Texas rig - naked jig vs hook with pegged sinker

Recommended Posts

let's say you were inclined to fish a texas rigged plastic with a pegged weight. what are the pros/cons of just using a hook with a pegged weight, vs a naked jig head?

T-rig can be weedless, jig head hooks are generally exposed.

I think I understand your question . I dont think there is anything as weedless as the Texas rig

admission: i fish with a snap so pegging a weight on an offset shank hook becomes a little more complex than it needs to be. i know, tie direct. but in lieu of that, i was wondering if you could just achieve the same effect -- a fixed weight to which the worm is attached -- by just fishing a worm on a jig head, minus the skirt.

No, this changes the dynamics and compromises the action or subtleties of the presentation.

The closest you can get would be a slider head, that would be the only way if you absolutely have to use a snap.

I've never used a sliding weight ahead of my bait... there are many jigheads that can fish the hook point protected (most shakey head jigs) and a weighted swimbait hook will accomplish the same thing.
