Carolina Rig

Step #1

Tie worm hook on to leader of 12 to 48 inches. Insert hook in worm in same manner as Texas Rig. Tie a swivel on end of leader.

Step #2

Slip a 1/2 to 1 oz. bullet weight on end of line (tapered end facing rod). This weight can be lead (if legal in your state), steel or brass (as shown). Then slip on a glass bead (made for this purpose with hole in center). Tie end of line to other side of swivel.

The glass bead has two purposes. First it clacks against the weight and makes noise. This can be an attractor to bass. Second, it acts as a insulator and protects the knot from the constant banging and contact of the heavy weight. Many bass aglers prefer the steel or brass weight over the lead because they create more noise.
