How do you fish a floating worm?

Does it float on the surface or you you use something like a Carolina rig to let it float just off the bottom?

I reckon you can fish it on a crig.
I fish Gambler floating worms around spawning fish and work it fast just under the surface.
A light medium heavy Kistler helium 3 with a Lews 7.1 reel spooled with 12lb invizx works for me.

Ken @ KC Injections can make a worm that floats, even with salt. He does great work.

Send me your info and I will send you some of the new Illustrious Action 8" worms and let you see what you think about them. I actually have been using them on an Owner Beast hook with the small belly weight so they will swim down with a unique action. The first couple of times I caught some fish on them and they would come off of the hook when fighting the fish I was happily surprised because my worm would float back up the surface and I could got get it and still use it.

This is a pic Mr. Yates sent me when I asked about there new baits and if they floated. Looks like they float to me. I will be ordering some soon.

Salt makes baits sink, regular plastic floats, just a hook in it and it will start to sink. regular plastic will stand up on the bottom with a jig head straight up. kcinjectionbaits.com
