Many new bass anglers are constantly on the look-out for different bass fishing lures and methods for rigging them. One of the apparently simplest bass lures to use can often be a tad more difficult for many fisherman who are just starting to try them out … these baits are basic plastic worms.
Almost from the first time we hear of plastic worms, it conjures up images of the first “live bait” many of us fished with … the ever-present earthworm!
So it’s easy to see why many new plastic worm fishermen think it should be a snap to use the artificial version right … just push the hook tip through the worm, cast it out and you are ready to go …
Though many plastic worm rigs can be a little more complicated there is at least one plastic worm rigging method that is straight forward … the wacky worm rig.
The best part, fishing the wacky worm rig for bass is also pretty straight forward.
Here is a short instructional video from Shaw Grigsby and the folks at Strike King providing the ins and outs of rigging and fishing the wacky worm rig using soft stick baits for bass fishing …
Next time you head out to your local bass lake, take a few wide gap hooks, 5 to 7 inch plastic worms and have a blast fishing the wacky worm rig!
You’ll be glad you did!
