Lets try to get this forum moving a little, reflecting on 2004. Every year, Ive tried to focus on a tactic that I havent had much experience with in my bag of tricks. This year, I made an effort to Carolina Rig as much as possible, and found that I had been missing a lot by not doing so. In particular, I dont know if there is a better system for learning what is on a piece of structure and to help visualize what is going on under water. I can see where I would rely on the Carolina Rig a lot more pre-fishing in 2005 to learn the water. Interestingly, I didnt put a lizard on the entire year Something I plan to rectify this spring. My top two plastics on the Carolina Rig this year where: 1. GYB Hula Grub 2. Lake Fork Ring Fry While experimenting, I tried with varying success: 1. Craw worms 2. Senko 3. Fluke 4. Plastic worms 5. Tubes 6. Lake Fork Creature 7. Bungee Twin Tail Grubs Im wondering what else has been effective for everyone? I really didnt try any of the 3X products that would float the bait has anyone else have any experience with these types on the Carolina Rig? Happy New Year to everyone!
