Any successful bass fishermen will tell you that there are just a handle of rig setups that they use regularly to catch monster bass.  One of those is no doubt the Carolina rig. Bass tournaments have been won and lost by the proper/improper use of the Carolina rig. Today’s tip comes to you from LakeForkGuy on YouTube.  He is going to go through how to rig up the Carolina Rig, and best techniques to use. If you haven’t seen Lake Fork Guy’s YouTube channel, you own it to yourself to go check him out at LakeForkGuy.

What’s great about this video tip is that he goes through 2 different rigging options for targeting shallow water and deeper water fish.  Give this rig a shot on your next fishing trip. You’d bee surprised what it can produce.

Here is a list of the items you’re going to need:

  • Obviously a rod and reel spooled with your favorite line
  • Weight (bullet style or barrel style)
  • Swivel
  • Hook (he recommends light wire hooks)
  • Bobber (cork) stopper
  • Glass beads or tungsten clackers (optional)
