Using a rubber worm with a lead cast you must first understand how it fells in the water. The lead cast will allow the bait to travel to the bottom. When the lure is at the bottom you will know because the line goes slack. Next is to lift the line up and let it rest on the bottom again. Do this twenty-five times to really get the feel of the weight and lure. When casting for real the practice will come in helpful because the Bass will look at the lure on the bottom and strike at it when it is on the rise up or down. When you feel the line get tight with a sharp pull back with the pole set the hook and reel in the fish.
