Best Neko Rig Weight
Omnia collects thousands of detailed fishing reports from anglers across the country to power our local recommendations. Here are the top Weights recommendations for using the Neko Rigs technique mentioned in fishing reports from anglers near you.
VMC Neko Weight
Chisago Lake (MN)
Travis Newville reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Neko Rigs technique and VMC Neko Weight on Chisago Lake. Additional comments from this report: "Neko Rig is a great way to catch them in the summer. Play the conditions on the weedlines and cover water."
Lake Waconia (MN)
Malachai Her reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Neko Rigs technique and VMC Neko Weight on Lake Waconia. Additional comments from this report: "The fish were keying onto bluegill beds next to submerged milfoil close to hard bottom, the bass were in a power fishing finesse mood. Dragging or hopping the neko rig next to the milfoil edge or across the bluegill beds was how to get those fish to bite. When the neko bite slowed down and those fish were keying onto the baitfish, dragging a grass jig was a good way to get those bigger bites. "
WOO! Tungsten Nail Weight
Lake Pahoja (IA)
Ethan Zomermaand reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Neko Rigs technique and WOO! Tungsten Nail Weight on Lake Pahoja. Additional comments from this report: "The bite was there, but I had to work for it. All of the quality fish caught were in shade, either from the shore or underneath the mat on the surface. Most fish were caught on the edge of the mat with a Neko rig and a chatter bait. I also missed a nice fish on a frog, but it was the only hit on topwater. "
Lake Geneva (WI)
LakeDelavanKid reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Neko Rigs technique and WOO! Tungsten Nail Weight on Lake Geneva. Additional comments from this report: "Hoped in a wens nighter was a blast had 5 for 13 and change, Williams bay was on fire all night long ! Ended with a top ten in the tournament ! "
Omnia Fishing reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Neko Rigs technique and WOO! Tungsten Nail Weight on Stockton Lake. Additional comments from this report: "Deep brush has been producing the bigger bites of late. Small window in the early morning with a topwater. Moving out to the deep brush piles with a Neko Rig works. I've been staying off the top of the piles and casting to them. Being vertical on them has been tougher lately, maybe due to fishing pressure. "
Z-Man Neko ShroomZ
Chisago Lake (MN)
Helter_Stelter reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Neko Rigs technique and Z-Man Neko ShroomZ 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."
Alum Creek Reservoir (OH)
Ohio Angler reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Neko Rigs technique and Z-Man Neko ShroomZ on Alum Creek Reservoir. Additional comments from this report: "If you find the weeds you find the bass. They were all laying in the weeds and weed edges. The Neko rig was able to lure them out. Canst into the weeds and slowly work the rig through. Many times, they would bust it on the fall."
James River (VA)
GRAE BUCK reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Neko Rigs technique and Z-Man Neko ShroomZ on James River . Additional comments from this report: "Stop number 5 of the MLF Pro Circuit was on the James River where I finished up in 11th place. I was leading the event after the first two days catching 21lbs 3 ounces which was anchored by a 6lb 6oz kicker and backed it up day 2 with 15lbs 2ounces. I was targeting an area that had a lot of current flowing through it as the tide would go out. The key was waiting for the tide to get low so the fish would position in the ditch and current seams to make them the easiest to catch. The major feeding of these fish would occur during the last two hours of outgoing and first hour of incoming before they would head back out on the coontail flats to chase bait with the higher tide. I was using a Z-Man BangstickZ with a 1/20oz Neko Shroomz weight and hooking it right in the middle with a 2/0 Hayabusa FPP Straight hook. This was on a Favorite 721 Hex Spinning Rod with a Favorite Rush 2500 Spinning reel filled up with 15lb Seaguar Smackdown and a 10lb Gold Label leader."

Lonnie Bloom reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Neko Rigs technique and VMC Neko Weight on Lake Minnetonka. Additional comments from this report: "Ran several different sections of docks during my last derb on Tonka, almost exclusively threw a Neko rig at them. Finding the docks with tips in 10fow or deeper proved the best for size provided there was good milfoil present near the end or underneath the dock. It worked well as a means to cover water quickly, skipping it up under each dock from 3 different angles as we rolled up to, in front of, and past, and then moving onto the next one. Dead paused on semi slack line and then dragging it maybe 3-4" and then pausing it again, hopping did not provide the same number of bites. If it didn't get eaten after that second pause, reel in and do it again. Kick up the trolling motor speed and burn em, doubling back and hitting them from the other direction produced more bite as well. "
