I was fishing the old wacky worm yesterday, and doing pretty well. While I was loosing daylight, and the ability to see my line, I started to retrieve my wacky worm at a fast rate, just to pack it in for the night. Fish on! So, for another 1/2 hour I contiued to use a semi-quick retrieve much like a spinner bait, and it produced. The trick was to keep the wacky underneath the water and not retrieve too fast, but at the same time keep it moving away off of the bottom. The strikes I got were very agressive! Don't know if anyone else has tried it, but please post this and other ways to fish this lure.
