Carolina Rig a Worm


Carolina rigged worms are great for fishing points, gravel bottoms and to get your worm up where the bass can see it!
Difficulty: Easy
Time Required: five minutes

Here's How:

  1. Get rod and reel, worm, hook, lead, swivel, beads and leader line
  2. Thread line from reel through lead, then through a bead
  3. Tie line to swivel using palomar, Trilene or improved clinch knot
  4. Cut a 30 inch piece of leader line and tie to swivel
  5. Tie hook to other end of leader line
  6. Insert hook into worm Texas style or exposed
  7. For exposed, thread hook into head of worm and down worm until shaft if buried, then turn hook and leave point sticking out


  1. Use a lighter and longer leader in clear water
  2. Match hook size to worm - a 1/0 is good for a four inch worm, a 5/0 may be needed for a big lizard
  3. Vary lead size to depth of water, shallow water use 1/2 ounce up to 1 ounce for deep water
