    I was wondering what rig type has been working for you guys. I changed my rig from just slip weights and a hook to a three-way rig and I seem to be doing a lot better. Are there any hints/tips for rigs that you guys are willing to pass forward?

    Thanks

    when i use a three way rig i take a snap and put it in the bottom hole of the three way swivel where you would put your weight and before closing the snap i put a thin gum band in it and close it up. then i thread the gum band through my sinker. that way if the weight gets snagged the gum band breaks and i just lose the sinker and not the whole rig.

    Good info Brian. I usually just use real light line on my sinker line when i fish 3 ways. Usually when im fishing in larger rocks. It has def. helped me by being able to yank the fish out of there. 90% of the time I just get the fish and my main line, no sinker.

    All I use are the carolina rigs and they work for me. I am not a fan of the 3 way rig. I like the carolina rig because I can drift with it and then if I decide to anchor I can just anchor up.
