RIGS

Recommended Posts

Texas rig or the floating rig same as the texas rig minius the weight. Iprefer the floating rig because bass hit the worm on the fall most of the time the floating rig falls slower giving the bass more time to look at it.

Here's your typical answer.

T-Rig for shallow and in heavier cover.  C-Rig in deepwater.  Both can be fished just about everywhere though.

Weightless <12'. I consider deep water >12'. I generally T-rig or fish with a jighead on everything except lizards which I C-rig. That's not necessarily standard, it's just me.

i use a t-rig with a quarter once weight 80% of the time. i use a 1/8 oz weight about 10% of the time and a weightless t-rig the other 10%. i use the quarter once when im fishing around timber and laydowns mostly. i like the eighth when im using smaller worms like 4" or finnessing. i use the weightless rig mostly around weeds. i let it sink slowly down in them.

Glen,

I have a problem with the response posted above on this topic.  The information is good and the suggestion is also good, but I don't think it is necessary to try to make someone feel bad for posting a question.  I have started to notice a tone recently on this forum that is a concern to me and that is that some people act offended if someone posts a question that someone else feels is "too simple" or whatever.  There have been lots of times when I have seen questions like this and I simply ignore them and move on.  There are no stupid questions only stupid people who don't ask questions, but sometimes there are stupid answers.

After looking back, I see that I misread the post and aplogize.  However, I still maintain that there has been a tone in some of the responses lately that cause me some concerns that some people are trying to turn this into a "good ol' boys club" and some people need not apply.  Perhaps I am too sensitive about this because it happened on another forum that I used to visit and the forum eventually fell apart.  Please be patient...God isn't finished with me yet and keep in mind that I spend way too much time getting information from you guys during my work day.  Sorry for the confusion -- "Never Mind!". :-[

Deep like many things is subjective Single_Shot because it "deepends" on the body of water, for example, floridan lakes are bowl shaped, with huge expanses of weedbeds many of  them are barely 10 ft deep at their deepest point, high mountainous lakes are the opposite side of the spectrum, many of those lakes are in some cases several hundred feet deep so actually 10 ft is "shallow" in them, so the term deep is somewhat confusing. What we mean when we say deep is usually when there 's an abrupt change in the bottom of the lake even if it 's less than one ft, it may be just a slight difference in inches.

Exactly, weeds also play a role in which rig to choose, when the weeds are tall a weighted T-rig is not a good option unless you are using a "light" sinker, why ? because the bait buries in the weeds following the sinker, the fish can 't see it, when weeds are tall a C-Rig is a better option, the sinker buries in the weeds but since the bait is tied to a leader the bait floats and darts above and behind the sinker remaing visible to the fish.

  I have just really started fishing plastics my self. So far I like fishing a 6 or 7 inch worm weightless or with a 16th oz. weight t-rig on a spinning outfit. I'm hooked on the c-rig. I'm having a ball with it. It takes some getting use to. I've been using a 10in floating worm with it. Good luck and enjoy the worm deal.
