The Bass Pro Shops® Paddle Stik is our Stik-O® Soft Jerkbait with the addition of an aggressively vibrating paddle tail. Similar to the Stik-O, the Paddle Stiks are virtually impossible to fish wrong and are ideal for swimming over or through bass-holding grass. The Paddle Stik's seductive action combined with its infusion of salt and 8up scent is a recipe for success.

One bait covers many presentations
These are great baits to have on when you are trying to figure out what the fish want because they can be presented so many ways. I use a 1/8 oz pegged bullet sinker and a 4/0 EWG hook with braided line and without re-rigging I can go from burning it across the top (the tail creates lots of commotion) to slithering it through shallow cover to swimming it along weed edges to dragging it on the bottom traditional tx rig style. My biggest bass so far this summer came off the bottom in 20ft of water dragging one around the base of some standing timber (photo attached). Also makes a real good swim jig or spinnerbait trailer, you can cut off however much you want from the front end to get the profile you are looking for. OH YEAH, and if you pull off the paddle tail you have a regular stick worm to fish wacky style or however. I can't think of another lure that gives me so many options for one spot in my tackle box. These are super useful and the bass eat them.
Also they come 16 to a pack so they are a good value.
If I could say anything wrong with them, it would be that the tail action doesn't work at slow retrieve speeds. If you twitch the rod tip you can give it some action at slow speeds but not the awesome thump vibration it gets going when you speed it up a little. If you are specifically looking for slow speed swimming type vibration I would suggest you look for a good swimbait.

Folks at the local BPS store said they were no longer going to sell the Paddle stikss so I panicked and stocked up. Was down to a half dozen packs. Hope this is only a rumor. Great bait with a 1/16 oz weight fished around cypress trees. Will also buzz across the top with the light weight. Hope I don't have to find an alternative since this is the best paddle tail type bait around..

Fished this worm yesterday on the Ronoake river in N.C and put 10 bass in the boat. My fishing partner fish everything in his tackle box and every type of worm he had with him. After I had caught 5 he finally asked me for one of the worms I was fishing, which was the paddle tail stiko from bass pro. I rigged it like I fish mine and on his second cast within 3 minutes he had his first bass of the day, in fact we had our first double of the day. We caught a couple of 4 to 5 lb fish in the next couple of hours. This worm when rigged right will viberate and swim like a small snake. You can feel it thump when you pull it at just the right speed. Great worm!!!!!
