Wacky Rigs And O Rings

Recommended Posts

I was wondering how many of you use a wacky rigging tool with O rings
for wacky worm fishing? I have looked at a couple at TW and am curious
as to wheather they preform as advertised and are they worth the
investment. I am new to this type of presentation, but would like to get
started. All opinions welcome pro or con.

I have been using the o ring for a couple of years on my wacky rigs--have not noticed any decrease in hookups since switching to the o ring--only thing I have noticed is my worms do not rip as easy and they last a lot longer and that is a good thing! :grin:

Get it straight from the inventor:

They work Great.  Here's a little tip:

 

Us two to make an "x" and you can have a perpendicular hook.

I do not, but I have used shrink wrap tubing.

 

Mostly I just use the "naked" worm.

I have the Wacky Saddle kit and I really like it. It also keeps the hook perpendicular to the worm.

Nice idea! Have you noticed the hooksets are easier like this?

I fish a weightless wacky rig all the time, its my most productive and favorite way to fish.I have been using the o rings for years now and would never go back to rigging them thru the plastic.

3/8 inch shrink wrap tubeing.

 

Less expensive and works great.

Honestly, like much of fishing, it's a Jedi mind trick.  I think the hook stays cleaner in weeds, and like it upright for the hookset.  Reality, it's probably all in my head.  I have confidence in this rig.

X2 believe it. I've used both and the shrink wrap is MUCH better, imo.

Been useing the O rings for a while now, wouldnt do it any other way.

 

If you want too, and don't have the "Wacky Tool" just use the lower end of an old ball point pen

Great advice here. I had used a pen last year before finally deciding to buy a wacky rigging tool and honestly don't notice a difference between the efficiency of the pen and the actual tool. The tools are cheap but an old pen is cheaper and works just as well.

I have a couple I got through MTB. Didn't use them because the line holes were powder coated and I was too lazy to chip it away until after bass closed up in November. Looks interesting and I'll give them a shot this year though I imagine I'll just stick with o-rings.

I've always used a snap ring instead of the o-ring. I had some large ones laying around (fits senko type baits perfectly) and thought it might work and now that's all I use.

could someone explain how to rig the shrink tube method

 

Here you go.  If you do a little googling, you can find CLEAR shrink wrap.

The Waky Saddle kit is the next generation o-ring technique for rigging Senkos and plastic worms for the serious angler. If you have not tried it yet, you should!

Thank you so much, see i didnt realize the hook was actually going through the worm to...I couldnt find a picture of it, once again thank you.

Really looking forward to trying wacky rig this year...I got an unlimited amount of black an clear shrink tube from work...hahaha!

Now in the pic I see the tubing is not in the center of the worm, Is this preference or can it be placed anywhere? Sorry if this is not the right place but...How, when, and where do you typically wacky rig? Oh an what size hook are you guys using.

Sorry if these are dumb questions, its my second season of fishing an i love it. Just trying to learn as I havent used anything other than Texas Senko.
