New Carper question

Recommended Posts

Hey all, Shane here from London, Ontario. I recently have been using an inline method feeder 3oz, setup as a bolt rig. The rig works great but the only issues that i have been experiencing are while fighting the fish. i seem to consistently feel like the line is being pulled from snags on the bottom while im fighting a carp on the line. It feels more like the method feeder is hitting the rocks or bottom of the river while the fish is running / fighting. and in some cases it catches pretty good, causing a break off. Just wondering if there is any solution to help prevent this from happening? i did put a small split lead about 12 inches above the method lead to prevent it from sliding down to far on my line while fighting a fish, which seemed to help, but did not fix the issue. Or is it a fairly common issue while fishing with a heavier method feeder / bolt rig setup?
