Carolina Rig Tricks! Big Worms And Creature Baits For Bass!

July 6, 2020 93 No Comments


The Carolina Rig is an awesome way to catch big bass! It can be adapted to virtually any fishery if you know what changes to make. From different worms and creature baits, to different hooks and weights, there are a lot of variables to consider. Tim goes in-depth about how and when to fish the Carolina rig and shows all his favorite components in today’s video. 

Whether you’re on a Southern impoundment with bass gathering on ledges or on a small Northern fishery fan casting open water, the Carolina Rig has a place in your arsenal. If you don’t know exactly how to set it up it can be incredibly frustrating to cast and even more frustrating to detect a bite. Tim loves fishing the Carolina rig and understands both the benefits and struggles of the technique. He shares some of the modifications and adaptations he uses to consistently catch fish with this presentation.
