havent used those particular worms, but have used the pink worms and rig em just like ramsey does.

that vid seems like a info-mercial didn't it? i still like to watch steelhead being caught.... good footage under water too.

Oh I'd say it was definitely 100% advertising...

YouTube - berkleyfishing08's Videos

... and I'm ok with that :D . Most advertising doesn't work on me, but this type of advertising has a positive affect on me, there's definitely no better way of convincing me I need their product than to show me it working in a way that I would be using it.

rig it..

rig it..

i rig it the same as in that video. i prefer the shorter ones for jigs - keep a white marabough tied tight to the neck, keeps room for the worm - push the worm right up against it and it really helps to make the marabough stand out at the front of the worm. only allow no more than 2" of the worm to trail behind the bend in the hook. this helps with "short strikes" - the fish only hitting just shy of the hook itself, i'd say 3" max and for my preference thats too long.

gotta get me an underwater vid cam..... would love to get some footage myself like the footage they put on that linkl

fish on!!!

it is a comercial, Buzz is a Berkley pro staffer, as for the pink worm... a steelhead will bite anything, especially a pink worm.. try the black senkos on an overcast or rainy day.. same results

Yeah,I know it's a commercial and today I would have gotten out the "Super Cyber Blaster" and taken aim IF it weren't for the fact that it was posted by a member who isn't affiliated with Berkley. Besides,I learned about how to rig the purdy pink worm...head down,not up. I honestly did not consider the black senkos,thanks!
