Do nothing worms- does anyone use them?


Recommended Posts

Does anyone still use those prerigged worms? The ones with the 3 hooks, I know I saw them at the Bass show over the winter but I cant remember what brand they were. Just think they might be good for the slow days. Any ideas?

I know exactly which ones you are talking about and in fact I just read in a recent bass magazine (for reference I think it was bassmaster) that there is a resurgence of this type of lure and they tell you how to make your own in the article.

I've been fishing with my wife's grandpa a number of times at their lake home in Michigan and he swears by them and he has consistantly caught bigger bass than me on his chain of lakes. His preference has always been a purple worm with white line or dot on it.

I think they work great, but prefer to fish other methods 95% of the time reason being that I like to work different depths and retreaves as well as prefer much larger hooks when bass fishing. But they definitely work and are a classic bass slayer! If you do get them, get the ones with 3 hooks (both ends & middle) vs. ones with just two hooks (end & middle).

Funny you should mension this.. Most of the day yesturday I was throwing a Swimming worm rig. This is a rig that you can do with a similar 7" straight tail worm on a worm hook. You rig it in such a way so that the worm Spins when you retrieve it. I dont use the pre-rigs, but I tell you... its pretty much the exact same rig. With only 1 hook about 4/0 or 5/0.. inseat of 3 smaller ones.

Its an awesome bait!

I picked up some pre-rigged plastic worms... tiny ones with two hooks and some larger ones that are like replacements for this one that I got that has a spinner on the nose and then a two-hook crawler harness. So far I've enjoyed the action but I haven't caught anything on them yet.

Thanks for the replies. Dietz, how do you rig it so that it spins? Do you have to use a swivel to prevent line twist? Do you throw them weightless, or do you have to use like a splitshot rig?

    • If you fish the river it could. Ive done it and seen it done multple times. Hit a log that is.
    • could that happen???? yea probably, but unlikely.   i've been chopping or helped or watched cutting spearchucking holes since i've been about 8-10 years old, i'm 65 now, and never remotely seen it happen. ''closest i came was cut a spearhouse hole, plopped the house over it and ended up with a deadhead right smack in the middle of it. the top of the log about 4 ft below the ice!!!!!! 
    • That would be nice til you caught a log frozen in the ice and broke both your arms and your back.
    • Screw your little toy e-augers and chain saws!  😏  😆          
    • the wife and I took a little drive to Arkansas for one more ride. 
    • I get where your coming from Leech. There are some gray areas and loopholes and they know how to work them. These youtube people they want you to be angry, it all plays right into their revenue.   The thing with these youtubers is they unfortunately  have a mass following and they will tell all their fans to show up at the DNR offices, court house, call the office phones etc. And it just drives up their following, youtube views etc. and the result is just more revenue for the youtube channel and people get sucked right in (myself included). Like I said love him or hate him he's generating significant income by doing it and its like a bad car wreck you just cant look away.    In some cases the DNR getting involved the risk outweighs the reward if you get my drift. look at the crowds that came out for him over a misdemeanor jet ski fine in TN. It looks like its straight out of the movie "Time to kill" lol:   More:  
    • Another reply from the DNR Capt.  Sounds like their a bit afraid to dig in and get what the need to prosecute.   Mr. Beeeped-out  😉 I do want to thank you for your time in researching and sending us the information.  The second video in particular involves the CBoyz near Cormorant Village in Becker County.  If you watch many of their videos they are full of violations.  We have met with the County Attorney’s Office and we have been told that unless we can provide a date/time of the actual event they will decline to prosecute.  We have identified many of the players in these videos but only have a date/time of the video release and not the actual date and time.  We have also made contact with them and taken enforcement action in many of their videos.  They are not afraid to film our officers in action.  In addition the first video was a year or two old if I recall.  I will not disagree that when looking at the video there is areas of concern but unless we can observe the damage and be able to testify in court that the wetland was damaged we would likely not be successful in prosecution.  We will continue to monitor their activity and if observed causing damage we will be taking enforcement action.  We appreciate and share your concerns.  If you have any additional information please forward to us.  Capt. Seefeldt   These Jackwads!
