Longer worm plastics are a great way to increase the action of your presentation and target larger bass. Depending on the length of your worm, your fishing techniques will vary.

6 to 7 Inch Worms

When using slightly larger worms, usually ranging from 6-7", we recommend using Texas rigs or even heavier ned rigs. The key is to keep these longer lures on the bottom and gently jigging them slightly above the bottom surface.

8 Inches and Above

When using worms in the 8" and above range, we highly recommend using the shaky head rig. This allows for the worm to shake across the bottom surface with the tail remaining slightly upwards. This presentation drives bass crazy and is a reliable way to get some bites.
