C Riggin

Recommended Posts

I read that I need a floating worm for a C rig. Now what should I buy and what color and size? Is the beed needed on the rig? Should the leader from the swivle be stronger then my terminal line?

The traditional Carolina rig consist of a heavy 1/2 to 1 oz sliding sinker, bead, swivel, leader and soft plastic creature or worm. The weight goes on the main, the bead follows and the sivel is tied on to act as a weight stopper. The leader can be whatever you want it to be; monofilament or fluorocarbon up to 48" long or so.

The finesse C-rig out west is called a slip shot rig and consist of a lighter mojo or Pro-Jo cylinder weight, glass bead, Peg-It or Carolina stopper, no swivel and the main line is used without a leader. The advantages are; one knot and a direct connection to the hook for better feel of strike detection and ease of changing the distance between the weight stopper and hook. The slip shot rig uses weights from 1/8 oz to 5/8 oz depending on the depth, wind and line size.

Roboworms are high floaters and work very well for either C-rig or slip shot.

I fish all my soft plastics on C-rig with great success from senkos to lizards. I think with a c-rig that you are able to present your weapon of choice with a much more realistic presentstion and the bass feels less resistance when he picks up your bait.

You can use just about any plastic you can think of on the back of a C-rig and catch fish. My personal favorites are Zoom lizard and centipedes, sweet beavers, and red shad Berkley power worm.  If I am fishing floating worms I will either fish them weightless or on a spot remover jig head.
