Summer Worm Fishing - Tricks To Catch Bigger Bass

Summer has arrived and its time to throw the plastic worm! So many anglers overlook the dog days of Summer but you can catch more bass in one day in the heat than you can any other day of the year! By understanding how, where, and when to switch to a worm, you'll be setting yourself up for success all Summer long.

When Tim picks up the worm he targets deeper rock. There are plenty of bass to be found in the grass but those fish are often catchable on reaction baits. When you focus on rock, you'll discover a whole new class of fish that often won't eat anything else.

In this video Tim gives some great tips for budget anglers and seasoned pros, alike. Regarding sensitivity - Purchase the most sensitive rod that your budget will allow! Sensitivity is EVERYTHING when fishing a worm. If budget is a concern, two additional tips are to purchase a longer rod so you can visibly see deflection instead of relying solely on sensitivity to detect a bite. Also, spooling up with braided line (and leader) will increase your sensitivity drastically compared to fishing with fluorocarbon.

Below is a breakdown of the baits and gear Tim discussed in the video. We've separated out his favorite worms by style, given color recommendations, and included the rods he recommends from ultra-sensitive to budget-friendly.

Easy Texas Rig Tricks: Best Worms and Creature Baits

An in-depth look at Texas rig fishing for bass. Tim covers which baits catch the most fish, how to rig the bait, when to peg your weight, and which hooks work best. Whether you're fishing a senko from shore on a small pond, our punching grass on a huge lake, the Texas rig is a great option to catch more bass.

There are 4 key Texas rigging styles that a well-rounded angler should understand how to use. They are Weightless Texas rigging (typically stick baits, flukes, etc...), Texas rig worms (curly tails and speed worms), Texas rigged creature baits (beavers, brush hogs, man bear pigs, etc), and punching heavy cover (heavy tungsten and a creature bait). Mastering all 4 methods will open a lot of doors for you as an angler.

Don't let the broadness of the category scare you away. A simple 3/16 ounce free floating weight, a small hook, and a little worm or creature will catch a ton of bass under nearly any conditions. After you get comfortable with that setup you can begin branching out and trying the other styles. Below is a breakdown of Tim's favorite baits and equipment for the technique.
