This is an awesome setup.
Does not matter if it's 3' or 30' I throw it everywhere and it catches pigs.

I absolutely love fishing a c-rig, setup varies depending on whether I'm fishing shallow or deep.
95% of the time 4 to 6ft leader,1/2 oz barrel shallow, 1 oz deep. Most only fish c-rig in the summer
months or when fishing deep and trying to cover water. I am here to tell you that this rig flat out catches
fish.Shallow,deep, hot,cold,dirty water or clear year around I catch fish on a c-rig especially in grass
and wood. Its one of the few techniques that will catch fish anytime anywhere .

It’s one of my confidence techniques. Pretty much throw it on half or 3/4 lead bullet. Bead and brass are optional. The beads will chafe the line. maybe the clicking noise helps idk had great days with/without. Often I’ll miss bites and have teeth marks on the weight. ( for all y’all that thinks the perfect bait and color matter..). I put a bobber stop between the weight and the knot on the swivel. Especially with tungsten. I dislike those Carolina keeper stops. 2 to 3 foot mono or flouro leader. Usually 15#. 20 mainline flouro. I pretty much throw a fluke, brush hog, or mag lizard. I like a 784 dobyns. I use a regular wire hook. Drag it pop it twitch it hop it. It all works. Just fish it.

I use the same rod. That 784 also works great with A-Rigs.

+1. Impressive, if true, and I have no reason to believe it's not.

Caught this today on the c-rig on that set up. The bait just tends to float a little better and fish smoked it.

Really, buda? I figured you were an offshore C-rig kinda guy. C-rig is one of my favorite ways to fish.

With that resume, you should be able to sell autographs. I know I’d buy one.
