Texas Rigging Tips, Tricks, and Gear - Full Seminar

Learn the basics or try our advanced methods to get better hookup ratio, a better presentation, and fine tune your patterns, its all in this jam-packed video. The Texas Rig is the most universal rig in bass fishing so of course there are tricks to make it more effective! Whether you're fishing a drop shot, punching heavy cover, or somewhere in the middle, these tips will help you catch more bass. 

Matt uses a very simplified method of Texas rigging. He goes out of his way to stick with a wide gap hook for nearly all applications, only venturing between standard wire and superline (2x strong) wire. This allows his presentations to remain very consistent and saves a lot of baits. 

Tim prefers a more adaptive method, favoring different hook styles for different baits and presentations. The advantages are an increased hookup ratio and more fine-tuned method. Both bass fishing styles have merit so be sure to listen closely and decide which method will benefit you the most.
