Best Neko Rig Bait

Omnia collects thousands of detailed fishing reports from anglers across the country to power our local recommendations. Here are the top Worms recommendations for using the Neko Rigs technique mentioned in fishing reports from anglers near you.

Yamamoto 5" Senko Worm

$7.49

Reported by
Glenn Walker

Lake Minnetonka (MN)

Glenn Walker reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Neko Rigs technique and Yamamoto 5" Senko Worm on Lake Minnetonka. Additional comments from this report: "Making long casts to isolated coontail clumps in 10' of water with a Senko was working. The Seaguar Smackdown braid to Gold Label leader does wonders in feeling the lite bites and getting the bass out of the weeds."

Reported by
Sean Richard

Big Birch Lake (MN)

Sean Richard reported catching Smallmouth Bass using the Neko Rigs technique and Yamamoto 5" Senko Worm on Big Birch Lake. Additional comments from this report: "Found smallies locked on their beds and largemouth in the reeds nearby. Wacky and Neko worm pulled quantity and quality bass."

Reported by
Bart

Gull Lake (MN)

Bart reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Neko Rigs technique and Yamamoto 5" Senko Worm on Gull Lake . Additional comments from this report: "The bite on Gull Lake has been on absolute fire as of late, there isn't a wrong way to catch them at the moment but I've found the best fishing on the grass ledges anywhere from 8 - 16 ft. Seems like a large range, but when you get out on the lake and see how fast the drops are it makes sense. The weeds are less dense this year so I've found the bite to be better with worm profile baits."

Yum Dinger Worm 5"

$3.79

Reported by
Michael Rekas

Cedar Lake (76) (MN)

Michael Rekas reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Neko Rigs technique and Yum Dinger Worm 5" on Cedar Lake (76). Additional comments from this report: "Flipping/casting a heavier Neko rig around the outside of dying pads produced good bites. Work the Neko rig slowly back to the bank hopping and dragging it. Let the fish eat, then just lean into them. If you set too quick you will miss a lot of fish. Good luck"

Chisago Lake (MN)

Helter_Stelter reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Neko Rigs technique and Yum Dinger Worm 5" on Chisago Lake. Additional comments from this report: "Dirty water and high pressure conditions, working the bait miserably slow was about the only way to get them to bite."

Reported by
Mark Charpentier

Borden Lake (MN)

Mark Charpentier reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Neko Rigs technique and Yum Dinger Worm 5" on Borden Lake. Additional comments from this report: "The bass were on rocks 18-20 feet deep. "

$6.19

Reported by
Bryan Best

Mason Lake (WI) (WI)

Bryan Best reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Neko Rigs technique and Zoom Trick Worm on Mason Lake (WI). Additional comments from this report: "Working spawning LGM Bass with Neko Rig. Great experience to be able to watch Big Girls walk away with your bait and crack them! VMC Neko Terminal Tackle is my go to for this presentation tipped with a 6.5” Trick Worm! She went 6.5 lbs @ 21.75”. "

Reported by
Final Flight Outdoors

Melton Hill Lake (TN)

Final Flight Outdoors reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Neko Rigs technique and Zoom Trick Worm on Melton Hill Lake. Additional comments from this report: "As always caught several fish but most of them are 12”-14”. Did end up with decent bag. Had a 3.15 and 2.75 with 5 totaling 10.30. Fish are starting to move up on beds. Caught most on transition banks with lay downs. Bug and senko on trees and shakey head down the bank."

Reported by
Dusty Wood

Lake Hartwell (GA, SC)

Dusty Wood reported catching Spotted Bass using the Neko Rigs technique and Zoom Trick Worm on Lake Hartwell. Additional comments from this report: "You are able to find a lot of fish out in deeper water. Getting them to bite is the hard part, it is mostly a timing thing so you will need to return to fish throughout the day. In the morning you can catch fish on moving baits like deep crank baits and jerk baits. Once the sun gets up high in the sky you need to switch to bottom baits. The neko rig is a great way to catch fish when they don’t want to bite. It helps when you can stay back off the fish so I’m using a 7’6” rod to gain some extra distance. It helps a lot to have a sensitive rod like the Steez AGS because most of the fish are biting on slack line or just mouthing the bite. "
