New from Stopper Lures, Cast-A-Weights! These new sinkers were designed specifically for the bass stopper worms. This handy new idea was made up to help the bass stopper worm glide easier through weedy areas. They come in different sizes and there is a size just right for you. These sinkers can be used on many other lures that stopper provides like; the rival spin, or even a Carlisle bobber for some easy blue gill fishing.
How to set it up….
Here is how to rig a bass stopper worm with cast a weight sinker…
-Step one. Tie a barrel swivel to the end of your line.
-Step two. Take the loop at the end of the stopper worm and attach it to the swivel.
-Step three. Pinch the sinker on your line about 18" up from the worm.
How to fish this set up….
One way to fish this set up is just like a Carolina rig. A Carolina rig is basically a weight above the soft plastic. Cast the bass stopper out and let it sink to, or near the bottom. Slowly retrieve, jigging up about 10 inches and back down picking up slack. When lifting up on the worm be ready for a strike. If pulling up and you feel a tug on the line, set the hook. It might be a fish. Another great way to fish this setup is to throw out the Stopper worm parallel to a weed line or drop off, let it sink near the bottom and slowly retrieve the worm. You can vary your retrieve, slow, fast, pauses and fast retrieves.
