Great video Glenn, thanks for sharing!

 

 

Question to all those who have fished the ned rig using senkos and what not and using the TRD: how has the move to the Z-Man lures affected your success?

The Zman products have more subtle movements. I'm not saying that they catch a ton of fish over other senko style baits, but the reason I spend my money on them is the fact that I can use 1 TRD for 100 fish compared to 5-10 maybe on any other senko style plastic.

 You are correct, it has taken the fishing world by storm.  It's a cool and fun little rig.  Also works for stocked trout.   :)

I am quite enamored with the ned rig and finesse fishing, as I prefer to catch quantities instead of drooling for the hawgs. I *so* want to fish it hook-exposed but I can't due to the cover in my lakes. I caught some bass (and even bream) on the Zman setup with Shrrom jig and TRD with exposed hook but it was hanging up a lot and I have since tried to use weedless hooks with the metal thingy that goes over the hook point. I have never done well in my lakes with that because it attracts moss, grass, algae. Now, I am trying Texas rig, using a "slider" type jig head and it seems to work fine but, I am missing fish. The hook is not coming out well enough and I hate to miss fish! But, it could be bream or jackfish (pickerel), too. I really am in a quest for a totally weedless ned rig to where I can get good hookups.

 

I would love to find some bass in an area I could use ned rig with exposed hook!

I see that you're using the 1/10oz version Shroomz head....is that the size you'd recommend for a nice slow fall?

Yes, Glenn did an excellent job and I can't wait to see more from him. He certainly made me a believer with his simple approach and detailed explanation about the components and why they do what they do so well. I've seen some folks mention they are going to piece together their own ned rig but I'm following his advice and getting exactly what he suggested. It sounds like an easy way for me to slowly get into finesse fishing. It's not something I do now or have enjoyed in the past but this could change my mind. I will try it.

 

My question is with the heads being so light anyway, will the weights make that much of a difference. Is there a "go to" weight that will get it done without worrying about changing for this or that...I just want to tie one on and experiment with the TRD colors only and not worry so much about weight...

I have been doing very well so far this year trying it, been using 3/32oz mushroom heads.

 

My only issue is the exposed hook, still trying to figure out a weedguard which doesn't kill the action.

I have been using the 1/16 (i think) in green pumpkin. The zman brand. I have the 1/6 oz but it is too heavy. I got mine from bass pro and it was the lightest and heaviest weights available that I chose. The lighter the better after using them for a while. It has been THE confidence bait for me since getting back into fishing.

I was wondering the same thing...

 

While you will find some variation among regular Ned Rig users depending upon their location and water being fished, I think you'll find most guys would pin the 1/16-oz. head as the standard. If you only go with one, choose it. Keep in mind the original concept is based upon finding bass in shallow water (usually 8' - 10' or less) year round. The 1/10-oz or 3/32-oz (depending upon brand) is like a rock to most users except under very windy conditions, when fishing deeper than 15' (a rarity except in some very clear Ozark waters), or when straight swimming a grub. We own them "just in case," but rarely ever go that heavy. Much more likely to throw a 1/32-oz before we'd throw a 3/32-oz. in most instances. Remember, "no feel" - the lightest you can get by with is best in nearly all instances.

Excellent advice, thanks T9. Looks like I'll start out learning/using the 1/16oz

I use the 1/16oz and 3/32oz almost 100% of the time. Occasionally I'll fish water in the 15-25' range when I'll go to the 1/8oz but even then I'll try the lighter head first if the wind isn't bad. The Ned Rig accounts for a lot of fish for me each year, especially smallmouth.

Great video, Glen.  I'll have to give the Ned Rig a try.  Thanks for sharing & having the best bass fishing site on the web.

If you want a really slow fall, then use the 1/15oz head.  However it's not about what I want, it's what the fish want. And on the day we were shooting, the fish wanted a faster fall. So I used the 1/10th oz.  Note, too, that it was windy and I was fishing in 17' of water.  Those conditions necessitate a heavier jighead.

 

The jighead also comes in a 1/6th oz size for a fall faster than the 1/10th oz head.

 

That said, that's still a very light weight, so everything i said in the video still applies.

 

Hope that helps!

Glenn
