DIY Wacky Rig/Neko Rig Sleeves
Updated: Apr 14, 2020
With the Shelter In Place order I think we're all going a little stir crazy so I thought I'd share a tip that has saved me a lot of money in plastics! Like everyone else, I used the traditional O-rings to Wacky Rig and Neko Rig plastic worms and even used clear plastic straws that I cut down. Everything changed when I ran across a video Bassmaster Elite Pro Takahiro Omori did on what he uses to Wacky Rig his worms. I immediately went to my local tackle shop Coyote Bait & Tackle and asked the owner Denise if she's seen the tool he was using, unfortunately she hadn't. I really wanted to use this set up so I began search all over the internet to find it. Here's a quick video on what I'm using and how I'm using it.
I have 3 different sizes; 5/16", 1/4", and 3/16" of the silicon tubing, but I mainly use the 1/4" and 3/16.
5/16" for 7" Senkos
1/4" for 5" & 6" Senkos and Daiwa SV Fats
3/16" for thinner worms
The tool is actually a medical tool called a Child size Nasal Speculum
The Silicon Tubing ranges from $14-17 and comes in 10' rolls so they will last forever. The Nasal Speculum is $5.49 so extremely inexpensive.
In the video I show another trick for Texas Rigs that's a must have when flipping Senkos!
As always, hope this helps!
