Texas rig, fish in and around weeds, fish it like a jig. In lakes with rocks, wacky rig and drop it straight down between them, I use them with a trailer in the river for smallmouth.
Texas rigged or Wacky rigged with an O ring.
You use a 2/0 to 5/0 worm hook like a Gamagatsu and you thread thru the front through the seam and into the spot where hook shank comes to and out and then thread the point back into worm just a 16th of an inch to make it weedless. Look at how to hook plastic worm weedless articles. This is the best bass bait in the world. I kid you not.

fish it weedless. Size 4 wide gap hook, feed at least an inch and up to 2 inched of the bait over the point of the hook, then pull it out of the side and feed the rest of the hook turn it 180 degrees and measure where the bottom if the hook lines up, bend the worm slightly and reinsert the hook all the thru the bait. Then push 1/16" of the hook back in the bait. The bait should be straight when you are finished. Cast to 1-10 feet of water and let the bait sink - the longer you leave it the better. 90% of the fish come on the fall or in the first 10 feet of the retrieve. Reel it back and try it again. Watch the line closely because with it weightless you don;t really have contact and bites can go undetected.

I use the rubber o-rings and a senko tool to put the o-ring in the correct spot. It seems they work best with the ring a little off center. Then you use a circle hook placed through the 0-ring, not the Senko. Throw out the Senko and the Bass will almost always hit it on the fall.If you feel the hit simple start reeling in the line and a circle hook will set itself. it's as easy as this, good luck!

Hook it right in the middle so the worm sinks like it fell into the lake. You can buy wacky rig o rings that you put in the middle of the worm and it will help the worms last longer. You can use weedless hooks for heavy weeds. When you get into this type of fishing there are many things you can do with nail tip weights to make one end fall faster and tumble the worm or to make it fall deeper. That should get you started. Good luck!
Texas rig it check it out on google. No weight though let it free fall. The worm will have a horizontal fall and will wiggle and the bass go nuts.
