what type of rig do you catfish with most of the time?
For the most part a bottom floating rig.
A Carolina Rig.
Carolina rig for me too, sometimes with a float on the leader
I use all sorts of different rigs but this is the rig I use the most.
Nice picture Johnny!! I use the same as he does:wink:
A Carolina Rig most of the time.
I use a Carolina rig too or a slip-float rig.
Bottom rig myself.
i use the same rig as 777 but i use a trolling sinker.
longbow, that rig is for anchor fishing it is 18 to 24 inches long. I use the excact same set up when drifting with 2 exceptions. The leader will be 3 ft. long and I will use a snake weight made out of 8 1/4 oz. egg sinkers.
Carolina rig here, i like the floating rigs though, gonna give them a shot.
Thanks for the advice!!!
Something im seeing a lot more of is using the 3/16 lead wire (its hollow) strung up on heavy braid in place of slinky weights. I use 100 lb power pro braid with a swivel tied on, slice off about a 5 in piece of lead wire, thread the braided line through it and pinch it off tight at the swivel.....pinch top and bottom end of lead wire.......add 2in. float and circle hook. I use the slinky weights too but this is fast becoming my favorite rig since it doesnt hang up as much as the slinky weights. You can also cut it different lengths depending on how much weight you need. The braided line is extremely strong and pinching the lead on doesent seem to affect the braid. Ive seen several guides using this method and decided to try it myself. The only drawback Ive seen is having to learn to tie different knots to secure the braided line to hooks, swivels. Its starting to show up in some of the tackle stores in Santee by the roll and is made by Bullet Weights. About 8 bucks a roll and you can get around 20 cuts out of a roll.
Ken, that sounds like it would work well, If I can find some I'll give that a try when we start drifting.
mariofish i use slip bober rig:cool2:
