Stick with something you are confident in. I have used the same bottom bait / snowman rig for years, it worked everywhere then & it still works everywhere now. The more i catch on them the more confident it makes me.

I sit there knowing my rigs work well it's a great feeling. Add a decent proven bait and you're onto a winner.

Same applies with bait, I stick to one that I know is a quality bait and I've caught plenty on.

I'll concentrate on finding the fish then, I know the rest is upto it. Chopping & changing rigs and bait all the time leads to more questions than answers

Basic complicated rig. Length of nylon with a hair, attached to a chod hook with a kd style whipping. Different to what most use and very effective. Fish it with a bag of crumb or pellet threaded onto the hook link.

Probably more fish are caught on simple knotless knot bottom bait hair rigs, but that doesn't sell tackle😖

The knotless knot rig with a proper hair is suitable for bottom bait or snowman baits, and is simple to tie.

One thing you might find, is that a proper shrink tube line aligner does help hooking, especially with stripped back coated or totally uncoated braids.

Stiffer hooklink materials, heavy really stiff mono or fluorocarbon with a line aligner might not hook so well as 'the gape' is closed, whereas a lighter supple mono might benefit from a line aligner.

I would say that if you are having success with the ronnie, just take the putty off and fish with a wafter. I use that for all my bottom bait fishing and they are nailed every time, plus it saves you having to have 2 different types of rig to tie up

If using a straight bottom bait (18/20mm) or double bottom I'd go for the Terry Hearn one.

Long shank with line-aligner is also very good - see Frank Warwick

Noodle or Long Rig is extremely effective also...... Scott Lloyd / Myles Gibson

I've done well on all of the above

I fish the Ronnie with a bottom bait tipped with fake corn, it catches just fine. Otherwise knot less knot
with a small kicker/shrink tube, keep it simple 👍

Th ensures a rig he knows works, goes in front of the fish he wants to catch, attached to a bait he knows it will want to eat. We don't all have the time and access to such places to catch the fish th does. However the general principles remain the same for everyone on every lake. He just does it better than most.

That Terry Hearn bloke seems fairly confident in his bottom bait rig Seems like a decent enough recommendation.
