A wacky way of bass fishing that works wonders

You might lose fewer plastic worms rigged wacky style if you slide an “O” ring onto your worm. Then you can thread the hook between the ring and the worm, better securing the worm on the hook. (Photo by Glenn Sapir)

On the occasion of fishing with Virgil, we rigged his purple 6-inch worms Texas style, with the hook point embedded in the worm. Throwing his bait into inviting shoreline cover, Virgil came out with a 9-pound Florida largemouth.
“Throw in there and catch his grandpa,” Virgil encouraged me, and with the same worm setup as his, I made a perfect cast toward the blowdown lying in the water. In seconds I was bringing in a 7-pound hawg.
