The Floating Worm is a inherently buoyant soft plastic worm designed to be fished right under the water's surface. Gambler poured the 7" floating worm with a very buoyant plastic that makes it have a much slower rate of fall over traditional plastic worms. The floating worm has been a mainstay in bass fishing since the very beginning as it offers a finesse presentation that is effective for spooky fish up in shallow water. Anglers typically turn to the floating worm from the spawn until late summer when bass are found in ultra-shallow water around bushes and grass. Fish in super shallow water are some of the most spooky and will react negatively to baits that intrude upon their space, however, the subtle and quiet floating worm presents a non-threatening annoyance they just cannot leave alone. Fishing the floating worm is really easy. Rig the worm completely weightless on a light wire worm hook - either Texas rigged or wacky style - and cast or skip the worm around shallow water cover where bass may be roaming. Retrieve the worm with methodical twitches of the rods tip allowing it to slowly fall a few inches below the surface each time before repeating. The bright colors are common for floating worms as most strikes are detected visibly - just keep an eye on the worm and if you can no longer see it, it's likely a fish has eaten it and is swimming away.
The Gambler Floating Worm measures 7" in length and comes 12 per pack.
