The Z-Man TRD TicklerZ and ShroomZ jig heads were designed to pair up perfectly with one another.  The TRD lineup of baits from Z-Man was built for ned-rigging; a very finesse profile meant to trigger bites when the fishing is tough.  This bait can be fished at all depths, but works best in shallower water - around 10 feet or less. Pair this up with a 6’9”-7’3” medium light or medium spinning setup.  Many anglers fish this on light line - some opting for a braid mainline (10-20lb test braid), to a fluorocarbon leader (6-10 lb test).

The most common presentation for a ned rig is to very slowly drag it along the bottom around areas that you know fish are living.  Particularly effective around shallow cover such as rocks, gravel, grass, or isolated pieces of shallow wood where fish are living, this combination will trigger both numbers of fish, as well as big bass!
