I came upon a listing on eBay on Tassel Tail Worms from Culprit and needed some input before I buy. I know a couple of guys swears by these baits, but has anyone else tried or used these worms and have any luck with these?

I've used these the past two years...T-rig and also on a ball-head jig.  Not shaky, but swimming it.  Actually caught all the bigger bass (20-23") on this worm with the ball-head jig.  I didn't really care to flip them.  Their tails are thin and very active.  They will tear easily.  I like them, and even trail them occassionally on my swim jigs.  As I said, thin, soft and active tails.

Culprit Original worms have been my favorite bait for bass for years until their new Tassel Tails came out.  The tassel tails have this wave-like action that looks so real compared to other plastic worms.  I Texas-rig these worms, and if the bites are slow, I let it sit and let the tails do the work. I also swim the Tassel Tails like Papa does when they are more active.   These baits are hard to find, and when you mentioned you found them on eBay, the baits and shipping are cheaper there than anywhere I've found so far.   They are definitely worth buying!  8-)

Most lakes I fish in has stained water, so the colors that works best for me are June Bug, Chili Pepper, Tequila Shad, and Watermelon colors.  For clear waters, I use Redberry and Blueberry colors.  Good Luck!

I actually think the color I had the best results on is called 'Blue Shadow'.  I'll have to go to the boat and dig them out.  Looking at their catalog, I don't see this offered in the worm, just in the lizard.  I still have a few bags left of the worm.  I got them as samples.  Starting to look like I won't get anymore, tho.  I've also used the 'Blueberry'.

Got my Tassel Tail worms yesterday morning and gave them a try.  The bites were tough to get, but still managed to catch 3 keepers on the tassel tails to my brother's 1.  These worms did all the work when I dead-sticked them on the bottom.   My brother fished with everything but these worms with no luck until he finally tied on my Chili Pepper colored tassel tail and caught his keeper on the third flip.  Will head out again tomorrow to a different lake to test these again

Though I'm not enamored by its appearance, the culprit tassel-tail is a dynamite lure.

I always felt that Culprit was one of the better worm companies out there. I bought a couple of packs of the " Blueberry" color Tassel-tails a few years ago and they worked well in clear water. I really have a lot of confidence in them.

Update....Saturday, we went to a clear water lake and caught 5 keepers, 4 on the tassel tails and one on the original Culprit worm.  They bit on the Redberry and Blueberry colors in deeper water on a dropoff.  Today, we went to Ohio and fished a lake with very stained water in some development channels since the rest of the lake was muddy. Caught 3 all on a Watermelon Pepper tassel tail worms.  We are gaining more and more confidence with these and is our go-to baits, and Spring isn't even close to being here yet!   So far, the place with the best deal and service I've found is on eBay.

I've had decent luck with them when the bite was hard to come by.  I have been able to find them at my local Walmart, but only in the JUNEBUG color.  I've fished them Texas-rigged, and produced the only two fish of the day for my fishing party.  Not to bad either, one was just under 22 inches, other was nearly 23 inches.  Was only able to keep the second one due to a 18"-22" slot.   :'(
