After using the Ned Rig heavily this past year we’ve formed strong opinions about baits, colors, head sizes, and gear. Its time to revisit the topic and really break down the specific tackle that we have had the best success with.
There are a variety of “Ned” baits on the market but Tim has found 2 that really stand out from the crowd. His preferred baits are the original Finesse T.R.D. by Z Man, and the 3″ Roboworm Ned Worm. Tim’s best success has come on natural colors fished with the minimum weight necessary to maintain bottom contact.
Below is a breakdown of the baits, hooks, colors, and gear that we’ve had the best success with while fishing this Midwest Finesse technique.
