3 Ned Rig Tricks For Winter Fishing!

January 4, 2021 31 No Comments


The Ned Rig is amazing in the Winter Time! Fishing in the cold can be tough, especially if you’re second guessing your lure choice. With new brands piling onto the Ned Rig bandwagon every day, its hard to know which baits to focus on and how to dial them in for cold water fishing. In today’s video Tim explains how to adjust your weight, how to choose the right ned bait, and when to fish these presentations. 

On the surface, ned rig fishing is very simple. Grab a ned bait, grab a light jighead, throw it out and try not to move it. As the technique has morphed the last few years so has its ability to catch fish in a variety of conditions. Focusing in on details like the weight of the head, whether or not your bait floats, how much it moves underwater when you shake it, are all key pieces of the puzzle. While the Z Man Finesse TRD remains the gold standard, there are so many other amazing baits that will help you get bit in changing conditions. 

Below you’ll find links to a handful of Tim’s favorite baits. He’s included his top 2 colors for each bait, and even included a brand new Salamander ned bait that you should check out. He’s also included his favorite heads and the gear he uses to fish them. All of the links go directly to Tackle Warehouse where you can see detailed photos and descriptions of each item.
