    Thank you for your reply. I have started using 2/0 Trokar hooks when fishing with rubber worms and my hook sets have increased. Thanks again for getting back to me. Your information is greatly appreciated.

    I usually go weightless, worm sinks slower

    @ihatebobsaget1989 better to do a very slight twotching motion or pull slowly with your rod

    @HIGHSCHOOLHOP Bass typically will not lightly peck at your bait. You may be feeling bluegills or crappie. Most of the time when a bass bites a worm it is a much more violent jerk, because they will take your whole worm in their mouth and run with it. Keep only a little slack in your line and dont try to set your hook on those little pecks, wait until you feel the fish give a solid pull then set your hook. Good Luck!

    @TheCheaterFilms sometimes the bass inhale the worm with a fury and you know you have a fish….but most of the time (drop shotting) its a very lite tug almost feels like something barely bumped your worm or like a fish accidentally swam into the line…thats when i sweep to set the hook and you dont have to do it hard either… make sure you use sharp hooks too i use the Gamakatsu dropshot/ hooks or the Gamakatsu octopus size 2s. remember it feels like a lite bump on your rod tip. GOOD LUCK!

  12. TheCheaterFilms says:

    @jackson0knollwood i mean how do i know when the fish has the bait in its mouth. The only way i can usually tell is when i can see it. But my lake isnt very clearwater and i dont own a pair of polarized sunglasses.

  13. jackson0knollwood says:

    @ihatebobsaget1989 rarely do i texas rig but i do what some call flipping. its basically lifting your rod so the worm travels up and falls back down ..reel in the slack and repeat ocasionally jigging a few inches between “flips”

  14. jackson0knollwood says:

    @TheCheaterFilms if they arent taking the worm long enough try getting some pro guide formula smelly jelly (or any smelly jelly i just prefer the pro guide because it comes in a larger container) they tend to hold the worm an extra second or so longer. i dont like to texas rig for that reason….try drop shot method you dont have to be so vigilant setting the hook you just “sweep” your pole to the side and its set. best results for drop shot i have found is using the roboworms.

  15. TheCheaterFilms says:

    Hey. I was just wondering… I use this and i get ALOT of fish biting this rig. But i always seem to set the hook at the wrong time so can you post a video on how to know when the lure is in the fishs mouth? Thanks!

    i just caught a 21 inch bass today like an hour ago! 10 lbs

  17. fishin4lif says:

    @HIGHSCHOOLHOP use a smaller worm thats a good indication that the fish that might be “nibbling” on your bait are really just too small to get the full bait in its mouth all fish of size will destroy the bait they dont like to waste any time


    Now, when I throw out the worm and it begins to sink, I will feel the bass just lightly pecking my bait. What should I do? Most of the time if I pull it the fish will let go of the worm. I believe its biting the part where there is no hook. Should I just wait for it to start swimming with the bait or what? I seem to get allot of nibbles but no catches. What do you suggest?

    Would be nice to actually see a catch in one of these videos 😉

  20. krazykidxd1 says:

    @ihatebobsaget1989 reel slowly

  21. ihatebobsaget1989 says:

    are you supposed to slowly reel these in or let them sit still?

  22. ihatebobsaget1989 says:

    i just used these for the first time yesterday, caught a huge bass.
