The Carolina Rig
This is a 2-part blog on two slightly different techniques of catching fish. Decades ago, the ‘Carolina Rig’ was created in South Carolina. Locally, it was a popular way of catching fish, especially bass.
In 1991, along came Jim Nolan — to the Texas BASSMASTER Tournament at Sam Rayburn Lake. With this clever technique, he caught a record-breaking 86.6 pounds of fish!
Nolan gave all the credit to his Carolina-rigged lizard.

Next time, I’ll explain the adaptation: the Texas Dragging Rig.
