Carolina Rigging in the Fall

click to enlargeEDITOR'S 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.

Answer: I'll fish along the edge of a drop along a shallow flat and along the sandy pockets in the mouths of creeks.
