Texas Rigged Soft Plastic With A Twist
I know a lot of you are fishing the Texas Rig soft plastic and on 6/25/2010 I
tried something different to see if I could lure MR. Basshog into taking the bait a little faster.
As it turned out I was catching five times the amount of bass as the guy in the
front of the boat
I went to Enid Lake and arrived at the lake, and was in the water at
I started off throwing a Shaky Head rig on a spinning rod seeing most of the fish
I was seeing on the graph were close to the bottom in about 13 to 15 feet of water. I was using a Zoom 4 inch
June-bug worm with the tail dipped in Chartreuse.
I caught a lot of fish 12 inches to 15 inches and was still looking for MR.
At dark they seem to stop hitting the Shaky head and that is when I switched to
the Texas Rigged worm on my bait-caster.
The way you rig this is follow the picture and see if it does not improve the
amount of fish you catch.
I did prove this theory but the guy in the front of the boat was only using one
bead and I went to two beads thinking that the bass would hear the clacking noise and draw them in faster and it
1. Slid your weight up your line and I am using a non lead weight so I am keeping
up with going green.
2. Now slide the beads up the line, and I have found if you go to a craft shop you
can get a lot more beads in a bag than what you get at a fishing store.
3. I was pegging the bottom bead with a rubber T-Stop up off the hook. Slide the
T-Stop through the bottom bead and then cut off the two tails.
4. Attach your hook and soft plastic that you plan on using and the rest is
history on the amount of fish that you catch.
See if you do not skunk your partner and get him to start asking whey you are
catching more fish than he is.
Keep The Hooks Wet
