Jelly Worm

Recommended Posts

I still use them. I've had the best luck with the 8" blueberry and the 12" strawberry.

What I like best about them is your hands don't smell like week old buzzard puke after handling them.

These were texas rigged on a 4/0 and 6/0 Owner twist lock.

with a 6 to 8 inch worm, i tend to just use a 2/0 hook. i have noticed that many use a much bigger hook than i do. just from my on personal experience, the smaller hook you can get away with the better action your worm has, and the more strikes you get. a 12 inch worm with some diameter to it, i will typically use a 4/0. as for the colors of 6 inch jelly worms that i used. i used black grape probably more than the rest.

I have caught more bass on a 6 inch Jelly Worm than any other lure. Black Grape is my favorite color. I use to buy them in the 100 packs. Also liked Blueberry and Motor Oil. I Texas rigged then exclusively usually with a 3/16th ounce weight and 2.0 Eagle Claw 95JB. Used a 5.5 foot heavy action rod , 14 lb Stren and crossed their eyes Roland martin style.

Blackberry 8" jellyworm is about the only worm my dad uses and it still catches a ton of fish today. 1/4oz bullet weight and a 4/0 wide gap hook is how I rig them. They're one bait that I probably don't use enough honestly. I've got some 12" blackberry and they're a good bait to get a big bite.

I do remember and when I saw that on BPS catalog, it brought back the memories...I meant to get some but haven't gotten to it yet. I used to like the purple one. Put some Smucker's to entice more bites, jk :)
