Yum Mighty Bug Demise

Recommended Posts

I might be the only one who cares, but it appears the Mighty Bug is being discontinued.  Only one color and size left on the Yum and Lurenet sites.  There used to be more sizes, but they whittled down to one last year.

 

I have a small stockpile; started off as one of my first plastics, catch fish on them on T-rigs and also fished on surface as toad substitutes.

 

Not too durable but they worked for me.

Has always been a great smallmouth plastic for me. Hate to see it discontinued

Maybe I am starting a rumor here, but the fact none are in stock fits the pattern for the demise of similar baits.

I believe you are correct. Google search found that Yum stopped making them back in 2015 and it's just taken this long to move through the stock.

I've bought several packs in the bargain bin at Wal-Mart. Never had much luck with them but I know guys that do.

3 or 4 summers ago the 3" YUM Mighty Bug was my best river smallmouth producer.  Either T-rigged or on a jig head.  I have a couple bags of larger Bugs but I haven't fished one in a couple years.  Loved that 3" bait though!
