I was fishing a channel area last night trying some new rigs. I came across one that I liked, but after I rigged it, I started having second thoughts. I used a slip bobber and tried finding the depth of the area. I placed about an ounce weight at the bottom and ran a steel leader through the line before tieing one the weight. Placed the hook on the leader. This basically allowed me to change the depth of the bait by placing a split shot below the leader where I wanted the bait to stop. Only problem is that the leader isnt tied on. It's relying on the split shot and or the knot on the weight not to come off. I caught a 2' channel on the rig without any problem, but I need to reconsider this rig.
