Z Man Fishing Products - The Ned Meek

Ned Rig fishing has taken the fishing industry by storm over the past few years and one of my favorite variations is what I call the “Ned Meek.” With the Ned Meek I use the Z-Man TRD MinnowZ, I use this because it is the best bait to imitate shad. The thing about shad is that they don’t lay on the bottom and they are always moving. It’s a great vertical technique for dropping down and holding the bait about a foot off the bottom and teasing fish into bitting.

It’s also great for casting out and tight lining which is when you pop the rod and hold it tight and let the bait pendulum back to the boat. If you want to get out there during the colder months of the year and you have a lake with a bunch of shad in it and hungry bass, give this rig a try.
