To this day, plastic worms are among the best bass baits no matter where you fish. Fortunately for the angler, innovations in bait designs and terminal tackle continue to advance how we fish worms and all soft bait categories for that matter. Pro bass angler Brandon Card demonstrates the fish-catching power of structure fishing worms using the Tokyo Rig in this action-packed video.


Wired2Fish was fortunate to join several pros for a week-long trip at Lake Baccarac Lodge in Mexico. The broad consensus was that bottom baits were the most consistent producers. Rather than stay on the jig program, Brandon opted to target pressured bass with a large finesse worm worked over the bottom of main lake points. Multiple 6- to 8-pound bass quickly solidified the Tokyo-rigged worm among the dominate techniques of the trip.

Card explains how to structure fish soft plastics using the Tokyo Rig – he goes through a detailed rigging session followed by an in-depth explanation of how he fishes it on a long cast. He then shares a tip on why he prefers two opposing tungsten dropper weights over a single weight, and his rod, reel and line preferences for hammering hooks home on long casts.
