If there’s 1 thing mistake that I see anglers make that can completely change their Ned Rig game its shaking the lure vs dragging the soft plastic worm. In this video we discuss soft plastic worm retrieves spring through summer and what works to catch bass.
There is only one lure you need to catch bass in spring and honestly the way it triggers fish it’s like cheating!!! The Ned Rig is one of the best fishing lures for a couple reasons – it catches small fish and giant bass but also any angler can fish it from a beginner to an expert angler. It’s a finesse style technique that catches all species of bass and especially in late spring fishing a Ned Rig is just like cheating because the fish can’t resist it! I rig my ned rig jig with a small soft plastic worm stickbait that I cut down – a Gambler Ace and it’s tough to beat a color like green pumpkin. Since the water was not super clear and we were fishing for smallmouth and largemouth bass I used some chartreuse dip on the tail as well.
I can honestly say the first 5 casts with my fishing rod this morning cost me $3000. I made a horrible mistake out fishing the lake after I caught a bass on a jig, I nearly broke down in tears. I guess this is why I should go bank fishing!!!! We try to run through some less talked about patterns for fall fishing and fall bass location as well as what fishing lures and soft plastic worms and baits are the best for catching more fish this time of year.
