Which plastic worms look the Best? Let's head underwater and find out! We've rigged some of the most popular dropshot worms on a nose hook and put them to the test. How does your favorite worm stack up? Does it move the way you think it does and are you working it the way you should?
Underwater footage gives us a unique look at lure action. Every time we do this style video we discover baits work differently than expected. In this case we discovered that not all plastic worms are created equal. Some of these worms sink quickly while others drift to the bottom. Some works looked best with a subtle shake, others looked best with an aggressive hop.
Learning these nuances will make a huge difference in your daily fishing! As it turns out, we weren't using one of our favorite worms to its fullest potential. We need to begin working it with a more aggressive hop to get the best action. Also, we identified two more worms that are going to get fished a lot more often! What did you learn? Let us know in the comments.
Below is a breakdown of the worms used (In order of appearance) as well as some of our favorite dropshot gear recommendations. The worm colors shown in the video were selected for their high visibility. We will include actual color recommendations for each worm as well.
