Ned Rig

Recommended Posts

You hate the Elk, or you hate upper Elk and thousands of drunks that have ruined the upper?

I should probably use the term "strongly dislike" instead.

Not counting the party floaters, it still gets beat to death.

And yes I am talking about Pville to Noel.

I shouldn't knock it though. It serves it's purpose. To keep those part time nature lovers off the rest of our streams.

I have fished the "Ned" recently and as some have stated it does tend to catch what seems like the smaller fish in the room......but, I have been experimenting with some other baits on the Ned head and these baits I have found will always catch bigger fish on average than the Zinker cut in half.

cut about an inch off of the front and wow this will get you bigger fish and I'm not sure why?? If you would like a cheaper alternative go with the http://www.tacklewarehouse.com/GrandeBass_Honcho_8pk/descpage-GRDBHON.html#multiview

or the

I'm also rigging these a little longer than the traditional Ned.....about a five inch worm, yes it's more costly but, that's not an issue for me.

I also have had more bigger bass eat these on the Ned http://www.tacklewarehouse.com/Big_Bite_Baits_Jeff_Kriet_-_Squirrel_Tail_Worm_10pk/descpage-BBBSQTW.html#multiview I use the whole 4.5 inch version.

staying with Big Bite these also have picked bigger fish and I don't know why?? http://www.tacklewarehouse.com/Big_Bite_Baits_Jeff_Kriet_-_Shaking_Squirrel_Worm/descpage-BBBSHSQ.html#multiview

These are merely my opinion based on observations over the last 6 months of fishing......and yes I am a bait whore and I like to experiment.

Old guy talking here. Charlie Brewers "Do Nothing" slider heads and worms made bait around 5 inches long when rigged. The largest non-Canadian small mouth I ever had had on the line broke me off. He or she still owns a slider head worm.

And they made the Whirly Bee, which was, and is, a terror on brown fish at times. Little spinner over the hook. Have also heard it called a Mattie. Had a similar arrangement he used with the TX rig slider head, with the swivel and blade on the hook below the worm. Have only seen that one. There are some cool, old videos of Brewer fishing lakes like Wheeler and Pickwick on YouTube.

I've been wanting to ask you about that sriracha sauce you had.

I bought some of that but it was much much hotter!

I got the exact same bottle you have!

What gives?

It was cut with some Louisiana.

I always liked the Slider bodies but wasn't a big fan of the jig.

Did you like the jig?

No I trimmed it with dykes. I started with the 1/4 ounce and trimmed the front stick out part off to where it was about a 1/8th.

Conclusion: Some people like and fish the Ned rig. Some don't. The rest don't know and probably have no friends and live with their moms.

If that is the conclusion, then why are folks so grumpy about it, and quick to dump on it?
