How To Pond Fish For Bass With A Wacky Worm Rig
Updated: Jul 13, 2020
The wacky worm rig is the go to lure rig for pond fishing for bass. Beginner anglers can utilize the wacky worm as a reliable rig because it is not difficult to set up, it can be casted just about anywhere, and the retrieval techniques are fairly easy.
Cast Under Overhanging Tree Branches
If you are like me, my go to target casting spot is underneath over hanging trees. Bass enjoy shaded areas on hot days so they will retreat to cooler water which can be found under shade or in deeper areas of the pond.
Pro tip: use a skip cast to get underneath overhanging trees. If you get tangled up in a tree, you are very likely to never see your wacky worm again. I always feel so bad about having to cut my line and leave behind technically litter. Learn how to skip cast here!
Luckily for you, we are creating a biodegradable alternative to traditional soft plastic fishing lures. We strive to create lures that won't feel like you are sacrificing something from your fishing experience to be eco-friendly.
O-Rings are really good for extending the usage of a single wacky worm. With an O-ring you don't have to stab the hook through the body of the wacky worm, instead the O-ring goes around the worm and the hook goes in between the O-ring and the worm.
O-rings also help prevent the wacky worm from falling off of the hook easily when struck by a huge bass.
Fishing for pond bass is a sure fire way to have a good time. Ponds are nice depending on the size, because you can cover a majority of the body of water from the bank. I highly recommend giving your local small ponds in your area a try, you never know what you might catch!
