I have used bobber stops as well. You don't have to use a swivel unless you are trolling, then you will see that by design the lizard, fluke, etc. will spin giving you lots of problems with line twist.
I frequently use the rig as you do with bobber stoppers, for quick adjustments, I call it the Modified Carolina Rig and it's quite handy.

Hi, thank you for your inquiry. If you wanted to when you are rigging as a Carolina Rig, you would attach a swivel to the opposite end of the leader length with an improved clinch knot. Tie the line to the swivel through one of the line eyes. Make sure to pull the knot down tightly and trim excess line from the knot.
Slide a bullet weight onto the end of your main line so that the point is facing up the line. Place a metal, glass or plastic bead onto the line below the bullet weight.
Attach the main line to the swivel using another improved clinch knot. The main line will attach to the eye on the opposite side of the swivel to the one used for the length of leader.
