Carolina Rig

The Carolina rig is made to separate the worm from the weight so that the worm is a more natural horizontal freedom of movement. As you pull the weight along the bottom the worm will dance and dart and suspend momentarily behind the weight.

Advantages: This rig allows you to fish a worm faster through a larger horizontal area like a ledge, a flat, a weedline, shallow weed beds.

Disadvantages: It’s not particulary good around rocks like rip rap as it tends to hang a lot if you use a 1/2- to 1-ounce weight.

Texas Rig

The Texas Rig is one of the first rigs most of learned for soft plastics when we started bass fishing. The rig is pretty simple and becomes second nature after you rig about 1,000 worms this way.

Advantages: The Texas rig is weedless and snagless if the plastic is covering the hookpoint. It presents the worm both horizontally along the bottom if a bullet sinker is added or horizontally towards the top if rigged weightless. It can also be fished vertically with a heavy bullet sinker in applications like flipping, pitching and punching. It’s the best way to present a soft plastic bait in heavy cover. Keeps the hook covered. It works in grass, rocks, brush, timber and manmade structures.

Disadvantages: The more your plastics tear from fighting fish, the less weedless the rig will become.

Wacky Rig

The wacky rig offers anglers a very natural looking profile to a bait that sits horizontal in the water but falls slowly vertically and can be fished in one spot very well. It can be a weightless rig or have a ring weights  or belly weights like the Eco Pro Tungsten Wacky Rig weight added to it to get it down in deeper water faster.

Advantage: This is a great technique in clear water. The fish need to be able to see the worm but it looks very lifelike. You can fish it around floating cover like docks or around bedding bass or bass relating to vertical structures.

Disadvantage: It’s hard to fish it over large horizontal areas because it works so slowly.

Drop Shot Rig

The drop shot rig presents the bait in a horizontal fashion up off the bottom but is a tremendously effective way to fish vertically. In contrast to the Carolina rig, the weight is at the bottom, and the hook is up the line anywhere from a few inches to several feet. With this rig, you can use the weight to hold your bait in one place and fish it up and down, shaking it and enticing fish to come in and take a bite.

Advantage:  Easier to cast than a Carolina Rig, cast further than a Texas Rig and also sinks faster. Bait is always suspended and easy to adjust depth for suspended fish. It wares line less and because of weight being on the bottom of rig you can feel bottom better.

Disadvantage: Heavy line twist, and gets hung in heavy cover. Putting a swivel on the sinker helps slow twist.
