What size of slip sinkers do you usually use for carp? I have been useing 1 oz. and every since I started using them I have yet to hook a fish. Thanks
You are correct. A fixed sinker is often used for a bolt rig, but some people use a slip sinker in the bolt rig so that in the event that the fish breaks the line, the fish will not have to tow the sinker around. A simple version of this rig might use a barrel swivel and a splitshot sinker to keep the sinker from sliding.traphunter said:Is this where you have a heavy weight on your line so when the fish takes off it sets the hook its self? If so then couldnt you just use some sort of fixed sinker??
