Ribbontail Worms

Recommended Posts

Just started using some what appears to be Zoom 8" watermelonseed ribbontail worms. Have caught a few fish on them. I haven't noticed anyone saying they caught fish on these types of worms, mostly I slow roll them for best results. Anywho, just wondering if any of you fellas have been throwin em, and what if any luck you've had with them.

I throw the zoom, culprit and roboworms ribbon tails or u-tails( black, junebug,redshad). I swim them slowly just off the bottom on a weighted owner hook or ***s swimming shakey heads. ;)

7 1/2" Larew Salty Ring Tail is highly recommended by Catt.

You might want to try them, too!

#2 The Rage Tail 10" Anaconda is the hottest new item on the market.

This bait is a "must have" if you target bigger bass.

For the past 30 years, no self respecting southern boy will leave his home without a pack of 7.5 inch Culprit ribbontail worms and Texas rig it to ketch them big bass..  ;)

Culprits are great baits.   Some of my biggest fish were caught on shad and red shad colors Culprits.

I like ribbon tails post spawn when the water has some stain to it but not super muddy.  I'll fish em T rig or C rig in more open water.  If I'm throwing at visible targets I think there are other baits that are more effective for me.

I still have the most confidence in a good ol' black power worm. ;)

Maybe it is a regional thing but the ones here around carry both the 7.5 and 10in in every color culprit has.

Zoom's Mag II (8.5 inch) worms are a favorite of mine for catching big fish most anywhere. While texas rigging them has produced the most fish you can Carolina rig them as well. I find these worms are a good medium between the smaller 6 -7 inch ribbon tails and the huge 10'' worms. Smaller fish will still eat them, but the larger profile seems to appeal to better then average fish.

Best colors have been Green Pumpkin, Watermelon, Red Bug, and Junebug. Use as light a weight as the situation calls for. A 4/0 Gamakatsu offset hook works well and does not tear up the worms as quickly.

Guess I'm not a southern boy then. ;)

Give me a pack of 7" motor oil powerworms and I'll be happy.

I got away from these last year, but they've always produced for me.

My bass hunting days started with Culprits.  When 7" Power Worms came out, the Culprits were out.  It was actually silly how much longer the bass held the bait, like night and day.  Its a difference that either isn't there anymore, or I just take for granted, but I do a great deal of damage with 7 and 10" Power Worms still.  Black, Motor Oil, or one of those two colors with an accent or flake work in just about every situation.

I always have a rod rigged with a 7.5" Culprit ribbon tail worm in JuneBug or RedShad. I vary my weight according to conditions.

The Red Shad Culprits are my go to bait for sure. I have so much confidence in that bait. It's the first thing my grandfather gave me when he first taught me how to bass fish.

Zoom's U - Tail and Berkley Power Worms are my favorites by far. Black is a great color for just about any condition, as is junebug.

I started my worm fishing on Culprits, man, must have been 20 years ago, but about 6 years ago I switched over to Charlie Worms and have never looked back.

Have to agree on the Power Worms.

Cut my teeth on Culprits but now it's Power Worms.
