Where to Cast
No matter how you rig them, these worms are deadly around shallow shoreline cover, such as stumps, laydown trees, and patchy grass. Cast right to the cover, not past it. Casts aimed directly at your target are often rewarded with an immediate strike. If they aren't, let the worm sink until it's almost out of sight, then gently twitch your rod tip to make the worm shoot sideways. "Don't overfish it," Yelas cautions. "If you don't get a rise out of a bass after a couple of twitches, reel the worm back in quickly and try another piece of cover."
