    Which do you prefer for rocky rivers/snags? A three way rig with sinker(pyramid,bank ect) on light line for easy break away or a carolina rig with no roll?

    I'm With Jim, I Too Prefer The Breakaway Rig. Tying On Another Sinker is Easy & Fast.

    I use Owner Circle Hooks & They Get Spendy When You Start Losing Several.

    Breakaway rig would be the one I would use for that application.

    I like the breakaway also but using a sinker slide and not a three way swivel. With a sinker slide the fish get much less resistance when he grabs the bait.

    When using a break away rig is there a guide you use to determine which test to use? For example, I use 50 lb big game line, what should I use for the break away, 20?

    the break away works well but i also tie my hook about a foot or two above my line and tie my sinker on the bottom. works sometimes but ya still snag up..can ya use a slip float?

    I fish predominately the Columbia River and man we got rocks! I use a round weight with a break-away line. You won't believe this but right now fishing for the monster Sturgeon I use a round weight 14-18oz.(the size of a tennis ball) to get to the shelf bottom at about 70-80ft. then drops off to well over 100ft. The current is ridiculous. I hate to loose a weight that big, they cost over $3.00 a pop. Being round I get most of them back. No I don't cast them out, I bounce them out. Drop over the side of the boat and when it hits bottom pull it up and let more line out. repeat until desired location achieved.
