Final thoughts


There’s a lot you can do with a Neko weight outside of Neko rigging. I believe there are instances where these weights will make a noticeable impact on the effectiveness of all three of these techniques.

Great swimbait anglers have already proven how effective Neko weights are for fine tuning their big baits. And a wacky rig is one of the most effective baits out there at getting bit around shallow fish. Wouldn’t you like to know how effective it is a little deeper? And now with a Fluke that can go a little farther, I’m already seeing schooling fish that got away in the past coming right into my range.

Tinkering with tackle and testing out the capabilities of new ideas is half the fun of fishing. So give these three a try and maybe even see if there’s something else you can figure out to do with these weights. Let us know if you do.
