for a little bit more scent release.
