The Simple Ned Rig

The Ned Rig has taken the fishing industry by storm with its simple design and ability to get bites no matter where you are. The big key is to not overthink it. 

Take a light jig head with a stick bait and you are ready to catch some fish. Jig sizes will vary depending on the conditions. In windy scenarios or fishing around deeper water, opt for a little heavier jig head. The stickbait size can be adjusted depending on the forage in the body of water you are fishing. 

This is a finesse presentation so use a limber rod with lighter line. Drag it along the bottom, hop it back to the boat, or even slowly swim it. This bait can be effective when working it in a variety of different ways.
