    MJ rig..... Timmy Horton Outdoors

    Watching Timmy Horton Outdoors and he was using something he called an MJ rig... A Texas rigged worm (yum dinger) with a screw lock willow blade at the end of the worm... Anyone use one?

    something like that was used in one of the recent classics i believe but someone i cant remember. think it was a senko with a blade on the back. worked pretty good far as i can tell. bassmasters also did a piece on the bait after the classic

    Keith Poche used a similar rig with a willow blade and a Senko in the 2012 classic at the Red River.
    That's the only time I've heard of a similar rig...

    Here is what he used...

    I have caught a few fish on them but my problem is losing the spinners when I catch a fish or set the hook. I was using the Yamamoto Senko and they may be softer but just about everytime I would set the hook or catch a fish the spinner would be gone.

    I was about to ask how often these are lost? Kind of high in change to lose them? Just curious

    Use a small swivel like on a dropshot rig. The MJ Rig will twist your line. Believe me,
    Why do people fish, some say people fish to get fish, this is obviously false

    Yes, use a blade with a quality swivel, this technique is crazy good. My buddies are giving me a little bit of a hard time for doing a show on it.

    It is the best slow technique I have seen for fishing sparse vegetation. The bass really seem to find it. I look forward to fishing it in brushpiles this summer. Thanks for the kind words on the show.

    I've been wondering how it would work here on LOZ with all the brushpiles.

    Timmy to you fish it like you would a traditioinal weightless senko? Thinking it would be good around the docks and brush on Lake of the Ozarks.

    ^This, I made some after attending the classic last year. No doubt you'll get bites, but you better have a box full of blades and screw locks!!

    That blade seems to hold onto the bait just fine, bite after bite.

    I played with this last summer after seeing poche use it in the classic. It was a neat rig but I think i may have been using to large of a blade for the worm. I used a senko worm and made my own screw lock for the blade on a swivel to attach to and just threaded the screwlock into the senko. Then id cast out and reel it in just under the surface almost like a buzz bait. The cool part about it was the weight on the back of the worm like that you could stop reeling and the worm would fall backwards away from you. And I did manage to get several decent fish to strike it. The problem was when the blade was turning the worm was spinning as well. which meant the hook was also spinning. So I didnt get many hookups at all cause the hook was never in the right spot when i hauled back on the rod. Anybody that's used this found a way to keep the worm from spinning while your reeling in.

    One of Poche's sponsors Humdinger Spinnerbaits started selling a few different powerspins here locally. I seem to lose them or sacrifice a senko on each fish I catch.

    I would use Hitchhiker Trailers and put some glue on it before screwing it into the bait. And use interchangeable blades from SecretWeaponLures
