Anthony's Fishing Corner 🐟🎣  at Hesperia Lake Park

Carolina Rig

Catfish season is almost here at Hesperia Lake Park! 🐟 🎣
Our first catfish stock this year is scheduled for April 8, 2021.

Anthony shows us how to tie up the Carolina Rig so you can drop your lines and reel in a big one.

He uses:
• 2 oz. Egg Sinker
• Red Bead
• Swivel
• Size 4 Fishing Hook (can use a Size 2 hook)

Anthony also shows us how to tie the Improved Clinch Knot (diagram below).  



Improved Clinch Knot Instructions: 1. Pass the working end through the eye of the hook. 2. Wrap it 5 times round the  standing line. 3. Pass it through the first loop. 4. Pass it under the bigger loop just created. 5. Tighten the knot by pulling on both ends.
