Ned Rig baits were the talk of ICAST this year. Every company introduced a Ned Worm, some introduced entire lines of Ned products. So how do you know which are actually worth your time? These 9 offerings looked the best “on the shelf” to us. We always like to show the bass something different and each of these offerings had a unique feature. After gathering underwater footage of how they moved, we definitely found some favorites.

Which are your favorites? Do you like that traditional Ned profile with minimal action? Do you like a lot of movement? Do the craw and creature profiles seem like a solid option for your bass? There is so much information to be gained with just a few minutes spent underwater. Below you’ll find links to all the baits (in order of appearance) as well as color recommendations, rod and reel recommendations, and more.
