Soft Bait Fishing
There are two main forms of rigging soft baits while perfecting your bass fishing techniques. These two styles are primarily used during the summer for catching large mouth bass fishing. As the weather heats up, bass go deeper in the water to stay cooler. The Texas Rigging keeps your bullet shaped sinker near the head of the plastic worm, and keeps your fishing bait on the bottom of the lake. The Carolina Rigging is used with a swivel and a leader, which keeps your bullet weight higher up your fishing line, and allows your plastic worm to hover above the bottom.
The first style we will discuss is how to Texas rig using plastic worms. Professional Bass Anglers use the Texas rig, when hunting for monster large mouth bass, as they come across steep drops in the terrain, and when fishing heavy cover, and when fishing around clumps of grass and piles of brush and stumps. The Texas rig has less chance of getting hung up in this cover, and allows you to shake the plastic worm in place, allowing the bait to quiver in a wounded motion to interest the bass into striking an easy “meal”.
When using plastic worms with a Carolina rig. The heavier Tungsten sinker allows you to make longer casts and cover a wider range, as you drag the bass fishing baits along the bottom of the lake or pond. The more area covered gives you a better chance of snaring more bass in less time. In between the expanse of emptiness, as you come across sections of weeds, rocks, and stumps you can manipulate the Carolina rigging around these structures to agitate a bass to strike your fishing lure.
