favorite worm style

Recommended Posts

Culprit Tassel Tail worms.  These worms caught me lots of fish Texas and Carolina Style, and while swimming the bait through suspended bass.   Rigs and weights varies depending on conditions.

I personally like the Zoom finnese worms on a very small jighead they can get a bite when its dead. As far as a ribbon tail I like culprit stuff blk/ silver, red shad and fire and ice texas rigged. And lets not forget the trusty trick worm a favorite for flipping docks usally on a jig head. Carolina Rig I prefer a creature bait.  But first and for most is a tube I catch more tube fish than anything else I slit the side of the tube that the hook is in and skin hook the other side. I got that off a show with Greg Hackney works awesome.  The strike king bleeding shad watermelon is unbeliveable.  Sorry for the book guys.

zoom was my first plastic worm lure. ;) Cheap and works

It doesnt have to cost a megabass or lucky craft in order to catch fish.

Old fishing techniques, combined with newer generation fishing techniques. Only equals more success.

My goto bait for the last couple of years has been a T-rigged Zoom Vibra-tail worm in either Junebug or Junebug Red.  I can fish them weightless also and either drag 'em or swim 'em.  Occasionally, if the bite is slow, I will dip the tail in Spike-it Chartruese.  Give 'em a try -- cheap (by comparison) and productive.

7" and 10" Berkley Power Worms. Usually with a small bullet weight, straight shank hook, texas rigged. Favorite color is electric grape.

My next favorite is a 5" Tiki Stick with 4/0 EWG hook, weightless, texas rigged. Favorite color is watermellon with red flake.

my favorite worm style is just T-Rigging pretty much any type of plastic (Lizard, Ribbontail, Tube, Beaver, etc) I use anything from 3/16 up to 1/2 oz bullet weights, sometimes black painted, sometimes unpainted. 4/0 Round Bend Hook. I have a much better hook up ratio on a round bend hook than on an EWG hook. I still do use the EWG on sweet beavers or tubes because they are bulky. As for the technique i use... i like to pitch out to cover, sometimes just past the cover. let it sink. tighten liine to check if it has been subtly picked up. then i just slowly drag the bait along the bottom back to the boat, giving it a small hop every foot or so. one thing to remember when doing this technique is ALWAYS watch your line.. i have had caught countless fish where on the fall you would just see the line "tick" a little bit and not feel a thing. also when dragging back to you the line shoudl be coming strait back at you... it it starts to come back at an angle different than it started a fish has picked it up and is swimming horizontally to you. set the hook. Good Luck!

Man, I got too many worms I like to fish.

I like the ZOOM Trick and Finesse worms as well as the NetBait Finesse worms on Texas rigs, Carolina rigs and on jigheads like the Screwed Up jighead or the Spot remover jighead.

For straight up Texas rigging in cover, I like the new ZOOM GTail and old Ditto Gator Tail.

Of course, I love Senkos.

And I have a ton of craw and creature baits too numerous to mention.

The two that I really like to use are a Yum Dinger t-rigged weightless with a 3/0 EWG hook, and a Zoom Magnum II t-rigged with a 1/4 oz tru tungsten weight.

I love worm fishing almost as much as jig fishing.  For the worm, texas rigged and sometimes rigged on a darter head.  Number one worm choice is a 5-inch Senko, followed by a 6-inch Berkeley Gulp turtleback worm, followed by a roboworm with a curly tail.  I will throw a worm anywhere at anytime and have caught fish on them at times when I shouldn't have.
