Shallow Water Worm Rig

June 15, 2014 | Categories: Fishing Tips

When bass and other fish hug the bank or shallow water, nothing beats small weedless hooks coupled with a floating plastic worm, a live nightcrawler or a small frog. Tie a #6 or #8 hook to the end of the line, add your lure or bait and crimp on just enough split shot to provide casting weight a foot or so in front. Flip the rig into the bank and edge it back.
