VMC Neko Hook

$3.29 – $10.49

Reported by
Michael Rekas

Cedar Lake (76) (MN)

Michael Rekas reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Neko Rigs technique and VMC Neko Hook 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"

Reported by
Bart

Lower Prior Lake (MN)

Bart reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Neko Rigs technique and VMC Neko Hook on Lower Prior Lake. Additional comments from this report: "The bite on Prior Lake this year has been MAJOR hot or cold. If you hit them right, they've been eating really well around bluegill beds in 8 - 14 ft of water. A Neko Rig has been a really effective way to get them to bite with a lot of pressure and boat traffic on the lake. A jig worm with a 7" ribbontail worm as also been good."

VMC Weedless Neko Hook

$5.29

Reported by
Tim Blase

Coon Lake (MN)

When Coon is going it's a really fun lake to fish. You have to move around a lot and try different things to see what is working. In the summer I will typically start on offshore points keying on rock transitions. I have had my best success with neko rigs. Z-Man product have been good for me this year a neko rig. If the off shore stuff is not working I will pick up a frog and try to cover water till I run into them.

Reported by
Mark Charpentier

Gull Lake (MN)

Mark Charpentier reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Neko Rigs technique and VMC Weedless Neko Hook on Gull Lake . Additional comments from this report: "We got bass up to 4 lbs. on deep weed edges. The fish were in from the edge a few feet. Most bites came as you pulled the bait out of the weeds. Best bite was during the first few hours of the morning."

Reported by
Omnia Community Member

Fish Trap Lake (MN)

Omnia Community Member reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Neko Rigs technique and VMC Weedless Neko Hook on Fish Trap Lake. Additional comments from this report: "Had good luck dropping a wacky rigged 5" senko about 6"-12" inside the reed line edge. I used a couple quick jerks to keep the bait high until I crossed the reed edge, then let the bait fall skimming the tops of the weeds until about half way back to the boat. this method out produced every other tactic I worked that day."

VMC Wacky Hook

$2.69 – $9.99

Reported by
Mike

Mazaska Lake (MN)

Mike reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Neko Rigs technique and VMC Wacky Hook on Mazaska Lake. Additional comments from this report: "Under the biggest, most shaded docks, like way under."

Reported by
Bryce Kistler

Guntersville Lake (AL)

Bryce Kistler reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Neko Rigs technique and VMC Wacky Hook on Guntersville Lake. Additional comments from this report: "The wacky rig is a huge deal this time if the year. Bass are flooding the bank and looking to spawn. Throwing this bait around you can easily pick up 20+ bass in 3 hours or so. The finesse style of this bait really makes these fish very vulnerable. You will need a 7’ medium heavy spinning rod with 10lb braid and 8lb Fluoro leader."

Reported by
Bjorn the Bassin Assassin

Nebish Lake (WI)

Bjorn the Bassin Assassin reported catching Smallmouth Bass using the Neko Rigs technique and VMC Wacky Hook on Nebish Lake. Additional comments from this report: "The SM were sitting on the bottom in 12-15' water, along ledges. They were easy to pick out on my Garmin. I put a 1/16oz nail weight in the fat end of the MB Fat Finesse Worm and dropped it behind me when I saw a bogey on the radar. I caught several good size smallies this way in a little under 2 hours.
