    I use a carolina rig when anchored, and prefer to use a 3-way rig when drifting. Use a lighter poundage line for your sinker to break away if hung up when using a 3-way.

    i like to use a 3-way rig when i m fishing current to keep my bait off of the bottom. i will normally make my hook leader about half as long as my sinker leader. tha way i can ensure that my bait is off of the bottom. i fish this rig in slack water and it works well. it all depends on what you feel comfortable with.

    I only fish a three way if Im using two hooks. Ive tried both ways and I like a carolina better for where I fish. I use a pole float with either. Both will catch you fish though. Use what you feel most comfortable. Good luck to you!!

    I nomally fish with the three way rig, because I can break off when I am hung.

    Listen to Walter he has been there and done it all. I will put my money on him. A great guy. I think he plans on re writing all the record books in the Henderson area.The fish DH is catching, while playin a TV star, will not count. Get it done.:smile2:
