I am forcing myself to learn this technique. Forgive me if this subject has been beaten to death in the past. Just curious to see what lure you will typically try on this rig. Also, what depth do you normally target while using it, and can it be used on rocks?

Thanks for any input

You can put whatever the he!! you want on there! However, a Zoom Brush Hog, Mag Trick Worm, or Fluke is hard to beat. A GrandeBass or Hags worm is great too because they float. I fish a Carolina rig in 5ft-35ft and yes, you can fish it over rocks.

Regular Zoom Fluke is good on some lakes, and the Zoom Lizard is good on most lakes. Brush hogs are what a LOT of people use, I think that's why I do so good on Lizards and Flukes.

I have also heard of dudes using AirTail rattlers (the float up from the bottom), but have yet to try it. I have a friend that uses RageTail craws on them and it works for him....

I guess the real answer is almost any soft plastic probably can work.

Biggest trick, for me, is a HEAVY weight. I want to crash into cover and stir up mud. I want it to cause some racket.

Don't be scared to drag it through heavy grass either....worked for me last Monday ....enough for 1st place.

I like a baby brush hog on it, drag it around till you feel a rough spot or some brush.

Magnum flukes and lizards most of the time, have used everything from trick worms to Brush Hogs.

What's not good?! Lol

I Echo everything all the other guys said.

I would add as we get into the dog days of summer in my opinion nothing beats a 12 inch Magnum worm. It looks big to us but the bass don't care. Even a 14-inch bass will Hammer a 12 inch worm.

If the bite gets tough, downsize with centipede or baby snake.

I hate dragging a C-rig around. Really hate it! But it flat catches fish, sometimes when nothing else will. Like mentioned above start smaller. Bubble Fry, LFT Ring Fry, Grande Bass Rattlesnakes, Baby Brushhogs... As you learn the technique(very uncomplicated) you will find times that "power C-rigging" will work. Full sized Brushhogs, 10"-12" worms... Even more "power C-rigging"? Try a 1oz jig instead of a weight and offer em two baits. Not a complicated way to fish. Just drag it around.
