Hey, I know that most of you all have more fishing knowladge than I can ever hope to gain. So I'd just like to know what you all think about slider fishing. I know it's a very finesse technique, but I would like some input on how effective slider fishing is in your opinion. Thanks in advance.

"Slider fishing", is a term for a type of jighead. The jighead is designed with an offset shank worm hook so the bait can be rigged weedless but still retain some of the jighead characteristics. Usually it's fished light line and finesse style worms, typically I will use a ribbed style worm. Zipper makes a shakin worm that works really well with these jigheads.

What about the total philosophy?

As far as I can tell the idea is to slowly move the bait along the bottom an impart very little action on the bait. Is that how you fish the slider?

Slider fishing is a light line finese type of fishing with small plastics on hooks with intergral weights. The system was originated by Charlie Brewer. Check out: http://www.fishingworld.com/Slider/

Copy and paste it in your address window. Slider fishing catches just about any fresh water fish including largemouth and smallmouth bass, walleye, crappie, trout, bluegill, etc. Charlie Brewer has a video and book available from the above website.

Sliders are a finesse technique that will produce fish. The Straight tail worm is the key and the design of lead head creates the “sliding action”. Because it is a weed less presentation it has the advantage over WiredWorms in heavy cover, brush and weeds.

But may anglers, when fishing rocky cover, rather use worms with open hooks and a stinger hook in the tail for better hook-up ratio. The straight tailed WiredWorm with its open hooks are more popular than sliders worms in Arizona Lakes.

They also make a slider rod, altho I havent seen one for sale in a few years...I think it was like a 6' spinning rod. I like the worms though, great for fishing golf course ponds when the fish eat up worms like crazy!
