An Introduction to Neko Rigging for Overfished Bass

Neko rigging soft plastics has become a mainstay for many professional anglers who fish for bass on pressured fisheries and in highly pressured tournament situations. The system usually consists of a stick worm nail-weighted on one end, an o-ring roughly centered on the plastic and a small hook ran through the o-ring.

Wired2fish publisher Jason Sealock shows us a few ways to fish the system as well as some basic equipment guidelines, as well as what he likes about it compared to fishing a shaky head, drop shot or other finesse presentation that many other anglers are using on a lake like Kentucky Lake that sees some of the most intense fishing pressure for deep schools of bass.
