Wacky rigging is a deadly way to catch fish, here’s a bunch of ways to rig it. Enter wacky rigging: a simple finesse rig that causes both sides of the worm to gently flutter. It’s fished on three primary set ups.
1. Weightless rigging is deadly on shallow spooky fish. Select an exposed or weed guard hook depending on the amount of cover. Then, add a tungsten ring weight if you need a little more depth or casting accuracy.
2. Drop shotting excels when fish are set up deeper. Tungsten dropper weights quickly get the worm to the bottom and maintain its position in the strike zone. This method is particularly effective when fishing vertically over a school of deep bass.
3. Rigged on a jig is the most versatile, allowing you to quickly adjust depth, retrieve speeds, and actions. Simple weed guard jigs fish well around cover and endless weighting accessories further customize worm actions.
