The Wobble Head Worm Rig is just such a discovery.
To look at it you would question whether a fish would run from it rather than aggressively striking it. But the truth is many a professional fisherman still use this rig and win tournaments in the south during the hottest months of the year.
As the name says, the metal piece at the top causes the entire rig to wobble through the water. This rhythmic wobble creates aggressive strikes and is endless fun for any lake or pond.
For the disabled fisherman, the retrieve is super simple. Throw it and reel it..that's it! Not too fast and not too slow but a nice methodical retrieve can cause vicious hits. If you are using a medium/fast tipped rod, the fish will virtually set the hook for you, which is nice.
I grew up with these plastic worms. They were the king of the fishing industry until Mr. Twister put a big dent in their reign with advent of the curled tail worm.
The Chairman of our board at Handicapped Outdoors was using a wobble head rig just a few weeks ago at his home and landed two fish around the 3-4 pound class within an hour or so of fishing with it...it works!
We have a local fishing shop that sells these. You won't find them in a the super stores for outdoors. You can order them Here online.
There are even ways to fish it weedless or add a trailer hook to it. See the diagrams below.
