Rookie question

Recommended Posts

Probably silly question, but when using a finesse worm for bass, do you just go weightless? Are they meant to be somewhat on surface and slowly let sink and the reel slowly? Trying to determine if you use a little weight or none at all with say a 3 or 4” worm.

Depends on the tactic your using.

 

Light Ned Rigs use 1/20 oz to 1/5 oz mushroom-head jigs in front of the worm.

You could also rig short worms Neko style - Wacky but with a light 'nail' weight in one end (not both ends)

 

That's just a couple examples.

A finesse work can be fishes at any depth you want to fish it. You can fish it as a topwater or if it's heavily salted will sink. You can also add a split shot or Texas rig. The options are endless. I have caught a lot of big bass on just a small worm and splitshot

There is no "wrong" way.  There are different presentations for different conditions and types of plastic.  Not a silly question at all but also not a simple answer.

This can be the answer to 99% of the questions on here!

I’ll fish a 3”or 4” worm either weightless, t-rigged with a 1/16 oz weight, or on a split shot rig.

Start with this worm and fish it weightless.

For those that remember when I said the Senko's in the "old" packaging are like gold.....The old packaging is in this hammy commercial.  If you have them in these packages, save them for a special day or when you absolutely can't get bit.  Word!!

Were the senkos manufactured different back then?

Yamamoto is always looking for improvements to their plastic formulation.  The formula used on that era of baits was one of the best.  :wink1:
