Wacky Worm Rigging Question ?

Postby Robert11 » Sun Jun 23, 2013 2:45 am

Hi,

Regarding Wacky Worm rigging:

Do you folks find it necessary, or even a good idea, to use those "O' rings for the hook; the kind that they
show going around the worm ?

Or, a needless complication, and just hook the hook right thru the center of the worm ?

Any "meaningful "differences in hookups, in your experiences ?

Thanks,
Bob

O rings are cheaper than senkos. Senkos will fly off the hook much sooner without the o rings.

Yes, O-rings will allow you to keep your Senkos much longer.

use heat shrink cut into 1/4" sections...don't shrink it just leave as is , lasts way longer than O-rings and your hook orientation is perpendicular unlike the o-ring which is parallel.

I like using the o-rings. I use two and cross them then slip the hook under the X and this allows the hook point to sit perpendicular to the bait.

That's a great damn idea!
Cast baits, not doubts.

I fish a wacky rig a lot. I only use Yamamoto Senkos for that. Through experience I can say without an O ring you would b lucky to get 1 or 2 fish per bait. With an O ring, you might get 20. I get my Senko's pretty cheap or through trades, but if you are buying them at almost 7 bucks a bag of 10, they are expensive, you simply need to use an o ring to keep it cost effective.
