How to Setup and Fish a Carolina Rig

The Carolina Rig is a deadly way to rig a worm for summer bass fishing. When the fish are on deep structure, offshore ledges, and other open areas you’d be hard pressed to beat it. Its also a great option for dock fishing when the bass move into the midday shadows.
The idea behind the rig is to suspend a weight (preferably a tungsten worm weight) 2-4 feet up the line from the hook. This allows the bait to float above the cover without the weight holding it to the bottom. When the largemouth picks up the worm it won’t immediately feel the weight and will usually hold on to the worm much longer than with other rigs like the dropshot, texas rigged worm, shaky head, etc.
Carolina rigged worms can also be adapted for finesse fishing by changing to a lighter worm weight, light leader line, and a 1/0 to 2/0 worm hook. When using a light rig you can change to a baby brush hog, 4″ worm, small grub, or other finesse bait to catch bass when they will eat little else.
