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.

    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
    • What do you have against Japanese Beetles?   Diversity is good.   We need all nationalities of beetles.  Even VW beetles.   Asian Lady Beetles, everything.  All nationality and gender identity beetles. 
    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
    • Yes spray it, or wipe it down with an oiled paper towel before you use it.  I use a little ball of aluminum foil to scrub them after the cook, but while they are still warm. They make disposable grill topper grates that are handy too when you are cooking something that is going to be really messy.
