I know the amazing fisherman of bassresource.com have some great tips and tricks on how they use the trick worm.

List a few of the ways your rig/use trick worms to catch fish!

T/C rig, weightless, swim it weightless or w/ a weight, tried it wacky rigged with no luck so far. Finally, I love it on a shakey head!

4/0 Gamakatsu EWG super line hook, tied to a 2'-3' fluorocarbon leader connected to the main line with a good swivel. I rig the worm weedless and weight less, but insted of rigging it perfectly straight, I twist the worm 1/4 of the way around before I bring the hook point back up through and texpose it on the side of the worm. When I twitch my rod tip, the worm walks the dog just under the surface with an erratic darting action. Drives them nuts at times, they will come up and crush it, I like this better than a fluke. CAUTION.....if you don't use the swivel, doing this will twist your line so bad after just a few casts you will be cursing life.
I am not afraid to suck.

Tail weighted with a nail weight. Fished SLOW. It has a unique action, actually falling backwards if you give it slack.. Milked about a dozen fish off a spot once on a bluebird post front day where nothing else worked.

I use mine with a 1/32oz bullet Texas Rigged with a 3/0 EWG hook. A few tugs and let it drop. Too much weight, or too big of a hook kills the action.

In clear water during July & August I love a T-Rgged weightless w/a 3/0 EWG Trokar. Motor oil seems to be the killer color. I've caught some decent fish w/it on a shakey head too

I keep it real simple. 1/8 oz on a size 1 EWG gamigatzu. They either hit on the drop or fish it lazily on the bottom. Caught 15 today, using that technique. The fishing were on today. I left after 2hrs of fishing and they were still hitting.

Don't be afraid to use it as a trailer on a finesse jig, especially flat tailed worms like the old school Mann's Jelly Worm. Imagine a stand up skirted or a football jig with a 4" Roboworm tipped on the end of a jig - very tantalizing as it floats and sways in the water and the skirt flaring out......

Fished weightless it has a slow, tantalizing fall that the bass around me love during tough biting periods.

Like a mini c-rig on a spinning rod. You can use a split shot or some kind of really light weight pegged anywhere from like 12-18". I caught tons and tons of fish this summer using this technique. Days where it was like crazy hot out and you couldn't buy a bite this just killed them. It's super light also and will usually rest on top of submergent vegetation and you can slowly drag it and they come up and nail it or start running off with it. I forgot I like a flipping hook or something with out the 45 degree bend after the eye because that can kind of hang of grass and such.
