Any Rigs Besides Texas Rig?

Recommended Posts

I love fishing with plastic worms and crawdads, but I have really only tried Texas Rigs because basically that was all I have been taught. Mostly, I use a 4" berkley power worm with a 1/4 oz bullet weight. I was wondering if any of you fine fisherman have had any success on any other rigs.

Stick around and read, read, read......read the posts and read the articles....there's a TON of different ways to fish a worm....probably twice as many as I just thought of and listed

I've had really great results with a wacky rig and a shakey rig. Both are very easy to rig up and equally easy to use.

To start with a 1/4 oz weight with a 4" worm is heavy weight. Try using 1/8 and 3/16 oz weights and 5" to 7" worms.

Next add a 7mm to 8mm faceted tempered glass bead between the weight and hook, it adds sound when you shake it and color. Use painted weights.

Finesse C-rig or mojo riig and C-rigs all work good,

Finesse 4" to 6" worms are good on jigs; 1/8 oz dart heads, 3/16 oz shaky heads and wacky rigged jigs.

All the above with craw trailers.

That' is a short list that should keep you busy for awhile.

Use your imagination . You can make soft plastics do pretty much whatever you want them to do .

oh boy you're in for a treat.

 

Discovering new rigs is a lot of fun and really adds a lot of options to your presentations, allowing for that same lure to target fish at different depths, rates and actions.

 

Another that wasn't mentioned is a drop shot.

 

There are countless articles and videos available for all of the rigs mentioned, and most if not all of these have been discussed in multiple topics already on this forum. Use the search feature and start reading up.
