Best Rigs for Catching Largemouth Bass
Shaky head jigs are known as great rigs for shaking baits along the bottom, however, you can use this rig to replace the Texas rig or the Florida rig. It’s an unbelievable way to rig a variety of soft plastics.
The wacky rig is so popular. For most anglers, it is their number one rig for catching largemouth bass. You can rig it wacky style weightless, on a finesse jig or on a drop shot rig and they all work great.
The drop shot rig is not as popular as it should be among largemouth bass anglers. You can use this rig to fish around all types of cover, in shallow water and in deeper water. You can rig so many different soft plastics on this rig.
Most anglers think of the Texas rig as the go to rig for using soft plastics, but the Florida rig is actually better. The Florida rig is the same thing with one modification. The weight will actually screw into the bait, which keeps the bait and the weight connected together. However, there are some baits that look great with the bait not connected, so the Texas rig then would be better. You can always peg the weight with the Texas rig too to get the same result as the Florida rig.
They may not be legal everywhere or popular everywhere, but it’s hard to deny them. This rig is probably the best big fish, schooling bait for fishing in deeper water.
The Carolina rig is still one of those awesome rigs that just keeps catching bass. Use it in deeper water and you have a super effective rig. In shallow water, it’s not as good, but still can be productive depending how you want to use it.
The Neko rig is so unique. Many anglers still haven’t heard of it, but it’s an awesome rig. You have to take a look at how it looks under water to appreciate what this rig can do.
Underspins are great for covering water with curly tail grubs, swimming worms, curly tail worms or minnow baits. Retrieve them slow and steady and you’ll catch some bass.
The scrounger jighead is amazing and a lot of anglers still don’t know about it. This jighead turns many baits into amazing swimbaits and you can fish shallow water very effectively with them.
