  • Should you use a weight when you wacky rig?

    Posted on March 9, 2011 by admin

    One of the most common questions that we are asked about wacky riggin' one of our trick worms is if a worm weight should be used. The short answer is...maybe.  A weightless rig  certainly drops slower than a weighted rig. Since the trick worm is slower to sink, the bait will potentially stay in the strike zone longer. This weightless rigging produced the world record spotted bass in California. The potential drawback is that due to the limited weight of the rig, casting (especially in higher wind conditions) can be challenging.  This can certainly be cured with using a worm weight. What's the drawbacks of using a weight? First, if the weight is not pegged (held stationary) the weight will slide up and down the line and not be of much help in casting. Also, with a weight, the trick worm will sink quicker and move through the strike zone that much quicker. With a pegged worm (like a screw-in weight), the problem with the weight sliding can be eliminated. However, the problem with the quick sinking can not be fully overcome (unless you use a weight that is not very heavy). In our opinion, the additional distance realized with the weight isn't worth the loss of additional time that the weightless trick worm will give you in the strike zone.

    The Power Pole Citrus Slam (part of the Bassmaster Elite Series) will visit the "Bass Capital of the World" (home of Bass Capital Outfitters LLC, makers of Furry Fish Baits) on March 17th-20th.  The BassMaster Elite series is a qualifying event for the Bassmaster Classic. Four-time Bassmaster Classic champion Rick Clunn and three-time champion Kevin VanDam will be fishing the tournament. Also, as is to be expected, our own Terry Scroggins will be fishing the tournament (since he's from here). As is traditional, ESPN will air the tournament. The launch is scheduled from the Palatka city dock at 7:30AM with weigh-in scheduled at 4PM. There was a lot of activity at the city dock when I was there yesterday. Everyone is excited and can't wait to get the tournament going!
