Today we're looking at a giant senko - style stick bait, several straight tail worms, and two giant curly tail worms. Have you been rigging and fishing your plastic worms correctly? We're about to find out!
Whether you prefer a Carolina Rig, a Texas Rig, a Shaky Head, or even an oversized wacky rig, the plastic worm has a place in every serious bass angler's summertime arsenal. The purpose of today's video is to see how these 5 popular plastic worms compare to one another. We all have our favorite baits but you may be surprised to find that your worm of choice moves completely differently than you expect. By going underwater we discover new baits, new retrieves, and even new rigging methods.
Its amazing how much you learn in a few short minutes below the surface! Today we found out that we'd been rigging curly tail worms incorrectly our entire lives. Who knew that turning the worm 90 degrees would completely change the presentation? Amazing! Below is a breakdown of the worms we used, the heads, rods and reel recommendations, and more.
