The Neko Rig / nail weight finesse scene may be one of bass fishing’s best kept secrets. Neko Rigging or nail weighting plastics allows you to essentially fish a wacky rig in deep water just as efficiently you would a drop shot or jig. This is an easy and affordable way to present plastics in never before seen ways. Think of nail weighting as creating your own presentation – keep experimenting with different weight, plastics, hooks and hooking positions, and you’re likely to find a combination that flat out catches them when other rigs don’t. KVD shares some thoughts on hook type and rigging for different conditions, and straight up tells us that he’s no expert at nail weighting. As he’s proven on Tour in 2016, the Strike King KVD Perfect Plastic Ocho is a deadly finesse plastic, and performs great when nail weighted.
