I Love Plastic Worms!

Recommended Posts

  I just got in an order from Tackle Warehouse.  This was an order for giant plastic worms!  

 

  1.  Zoom O'L Monster.  I didn't know it when I ordered but Walmart and the local Gander Mountain carries these.  If I had known that I would not have ordered them from Tackle Warehouse. 

 

  2.Yum 10.5 inch Mighty Worm.  Oh Yeah!  I can't wait to try this one out this spring.  I'm a big fan of Yum worms.  I Love Yum!  My favorite is the five inch Yum-Dinger.  I can't want to use this giant sized Yum!  

 

  The next two brands are new to me:  

 

  3.  Mann's 12 inch jelly worm.  I heard Mann's was the first mass produced popular U.S. plastic worm and very popular up to the 1980s.  I can't wait to try this big worm out too.  

 

  4.  NetBait 15" C-Mac.  I've never used NetBait lures before but read about these worms and so I figured I would give them a try.  They are fifteen inches and the largest worms in my whole fishing collection.  

 

  There is just something about collecting and using plastic worms that is fun fun fun! I know some of you love jigs and crankbaits.  But for me the number one and only lure worth throwing is the plastic worm!  They are awsome, sexy, pretty, cool, neat, effective, productive, cheap, easy to use, and they catch bass!  

 

  I'm pumped even though we just got five inches of snow.  Three more months till we get to April.  I really  hope spring arrives here sooner than normal.

TW carries Upton's Customs, if you want a high end hand poured worms up to 24". Upton's 10" to 16" dragon tails are excellent big bass worms.

You're probably better off ordering those Ol' Monsters from TW, no taxes and you don't have to drive anywhere. 

The Mightee worms are a really good baits. I really like to fish them weightless or on a C-rig.

The heaviest weight ever weighed in at a BASS event was partially caught on a 12" Jelly Worm.

The C-macs are a great bait, next to the Ol' Monsters they're my favorite big worm.

I consider the Thumper and Anaconda "big worms". I have had great luck on structure with

both of these. I thnk the Recon is going to be a winner, but I haven't fished it enough yet.

Although it is not a big worm, the Cut-R was my biggest producer last summer.

I am a big fan of the 10" powerbait worms.  After trying some Netbait products last season I plan on adding the 11" C-mac to my list of worms to use this season.  Can't beat the price on them that's for sure!!!

Looks like TW only carries the 6", 9" and 13" , go online for Upton's customs web site for the longer worms.

I kind of like the smell of the GY senkos whenever I open up the bag. The smell gives me more confidence. I think it's because it doesn't smell so plasticy (not saying others are any less effective, because I wouldn't know).

I feel like too many Bass Fisherman tend to forget about some other simple High Percentage baits, especially from the bank....I would suggest fishing stick worms unweighted whenever possible for a slower sink since most strikes will come on the intitial drop if you are casting to the right targets and getting your bait to land without much of a splash, or if skipped under and deep into shoreline cover or offshore stucture and pads....

I would certainly add a Fluke to any soft plastic selection and the zoom Flukes will always catch fish at any depth and nothing seems to beat watermelon and red flake and pearl with some silver flake.

I used to love the 4-5" dingers and sticks, but moved to the 6" and now am back to Sluggos and Trick worms both texas and wacky and weightless or carolina rigged in deeper water....4" finesse worms are a must, and so are a 3-4" Kalins or Mr. Twister curly tail grub as it is so versatile....here are some High Percentage lures that will also draw reaction strikes from inactive fish if they are not looking for a slow presentaion of a worm....

-1. Use the Grub or Ribbon Tail and swim it on the surface over cover, open water like a buzz bait, or subsurface, or rig grub on a darter head on the bottom.

2- Johnsons silver minnow 1/2 oz. gold spoon with a 3-4" trailer like any type of grub, but a twin tail grub is great.

3-some type of topwater lure if fish are schooling, and I find it necessary to carry a popping plug like the Rebel pop r and a prop bait like the torpedo and a buzzbait.

4- using a split shot rig is a great way too put up numbers as it is essentially a drop shot and easy to use from the bank...I will often match the hatch with a green, firetiger, and shad colored berkley twitch minnow, or any small finesse bait that is buoyant. a Gitzit tube is great used any way you choose, beetle spins, inline spinners, small craws behind a smaller jig like a bitsy bug, and my first choice...

when in a pond or on a bank, cast a 2-4" balsa minnow like the rapala J5-j9 in silver black, firetiger, or chrome.

However, all baits will work and use what you have confidence in, but if you start adding a few new tools, you will be surprised how many more consitent days you have....the rapala is a great search bait as is a mepps or rooster tail spinner since you can cover water to find groups of fish.

  The more worms I buy and less I become a fan of other lures.  lol.   All I did last spring/summer was Texas rig my worms.  This spring/summer I have some big worms and just got an order in with some 4.5" worms.  And I'm going to focus on Carolina rigging.  I'm thinking with regular, large, and small worms plus Carolina and Texas rigging, I'm going to catch some major fish in 2014!

You're not alone with the love for plastic worms. Zoom is my main goto brand, I mostly use Finesse Worms, and some magnum finesse. If you're searching some some good custom baits check out Jak's Custom Baits. He make those hard to find color patterns, and has no problem adding a scent to them, he has everything from coffee to crickets and anything inbetween.
