Wanting to try some Ned rigs for walleye on our upcoming trip. Any body have some advice on colors, jig weights, brands, etc?
I miss Gene TaylorsHeading down tomorrow for a few days. Attached picture is a bag from my box . Will try this Ned technique with these old senkos. For those on the western slope, notice the price tag? That’s how old they are, unopened so what the heck!! Will be in Lund, “boat camping” around floating bathroom before GHB.
They last for ever !What's been said is right on. If Ned rigging you gotta go with the zman products. They are made of something different than your typical soft plastics and will float, which is key in fishing the ned rig correctly. It will give it the appearance of a bait fish or similar feeding off the bottom.
You can still have success from other soft plastics, but in my experience the zman products will out fish anything else on the ned rig. They are designed for it.
FYI, do not put a Zman worm in the same ziplock as another type of soft bait. It will turn to a messy mush. Something about the materials interacting. Weird, but it happens.
Don't feel so ignoant anymore. TRD= The Real Deal .... come on. Took me 2 years to figure out what lol is. This stuff is very hard on old men. BTW before all the orings and such I just put my hook through the plastic worm and did all right. It would be cool to have a boat with nedriggers and hook through the worm to do a comparison. I think a floating worm may make the difference. Thanks Dungee.
Chovycaptain, we’ve used Senkos for years for the Ned Rig (not knowing the coined name for it until a few years ago). The problem is they sink because of the salt content. So, if you stretch them out a bit before putting them on the jig they will float but, not as well as the new Ned Rig stuff. They must stand up when resting on the bottom. Also, using a spot of super glue between the head and the Senko, will help hold it in position.Heading down tomorrow for a few days. Attached picture is a bag from my box .
