carolina rig or sinker bead hook and welcome to the board
thank's im really enjoyin this site...:wink:
john, Oct 3 2009 we are on for the WCC event at pickwick!!! So ill see you in a few weeks.
Welcome to the BOC John!:0a25:.I live and die by the carolina rig in one form or the other.90% of the time I go with no-roll sinkers rigged sliding with a short 6-8 " leader.Only real exception s when I,m slip bobbering.:wink:
My selection wasnt given in the poll.. I use the barrel swivel rig.:wink:
Carolina rig for sure.
Kat bobber all the way. Bobber stop, Kat Bobber, 2oz ball sinker, bead, swivel, lead line, and 8/0 hook. Sorry I know that wasnt in the survey, but it does work well.
i know all barrels swivels are diff but thought a carolina rig had a barrel swivel witha bead
welcome to the BOC!!!! I'd have to go with the carolina rig unless I'm fishing really rocky areas, In that case I'd go with the 3-way sacrificial so I'd still get my fish.
I choose the three way rig because I can adjust the length of the leaders, either the hook leader or the sinker leader to suit the situation I am fishing at the time. I fish a lot of laydowns and trashy bottoms and the three way rig seems to work better for me. When I came to the BOC I fished the Carolina rig exclusively and will still have it on at least one of the poles that I am fishing with but I seem to have better results with three way rig.
Thanks for the post and welcome to the BOC!
The only rig I need here is a Carolina rig. I suppose if I had problems I would use the 3-way, but my situations don't call for it.
Gotta go with carolina rig as well.
Three way in deep water which is where I am 90% of the time,,
if the water is shalow 15ft of less I go wth the carolina rig.. So for me it depends on where im fishing...:wink:
Welcome to the brotherhood...:cool2:
Keith... sure looks as though you have the 3-way setup on the avatar...
Myself.. the sliding sinker... mostly a "sinker slide" setup, and then when there is problems with the bottom and structure.. its the slider with a long leader ... then its called a three way..LOL
When drifting, I use a "bobber stop" on one pole and then a "slinky" sinker for dragging the bottom on another pole...
I mostly use the carolina rig but I also use cat bobbers:cool2: welcome to the BOC:wink:
Keep hangin around it will get better!!oooh::wink::cool2:
:0a25: to the Hood!:big_smile:
I use Carolina on some, 3 way on a couple but lately my biggest fish have come on the steel leaders with the wire ends to connect two lines. I put a 4oz or 5oz weight on the bottom swivel and I only use one 18"-24" mono leader on the top wire with a 8/0 circle. I have caught my PB of each Catfish species in the past 3 weeks on this set up as well as many 2-12lbers in the past few months. At first I was worried about keeping fish if I caught a big one but it has worked on a 32lb Flat and 62lb Blue so I will continue to use all 3 types on different Rods
Carolina ring with sinker sliders and a float on the leader.
Good question. I answered carolina, but really have two other methods that I use much more. #1 is a slip bobber (fat cat or homemade). #2 is just a split shot a foot or so above a hook. It would be interesting to see a poll with at least 6-10 choices to get a better idea of what people are thinking. Whether a person fishes rivers (large or small) or lakes might also influence the answers.
