What IS A Wacky Rig Anyway?

In a never-ending quest to catch more and bigger fish, anglers have learned to embrace a multitude of baits and techniques. We’ve learned to flip and pitch, cast monstrous swimbaits and even rig a drop shot. And though these fishing techniques began as foreign to most of us, eventually they found their way into the bass fishing vernacular.

While most anglers have already been introduced to wacky rigging as a concept, it seems that some of the finer points of making this finesse presentation work, as well as some of the terminal tackle, haven’t yet reached the masses. The wacky rig system isn’t complicated, but knowing when, where and how to use it can provide you with one of the most effective fishing techniques for spawn, post-spawn, and even deep-structure fishing.

I would say first and foremost the wacky presentation is probably at its best during spawn and post-spawn when fish move up shallow. That’s because the wacky system allows you to keep the bait in the strike zone longer and it creates a lot more action with the bait. Outside grass lines, pockets in reeds, docks, rock walls, wherever fish are spawning or have moved to in a post-spawn situation are great places for a wacky rigged soft plastic. Especially in the post-spawn when bass get really lethargic and they don’t want to chase bait, scaling down with a wacky worm will produce strikes for you. If you can’t get bit on a 10-inch Berkley PowerBait Power Worm because the fish are shallow, you can assure yourself that if you put on a Berkley PowerBait Fat Dover Crawler and just start fishing it you are going to catch fish.

The clearer the water the better the wacky system seems to work. Obviously, with dirtier water, you’re going to want something bigger like a Texas rig. The wacky rig, when not fishing thick grass or trying to get it up in the middle of a tree, is more efficient than a Texas rig.
