Worm Suggestions

Recommended Posts

I mainly throw senko style worms but I know there is 100 different styles. I have a bunch of trick worms but honestly never use them because I don't get bit. I have a bps gift card and I'm looking to try some new plastics this season. So if you could give me some new things to look in to that would be great. Obviously senkos aren't the only worms I own or use. I'm just looking for other worms that are good for T rigs mainly.

I had some good luck with a Trigger X Hammer worm this fall. I have the 10-inch version in black/blue. I rigged it texas style and used a sort of more agressive hop on the bottom. It did alright. Might give that a whirl for a large worm.

Zoom finese worm worked well for me, I had to really slow down to give these a try, and stick with them. It payed off in the end!

The majority of my worms are Rage Tail or Zoom but I'm adding Roboworms in there slowly but surely. I like them a lot for my drop shotting and shakeyheads as an alternative to some of the zoom worms I use.

If you are into big worms, try the 10" Yamamoto curly tail. Rig it weedless on a large 7/0 off-set worm hook, tail up. Bring it over the top on the edge of weed pad or beds and be prepared for some seriously explosive strikes! I like the black with blue tail. :)

Western Maryland. Cumberland? Deep Creek Lake? North Potomac River? Hagarstown?

 

Tell us the waters you fish and we can give you some better responses.

 

For example, Deep Creek Lake you can throw any plastics on any presentation if you are in a boat.

 

North Potomac River will be smallmouth and sometimes smallmouth don't want plastics.

 

Ponds?  Smaller lakes? Plastics should work.

 

Check out drop shot and shaky head techniques and consider fishing them on spinning gear around any docks, piers, pilings, structure and wood along the shoreline or bank.

 

Zoom trick worms and baby brush hogs should produce some action. Finesse worms to Rage Tail Anacondas can also work. 

 

Just go out and experiment and let the bass tell you what they want on that day and time. And after you figure it out the bite will go away and you have to start over!!!!  Have fun.

Yeah see I know nothing about those. Heard of them but that's it. Heck some of them mentioned I haven't though. Small town living stinks when you're a fisherman.

Culprit 7.5 are all I've used for years. Still work fine. Moccasin and Black Shad for big fish.

If you don´t get bit with a Trickworm then you must not be doing something right, straight trail worms ( Trickworms mainly ) have been my number 1 worm style for more than 3 decades, maybe 80% of the time I tie a worm it´s going to be a Trickworm; my number 2 worms style is the ribbontail worm ( Culprit 7.5" ) and my number 3 worm is a C tail shape worm.

 

I seldomly fish with stickbaits ( senko style ).

See I've heard this a lot and that's why I bought a bunch. Plus I've never noticed anyone around me fishing them so I figured show them something new and catch more fish. Wrong haha

I always resort back to the stick worms because they catch me fish. I own a handful of different style worms based on info from BR but they don't seem to produce for me.

Maybe the problem is that you are fishing your non stickbait worms like if they were stickbaits.

Zoom are one of my favorite plastics all around. Strike king stick worms work ok, but I noticed they last longer than most others.

You could be on to something here. Other then the slow drag/hop or lift/fall methods I don't know how else you'd fish a worm.

Trick worms on shakey head was the ticket for me October and November.

I've never fished a shakey head. I can't stand slow finesse presentations. I won't throw a weightless worm very often because it takes to long to get to the bottom. Even when I fish wacky it's on a weighted jig head.

Zoom Ultra Vibe worm. I also love the new Rage CutR worm.

Berkeley power worms are my back ups to senkos. Finesse worms and roboworms for dropshots.

Have you ever tried splitting the end of a senko? 1/2s or 1/4s. Gives it an interesting flutter in the tip, and works good in conjunction with dye IMO.

Might have to give that a try. Split both ends and throw it wacky rigged.

Felix I've heard them mentioned a bunch so I'll add them to the list also.

So as it stands I'll be grabbing some

Rage tail cut r

Zoom ultra vibe
