    for a Texas rig you will need a offset worm hook. put the point through a curly tailed worms nose, and the slide it up to the hook eye. next pull the worm semi tight, and put the point in the worms belly so it comes out its back and sets right up on the back. you don't want any kinks or bends in the worm.
    for a Carolina rig slip on a bullet sinker so that the nose is pointing forward. next tie on a swivel, and then a 6-12 inch mono leader. then tie on a Texas rigged worm. that's your Carolina rig.

    catch a big one!

      Google "Carolina Rig" and you will see lots of pictures and instructions. The Texas Rig is virtually the same thing except it doesn't have a leader, the bullet sinker slides all the way down to the plastic worm. Both rigs are effective for bass. Tieing a good knot is important too. If you don't know how to tie a good monofiliament knot, google that too. Techniques vary with conditions but my favorite overall technique is to cast the rig and let it sink to the bottom. When the last ripple has disappeared from the surface of the water, slowly turn your reel crank about three turns. Wait 10 seconds and turn it again. Continue this until it is time for another cast. The best casts, start out just off the shoreline rushes or brushy cover on the bank and slowly slide out to deeper water. If you feel a slight tug, cross the bass' eyes with a big jerk of the rod. It takes quite a pull to force the hook all the way through the body of the plastic worm and into the fish's jaw. Best of luck to you both.

        Thank yall fellas. Ill take all the advice i can get. I just never have used artificial bait except for the occasional rooster tail. I know live bait and ive alwayd fished it the same way i was taught but i want to teach him all i can even if it means i got to have some new tricks. Hes the oldest of 5 so we dont get much time one on one time. If you have any other tips id be glad to hear them.

          Nothing wrong with live bait either, especially fishing with youth. I probably have $500 in plugs and plastic, but when I'm with my kids i usually bring live bait. Much easier for them to watch a bobber than to work a jig. My son is now 10 and is starting to use more plugs and jigs but we live on a 20 acre lake and fish about 2 or 3 times a week so he has lots of experience. My daughter is 9 and doesn't fish as much so she still sticks exclusively to live bait.
