This worm has produced a lot of solid hits and some great looking fish. They bite and hold on. Caught a Channel Catfish and It attacked it like it was its favorite snack..

I purchased this product I the Junebug color and it has produced very well. I like the design and the action the worm has whether going across the lilly pads or slow moving across the bottom. My second and third cast produced fish and I'm still doing well with this worm.

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.
