    The question comes up every so often asking what is a drift rig. I put together this little video that shows it more clearly and concisely than it can be explained.

    That's VERY similar to the rig I use to bounce my bait along the bottom from an anchored position...or a controlled drift in the river that we fish here in Se Kansas.

    We've not tried the float...but as far as the snagfree sinker on bottom...and the bait rigged above...that's my go to rig in normal water conditions. (Which tend to be when a guy gets hung up the most)

    However...if the current is really rolling...we'll just rig Carolina...with as little as possible weight...sometimes a splitshot or two...up to 2 or 3 oz if there is enough water to get the bait down.

    Interesting about the slip float...I'll have to try that.
