Soft plastic baits definitely play a major role in many of my days on the water and set a baseline for many of the bass fishing tips and tactics I rely upon. Coupling different types of soft plastic baits with different styles of presentations always reap benefits under a wide range of environmental conditions.
The shaky worm fishing rig is one presentation method helping many anglers adjust to those days when tough fishing conditions prevail on the water …
In this video, Bassmaster Elite Pro, Jeff Kriet provides an “on the water” demonstration of how the shaky worm (also called jig worm) rig works under even the toughest of conditions:
Shaky worm fishing works best when scent-enhanced worms are rigged on fairly light (1/16 to 1/8 oz) jig-head coupled with light line and a slow to dead-sticking retrieve.
Give the shaky worm rig a try the next time you’re on the water and encounter tough fishing conditions!
