I'm not a big fan of Carolina rigging, I have a hard time feeling bites and I don't really have the patience for it.

Alwyas thought that Crank Bait weren't for me, until I gave them an honest shake. I am just now starting to experiment with Pitching.

Why did I guess that?   :-? Good luck with it!  8-)

I'll answer this question right after I receive my challenge in the Member's Challenge contest!  ;)

The key to C/R is a very good sensitive rod.

the key is to catch some fish on it to keep you intrested in the technique  if you throw a crig for hours upon hours and no fish then youll never go to it again  best thing to do is try it some semi shallow areas  so you can get the feel for it  and  know youll catch some fish to keep you pumped  thats the best way i learned to practice this technique before actually moving out and throwing it in deep water with a little confidence in it :D

I dont use carolina rigs at all, since I love Texas rigs so much.

I rarely use crankbaits, as I'm a big spinnerbait guy.

Wow I'm surprised that some of you guys don't like C rigging.  I at first thought I didn't like it after trying it once. Then one day I just made myself use it and have liked it ever since. I don't really not like any technique there are some I use more than others but not one that I wouldn't use.  If I had to name a technique it would be live bait I don't really see it as much of a challenge for myself but don't condone anyone who uses it though because we all have at some point and time.

C-rigging, 3-way rigging, and believe it or not, the trusty jig.  I just haven't been able to produce on those (except finesse jigs).  I don't know why, because I've given them all an honest shot.  But, not every technique is for everyone.

Take spinnerbait fishing.  Now THAT is my comfort zone.  When I'm throwing spinnerbaits, you're in MY house now!   ;)  Same goes with Texas rigged worms.  

Give me 2 rods - one of each - and I'll catch fish.   :D

I would have said carolina rig, but I bought the beads and swivels and have decided to give it another, more commited try.  Drop shotting seems like a big yawn, so I have only done it once or twice.

I haven't had much success with crank baits, but I throw them anyway once in awhile just to see if I can gain some confidence in them.  My go to is the t-rigged worm and I use that most of the time.

spinnerbaiting just isnt my forte. I catch lots of fish with them, but I'd much rather use plastics or jigs.

I still can't figure out how to catch them from the couch or my desk.

heres how i would break down this post:

from the bank,

c-rigging is a pain in the a**, and it does work, just lobbing that bad boy in most places sucks.  

drop shot sucks in most situations, again it can be used but to limited rewards

jigs too. although finesse jigs work better for some reason

from the boat:

who am i kidding, it all works from the boat!  but larger jigs just dont have a place in my heart.

seriously, cranks, t-rigs, spinnerbaits and vibration lures are my comfy-lures and i try to use them when ever possible.

not a fan of Carolina rigging. I spend time each season trying to learn or get more proficient at something...I spent alot of time with the C rig last season and walked away from it feeling like..."Well, that sucked"!

Not a big fan of tubes either...

I suck hard at C-riggin. All the way from properly rigging it, casting with the horribly unwieldly thing, or catching ANYTHING with it. I have never tried dropshotting either, however to me that doesn't seem all that different than tight-lining for catfish, except for the fact that the bait isn't on the bottom. Swimbaits are pretty much alien to me as well.

But if I had to break it down it'd be like this:

Fish Catchers for me: Crankbaits, Soft Plastics(T-Rig, Jig Heads), Jerkbaits,

Sorta Fish Catchers(I either have an OK day with 'em or I get skunked): Spinnerbaits, Jigs, Topwater

Could't Catch A Boot With: C-Rigg

Stuff I Haven't Tried....YET: Drop-Shot, swimbaits

I love c-rigging. It is one of my most productive ways of fishing. I also like small jigs/grubs on light tackle. I know I'm in the minority but I just don't have much patience with crankbaits, esp. deep divers. I have caught fish on them but all that cranking doesn't suit my style of fishing. Same with spinnerbaits. I guess I'm really really not much of a power fisherman.

Lets see.... What do I NOT use ???

Plastic worms,

Crankbaits,

Spinnerbaits,

Jigs,

Chatterbaits,

SENKOS,

.....but you said "techniques"......

Okay...

no Drop Shotting,

no Flipping,

no night fishing

There's probably a bunch more fishing stuff that I "don't do", but this is just right off of the top of my head.

So my question to any of you guys is, "Is there anybody here who thinks that I have limited my chances at sticking the monsters I'm after, because of all the baits and techniques I have eliminated" ???

Peace,

Fish
