The only Carolina Floater for Carolina Rigs—it floats the rig above grass. Or, turn the float around, and the cup face makes the worm a fantastic topwater lure. Also keeps worms from pulling off the hook.
Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by They do work great Used them in a State Tournament a couple of years ago. Well I caught more fish on the Carolina rig with those things. Keeps the bait just off the bottom. When you bump a stump or rock, the bait will continue forward further then not using them. Bass just seem to think that looks more natural. just make sure you get the bigger ones if you have a 4" or larger bait on a 3/0 or better hook. The smaller floats on bigger rigs don't have the same effect. Use the smaller ones on smaller hook setups. Also use a bobber stopper to keep the float against the hook. If you are one of those who likes to stop the rig for a minute, the float may climb up your leader. August 30, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 not as bouyant as I hoped I got the 3/4 inch size. They are bouyant but not AS bouyant as I hoped. I used one of these with a 2 inch tube on a carolina rig like a bullet weight, but the tube only floated a hair more than it would without the bullet float. I then stuffed one in the tube and it popped right up from the egg sinker and the barrel swivel. In the current it floated up just r ight. So at this point I have the tube floating off the bottom as i pictured, only it takes two of these floating bullets to make it happen! Still, big greasy tube floating about 8 inches off the bottom waving in the current. This ought to really catch a bunch of smallies trying to fill up in the pre-spawn! April 5, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Not convinced ? I got these things to suspend a worm in the water column. I have used with a Zoom trick worm but I'm not sure they work. I carolina rig and give myself an 24" to 36" mono leader above the glass and brass but I still dont know if I am getting desired effect (floating worm above bottom) Are the Zoom trick worms not boyant enough for this application?

Rated 5 out of 5 by floats They do exactly what you would think. Suprised someone hasnt come up with it before now. July 16, 2012

A: 
It's just not as bouyant as I thought it would be. Luckily for me, I fish with a tube a lot so I can use one like a bullet weight on the line right next to the tube, (only it floats instead of sinks), then I stuff another one up inside the tube. With two of these floats (one on the line and one in the tube), the tube really pops up nice from the barrel swivel and the egg sinker.

A: 
no, the float goes on before the hook just like you're texas rigging, without weight. the float will keep the worm above the grass. just make sure your leader is long enough. you need a stiff rod and and a good hook setting action.

A: 
Sure they will work....
You might find better choices by checking your locals though.
Ice fishing jigs, etc., are very light....and the bite is delicate. If you're fishing panfish.
Now...if we're talking minnows for walleye or pike....that's different!

A: 
Certainly. It's all about the depth. You can set it a different depths to help determine the location of the fish. You will always be able to go right back to the same spot fish after fish.
