Underwater footage gives us a unique look at lure action. Every time we do this style video we discover baits work differently than expected. In this case we discovered that not all plastic worms are created equal. Some of these worms sink quickly while others drift to the bottom. Some works looked best with a subtle shake, others looked best with an aggressive hop.

Learning these nuances will make a huge difference in your daily fishing! As it turns out, we weren’t using one of our favorite worms to its fullest potential. We need to begin working it with a more aggressive hop to get the best action. Also, we identified two more worms that are going to get fished a lot more often! What did you learn? Let us know in the comments.

Below is a breakdown of the worms used (In order of appearance) as well as some of our favorite dropshot gear recommendations. The worm colors shown in the video were selected for their high visibility. We will include actual color recommendations for each worm as well.
