When it comes to the fishing bait worms, there is one way of rigging them that is much more effective than any other. I know what you're thinking. It's just using a worm as bait, how difficult can it be, right? Well, it's not that fishing with worms as bait is difficult, as you know it's quite simple. The issue is that there is a way that is much more effective than any other.

When most anglers use worms as fishing bait, what do they do? Yep, they take their hook and attempt to "thread" their worm onto said hook. In most cases this hook is pretty large so that not too much of the worm is hanging off for the fish to "nibble" on. This way of rigging a worm for fishing bait is the basic way that anglers have been doing it forever.

There are a couple of problems with the above scenario. First, your worm (or bait) ends up looking anything but natural. As a matter of fact your fishing bait ends up looking like some sort of worm ball, rather than a real worm. Secondly when a large hook is employed it is extremely visible to the fish and makes fishing for smaller mouthed fish all but impossible.

Neither of the above scenarios are a problem with smaller, more inexperienced fish. These fish will still bite your modified worm ball, but hooking them can be extremely difficult. And what about larger and more experienced fish? They will tend not to even bother with this type of offering. They "been there done that" so to speak. Not to mention the fact that fish rarely become large by being dumb and not paying attention to such things.

So what is the alternative to these types of situations? The first thing to consider is that when using worms for fishing bait, your worm should look like a worm. This means that it should be outstretched, just like it appears in nature. The most effective way to fish with live worms is by using a set of pre-tied gang hooks. These hooks allow live worms to be presented in an outstretched and natural manner, which makes a ton of difference in bite rates.

Gang hooks are simply a pair of small fishing hooks tied back to back. This allows live bait (especially worms) to be presented in a totally natural and effective manner. These hooks are, without a doubt, the most effective way to fish with live worms. They also work quite well with synthetic worms, such as Berkley Power and Gulp worms. The next time that you use worms as fishing bait, give these great fishing hooks a try.
