An idea to keep Texas rigged worms from slipping down
« on: April 04, 2017, 06:53:52 AM »
Before doing the following, put your bullet sinker on the line unless your using the worm weightless  (jerk worm)

1. I start by pushing a loop of line through the hook and I make a simple slip knot with the loop


2.  I put the hook through the loop


3. I tighten the loop with the worm already rigged

Sweet!  (y)

I use a barrel swivel and get the same affect.

Lace the sinker on the main line  followed by the swivel.
Attach main line to the hook.
Nose hook bait to the hook and bring up to line tie, attach the other end of the barrel swivel to the hook and pull main line taught.
Skin hook the bait
Wahlah!

I prefer the barrel swivel idea over the line loop. The last thing I want to do is compromise my line integrity by having it go through another ordeal before being secured to the hook.

I wonder if the tag end of the line could be used to pull this off so that the main knot and main line are unaffected. It would pretty much have no more (if not less) affect on the main line as a drop weight does.

I use a home made clip like the parasite clip.  I have 2 finish nails in a board.  I wind the wire around one making a closed circle.  I fold the wire around the second one and back to the circle.  Snip it off with a pair of dikes and it's ready to go.

These pics aren't clear but I think you might get the idea.



If you're too busy to go fishin' you're too busy.

Thats a pretty cool idea JigMan.  (y) How do you place it on the hook to hold the bait? Can we see a pic please?

I don't have a pic handy and the boat is in the shop having the trailer brakes checked.

You put the weight on the line.  Pass the line through the circle.  Put the bait on the hook.  Slip the clip over the hook.  The clip can be bent to accommodate different bait and hook  sizes.
