Ribbed worm is very versatile. It gives fish a different look than your standard stick worm/pachinko. It can be fished wacky style with or without a weight.
My favorite ribbed worm technique is Texas rigged on a 3/O hook for docks as it is skips extremely well.
Also sometimes I will trim it down an inch or so and throw it on a 2/O hook when fish want a smaller profile.
