How To Fish BIG Worms For Summer Bass

Summer has arrived and the fish are moving offshore so get ready! Its time to dust off those BIG worms and head out to the breaks and ledges! In Today’s video Tim explains the advantages of different worms, colors, and rigging methods.

Whether you are fishing for number or BIG bass, the Texas rigged worm or Carolina rigged worm is a great choice throughout the Summer months. These simple rigs produce both quantity AND quality consistently. If your goal is just to catch fish, you don’t even need dedicated gear for this technique.
