Bass Pro Shops Paddle Stik
I used the Paddle Stik in the Green Pumpkinseed color many times in July and August of 06. I fish for Small Mouth Bass, (SMB), exclusively. Most of the reservoirs in my area offer no cover other than rock. Using the Paddle Stik on an offset worm hook,10lb mono, and a texas rig setup, I suddenly became a great fisherman. LOL... Honestly, I changed nothing else in my setup, retrieve, or fishing locations. To give you an idea of my success, I was catching SMB in the 12 to 14 inch range. I switched to the Paddle Stik and began to catch the big boys. The biggest SMB I landed this summer was 21 inches long and I couldn't get both of my hands to wrap around him. By the way, that is a huge SMB around here. Many other SMB in the 17 to 19 inch range were caught using this bait. I can't promise you the same success I've had. But I can tell you this much. Everyone I know that fishes for SMB hears all about the Paddle Stik. I have been more than pleased. Hope you wil be too. Good luck... >>))))))*>

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!!!!!

i love these baits. they are very versatile, you can fish them fast or slow, i have fished them on top and the paddle tail makes excellent commotion and also after you get a few fish and the tail falls off you now just have a sticko. which as everyone knows is one of the best baits right now. so all in all its fantastic even when it rips. also i think since last year they have gotten softer so another plus.

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..
