The Carolina Rig works great for walleye. Most walleye anglers will use their Carolina Rig with live bait such as nightcrawlers, minnows and leeches. Soft plastics such as grubs, finesse worms, curly tail worms and swimbaits will also work on a Carolina Rig. Some other lures that work on a Carolina Rig are spinners, shallow running crankbaits and spoons, although, using these lures are not as popular on a Carolina Rig.
