Modifying Plastic Worms

Recommended Posts

Was wondering if anyone modified plastic worms straight out of the package.Turning an ordinary Curl tail into something Like a Kinami(Yamamoto) Kut Tail worm.

Anyone ever take a regular Curly tail worm about the same length as the Kut tail,and lay the Kut Tail on top as a pattern and Trim the tail accordingly.

I know a Culprit or any other worm(Berkley,Zoom ect) wont be the exact same as each is poured with different materials,salt ect,but anyone think this train of thought would work in making your own Kut Tail worms? If so,May save a bunch of money on trimming your own VS Hunting for the Real Yamamoto Kut Tail worms.

Thoughts?

I keep one of those plastic retractable box cutters in my box. There's all sorts of stuff you can do with soft, flexible plastic. Some of those creature baits are just asking for it.

I like to take a 6" stik-o, cut it in half, and put it on a t-rig. If the bass are in the mood for it they will tear it up.

Funny you bring this up. I made my version of a cut tail from some ribbon tail worms Tuesday evening. I had run out of beavers and only had worms in the right color. They wanted a smaller bait. When I cut down the worms everything was good again. Modifying plastics is a great way of adapting to conditions and saving money.

haven't done a whole lot of worm modifications but i think your idea is cool. i cut slits longways down the flaps on a brush hog. mainly i do a little carving on some of my plastic craws, for the sake of detail and confidence. here are a couple paca craws side by side. i just cut the claws out a little more. 3TAFx.jpg?1

With my split shot rigs from the 70's we take a long sewing needle and run a #2 or #4 sbnelled hook from the lump on a plastic worm to the head pulling the line down the middle of the work. Then tie the snelled hook to our line wit ha split shot 12'' above the worm. If were in a boat we run up to the weeds and back off till the weeds disapear and anchor the boat. We cast into the weeds and fish it very slow.

If were from shore i look for a drop off and fish it there the same way slow.
