Using the Zero for shaky
« on: September 17, 2015, 09:19:49 AM »
I got my butt handed to me yesterday by a guy using Zero worms.  I bought some but can't get them the way I want on the jig heads that I have.  This guy has an altered mold that has 2 bait keepers.  They look funny when he has them rigged but they sure were effective.  I finally had to use some of his heads to get the baits to hold.

What do you guys use to hold that type of worm.

This keeper is small and works incredibly well for the 3X material baits.

You can use your favorite screw lock type keeper hook with these baits, just use your lighter to heat up the keeper and it will go on like butter.

Well I have been experimenting with several head designs and keeper options.  One that I really liked has gone to Davy Jones' Locker.  The keeper was on top of the worm and I had a good fish that got off.  When I checked the bait the worm (skin hooked) was still covering the hook.  My thoughts are that the keeper is what the fish had hold of and that just isn't a good deal.

As for putting the Elaz Tech worms on a screw lock, the lake I fish is so windy that a lighter just wouldn't work much of the time to heat the screw.  I had an idea and heated up a small drill bit.  I slid it into the worm and make a "pilot hole".  I laid it down for a couple of hours to be sure it was cooled like it would be at the lake.  Wala the screw went into the worm with no problem at all.

So I'm down to screw locks and my friend's modified heads.  Time will tell which works the best.

Good idea about prepping a keeper hole. (y)
