I always knew that hula grubs would work on a c-rig, just couldn't get a fish to think so. I haven't ever thrown a split shot rig much, but I will have to add it to the arsenal sooner or later. It fits right into the finessey stuff spots love best.
It is very important that the weight is free to slide on the line for a few reasons. The weight slides down the line as the rig sinks to the bottom, then you pick up the slack and slowly pull the floating soft plastic worm or creature to the weight, the only thing you feel is the lure and the bass if it has picked it up. With a stationary pegged weight, you may miss the strike when the lure is moving back to the weight where most strikes occur. The brass hole stays open, where lead can be closed from rocks or vibration in your tackle box. The glass bead creates a clicking sound the attracts the bass.TampaCountryBoy said:I agree this rig can be very productive. I ran out of the clynder weights and found the self-pegging Gambler bullet weights work as well. At least the results appeared the same.
On your rig, what does the bead do if the weight is pegged?
That may be the spinning presentation that western bass fisherman callled split shot for decades, that most of us actually used the sliding Mojo weight and a small round split shot for the stopper. we used this rig with reapers and they still work great with the off set hook to help prevent line twist.Fish4FunInFl said:I have a video of Woo Daves where he uses this ' mojo rig ' or a mini Carolina rig as he calls it.
