The Ned Rig has been around a few years now but it exploded in 2019! Virtually every major brand in bass fishing introduced a “ned” worm or creature of some kind at ICAST. With all of the worms, creatures, craws, and heads on the market its hard to know which ones are worth the time. Today’s buyer’s guide is geared at simplifying the whole mess so that when you’re on the water, you know you’re throwing your best option. 

Below is a breakdown of the baits, hooks, and equipment Tim recommends for fishing the Ned Rig. Because this is a buyer’s guide every product includes a link to the exact bait on Tackle Warehouse where you can see close up pictures, information, and color samples. In addition to the link we’ve included Tim’s favorite color choices for each worm.
