Hey fellas couple years ago I stumbled upon a product that saved me a bunch of time Carolina rigging for bass and now I'm using it for catfishing. A Carolina keeper is a cylinder piece of rubber or plastic that has a slit in the middle that opens when you squeeze it with plyers. What you do is first slide on your weight then a bead then squeeze the keeper and slide it up your line until you leader is as long as you want it. It replaces the barrel swivel on slip sinker rigs and this also saves you two knots. The major advantage the the Carolina Keeper offers is that it allows you to adjust your leader length in a matter of seconds. This really helps me when I move from fast water to an eddy or still water because I like a short controlled leader in fast water and I like to give my bait a wider berth with a longer leader in slack water. Two ounces and down use one keeper about two to five try two keepers and I've never tried any heavier so I don't know about three or more. They run 2.59 from Bass Pro for 8 so they don't cost much. Give them a try they might just change how you fish and save you some time.
