Im hearing soooo much about it....anyone fish it more than often? Im thinking on setting up a weedless one. Is it the best Finesse bait out there for these hot summer days for these sluggish bass? Thanks- Tight Lines Fellas

I wish it wasn’t so popular now. Nobody used to throw it... or at least no one used to talk about it. It’s a great finesse rig for several situations.

I throw the Neko and the Ned rig when things are tough.

I started throwing the neko rig and have had success. Switch to drop shot, but need to change it up again and return to neko.

The bite is always tough for me, so I throw it alot. laugh

Rather than an exposed hook, I mostly use a Texas-Rigged variation. I've heard it referred to as a Chicken Rig.

I am no expert but have used this alot in the past year. I used it 4 weeks ago on Bridgeport in really muddy water when I couldn't get a bite on other stuff. I got lots of bites on a bubble gum pink senko rigged as a Texas-rigged Neko (chicken rig). I was flipping around cover on the bank just like I would flip any other soft plastic. I use a very light nail weight. Actually, take a 1/16 nail weight and cut it in half. This gives just enough weight to make it fall in a slow twisting erratic pattern.
