A Texas rig is usually fished in contact with the bottom with either a hopping motion or dragged. The same can said for a jig, but avid bass anglers swim jigs with conviction and produce huge bags. Well, “why not swim a Texas-rigged worm?” — says professional angler Jimmy Mason. Sometimes bass go on the horizontal chew, that is, they like a presentation moving sideways rather than up and down. If you’re fishing grass, tickling the tops with a Texas-rigged worm is a great trigger and doesn’t get hung up.
