Beyond the Bait: The No-Fail Neko Rig

They may not imitate any type of forage closely, but stick-style worm baits are proven bass catchers. There is just something about their profile and wiggly, lifelike action in the water that the fish can't resist. Several rigging techniques have been developed to play up this action, and the Neko rig is one that's especially effective at finessing bass from both shallow and deep water.

Beyond the Bait: Sling a Blade for Bass

When bass move offshore after the spawn and as the water temperature rises, they go deep or suspend along humps or other bottom contours. They often target schools of baitfish such as shad. In this situation, one lure that excels at both matching the forage and reaching the bass is the blade bait.
