Hey all,

 

I'm trying to put together a list of different ways to rig soft plastics. Pretty straightforward. I'm planning to try all these this summer, and maybe do a how-to on them. So far we've got:

  • Texas rig
  • Carolina rig
  • Wacky rig
  • Drop shot rig
  • Neko rig
  • Alabama rig
  • Weightless rig
  • Shaky head rig
  • General jig rigging (football, swim, bladed)
  • Ball head/underspin rig
  • Split shot rig

That's all I got so far. Let's hear some more, plus any you randomly come up with!

I wouldn't consider an A rig a soft plastic rig. I also wouldn't fish it in the summer time. And for jigs and

Shakey heads I woulnt call them rigs, they are more of just a 1 piece tool to fish you're bait.

You should also consider using the Rage Rig.

Two of my favorites missing - swing jig (Biffle hardhead - type) and mojo (for flukes, mostly -- I suppose it could be called texas with small cylinder weight, but I usually think of bullet weights for texas.)  And then there's variations on pegged texas, such as Florida.  What about jika, also?  And slider-head?

Weightless plastic with a nail weight in the tail is supposed to be productive, but I don't like the thought of a bass biting off the tail and having a nail stuck in it's mouth.

The nail weight rig is normally rigged in the worm head, not tail, the hook placed about 1" back of the nail weight wacky style. You cut about 1/4" off thecworm nose to make it flat and insert the nail weight, the hook I use is a weedless wacky Owner or Gsmakatsu size 1/0, the weight is 3/32 oz.

The slip shot rig or finesse C-rig using a cylinder mojo weight is missing and a go to rig when you need a few bass.

Brass & glass doddling rig, a T-rig with a faceted glass bead between the bullet weight and hook is my standard worm rig.

Punch rig is missing, need that for fishing heavy weed cover.

Ya rigging it right!

The nail in the tail offsets the weight of the hook causing the worm to fall flat (horizontal).

As for a nail in the bass's mouth I might loose 1-2 tails a year. I use a 1" paneling nail so it's highly unlikely to stick anything.

Storm used to make a magnum trick worm with a splitshot in the tail. Basically did the same thing as the nail.
