Soft plastic leeches will definitely work for smallmouth bass. The key to using soft plastic leeches is to give them some lifelike action. You can use a variety of rigs, but the drop shot rig, shaky head jig, weightless rig and a regular jighead tend to work best with most soft plastic leeches.
Best Rigs for Soft Plastic Leeches
Drop Shot Rig
The drop shot rig is the best rig for giving a soft plastic leech the most action. You can fish it shallow or deep and have a lot of success with this rig.
A simple jighead is how most people rig a soft plastic leech. If you are hopping it along the bottom or vertically jigging it for suspended fish, you have a good chance to catch some largemouth bass. Just make sure to give it plenty of action.
