Casting LC Wabblers

I know that this lure is designed and at its best for trolling and not casting. Nevertheless, with the limited trout season days left and fish moving in closer to shore, casting might attract a fish. How would you alter the rig for casting - smallest size, no swivels, shorter worm/streamer line, garden worm vs nightcrawler, etc?

LC Wabblers are extremely light; not ideal for casting. Maybe consider using a Little Cleo(or something similar) as is, with hooks; or remove the hooks and add a swivel to each side if you are looking to use in place of LC Wabbler ahead of your offering as an attractor.
Just an idea, best of luck.

My experience is that wabblers will cast ok if your line is light enough. I have used them casting and retrieving like that before on a few occasions and some caught trout. It can work well when you can't troll tight enough to shore because large blow downs go out far from shore. I always use a swivel at both ends of a wabbler because the holes will cut your line. Lost what would have been my best brookie near the canoe once because I didn't use a swivel. Happened in 1998 and I can still see that fish in my dreams. Good luck.

Went today.

After trying Panther Martins, Kastmasters, Little Cleos, and a Wabbler with a streamer, the only brookie caught was casting a Wabbler with crawler. Casting went ok Until I got snagged and lost the Wabbler.

Shorten the leader between the spoon and the hook to about 1 foot (I've seen some guys who use this length all the time), and use a 1-2inch piece of worm. You wont set records for distance, but it will cast and you want to be closer to shore. Also a good time of year for a float, ice jig and piece of worm.
