The Texas rig works well for rigging a variety of soft plastic baits. Use your favorite soft plastics for northern pike on this rig and you can fish around all types of cover with less hangups. If you are fishing wood, scattered grass, reeds or lily pads, you should be able to work soft plastics in and around this stuff with a variety of soft plastic baits.
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 or other soft plastic bait. The corkscrew weight that connects to the worm is known as a Florida rig when you attach it to the bait.
