Floating worms are unique since they float up off the bottom. Most anglers fish these baits on a Carolina rig or drop shot rig and they’re probably the best 2 rigs to fish these baits, but they also look good on a variety of others as well. Shaky head jigs, the Florida rig and even swimbait hooks make these soft plastic baits look good. As the baits lift off the bottom and float up, they are much more visible and very appealing to a hungry bass.
Let These Baits Pause Longer
The big advantage of the floating worms is that they float up after you pause the bait. Anglers that do well with floating worms will usually allow these baits to pause a little bit longer, which helps draw strikes when these baits rise up off the bottom.
