Neko Rig

The Neko rig is a unique rig and it’s becoming very popular among many anglers.  As you can see in the tank to the left, the hook is in the center of the bait and the weight is at the head of the bait.  In this case, it’s a screw that is screwed into the head of the worm.  Some anglers use small nails too.

Basically, you are going to be walking the head of your bait along the bottom.  It’s very effective for many of the bigger soft plastic baits such as large worms, wacky style worms, lizards and creature baits.  Anglers usually use this technique for bass.
