How to Chose the Best Rig?

Carolina Rig

Carolina Rigs are sliding Sinker Rigs created for bass fishing rights with a weedless hold and a soft plastic worm. The rig works with egg sinkers up to 3 or 4 ounces. Lighter sinkers help the rig pass through weeds or grass. This specific rig is designed to help fishermen catch bottom feeding fish, particularly bass fish. The heavy weight on the rig allows the bait to reach deeper waters, where fish typically stay in winter months.

Texas Rig

The Texas Rig is one of the most popular bass fishing rigs. Is is a way to fish a soft plastic worm close to vegetation or in the weeds. This rig requires a special cone-shaped weight and a “worm hook” which is made to go through the worm so that the point of the hook is not exposed. The Texas rig can be a search bait if swam through a water column just like a spinnerbait or a crankbait. Ideally, the lure enters the water with as little noise as possible, and with some controlled slack in the line, as bass will commonly attack the lure while it is sinking to the bottom.

Drop Shot Rig

Drop shot rigs are also popular bass fishing rigs as they allow you to present a soft plastic lure above the bottom to bass that are just above the bottom. They are also good with catfishing as well. Tt has a weight a hook tied inline such that it hangs with the shank parallel to the bottom. The hook should face upwards which will help keep it from getting stuck in the weeds. Ideally, the lure enters the water with as little noise as possible, and with some controlled slack in the line, as bass will commonly attack the lure while it is sinking to the bottom.

The Ned RIg

The Ned rig is sometimes referred to as the “Midwest finesse” rig because it has its origins there. It seems fishing writer Ned Kehde largely came up with the idea fishing waters around Kansas City. The Ned Rig can be one of the best fishing rigs to use during the fall and winter months when largemouth get lethargic. Small finesse-style baits will be better producers in these conditions because bass simply won’t want to chase big baits with a lot of movement.
