Ned Rig Video

Recommended Posts

This video does a great job illustrating why the Elaztec plastics, light line/jighead, and a small hook are so crucial in getting the most out of the Ned Rig. It also really shows how this bait that looks like it doesn't do anything, actually moves around quite a bit and does an excellent job imitating a small minnow foraging in the rocks or a craw scuttling along the bottom.

Thanks for posting this video which covers the basics of the Ned rig.

 

I'll be trying it with Elaztech plastics this season.

So , the Elaztec is a  lot lighter than half a Senko ?

It's made of a much more buoyant material than a regular senko mainly but yes it is also lighter.

It's also softer and that allows it to have more action

And you can catch 20+ fish per half a bait instead of 1-2 on a whole Senko.

I wouldn't compare it to a Senko.  It's shorter and has a different action.  Can't wait to slay the smallies on these as soon as the weather warms up!

I've used Z Man products in the past, Love the baits. Only problem is if you use a screw on type jig. Trying to get the bait to screw down was a pain for me. But then again probably just me.

Try the new Zman T.R.D. it is made with a little softer plastic than other Zman products and it screws right on without a problem.

There is a great video in one of the Ned rig threads that goes into a lot of detail on how to rig and fish the Ned.  I will try to find the video and link it.   Hopefully someone else knows right where it is at and can help out.

 

 

The video is about 10-15 posts into the thread

What they left out of the video was how they caught 2 high school swimmers practicing for an upcoming meet as well as an old lady doing the backstroke...

Not exactly - Ned now has 6 basic retrieves he uses (used to be 5 until this past year). On any given day, he and or his partners will rotate through them all trying to figure out which one is best for the conditions.

 

Here are the six retrieves that Midwest Finesse anglers use:

 

(1) swim, glide, and shake;

(2) hop-and-bounce;

(3) drag-and-deadstick;

(4) straight swim;

(5) drag and incessant shake;

(6) strolling

If you do a search it is pretty easy to come up with more info on this. I personally use 5 different ones that are a variation on his original set. He's modified his slightly over the years.

My wife also has her own technique.  She had a bit of weeds on her Ned so she had about 4' of line out and started jerking it back and forth to rip the weeds off (so she didn't have to get her hands dirty).  I kid you not!  A school of 3 smallmouth came up after it and attacked it.  I think the best thing about the Ned rig is that anyone can use it.  It is great for beginners because it doesn't involve a special shake or speed.  AND... it does NOT just catch small fish!
