The basic floating rig is setup with a bobber, a split shot for the weight and a hook with your bait. This is a very common technique for catching largemouth bass, especially among pond fishermen. Anglers typically have a lot of success fishing with floating rigs near some sort of shallow water cover such as weeds, grass, wood, docks and lily pads.
