What's Your Favorite Big Worm And How Do You Rig It?

Recommended Posts

What's your favorite big worm and how do you rig it? What hook and weight do you use? Looking for ideas for pulling up some hawgs this summer dragging 10 inch worms on C rig or T rigs.

The best time to fish giant worms 10" + is pre-post spawn and summer nights.

Berkeley a Havoc 10" worm is new and becoming very popular, the original 10" Power worm is still king of the hill in sakes.

Fish a 10" worm like you fish a 7" worm, 316-1/4 oz sliding bulletvweight Texas rigged.

If you want to get get serious then look at hand pours like Uptom's Customs 9" & 13" dragon tails or 16" straight tail. I fish these using 4/0 and 5/0 straight shank Gamastsu #484 or Owner #5103 hooks, 1/4 oz painted bullet weight with a glass bead ( brass& glass ).

Netbait cmac with a 4/0 hook and a 1/4-3/8 oz bullet weight. Just drag it along the bottom.

my favorite is the zoom old monster. There are 3 ways I rig it. I will always throw it either weightless, t rigged on a 3/16 ounce tungsten weight pegged with a bobber stop, or on a 3/8 ounce swinging football head jig. 

 

I do however want to start experimenting with the 10 inch power worm, as well as the culprit 10 inch worm. 

 

btw I throw all my big worms on either a 4/0 or 5/0 hook, I like the trokar extra wide gaps.

I like the Rage Anaconda and Recon Worms best, but I also like Old Monsters, Berkley 10" Power Worms, and the 10" Lake Fork Worm. Most 10" worms need at least a 5/0 EWG hook or even a 7/0. I generally use a 1/4 ounce weight with them unless I'm Carolina Rigging them or trying to get through thick vegetation.

The Zoom Ol monster and gambler 13" ribbontail. I try to use the lightest weight that I can usually no heavier than 1/4 and either hop it or drag it along the bottom. Caught my first big worm fish of the season on Monday so I guess summer is officially here!

X2. Although I've never tried the Rage Anaconda, but have had great luck on the Rage Recon Worm.

I like an Uptons Dragontail on a swinging jighead of some kind- either with an offset shank or an EWG depending on cover.

I haven't gotten a chance to use them yet, but I picked up a couple packs of the tomahawk by Missile baits, I'm pretty excited about them

Culprit Fat Max and Culprit Original 10" on a Confidence Baits Draggin' Head. I like that direct contact to the presentation and rigged this way I do not accumulate line twist over the course of a day.

Zoom Ol Monster, Missile Tomahawk, and Berkley Power worms for curly tails.  Manns Jelly Worms for straight tail big worms.  I always fish them on a swinghead.

I like the Uptons a lot.  Before i discovered those it was the usual suspects, 10" Ole Monster, 10" Rage Anaconda, 10" Rage Thumper, 10" Power worm and Zoom Magnum Trickworm.  I fish them on a jighead the most but will also t-rig and c-rig big worms.
