Fishing Tips

"A positive attitude and an open mind are true characteristics of all good fishermen"

Finesse carolina rigs

As we get into the summer months, catching tends to become a bit more difficult.  Bass move offshore to long points where they spend the summer ambushing schools of shad as they swim by.  They also tend to become educated to all the lures they have seen in the spring.  Try something a bit different.  Downsize your carolina fishing system to get more bites.  It's a pretty straight forward setup.  A 6'10" medium power fast action spinning rod with 10# line, 3/8 finesse weight, rubber stops, 2/0 offset hook and your favorite finesse bait.  Slide on the weight, rubber stop, hook with a palomar knot and texas rig your plastics.  Go Fishing!
