Carolina Rigging in the Fall
NOTE: Jackie Thompson of Eufaula, Alabama, has guided bass fishermen on
Lake Eufaula for more than 30 years. This week, we'll look at his tactics
for catching fall bass.
Question: What type of plastic worm will you use
when you Carolina rig fish on Lake Eufaula this fall?
Answer: I like the Berkley Power Worm because it has a fish-attracting
scent cooked into it. I also like its natural color. In the fall, I'll
fish with a 3-foot-long leader coming from the barrel swivel to the worm.
I like the longer leader because the bass may be on the bottom or holding
up off the bottom. That long leader will let the worm float up. I'll drag
the Carolina rig along the bottom. Then I'll stop it and let the worm
continue to move and rise up off the bottom.
Where will you fish your Carolina rig?
Answer: I'll fish along the edge of a drop along a shallow flat
and along the sandy pockets in the mouths of creeks.
