burner worm/speed worm

Recommended Posts

How do you guys fish a burner worm, or speed worm? I got a few packs laying around and wondering what the most effective way is too fish it.

Pitching to timber and grass lines has worked well for me. Also works good as a subtle topwater, spinnerbait or chatterbait trailer

These guys are pretty versatile, no real wrong way to throw them.  By far my most effective method is swimming them like a paddle tail with a 1/8 weight through grass, have done alright swimming them around laydowns as well.  I've had really good days fishing clear water grass beds letting the worm fall into the grass then ripping it out using jig heads.  At night dragging it like a conventional worm on a t-rig/c-rig is very effective, think it puts off a little more vibration compared to other soft plastics.  I've even had success using half of one as a chatterbait trailer.

 

 A lot of guys down here use them as topwaters, particularly the gambler burner worm, around pads and other topped off grass and do very well.  Personally never caught much doing this, but I've watched others crush them so it has to be user error.

Down here it's more about technique than it is about the worm.

 

Hook tail worms like Gambler's Burner, curl tail worms, & ribbon tail worms all work.

 

The technique simply requires the worm weighted or unweighted to be "burned" or speed reeled on the surface like a buzzbait.
