    Quick question folks. I'm using no-roll sinkers for the first time this year. What's the best way to rig these things? I'm use to using a 3 way rig with bank sinkers,or Carolina style with an egg sinker. Thanks for the help. :cool2:

    Not sure, but I think you rig 'em just like an egg sinker.

    i started using no roll sinkers the end of last year i found out where i fish they will get stuck in rocks or what not... so i use a very small swivel normal carolina rig as if i was using a egg sinker but put the swivel on the line then just add the weight ... if you need a smaller or larger weight its easy enough to unsnap the swivel and change.. another note i use the smallest swivel i can get away with so if it does get cought up in the water it will break off before breaking my line since i use 65# braid. seems to work great for me.. may be worth a try for you :smile2:

    We put screw eyes in the top of the no-roll sinkers and then attach them to a sinker slide to cut down on wear and tear on the line.

    I would think under the description described where your loosing the no-roll sinker, you change to a no-snag sinker. The basics are the same, except if you hold the tip upright and reel somewhat fast, the no-snag sinker will plane through the water, above most of the snags. Just gotta use the right thing for the circumstances. No-roll / no-snag sinkers are rigged basically the same as an egg sinker.

    When called for I use the no-roll sinkers in cross current and they work great for me. I started using them two years ago, and I use the carolina rig.

    Hey Greg,
    The guys are right-on-the money with the info here, Carolina Riggin, just like your doing with the eggs sinker set-up is the way to go Buddy.
    :wink:
    Remember - when you reel in, keep your Rod Tip up as you do and don't stop reeling (If you are fishing near alot of rocks). The shape of the no-roll sinker is made to rise-up in the water as you reel-in so you don't hang-up your gear when reeling in.

    You mean they get stuck less if you rig them with the "pointy" end toward the hook? I'm not arguing because I've never even used 'em yet, but in all the pics I've seen they show them pointy end toward rod. Why do they do that?

    most people fish kind of down stream. pointy end towards the rod reduces the amount of drag trying to sweep your sinker further downstream than were you want it.

    That's a good idea:wink: but I've been buying the no-rolls with the eyelet already in 'em & use the sinker slides as well.
