Someone in the past has also mentioned doing something similar to Carolina rigging a crankbait, a tip I also recently added, but it resembles a drop shot, not a c-rig. Use a 3-way swivel and tie a weight to one end and the crank to the other. That will also keep the crank down deeper than if you were to just cast out and reel in. Set the length of line you want going to the weight for the desired depth and tie a few feet of line to the crankbait. I just don't understand how anything rigged with a three way swivel doesn't turn into one giant twisted mess. It's a great tip, but not on my immediate list of things to try. After thinking about either rig, I would still prefer suspend strip weights or suspending cranks.
