Jack Wingate Discusses Do-Nothing Fishing for Bass – An Uncomplicated, Simple and Productive Method

Click to enlargeEditor’s Note: According to Jack Wingate, “Do-Nothing fishing requires no skill on the part of the angler. If the sportsman can make a cast, let the bait hit the bottom, and wind it back, he can catch bass.”

To rig a Do-Nothing rig, Wingate suggests using 20-pound-test line. “Pass the line through a 1-ounce, lead, Click to enlargetorpedo-shaped sinker, and attach it to a barrel swivel. Then attach 12-to 14-pound test leader from the barrel swivel to the Do-Nothing worm. We use the lighter leader to give the worm more mobility and to allow you to save your swivel and lead if your worm gets hung-up and breaks off. Very seldom do you get your lead hung up. But you may hang your Do-Nothing worm.” The Do-Nothing worm generally is a small 4-inch worm with two hooks in the bait. The worm is attached to a small nylon line. “The hook should be forced back up in the worm so only 1/16-inch of the hook is sticking out of the worm,” Wingate recommends. “I use pliers to reset the hooks, which only takes a minute. Then the worm rarely will hang, but the bass will get stuck.My favorite colors for Seminole are black, blue and watermelon. The difference in fishing this worm and the other plastic worms on the market is that you never feel the ‘tap-tap’ on the line to indicate a strike. When the fish hits, you get a steady pressure on the line. When you feel that pull, the bass has already swallowed the bait Click to enlargeand has it embedded in its mouth.”
