I do not know how to post pics but you can google wacky rig and you will get plenty of examples. Basicly you just hook the worm in the middle.

As far as how to fish it there are many applications but the easiest and most effective is just to throw it out on a weedline or under a dock, it will most likley get hit on the fall. This is the most basic method. I am sure other will post too. Good Fishing!!

You can get the worms to last longer if you slip on an appropiate size split ring and just hook it through the split ring. The split ring has to be fit pretty tight though.

SledNeck - what size o-rings do you use?

Is it possible to put an o-ring when you're wacky jigging? I think due to the design of wacky jigheads, the hook has to be perpendicular to the worm's length.

I'm ripping a worm every 5 casts so I need help with this bad frown

never heard of a wacky jig head. I always use eagle claw #2 kahle hooks on senkos. I miss so few fish with these its unreal. The only drawback is that they are hard to pull out of their mouths.

Wacky jigging is that new Japanese craze that's supposed to replace dropshotting.

It's a jighead with the hook coming out at a 90 angle from the eye.The flick shake worms are wacky rigged and action is unbelievably good.

I bought a whole bunch of stuff on hsolist and they really do work.Thing is, they tear very very easily when wacky rigged.

I fish my senkos weightless. After a few fish, I save every one of them and use them for wacky riggin.

    • You might be able to figure things out this week.  How big is your sump basket?  Is the  pump kicking in now?  Sit there for 15 minutes and count the number of times it cycles.  That should give you a decent idea on how much water is coming in.  Then figure out about how high the water has to go before it flows by gravity.  The spec for the pump will say something like that it can pump 2,000 gph at 10 feet of lift.  (the gph drops dramatically the higher it has to pump the water).  The answer to your specifics will give you an idea of how big of a pump you need.  If you match the size of the pump as close as possible to the amount of water your will face you can maximize the amount of time the battery backup will last.   Faced with this problem I took a standard boat sump pump and modified it so I could hook up a garden hose.  The I took an old shop extension cord and wired the pump so I could hook it up to a car in the garage.  So just prior to having Noah float by I could hook things up in the garage and be good to go for as long as I had gas in the car to pump up the battery.   Now that I am adult I bought a generator and wired the house to take care of things.
    • Inevitably at least twice each season I will leave the house, drive 45 minutes and walk some of my favorite grouse spots for hours and hours, seeing nothing.  Admitting defeat on that day, I will drive 45 minutes back home, only to find a covey of birds in the driveway...
    • Colonel E.H. Taylor Small Batch Maker's Maker's 46 Bulleit Glenmorangie Highland Single Malt   Copperwing Distillery in St. Louis Park has a nice smooth whiskey. Supposed to introduce a new bourbon in a couple weeks too.
    • Hey featherslayer, you gonna register that nice bird of yours pretty soon?
    • cool find!  sure looks like a Swainson's.  
    • Great info.   Thanks Steve!   Jim
    • Came across this hawk on Earth Day at the edge of town. I've been told dark morph Red-tail, dark morph Swainson's and dark morph Broa- winged. Anyway, it's a dark morph some kind of hawk.
    • Yes it was.  I really needed one more layer today.  Lots of jakes and hens seen by us this morning.  Still looking for the toms.  Hope you had more luck.
    • There are a lot of apps available for that. Search your app store for "phone tracking" or something similar. Many give you the ability to share your positions so you both can see each other live. You might even have an app already on your phone. For example, I have Lookout Security installed on my phone and it includes the ability to find the location of my phone from another phone or PC.
