How to Fish the Ned Rig in Clear Water

The Neg Rig finesse fishing system consists of a small jighead paired with stick bait. Wired2Fish’s Ryan DeChaine tackles a tough clear water smallmouth bass bite with the Z-Man Finesse T.R.D. stickbait coupled with a Finesse ShroomZ jighead to bring the bite alive. Although this system can be fished a lot of different ways, casting and covering water with a do-nothing swimming approach proved deadly in the gin clear water.
