What Is Everyones Favorite Finesse Rig?

Recommended Posts

I would fish the flick shake rig about 2 hours, of most fishing trips, last year. I finally got comfortable catching fish on it. Its a very slow technique but will flat out catch them on a tough day. This year I have been trying to do the same with the Neko Rig. Its also a very slow presentation, with light line being used on both. Its been harder fishing the neko rig this year with all of the crazy weather we have had. Its hard to fish either of these techniques with the wind blowing 25-30 every outing. What is everyone else using on their finesse set ups, to catch bass on tough days?

Shakey head if their deeper the 5 feet, wacky rig if their shallower or I need to skip my bait.

well most of my ponds/lakes are shallower than 7 ft., i usaully fish a weightless trig (trickworm) or a wacky rig (senko,dinger). i love fishing worms so much,and i have found that they are so productive, i hardly ever pick of reaction baits.

I've been fishing a ton of finesse cranks this year, and doing very well. Lately it's been the Fat Mini GDS or whatever the heck the name is, in MS Shad.

Laugh all you want but mine has been the 1/16 oz jig on a little twist tail grub.

I've been working on dropshot fishing this year, trying to throw it in places where in years past I might have thrown a jig or a tx rigged plastic. Then, the last few weeks I'e had some modest success fishing shakey heads "bubba style" By this I mean I'm using the same shakey worms I'd use on spinning tackle, but I'm using 3/8 or 1/2 ounce shakey head jigs on a bait casting rig with 14 lb fluorocarbon line. I'm liking how in 10 to 20 feet of water how it gets to the bottom quicker. Anyway, that's the finesse approach I'm working on this summer.

Shaky Head, or wacky rigged worm. I like the shaky head because I know it remains effective on the bottom and also goes through weeds a little more. I like the wacky rig because it stays in the strike zone longer. It just depends on the fish I guess, I have thrown a wacky rig around a dock for 10 casts and not got anything then first cast with a shaky head and I catch a fish and vice versa.

Split shot rig with a small 5 inch curly tail worm is straight deadly.

Small finesse jig or shaky head with a 4.5-5.5" finesse worm would be the two of my all time favorites.

On a very windy day when the bite is tough, I go to a heavy weight drop-shot rig. I'll use a 1/2 to 3/4 oz weight with a 15lb flouro leader, tied to a 40lb braid mainline on a 7ft med/heavy baitcast setup. (My c-rig setup)

For baits, I like a cut-tailed RT thumper, RT baby craw, roboworms, and small flukes.
