My Newfound Go-To Recipe For Success!

Recommended Posts

Recently while bass fishing with my cousin, he showed me this very simple, but very effective technique. We wacky rig a Jackall 5.8 inch Flick Shake worm, go to a shady area near the side of our small lake, drop it to around 10-15 feet, and slowly tug up in short bursts. Sometimes we let the baits "marinate" in Powerbait bass attractant overnight. This method has given us tons of nice largemouths, and more to come this fall! Anyone else use this method?

Havent tried the technique but it's always good to try some new stuff when the fishing is tough.  I always use heavy scent this time of year as well.  Some say it doesnt work...but I say it cant hurt when the bite is tough.

The bottle recommends spreading the attractant on a hard bait while you're fishing, replenishing every 10-20 casts. I have found that although this may help some, it is much more effective when used to marinate soft plastics the day/week before a trip.

Wacky worm but not Powerbait scent.

 

If it works, keep doing it.

 

Good information. Thanks for posting.

Actually, I use no weight or jig head. Just a larger octopus hook right through a flick shake. The bait sinks fairly slowly, but it sinks enough on its own. If I used a weight, I would use a very small split shot on the line directly above the hook.

While fishing a friend he turned me on to this little bait.  Jackall make a small jig head with a single wire weed guard to go with it.  Works great, and very weedless wacky rig.  Right now you could get hit almost every cast using this bait on the Alley in South Florida.  Want to catch 200 fish in a morning, The Alley with a Jackall Wackey Rig.

I have to ask-have you tried various other baits and techniques in the same location?  I'd be curious to know how much can be attributed to the bait and/or method and how much is it the location itself.

Yes, on average I will get about 1-3 decent bass (varies incredibly) using a variety of techniques. on days where nothing else seems to be working, this method produces.

Like a lot of anglers have said when the bite is slow or non existent a whacky rig always draws them out. This is one technique i will deff be trying this Spring. Loaded up on some Senkos this Winter.

That's what the worm is designed for. Thus why the egg sack is directly in the middle of it. They also sell a tungsten jig head to use with it.
