Ned rig set up
« on: March 18, 2017, 10:21:34 AM »

I had enough success with the Ned rig last year thar I'm going to add a dedicated rod for it to my arsenal.
I'm thinking a ml light spinning with a 7' rod and a fast tip. Fluorocarbon 6 or 8# line.   I'm curious as to what the rest of you have found success with.

I haven't nedded (?) yet, but bought some heads and baits this winter, and am eager to try it out. Sounds like that set-up would work. I don't spin with floro, so it'll be mono for me...good luck

Tired it on my lake last fall for 30 minutes,  Nothing.  Picked up the Drop Shot and caught fish.   Guess I am going to have to do like I did with Drop Shot and Jig fishing.   Leave all the other rods and home and take a couple rigged with the Ned.    I know they work.

I also picked some up this winter. If anyone can share more on line weights and type(I also will not floro with spinning equipment), and different set ups it would be great. I will be fishing for smallmouth if that matters? Anyone fish it later in the summer out deep with these?

I most often use braid with a fluoro leader.  Do you guys not use fluoro on spinning due to line twist or what?

Rick

Can you post a picture if you setup ? any bait type, I would like to see what kind of hook/ jig to use and how the bait is on the hook. is the ned rig the same thing Jessie Wiggins was throwing earlier in the year on the elite series?

I use z-man jig heads and TRDs.   Some guys use 1/2 a senko / stick bait and a mushroom head jig.
  I use 3/32 or 1/16 weights most of the time.  I will use 1/8th weight if it's windy and / or I'm deep.

I've been using light mushroom-head jigheads with a short perfect plastics stick or half a regular stick worm. 6 pound test P-Line HALO or Fluorocarbon on a 7 or 7 1/2 foot medium light spinning rig. I catch bass on it and the walleye often seem to like it on some lakes too.

I don't have a lot of line twist problems most of the time with Fluorocarbon on spinning reels. After a cast, I always grab the line just in front of the reel and pull it tight after flipping the bail before starting my retrieve. I do it now without really thinking about it or noticing I'm doing it most of the time. Seems to help reduce line twist quite a bit.

The Ned rig isn't one of my top rigs yet. I'm still working it into my fishing 'arsenal.' I still catch more bass on other rigs but some of the really good bass anglers are using the Ned rig quite a bit.

It has a place in your arsenal for some approaches I think but like any rig sometimes anglers get too caught up in a rig, using it when something else might work better. A recent spring I fished with a number of anglers on Lake St. Clair who are big Ned rig fans (some of them know him personally I believe). I did much better on bedding and prespawn smallmouth bass spot-casting and snapping various tube lures. They had some questions for me as to how I was able to do that when the tube 'has been seen to much by too many bass!'

I think those days it was more important to get your lure close to exactly where the smallmouth bass were holding than what exactly 'finesse' technique you were using. I was able to get in front of more bass faster with my tubes. That's all, I think.

But if I find a bass that doesn't seem to want to bite a tube well I might pick up a Ned rig to follow up though I'm probably more likely to choose a drop shot or Neko rig first at the moment.
