Size 8 or Carolina keepers, I prefer Carolina keepers cause I can adjust as need quicker and easier. Also have one knot compared to 3.

I used to use Carolina keepers and still do on occasion. A note of caution with those. If you're using a one-ounce weight it will require two CCs to keep the weight from sliding down the line. Even then, if you're rigging through and over heavy cover/wood and catching big fish, those CCs will damage your line as the fish rips through the cover. I quit using them for heavy c-rigs years ago.

same. I'm not picky about the swivels but think that the bigger ones twist easier. Far enough from the lure that the fish won't care.

I use Peggit rubber weight keepers. I can then adjust as I fish. They hold really well. I can troll down a bank. Peg the weight to the hook and flip....then turn the other way, slide the weight up a couple feet and c-rig the deeper side of the boat.

I haven't thought about using the Pegit Stoppers or the bobber stoppers on a C-rig. For my the times I throw it with a 3/8 oz or smaller weight this should work well. Thanks for the tip
