How to Rig a Weedless Wacky Worm

If bass are in cover like brush and heavy grass, you can still get a wacky rig into the thick of it, but not with conventional rigging. Jeff Kriet shows us how to hook the worm so it’s completely weedless, while retaining that wacky action. He employed this method during the 2016 Elite Series Bull Shoals/Norfork event. As Kriet explains, the bass were located at the base or root structure of brush, making it virtually impossible to fish a conventional exposed hook wacky rig. This slick weedless system let you fish tight to the cover, and accounted for many of his weighed bass.
