    What's a very, very simple rig I could use in a calm lake to keep my night crawler suspended? I want a real simple rig, besides a slip-bobber rig.

    Use a carolina rig and 3-4 inches above the hook attach a bobber. just use enough weight to hold it down. Another way i've heard but never tried is injecting an air bubble into the worm. Walmart sells a thing called the worm blower.

    You could also use a carolina rig with a float attached near the hook. Cast it out, let it sink, and let out the amount of line you need to get the bait where you want it.

    What's wrong with a slip bobber rig? It's no more complicated than the carolina rig. Course, it keeps the bait a fixed distance from the surface, instead of a set height off the bottom.

    I don't use slip bobbers much in the rivers I usually fish (maybe I should), but have had good luck with them in Lake Marion. Slip bobbers have saved the day for me up there a couple of times. Plus, it's a lot of fun to watch the floats and see them pop under!
