Weedless Ned Rig (new concept to me)

Recommended Posts

I think the original Ned rig is meant to be dragged flat along the bottom.   It think it would excel in clear lakes with no weeds.  I know bass will eat a deadstick senko off the bottom, so this rig would add some movement, too.

I would go with 21xdc's rig, because it is weedless and there are lots of weeds where I fish.  Right now I peg a sinker to an offset worm hook, so I can drag the worm through the weeds.

Around here the purist Ned guys use an itty bitty #4 crappie hook on a 1/16 oz head.   It is so small it hardly gets hung up.

 

They are much stouter of heart than I.  I'd be afraid the hook would open up when I tried to get the fish out of the weeds or tulles.

Mark we don't have any vegetation in our lakes.  Most have very little standing timber.  Man made brush cover is what we mostly have. 

 

BTW I did blind sow a 6.5 a couple of years ago on a Ned but I was using a #2 hook instead  of a #4.  (I'm not a purist and will go up to 3/0 on some of them.)
