It'd be great if every time we hit the water the fish were tearin up our baits! Unfortunately, we will never be that lucky. However when times get tough I am pretty sure all of us have a favorite (or a few of them) "Go To" worms that we rig up to entice even the most finicky bass.



I have two. One is a Zoom Trick Worm. I mostly use the Green Pumpkin color. Around here the color scuppernong also gets a good work out. My 2nd favorite is a Producto Spring Worm in black. This is a 4" ring worm with a paddle tail and I find myself reaching for thsi bait when conditions get the toughest.

What are yours?

Zoom 6" Lizard, 6"worm, or trick worm in the bluegill color. Tough color to find.

I recently have fell in love with the zoom vibratail in watermelon and pumpkin.

But then if I am desperate it is a Mann's jelly worm in grape or blackberry.

Would have to be a senko type bait. Either GY or Alluring or Wave Worm or basically any brand. To me those are the best catchingist worms ever.

Down here in Florida I guess I have not fished many texas rigged worms that much as I seem to use a Senko type more now. But trick worms fished t-rigged are great as well as Charlies Worms in the high floater style. I like their red shad with green glitter. Bass Assassin has nice 7" worms in Junebug with blue tails.

I must be the odd ball for the week. I don't use spinning gear and I haven't fished a worm in almost 10 years. Wow!! Maybe I need to go back and try them out again.

Did you want to include all soft plastics or "worms"? Lizards, creatures, Senkos craws, soft jerk baits?

Hey, TCB, where are you finding those Mann's jelly worms? I used to love the grape and blackberry too, but my killer was the ice blue 6" worm. I haven't been able to find them anywhere around here for a long time!! 8) 8)

I like senko style worms "t"rigged on spinning gear. If I'm really desperate though, I go to a tube, either on a light jighead or "t" rigged with an internal weight.

Gene Larew makes a bait called the Salt Craw, of course black with blue pinchers is the old stand by, but i have found that the june bug is awesome also, they fish like a worm, and are great when the new hatch of crawfish come out. I have had good success against the wood and in the grass with them, real good to cast past the holes in weed beds, run across and let them sink in the holes and jig up and down. Rarely will you get a "nibble" on a salt craw, 9 ot of 10 times, it's ---------BAM!

Up north I use to use Gene Larew Salt Craws all the time! :) I loved them! To be honest the only reason I dont use them anymore is because I ran out. hehe how lazy is that? lol

Originally it was the 5-inch Senko. Now I tend to go for the 5" yum dinger. It seems to be more natural to the fish. I go through a lot more of them too.

Hey LakeCityYankee, a true Gene Larew Guy wouldn't be caught without a black and blue salt craw LOL, I buy them by the 100's, they are a great pitching bait with a pegged weight also, and a good trailer on you jig.

They didn't help this pass weekend though, cold front kicked my butt!!!!!

Green pumpkin and watermelon red, just about any name brand will do, but primarily zoom. I hate to say it, but the bubble gum, zoom trick worm, texas rigged, weightless or weighted hook only, has been really, really good to me and my partner. But, I gave him a hard time the first time he pulled it out. On 1st cast with it, pulled out a nice fish during our 1st tourney, I had no problems asking for one after that! By the way, there are way to many freakin worm colors out there! You guys are great!
