    I am wondering do any of you guys use a Texas Rig for catfishing? I use it for bass fishing with good result, I am wondering would it work for catfishing?

    I use a carolina. Thats the main type of rig that I use. So far its the best bottom rig I have found. some people do use a Texas rig with great luck.

    it might work. i know of people that use them, but i personally never used them. i always use either a carolina rig or a 3 way rig

    I have used a modified Texas/Carolina rig when I am in a STRONGE current. All I do is rig a hook with about a foot to two foot leader and put the bead and weight on it then the swivel then my main line. With out the swivel you get REAL BAD line twist especially in strong current. I do this to keep my bait from flying all over the place.

    I've heard that channel cats can be pretty finnicky if they feel any weight. I've always used carolina rigs and vary the length of leader depending on depth, current, etc. This has been a successful tactic for me. Anyway, that's my two-cents worth. Good luck.
