This past September I entered a local catfish tournament with a guy who is a professional fisherman. He informed me about how many of the guys were rigging their rods at those events. This set up works well for both bank and boat catfishing.
You just have to put a small bobber between the sinker and the baited hook. The size of the bobber will depend on the amount of current and weight of the sinker. One reason for this type of set up is to keep the bait suspended off the bottom, so the catfish can locate and grab the bait easier! Another reason is that using this rig should reduce the number of times your bait winds up getting hung up on snags.
I am going to put this rig on all of my catfish rods this season, so it should help. I need all the help I can get for more catfish action this coming season. When it gets springtime again, I wish tight lines to all.
