In this on-the-water video from the Bass University Valut, which was remastered in 2021, Mike Iaconelli talks about a different way to fish a Texas rig. With a speed worm (aka swim worm), you can use a paddle tail or cut paddle tail worm to get buzzing action on the top, or a strong swimming action sub-surface, even at slow speeds. Watch as Ike talks about the make-up of a good swim worm and shares tips on ways to rig and fish a speed worm on the surface and under the water.
