Worm Fishing Preference

Recommended Posts

When fishing in 3' to 5' of water what's your worm preference? Do you T-rig,C-rig or go weightless? What about a weighted hook rigged T style?

Maybe it doesn't help you, but all of the above.It really is going to depend on the available structure and cover.

I always like to throw weightless worms whenever I am fishing shallow water.  The bass seem to prefer a slow falling worm in most cases.

i agree with the other responses. I will use a wacky rigged senko or finesse worm. i will throw it weightless so it has a slow fall.

I use all 3 in that depth range.  Which one depends more on the wind, the bottom type, the activity level of the fish, and most importantly the available structure/cover.

Strange as it may sound, I get the most bites on a weightless wacky, ussually a senco, but Robo worms have produced really well too.

I think in shallow water a weightless worm seems more natural.

Which rate of fall produces best is determined by the bass not the angler

If all you throw is weightless how do you know if the bass wouldn't prefer weighted?

I catch more bass with either a 3/16 or 1/4 oz from bank shallow out to 20' :D

If I'm fishing a ribbon tail worm or a trick worm then I like to have some weight.  Catt's suggestion is dead on.

If I'm fishing senkos then I don't typically use weight.  Those beasts weight enough the way it is.

I always T-Rig, but that's more to do with my limitations as I've never really fished the C-Rig.

I keep a weighted Tx rig worm, a weighted wacky rigged finesse or Trick worm, and weightless wacky rigged finesse or Trick worm ready all the time and try all in the same areas. I have found that the weightless wacky rig will out-produce the other two consistantly even as deep as 20'. The longer the lure is suspended in the water column, the better the chance is of a bass taking it. Most fisherpersons don't have the patience to fish that slow, I do because I know how well it works.
