A Texas rig is usually fished in contact with the bottom with either a hopping motion or dragged. The same can said for a jig, but avid bass anglers swim jigs with conviction and produce huge bags.

If you’re fishing grass, tickling the tops with a Texas-rigged worm is a great trigger and doesn’t get hung up.
