Texas Rig / Florida Rig

The Texas Rig is very popular among largemouth bass anglers.  This rig is great for fishing a soft plastic worm or a variety of other soft plastic baits in and around many different types of cover, in deeper water and in the shallows if you go with a lighter weight.

Peg Your Weight or Use a Florida Rig

To prevent your weight from moving up the line, either peg the weight or use a weight that connects to the worm.  The corkscrew weight that connects to the worm is known as a Florida rig when you attach it to the bait.
