It’s difficult to argue that the Texas rig is likely the most used and effective method for fishing soft plastics in a wide range of habitats. The rig is weedless and snag-proof if the plastic covers the hook point, and can be fished from top to bottom in the water column depending on weight used. It’s a must-know for all bass anglers that take their fishing seriously. 

This is a streamlined video walkthrough that complements our popular feature 5 Bass Fishing Rigs Every Angler Should Know.
