best rigs to use with a spinner reel/rod?

i have a spinning reel and rod..new to fishing but have learned much..have a 6 6 pole medium and a good quality reel that supports up to 12lb tess…the lakes i fish in have bass, brim, trout, catfish, and a few others..question is what is the best fishing rig to use for my setup to catch any of the above…tried a carolina type rig earlier but with no luck..didnt really know how to properly cast it..any info welcomed..

Chosen Answer:

almost everyone who uses light tackle on fresh water has the same rod and reel set up, personaly ive never been a bass guy so i cant help you there. and their isnt any real setups for those rods for all those fish. for cat fish i can tell you the way to catch them everytime no matter what.

take about 2 feet of line, place a number 6 hook and the top…move about 6-8 inchs down and place another hook, then 6 inchs from that place another, then at the very bottom of the line place a hook w/1oz lead sinker. at the top hook use a worm or maybe a blood worm, because the hook w/bait will be the farthest from the bottom and this will allow it to flow with current somewhat, most fish like bluegill and perch will eat that. now the other 2 maybe 3 hooks will be for catfish because the heavy weight will hold those down, use fresh chicken livers.
