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 Wacky Rigs technique mentioned in fishing reports from anglers near you.

WOO! Tungsten Nail Weight

$5.49

Reported by
Drew

Goose Lake (MN)

Drew reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Wacky Rigs technique and WOO! Tungsten Nail Weight on Goose Lake. Additional comments from this report: "Bass were posted up post-spawn among the lillipads adjacent to wind-blown current. Water clarity is decent, but on the darker side. Use bright senko when the sun is shinning and blue/black color when its not. Having a fast reel and a nail weight was critical to quickly pepper the edges with casts to work the worm as you cover water. "

Will J

Lake Lanier (GA)

Will J reported catching Spotted Bass using the Wacky Rigs technique and WOO! Tungsten Nail Weight on Lake Lanier. Additional comments from this report: "Pictured is the smallest at 8" largest caught was 16". Caught 1 on the missile baits ned and 4 on the baby bass. Wind was blowing around 5 mph. Throwing around over hanging trees, blown down trees and around large boulders. Was tough after the spawn. All reaction bait would only get followers. Slowed down and threw the wacky with a little weight to it. "

Reported by
Aaron

Little Bearskin Lake (WI)

Aaron reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Wacky Rigs technique and VMC Neko Weight on Little Bearskin Lake. Additional comments from this report: "Cooler than normal weather and water conditions had the largemouth bass tucked into heavier clumps of submerged vegetation in about 4-8 ft of water. Short pitches of wacky and neko rigged plastics around the clumps and weed lines yielded nice largemouth. Simple technique for kids and beginners to build some confidence and have fun fishing. Light line, sensitive rod and smooth drag are key to the presentation in clear water. "

Caught a mixed bag of smallies and largemouth(white the occasional pickeral also)."

VMC Tungsten Worm Weight

$4.79 – $8.49

Reported by
Rich Lindgren

Murphy Lake (MN)

Rich Lindgren reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Wacky Rigs technique and VMC Tungsten Worm Weight on Murphy Lake. Additional comments from this report: "This lake appears to warm up quick & is ahead of other lakes in the metro. Water temps 65F. Few males guarding fry, but most of the fish seemed to be Post Spawn. Target wood surrounded by vegetation. Weedless wacky rig 5" Yum Dingers and pitch D-Bombs into the thicker clumps when required."

Reported by
Ryan Fair

Lake Monona (WI)

Largemouth are still heavily relating to bluegill beds. There are a lot of them up shallow in 2-4" with large numbers of bass around. Targeting these fish with wacky rigs is money. The average size isn't huge but you can catch TONS of fish. For better quality bass target the bluegill beds on the weed edges (easy to find with side imaging). I have been fishing these with texas rigged craws and having good success.

Reported by
Jacob Stem

Oneida Lake (NY)

Jacob Stem reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Wacky Rigs technique and VMC Tungsten Worm Weight on Oneida Lake . Additional comments from this report: "Today I had a Kayak bass tournament for the Elite Kayak Series. After two days of practice I was able to locate a couple productive areas in the grass for largemouth bass even found a bedding smallmouth with 70ish degree water temps. I switched between a wacky rig and a Texas rigged worm. In the morning I even messed with a spro epop (popper). I caught a ton of largemouth and finished 12th out of 43."
