Whenever i use the carolina rigged lizard it never seems to work right does anyone now how to perfect the carolina rigged lizard.
Do not lift straight up and down. This will bring the weight and lure off the bottom too much. QUOTE]
Actually You can use the Carolina rig either way it is which ever way you are confident. I strictly go vertical with the rod. The only time it really lifts the weight off the bottom is when its close to the boat. I've had all my success by raising the rod straight up slowly. Personal preference and opinion I guess.
