Fishing BIG worms is one of the best parts of Summer bass fishing! There are so many different worms and so many ways to rig them, its difficult to know which way is best. Today's video covers the 5 most effective ways to fish big worms and includes lure recommendations to some of our favorites!
When the water gets warm its time to slow down and dredge bottom for the truly GIANT BASS. Tim loves slinging monster soft plastic worms this time of year. Depending on conditions he can be found Carolina Rigging a big curly tail worm, Wacky Rigging a giant stick bait, or shaking a big straight tail worm. How do you know which one to throw? Tim is here to explain the advantages of each.
