Carolina Rig Vs Texas Rig?

Recommended Posts

One of my favorite farm ponds has a very soft & muddy bottom.

Would I fare better using the Carolina rig as opposed to the Texas rig?

 

The pond is about 10 ft max.

Also what worm would you toss?

 

Thanks

Reggie

You could use both. I use a T rig when fish are more aggressive, a C rig when the bite is tougher. As far as worms, I usually use a ribbon tail worm. I also use creature baits though. A brush hog works awesome for me.

I like the C rig for those kind of situations where you are dragging bottom to cover water and find structure and bottom composition. I prefer to throw T rigged worms at "targets" like laydowns, stumps, etc. Hard to go wrong with green watermelon or pumpkin.

Soft mucky bottom isn't good for either T- or C-rigs using traditional weights between 3/16 to 3/4 oz.

Check out the Mojo rig, site has a Vedio, split shot or slip shot rigs.

The key is using lighter weight 3/32 to 1/8 oz and small high flotation worms. In the weeds you want a straight tail worm that swims through easier. 4 1/2" to 6" worms work good on the finesse presentations, with size 1 light wire worm hooks.
