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
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."
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"
Cedar Lake (MN)
Michael Rekas reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Neko Rigs technique and Yum Dinger Worm 5" on Cedar Lake. 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."
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. "
Zoom Trick Worm
$4.49 – 6.19
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. "
Smith Mountain Lake (VA)
Calvin Herndon reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Neko Rigs technique and Zoom Trick Worm on Smith Mountain Lake. Additional comments from this report: "The lake was on fire this past weekend. I was catching fish on a Neko rig on the south end of the lake on docks that leads to deep water access. Spear point 1/0 GP Finesse hook with a 1/16 weight in the head "
Learning the Wild Life
Leesville Lake (VA)
Learning the Wild Life reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Neko Rigs technique and Zoom Trick Worm on Leesville Lake. Additional comments from this report: "Joshua's Report: Today I was throwing a Neko rigged Zoom Trick worm around docks, and shallow cover! which was pretty straightforward. One Tip though, try to get your bait as close to the cover as possible, because those shallow summer bass seek as much shelter as possible to escape the hot sun!"

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."
