Been reading a lot of talk about bass fishing with zoom trick worms on this forum, and I was wondering how do you guys rig it up? Texas, Carolina, weightless? Gonna give it a try once I return to NC after killin the smallmouth here in Buffalo, NY!

Thanks

I rig mine texas style...without the weight...if I want it to float. If I want to get it on the bottom, a split shot or Carolina rig works for me. It can also be used wacky style, and they are durable enough to last a while using that way, too.

Without weight, they can be skipped into some pretty tight places, with practice, of course! :p

I usually use them on a shakeyhead or carolina rig, also good weightless or whacky. They can be texas rigged too but I never fish them that way myself.

Black with a yellow swirl, rig Texas style and let the catching begin. Cast out and
1...twitch it across the top
2...let sink slightly and twitch like a Senko
3...Carolina Rig

Every rig you mentioned will work. Every one works better for me but it's circumstantial. It's according to where I'm fishing it. One thing that ALWAYS stays the same though is WEEDLESS.

I am less a fan of T-rig than the other options since it's hard to keep the worm from spinning as I let it swim through the water. I use them most on a shakey head. Wacky style or weightless fished like a fluke they are pretty deadly, the slower the better.

if you thread the worm deeper before the first exit of the hook and texpose on a tight worm it wont spin. it will walk underwater instead.

I've been fishing a Texas rigged trick worm in watermelon with chartreuse tail I picked up at Bass Pro a couple weeks ago pretty successfully. Normally I'll fish my plastics with the standard pull up and let fall, but I've had success with this strategy as well as a moderate swim with this trick worm.

The weightless black trick worm came through yesterday, this was the only bite I got. She had a big head but was skinny and spawned out, 4.1 lb.

Another similar weightless method is to put a swivel about 18-24 inches from hook and retrieve with a 1,2,3, short wrist jerk and then a pause. Watch your line and prepare to bandage you elbow later from the many hook sets.

I have fished T-rig weightless with good success. Last year I was introduced to Honey Hole Float worms, I like the action better, but trick works for sure

Caught an eight pounder at HPCL on a watermelon red TW a few years ago. Texas rigged, with a bullet weight. This is certainly one of the most versatile baits ZOOM has ever made.
