Chunk Worms

Popular Fishing Techniques

Hop Them Along the Bottom

Finesse worms look great when hopped along the bottom.  Use a lighter jighead, small Texas rig or a drop shot rig and just hop them along the bottom with some pauses mixed in.

Try Slowly Falling Them Through the Water Column

These 3.5 to 4″ worm chunks look good fished wacky style with a slow fall through the water column. Fish them weightless or use a very light weight to make them fall a little bit faster. Both ways will work well.

Popular Fishing Rigs

Ned Rig

The Ned Rig is one of the most popular way to fish these baits.  This rig is why these baits have become as popular as they are today.

Jighead (Longer Shank)

Any longer shank jighead will also work great with these chunk worms.  The Ned rig jigs work better because the size of the jighead is made to match these chunkier, shorter worms, however, you can still catch a ton of bass with a simple longer shank jighead.

Standup Jighead

The standup jighead works nicely because it will help to position the bait up off the bottom, which helps generate some strikes when you pause the bait on the bottom.

Split Shot Rig

A simple split shot rig is another way to fish this bait.  It is not the most popular way to fish it, but it definitely works.
