Hey folks. Glenn May here with BassResource. com,and I want to show you how to Texas Rig aplastic bait. I know there’s a lot of videosout there and they take you through it reallyfast, so I’m going to slow it down a littlebit for you, and show you a couple littlenuances that make it so it’s a lot easierto learn, and a lot easier to do. You’ll bea lot more successful with it. First thing you want to do is take your hookand line it up with the bait. And if you notice,when I do this, look at the eye. It’s buriedin the bait. That’s important, because whenyou take your Texas Rig, your sinker, youwant it to sit flush against the bait itself. So you want that eye buried inside the base. So line it up, take a look. Now look where that hook is supposed to go. Down here, it’s right below that appendage. That’s important. Make note of that. First thing you want to do, see how long theshank is? Look how it is relative to the eye. So it’s a little bit longer than this partof the hook. The front end is a little bitshorter than the long. Sometimes you can justbury the hook all the way up to the angleright there, and then start turning, but becausethis is shorter you want to go about two thirdsof the way in. So, here we just go dead center, right inthe middle, go in about two thirds of theway, about that far, and then turn. Just likethat. And then as you bring it out, you wantto turn the hook around right about here,and let’s bury that eye right in. Just likeso. Okay, let’s line it up again, see where we’reat. Yup. Right about where that appendageis. Right about below that. So that’s a goodplace to keep in mind. Now look at the angle that it goes in. It’salmost straight up and down, perpendicular. So you really, you’ve got to bend this baitalmost straight up like that, and bring thehook point right into it, straight in. Justlike that. There we go. Just like that. Now you got it sticking out like that, sowhat you want to do is you want to push thebait up forward just a little bit, and skinhook that point right back in the bait. Sodo it just like so. There. Now it’s nice andflush. You’re not going to get any weeds oranything. I’m bringing my finger right across. You can see. It’s not going to get hookedup. Nice and straight. That’s how you do it. Takes a little bit of practice, but once you’redone, you’ve done it a few times, it’s reallyeasy. That’s how you Texas Rig a bait. For more tips like that, visit BassResource. com.
