How to Fish the Ned Rig in Clear Water

Here's how to cover water with the Ned rig and still catch loads of fish when the bite gets tough.

The Ned 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. This is a deadly clearwater presentation for largemouth and smallmouth, and a complementary piece to Walker Smith's dirty water Ned Rig video.
