Texas rig and a Carolina rig are the two most classic rigs for soft baits. Both of them are weedless, which allows you to fish them in a big range of situations. The Carolina Rig and Texas Rig are similar, except that for the Carolina Rig the weight is fixed at a set distance from the soft bait. This allows the bait the glide more naturally, since the line tension from the rod is only directly effecting the weight’s movement. Carolina rig is a bit more effective in open water, while Texas rig is a great choice for heavier cover.
