Rehooking YUM Dingers on pointed end

Recommended Posts

This is going to sound stupid,but has any anyone had any luck using the ponted end of the 7" YUm Dingers. This babies ain't cheap and I'm trying to reuse them after the frt end is torn up. Sometimes I bite off a half inch or so,but then It really gets into the thick area. Any help appreciated. I'm using a 5/0 Gamy round bend. Thanks Crowcommander

sure they work just find, you can put a hook anywhere in those style worms and catch fish. I find when you rig it backwards it twitches more violently and moves faster.

Fishing the wave worms I usually start out with it rigged normally, then backwards, then wacky once the sides are suitably ripped up.

Thanks for all the input folks,it seems that this big 7" pushes too much water to be fished "wacky" style. Its about like throwing a baby water moccasin snake when it hits the water. I may try cutting the pointy end off and burning it on the worn out end and trying that. I keep the old ones in my "injured reserve bag". Crowcommander

Being the cheapo I am, I use these type baits as follows:

Catch as many as I can T-rigged weightless. When nose gets torn up,

Re-hook 180 deg. if bait not too bad or bite off 1/4" and start from scratch. If that doesn't work, I turn the bait around and hook it thu the arse as you brought up. And then when you think the bait is ready to be tossed, Rig it wacky style. :D
