Floating Worms


Fishing Tackle | Soft Baits | Worms


Soft plastic floating worms are very popular worms among bass anglers, although, you can catch other fish besides bass such as trout, walleye and even northern pike.  One of the big advantages to most floating worms is that the bait will sit up off the bottom when working it along the bottom.  These worms are effective shallow, deep, around cover and in open water.


Tackle Recommendations
