Mann's Jelly Worm

15 posts in this topic

Has anyone ever used the Manns Jelly Worm? The ones that are scented with fruit?

OK really, do the bass care if the long "watermelon" or "strawberry" is swimming by? Can they really smell the fruit?

Or is that scent more for the angler than the fish?

Do these worms produce?

Don't know, but you might get sued for saying their name on the internet.

They are issuing cease and desist letters for those making an umbrella rig and using the term "alabamama rig" in their description. I got one a few years ago for making chatterbaits, while they weren't the exact thing I posted a picture of the lure calling it a chatter style lure and I got a letter saying the name "chatter" was trademarked and therefore could not be used. They never told me I couldn'y make it, I just couldn't use the name. A friend of mine got a letter from Strike King, he got a mold from lure craft that made a very close copy of the rage craw, if fact lure craft had to take to mold off their site and can no longer sell it. So it isn't just Manns. As far as the Jelly worm concept, when I started bass fishing these were the worms to have and worked really well and still do. The fruit smell is for both angler and fish, the flavor also represents the color of the worm, the flavor or scent mask oders that are known to repel fish like sun tan lotion or tobacco, it is no different than an angler putting some megastrike on their lure.

They catch bass you can bet on that. I think the color is more important than the scent, bass are just not scent feeders. But I think it might make them hang onto a bait a little while longer. They do work and smelling those things all day long made me hungry!

I use Mann's 8" grape Jelly and it's a great producer. Can't say say it's fruity.

They are good worms and I've caught fish on them but because of all the threats made by Tammy Poss (the wife of the inventor of The Alabama Rig) to young kids on the internet I decided that I won't be buying anymore Manns products.

The Jelly worm was a big part of my bass fishing back in the day. I was happy to see them come back out. I have a plastic sponsor and I must say that the Jelly worm will catch fish! Blue Streak is spot on. I like the black and grape colors alot. I told my wife that they should make a men's after shave of worm sents,and call it the worm after shave! Not the garlic sent ! LOL

This is too funny.

Back in 1972 when I was a young bassmaster, there were not a lot of choices for plastic worms, or not in Massachusetts at any rate. These Mann's worms were available.

With the tremendous number of brands and styles available nowadays, I hadn't wondered whether the classic Jelly worm was still available or not.

I do remember that that the LM in a 300 acre pond did enjoy picking up the heavily-scented 9" Jelly worms in black and grape. I don't doubt that they still would.

My understanding is its the inventor doing the suing not Mann's. Mann's just bought the rights to make them under there name. I could be wrong but thats what I have heard. In any event jelly worms work as good today as they ever have. I believe it was because of the Jelly Worms fruit flavor that we have ten million scents on the market today. The bass ate them up like candy and the next thing you know the Attractant, Scent market got started.

Wasn't it the Jelly Worm that Paul Elias was using along with a crankbait when he broke the weight record.

I stil use Mann's Jelly Worms.

They FLOAT great, so if you fish them on a texas-rig, the tail of the worm floats up behind the weight, looking like a creature feeding on the bottom.

Weightless, the ten-inch ones look like a snake coming across the waters, as you twitch it on top of the water's surface.
