Slide the end of your fishing line through the LUNKER PRO. Tie the end of the fishing line to one end of the barrel swivel using a fisherman's knot. Then, use 18-36" of lighter test for your leader line. Tie one end of the 18-inch leader to the other end of the barrel swivel. Then, tie the open end of the test line to a hook and add your bait.
Once you cast your line, the LUNKER PRO, hook, and bait will slowly sink to the bottom and your leader line with POWERBAIT or live bait will float up to the desired depth.

It can also be used in any body of water from lakes and reservoirs to big rivers or ponds and everything in between.
For deeper water or trolling. Start with heavy main line (30-40 lb test). Attach a three-way swivel. On one side of the three-way swivel tie a 6”-12” leader of 20-30 lb test with a size 2 hook. On the third side of the swivel tie and 18” piece of 20-30 lb test to another three-way swivel. Repeat adding the leader and hook. Finally, add one more 18” piece of line down to the Torpedo LUNKER PRO.
Best for slow trolling and dragging the sinker along the bottom. The vibrations the sinker causes on the bottom will grab the attention of any nearby crappie. You can also cast and retrieve this rig.
When the bass are done spawning and begin moving to offshore cover and structure for the summer, a Carolina rig is actually one of the most productive ways to catch these sluggish fish. “After you catch a bunch of smaller ones and the bite dies, you can start catching the big ones on a Carolina rig.

A single salmon egg is a great bait for whitefish using a Carolina Rig. Slide a LUNKER PRO onto the main line with stronger test, then add your swivel. Use 8 to 12 inches for a leader with lighter line. Add a small single hook. Let the LUNKER PRO sit on the bottom, but keep your line tight.
