The spine of the bait isn’t the same diameter throughout the length of the worm however. Throughout most of the bait, the spine is thin and offers just enough material to hold the ribs together, but makes sure the bait is fairly durable and you won’t lose a tail on every bite. But towards the business end of the bait where the hook goes, NetBait gives you a good bit more meat to work with.
So if you want to Texas rig this bait, fish it on a shaky head or just rig it weedless and weightless, you have enough plastic in the spine and body of the bait to hide your hook point. If this section of the bait were as thin as the rest of the spine, your hook would tear through it constantly causing you to hang the bait on cover and go through several more worms much quicker.
