Bass Fishing With Soft Plastics Part II
There are many different types of soft plastics to choose from. Some favorites of many fishermen include the following: lube, lizard, finesse worm, jerkbait, slug, ciraw creature, ribbontail worm, stickbait, curlytail worm, and swimbait. These lures look pretty real and actually feel like real food. These lures can be rigged by the Texas or Carolina rig method on a baitcasting or spinning reel.
The Texas-style rig is used by the fishermen that are fishing for bass in weedy cover. When fishing in this type of situation, the fishermen uses a baitcasting reel that has been rigged Texas style. In the Texas style rig, the hook point is buried in the worm.
Another rigging method used with soft plastics is the Carolina rig. Bass fishermen use this when fishing on a clean bottom lake because the hook is exposed. Since the hook is exposed, it is easier to set the hook and land the bass.
