Choosing the right plastic for Carolina-rigs could mean the difference in catching fish consistently, and not getting bit at all.
Last week I discussed good plastic choices when flipping for bass in heavy cover. This week let’s look at the plastics for dragging bottom with a Carolina-rig. There are numerous options to choose from, but for me, here are a few key plastics I am confident in.
My starting bait for a Carolina-rig is a small creature, like the Zoom Baby Brush Hog https://zoombait.com/creature/hogs/baby-brush-hogs/ . It is compact so it can be cast with ease, yet produces a fish enticing action with its curly tail. This bait also does a good job imitating a crawfish especially if that’s what the bass are feeding on. If I’m getting a lot of small bass on this bait, I’ll bump up to the larger Brush Hog.
