Texas Rig Basics for Grass Line Bass

Shallow to deep and everywhere in-between, a Texas-rigged creature bait is a versatile rig that excels around cover. Bass jigs have a tendency to hang up more in cover whereas a slim-profiled bait like the Zoom Z-Hog penetrates and moves through grass and wood without fouling.

Kyle Peterson walks us through his go-to setup and discusses why he favors small to midsized creature baits rigged on a 4/0 heavy cover hook and weighted with a pegged 3/8 ounce tungsten weight. A couple full grown bass adds some fun and supports his case.
