I have had great success with Berkley power worms in both 7 and 10inch. Can't say I have tried that color before though. I have had the best results with "motor oil" and "watermelon candy". My only complaint with them is that they are very soft and they tear very easily.

I havent used that color but have used the 7 inch power worms. I really like them. Nice action and the fish really do hold on for a long time!

I have used them, they work well, but my fish up here prefer red shad and tequila sunrise.

I've got some of these. The colors work well around my area (Indiana), especially stained but not muddy water. But like mentioned above, they seem to tear easily. But hey, I'll take a torn worm for a nice battle with a 4+ bass anyday!

 

Good luck

I love using power worms this time of year.I buy the 7"in blue fleck and black color. I will fish them weightless or i or i will use a worm weight.Try varying the worm weight size at times for a different fall rate.

I saw that color the other night at walmart. Imma pick some up next time Im in town. I wanna try motor oil. Iv heard it almost changes to a chartreuse color under water. Anybody know this to be true?

Those work well t rigged. I fish them alot but i like the solid blue colors better.

 

Thanks for the tip! I always fish my fake crawlers texas rigged/weedless, i just use a split shot weight instead.

Review: Just got back from fishing with these and got decent results, however not what I was expecting.

 

Caught 2 nice bass, 15 inches and 17 inches, and the rest were babies. Caught 6 in total using these. Fished them like a fake crawler (let it sink, pull up, reel in the slack) with a small split shot texas rigged.

I use that color in murky water. The same thing happens with all red/chartreuse tail'd baits I use around here, bluegills and small bass pick at them and annoy the crap out of me. But they do catch fish. 

 

My suggestion is to fish them a little faster if you want just the bigger fish, go for more of a reaction bite. Use a 1/4-3/8 bullet weight and T-rig them. Fish them real quick, lift and fall, lift and fall, lift and fall. When you feel the thump, let him take about a foot of line and then cross his eyes!

Could I use them with a split shot? Not a fan of bullet weights at all. Also, i'll try moving them faster next time. Thanks!

Sure, I would suggest moving the splitshot a little closer to the worm, it will help you fish it faster. 

 

Have you seen the bull-shots? They are a pinch on bullet weight. Pretty much a combo between a splitshot and a bullet weight, you might like them. 

 

Tackle warehouse carries them, not sure where else.

AJ, could you tell us more about the body of water you're fishing? Is it the Grand River mentioned in your profile?

 

What is the coloration of the water? What type of cover? Vegetation?

 

Very important is to find out what type of bait fish or juvenile panfish are in this body of water?

 

When considering the type of lures to throw, you should really be trying to mimic the food source of these bass?

Sure, the place I fish most of the time, and what I have been fishing lately is a man made gravel pit/lake that connects to the grand river. Go look in my introduction post, there is a link via google maps that shows you. The water is pretty murky, with a lot of cover and it's pretty weedy when fishing from shore (what I mostly do) A lot of bait fish as i see them swimming near shore all the time, and i've also caught a lot of panfish out of this spot as well. I am trying to mimic the food source, but i've found that fake crawlers work much better than fake baitfish/minnows.

Good  answers. Thanks.  So now I understand that your working with murky water, which will dictate the types and coloration of lures that will give you the best chance at catching Ol' Bucketmouth.

 

That firetail worm you picked up is perfect for murky water!  Contrasting colors in your lures should give off the best visual cues.  For example: Black/ firetail, Green pumpkin/ chartreuse, Brown/ orange.

 

Translucent lures probably would be ineffective. White is VERY good in dingy water.
