Yum mighty bug experience and substitutes?

Recommended Posts

Recently tried Yum Mighty Bugs Texas rigged with good success: buzzed along surface (more like plopped to create a wake) then let fall; swam mid-water column, and cast and let fall on targets.

The claws and extra legs do a great job of flapping for this type of fishing.

Any other baits you like to fish this way?  Anyone else fish this bait and then find a substitute?  

Seem like they are not a very popular bait, only some strays in old bargain boxes at Walmarts, and some mid-size baits on Lurenet.

I use them like a T-rigged craw for smallmouth and have good success with them. Local tackle shops in my area still carry them....

Heavyduty that's great news.  What sizes do they carry?  What sizes do you use? The ones I like the best are maybe 4.5 inches long, but the ones on Lurenet are only 3.75 inches.  I also found packs of smaller ones in the bargain bins but haven't tried those yet.

I was watching major league fishing a while ago and saw Greg Hackney doing something similar to this with rage craws. Buzzing it over vegetation and then letting it fall in the pockets. I think he was using just a plain white or pearl color

Pit Boss or a Rage Space Monkey. The Space Monkey is like a toad with and extra set of flapping arms.
