Post-Spawn and Early Summer Fishing Calls for Texas Rigs

People tend to think of a Texas rig as a weed-proof worm with a bullet sinker, but actually the Texas rig part refers to the method of putting the hook in the worm to make it weedless. You can use Texas rigging for splitshotting, dropshot rigs, flipping, pitching, putting trailers on spinnerbaits and spoons, jigs – just about any technique that makes use of soft plastics can be rigged Texas. The whole point is to keep the point of the hook just under the surface of the bait so it doesn’t catch on every little piece of cover in the lake.
