Senko worms have taken over fishing by storm in recent years. Such a simple bait can subtly imitate bass forage and produce both quantity and quality catches. The latest craze in senko and artificial worm fishing is the wacky rig – hooking the senko/worm through the middle which brings a new action to the lure. Every movement of the rod produces a twitch in the worm that is irresistible to bass, which often strike after the twitch action and during the period in which the lure is making its fall back downward.
Anglers grew frustrated fishing the wacky rig, as each catch or snag typically tore the senko, rendering it lost or unusable after each fish or hangup. Wacky Rings have solved that problem. By hooking through a resilient o-ring instead of the lure itself, a single senko worm can be fished all day without the fear of tearing the lure or losing it to a snag under a dock or in a brush pile.
Wacky Rings often pay for themselves on the first day out fishing with them. Bring one pack of worms down to the water instead of several. Wacky rigged senkos/worms using a wacky ring can be fearlessly skipped under docks and other snaggy areas with confidence. Wacky Rings are made of a super resilient rubber compound, outperforming and outlasting the flimsier silicone/hardware-store o-rings that are often sold by other suppliers.
Contains 100 Wacky Rings for 4&5″ Senkos. Available in several colors.
How to install Wacky Rings with a Wacky Tool
Insert your worm/senko into the open end of The Wacky Tool (or other hollow tube such as the barrel from a marker/pen).
Slide a Wacky Ring over The Wacky Tool toward the open end.
Slip the Wacky Ring off the end of the tool and onto the center of the worm/senko.
Slip a hook between the Wacky Ring and worm. Shown with a Harmony Fishing Wacky Weedless WG Hook (not included).
Optional Rigging Tip:
Install two Wacky Rings in an “X” shape and slip your hook through the “X” to rig the hook perpendicular to the worm rather than parallel.
3x Stronger Than Other O-Rings
Wacky Rings are over 3x stronger than standard silicone/hardware store o-rings sold by other vendors. One pack of 100 Wacky Rings will outlast a 300 pack of silicone o-rings/bands. If you want to get the maximum amount of life from your soft plastic baits, trust Wacky Rings to hold up to the demand of fishing heavy cover as well as dozens and dozens of fish catches per worm.
Designed for a snug fit on 4-5″ senkos and similar diameter worms
The 4-5″ size Wacky Rings have an inside diameter of about 1/4″. This size is ideal for 4 to 5″ Senkos and other worms/soft-stickbaits with similar diameters (3/8″ to under 1/2″ worm diameter). This creates a snug fit between the slightly elastic Wacky Ring and compressible soft plastic bait, preventing your worm from slipping out of the Wacky Ring if a fish takes the worm by one of the ends.
Perfect for fishing the Neko Rig!
Wacky Rings are ideal for rigging both Wacky and Neko Rigs. For the Neko Rig, simply install the Wacky Ring closer to the head of the worm (about 1/3 of the worm length from the head is normally ideal) and insert a Tungsten Nail Weight into the worm’s head. Shown with Harmony Wacky Weedless WG Hook and Harmony Wacky Skirt (not included).
“When all else fails, throw the Wacky Rig!”
The slow, subtle fall of a Wacky Rigged worm is irresistible to bass, who are opportunistic feeders. When other fishing techniques aren’t working, a Wacky Rigged senko or worm can often be the key to unlocking the bite, regardless of time of year.
Simply cast the Wacky Rig toward the edges or holes in grass, weeds, or lilypads; skip it under docks or up against dock pilings; or near any other pieces of cover such as laydown trees, rocks, swim platforms, etc. Since you’re fishing with a Wacky Ring, you can cast into these heavy cover areas without worrying about your soft plastic tearing off easily.
Allow the worm to fall to the bottom, then lift/hop the worm and allow it to fall again. Keep an eye on your line on as the worm is initially sinking and after each hop, as bass often take the Wacky Rig on the fall.
Wacky Rings allow you to fearlessly cast, pitch, or skip your Wacky Rigged Worm into any cover without fear of tearing your worm!
Laydowns, Shallow Cover, and Grass/Lily Pad Edges
Pitch the Wacky Rig into shallow cover such as laydown trees, stumps, and weed or lilypad edges. Rigged with a Wacky Ring, your worm won’t tear when pulling through these areas of cover that bass are frequently found.
Rip-Rap Banks, Points, and Shallow Flats
Hop the Wacky Rig along rip-rap banks and other rocky areas. Slowly and methodically fish points and flats, without worrying about your worm tearing when you come across pieces of cover.
Dock Pilings, Seawalls, Bulkheads, and Other Hard Cover
Skip your Wacky Worm/Senko under docks where bass seek shade during hot, sunny days. Worry less about what sort of snaggy cover hides underneath, and more about accessing these fish that other anglers don’t cast at for fear of losing their lure.
Flip senkos under docks and into cover without fear of tearing/losing baits. Catch tons of fish on one senko bait, stop wasting your money losing bait every fish. Wacky Rings are ideal for fishing Wacky Style or the Neko Rig.
Superior to the cheaper silicone hardware store o-rings sold by other companies. Wacky Rings are tougher and less flimsy, so your bait stays rigged tightly all day. In testing, Wacky Rings are over 3x stronger than silicone o-rings sold by other bass fish
Using a Wacky Ring on your soft plastic worm allows you to fish the same lure all day without the bait tearing after each bite or after casting under a dock or into thick cover.
Contains 100 Wacky Rings for 4&5″ Senkos. Wacky Rings in the 4-5” size have an inside diameter of 1/4” when not stretched. This size is compatible with 4 to 5 inch senko / soft stick-bait style worms such as the Yamamoto Senko, Yum Dinger, Strike King Och
