Z-Man Floating WormZ
The Z-Man Floating WormZ are constructed from a super durable, incredibly buoyant soft plastic that allows them to float up in the water column. As buoyant as they are durable, Z-Man's Floating WormZ float on the surface like a cork when rigged weightless, providing the most enticing and visible strike target possible. Rigged Texas or Carolina style, they'll rise from the bottom in a tail-up posture, right into the strike zone! In recent years floating worms have been overlooked in favor of newer techniques, but many anglers remain believers of the subtle technique. Anytime bass are roaming shallow water around flooded brush or stickups, the floating worm can be absolutely deadly. The bright colors are typical for floating worms because the technique is very visual and the angler must remain in contact with the bait at all times to detect when a fish picks it up.
Another rigging method that's growing in popularity is the nail weight rig - a super finesse technique that's long been a secret of savvy west coast bass fishermen. Basically, a tungsten nail weight is inserted into the head of the plastic worm which makes the bait sit nose first down on the bottom. With the buoyant nature of the Z-Man Floating WormZ the bait's tail with naturally float upward. When fishing the nail weight rig, slide a rubber o-ring over the worm down to about the sex collar section and thread your wacky rig hook through the worm and under the o-ring. When setup correctly, you'll have a unique finesse rig that creates a side to side wiggle and hop as it is retrieved along the bottom. The Z-Man Floating WormZ are also a great option for Steelhead drifting techniques as they float very nicely through the current.

Plastic fishing baits have been around since you first went digging around in your granddad’s tackle box. You probably learned early on that soft plastic baits caught fish, but that you needed to buy a lot of them because they tore up easily when the fish were biting. Z-Man’s proprietary ElaZtech® material is the toughest soft plastic bait you will find on the market today—period. It stands up to the most aggressive fresh- and saltwater game fish, and remains fishable after several catches. ElaZtech is a remarkable material that is soft and pliable, and as much as 10X Tougher than other traditional soft plastic baits. ElaZtech resists nicks, cuts, and tears better than traditional soft plastic baits. No matter the quarry, ElaZtech soft fishing baits can handle it. These plastic fishing baits can withstand getting hammered time after time by aggressive largemouths, toothy barracudas, and anything else you can get to bite.
A plastic fishing bait is no good if fish can’t see it! Unlike other plastic fishing baits, ElaZtech is a naturally buoyant material that floats off the bottom and creates a more visible target. A more visible target means more strikes and more fish-catching opportunities. With traditional plastic fishing baits, this means going through a lot of soft plastics. ElaZtech baits, however, maintain their fishability despite all the abuse, and also boasts one of the highest fish-per-bait ratings in the industry. To top it off, ElaZtech, unlike most other soft fishing baits, is non-toxic and contains no PVC, Plastisol or Phthalates.
Word of ElaZtech is spreading like wildfire as these soft plastic baits gain traction along the tournament trails. Our new line of flipping & punching soft plastic baits puts ElaZtech to the test in the heaviest cover.
