Most anglers know that a lead-head jig used with a soft plastic bait is a deadly combination. However, sometimes the lead ends up being a little too heavy or a little too light for certain fishing scenarios. One effective method to quickly customize the weight of your offering to match the conditions you are fishing is to replace the lead-head jig with an R-type worm hook and a separate, removable split shot in front of the soft plastic bait. This allows you to instantly fine tune your bait without wasting time retying. As a bonus, the removable split shot has protruding "ears," which give the bait a slightly different swimming action on the retrieve. Plus, the whole rig is weedless thanks to the shrouded R hook. Try it, and I think you'll find yourself catching more fish.
