Underwater Footage of 9 NEW Ned Rig Baits | Which Ones Work The Best?

With all these new NED baits, which ones actually catch fish? There are so many new worms, creatures, and craws its hard to keep up! Today we're taking 9 of the most unique NED RIG baits underwater to see how they compare. Let's look at their actions and profiles so you can decide which ned rig worms you should be using on your next bass fishing trip!

Ned Rig baits were the talk of ICAST this year. Every company introduced a Ned Worm, some introduced entire lines of Ned products. So how do you know which are actually worth your time? These 9 offerings looked the best "on the shelf" to us. We always like to show the bass something different and each of these offerings had a unique feature. After gathering underwater footage of how they moved, we definitely found some favorites.

Which are your favorites? Do you like that traditional Ned profile with minimal action? Do you like a lot of movement? Do the craw and creature profiles seem like a solid option for your bass? There is so much information to be gained with just a few minutes spent underwater. Below you'll find links to all the baits (in order of appearance) as well as color recommendations, rod and reel recommendations, and more.

Underwater Bass Footage with CRAZY New Fluke Rigging Trick!

Don't keep fishing your flukes the same old way! Today we're showing you underwater footage of new and exciting ways to rig a fluke for bass fishing! Are your clear water fish line shy? Are they in deep water? Do you prefer a magnum fluke? We've got a method to rig a soft jerkbait that will help you catch more bass today! Matt is showing us rigging, different sink rates, hook styles and more, in today's in-depth look at Fall fluke fishing for bass.

Matt begins with basic texas-rigging of an unweighted Zoom Super Fluke. From there he explains sink rates between a Fluke, Shiver Glide, Bass Assassin, and Caffeine Shad. He re-introduces the nose rig method of finesse fishing a fluke then wraps it up with an all-new rigging that combines a swinging hook with a nose weight to fool deep water bass. If the explanations aren't enough we back it up with underwater bass fishing footage to show how the lures move underwater and how the bass react to them. No matter how you rig it or where you fish, there is information in this video that will help you catch more soft jerkbait fish.

Fluke fishing (soft jerkbait fishing) is one of the most exciting ways to catch Fall bass. As they move into the shallows you can effectively target bass that are blowing up on bait but also those that hang below and refuse to rise to the surface. With the addition of the weighted nose rig, you can now effectively reach deep water bass that are ambushing baitfish as well. The fluke is an incredibly versatile tool that should be in every bass angler's box. If you haven't been using it effectively, you're not alone. Many bass fisherman overlook the soft jerkbait for Fall bass, but now you have the tools you'll need to put it to work this Fall.

Below is a breakdown of the baits and equipment that were discussed in this video as well as rod and reel recommendations for soft jerkbaits.

Fishing a Tiny Creek With Crystal Clear Water For Big Fish!

This tiny creek has crystal clear water and there are so many big fish just swimming around! We never would have believed a creek this small could have so many quality fish if we didn't see it for ourselves. Today we're exploring a hidden creek that everyone overlooks in search of big Smallmouth Bass. Its an adventure full of big fish, shallow water, thick brush, and a whole lot of fun!

While kayaking a little creek in a farmer's field isn't everyone's idea of fun, it brought us back to our roots. Its important to take a trip or two every year that refocuses you on why you love fishing so much. We all grew up stream fishing so this drift reconnected each of us with our love of fishing. It certainly helped that there were big bass around every corner!

At the start, the plan was to explore this untouched section of creek from the kayaks. We weren't sure we could get them down stream and as it turns out, we got stuck a few times. We knew there were quality fish in the deeper sections but weren't sure how to catch them. With 3 kayaks, we were able to try a variety of lures and to our amazement, all of them worked!

Below is a breakdown of the baits we used to fool these bass. Fall bass fishing is incredible on big lakes and tiny creeks so don't be afraid to get out there and catch some fish this Fall!

How To Catch More Bass With Spoons - Fall Bass Fishing

Ready to catch more bass this Fall? The spoon briefly regained popularity when the magnum flutter spoon was introduced but as a whole, its an overlooked tool for Fall bass fishing. Today Matt and Tim sit down together and teach us everything we need to know about fishing a spoon. Tim takes an in depth look at flutter spoons while Matt focuses his attention on jigging spoons.

The biggest misconception about flutter spoons is they need to be fished deep. We've seen great results in 2-6 feet of water around dock pilings in the Fall. Don't be fooled into believing this awesome fish catcher won't work for you! Jigging spoons on the other hand require quite a bit of depth. Most of the bites while fishing vertically come between 20 and 60 feet of water.

There are a handful of tricks that will improve your time fishing spoons. For flutter spoons, Tim recommends adding a swivel to the head of the bait as well as a stinger hook on the line above the lure. For jigging spoons Matt also recommends a swivel but instead of a stinger, he recommends a feathered treble hook for converting wary fish.

Below is a breakdown of the gear the guys discussed and used in the video. We've broken it up by category to simplify it for you.
