Neko Rig Fishing Tips & Tricks Pt. 1: How To Set It Up

The Neko rig has busted onto the bass fishing scene in the last few years and for good reason. This rig is one of the best for when the bite is tough and you need a finesse presentation.

The Neko rig requires three components: a soft plastic worm, a nail weight, and a small Neko rig hook. First, take the nail weight and slide it into the head of the worm. Next, rig the Neko hook through the back of the worm with the hook point facing the end of the worm opposite the nail weight. Lastly, tie on the fully assembled Neko rig to a rod and reel spooled up with light fluorocarbon and start catching fish!

I usually use a smaller hook and instead of hooking it the way he does in this video, just wacky rig it a little further toward the nose than you normally would.

If you put an o-ring on you can save your worms. You can also leave the hook tip in the worm for a more weedless presentation.
