How to Make a Carolina Rig


A carolina rig is a versatile and productive piece of fishing gear used by many bass anglers as a search bait. The carolina rig is usually used in water deeper than 10 feet. It gives the fisherman a good feel for what is on the bottom of the lake or pond. Many different types of soft plastic baits can be used on the carolina rig.

Things You'll Need

  • 1/2 to 1 oz. bullet weight
  • Clear glass bead
  • Red glass bead
  • Brass clicker
  • Swivel

  • Cut a piece of fishing line to make the leader. The leader length should be between 12 to 36 inches depending on the fishing conditions.
