Robo Worms

Recommended Posts

Talk to me

If y'all aint figured it out by now I nuts about fishing plastic; Robo's texture and colors intrigue me. I've used FX Worms and Sculpins for drop shotting but how about Texas Rigs?

I bought a lot of different colored 6" Shakin' Zipper Roboworms a couple of years ago. They seem to catch bass when nothing else is working, but they have only produced little fish for me. If I bought ten packs, I have ten (almost full) left. One thing I have noticed about soft plastics that don't work very well...they seem to last a long time! These things are durable, but that's not an attribute to me.

I remember when the Rebel Ringworm was introduced and when Zipper worms were all the rage (before roboworm took over).

Of course, Rebel claimed that the serrated fins produced a subtle vibration (I suppose that's possible),

but what I liked best was the soft texture and mouthability of both the ringworms and zipper worms.

To be honest, I never met a plastic worm that I didn't like :-*

I invariably T-rigged both worms, and have only one objection. Beneath the serrated fins,

there isn't much of a plastic core for Texas-rigging. For no other reason, I slowly drifted away from both worms.

roboworms are grat baits.  Very soft, with great colors and texture.

I've caught a bunch of bass on a variety of their plastics.

Roboworm makes great baits.  They have some great colors and their products are good quality.  Their new three color injection makes some great injected baits.  Check out their Sourpuss, Craw and Robotail worms.

I have to say that I haven't had much luck with those but I have to admit that I didn't give them much of a chance.  I think I only used them once so I might give them a try again this year.

This is the reason I use Ring Worms, it gives them a fat profile but less plastic for the hook to penatrate.

I just started throwing the robo worm recently i have not tried it texas style but look forward to throwing it this spring. Have fished them drop shot and wacky style weightless with good sucess although i have to agree with RW caught a lot of smaller bass on them.

I've used FX Worms and Sculpins for drop shotting this year and every fish I caught was over the 14 legal size limit.

Tell me y'all wouldn't chunk these?

Actually, that was also what attracted me to the ringworm.

Early on, I would T-rig the zipper using a texposed point by hiding it behind the serrated fins.

Unfortunately, they didn't have the beef to deflect brush, and it wasn't much better than fishing with an exposed hook.

     Later on, I would bury the point in the center of the slender core. That was fine, but in heavy cover

I was still hanging up too much. That in fact, was the only reason that I slowly drifted away from the ringworm and zipper worm,

but I still regard them as "great" plastics.

I never leave home without a Roboworm of some sort in my bag. Body Shad, Sculpins, Straight Tails are my favorite.

I've caught a few little fish on 'em... ;) ;D

I use a Mustad 3/0 Straight Shank Denny Brauer Flipping Hook and never experienced any problems while fishing hydrilla.

Another trick I use is to spray my plastics with an attractant to lubricate the plastic allowing them to slide through the grass easier.

In Southern California....Robo's straight tails in 4.5, 6 and 7 inch sizes are THE TICKET all year round. Ive caught dinks as well as my PB 9.8lb on a 4" straight tail T-Rigged. I usually always Peg a Tungsten Bullet 3/16 with a TSTOP from BPS. Since Robo's are alot softer than most plastic worms, I also put an Iovino (Peg it) rubber nail thru the eye of a 1 or 1/0 gammie ewg hook. It helps keep the soft worms in place and saves you alot to worms. I also fish them on a drop shot and CRig, usually with 6lb flouro. Here in our ultra clear Lakes, aarons magic, margarita mutilator and hologram shad, among others, are hot colors that everyone uses.

Happy New Year to Everyone.

Captain Cali,

I seem to remember seeing a couple of your "little" fish. I guess I need to try using my Roboworms a little more, eh?

;D The funny thing is that I never expected to catch any fish of that size with a bait so small. I also used to make fun of the drop shot technique by calling it double small because it didn't produced any decent fish...at first. A pattern is all it took.  ;)

So tell us Captain Cali do you believe in the theory the bigger the bait the bigger the fish?

To an extent I do believe the bigger the bait the bigger the fish. The way I see it is that a "small" bait can catch every fish in a body of water. While a "large" bait may only appeal to the larger fish, for the most part.

I consider big baits to be better big fish catchers, however I also realize the importance of small baits.

BTW, for what it's worth, the hawgs I caught on the roboworms last summer are far from the biggest fish in that lake. 6 to 7lbs. smaller than the largest I know of.

Robo Worms are my go to drop shot  bait.  I fish the  worms, leeches, and the scullpins.   I do have a couple problems someone might be able to help me out with.  The first one is I have way to many colors and I alway second guess my choice which results  in a lose of confidence.  The second is the storage, I  have been leaving  them in the bags rolling them  up and placing them in my box.  The problem with  this is  that there stacked 4 to 5 deep and finding a  color is hard.  I need  to take them out of the box and open each one up just to  find ther color I'm looking for.  I just changed and I'm trying a falcon jerk bait box and removing them from the bags.  It makes finding the color I'm looking for a lot easier.  It holds 14 different  colors so I  guess its SOL for the less used colors. This was a winter project and have  not been  on the water  using the new system yet.  STILL LOOKING FOR ANY BETTER WAYS
