Bass Pro Shops Stik-O Worm - 6''
i ordered a bag of 6-inch stik-os because i was down to my last three 6-inch yamamoto senkos and thought i'd try to find a cheaper alternative. the first thing i noticed about the stik-os was they seemed kind of small and skinny. when i compared them to my senkos, there was a big difference in size and weight. with a ruler, the 6" stik-os measured only 5-1/4 inches long. i checked and double-checked to make sure i had ordered the right size and the bag clearly says 6 inches. the color matches closely to the yamamotos and they feel like a quality product but these are the size and weight of my 5-inch senkos.

Best Soft Bait I've Used 5 stars
Went to a friend's secluded pond and used these baits in the 6" watermelon red flake variety and KILLED the fish. Rigged Wacky Style they produced lots of strikes and over the course of two days I caught two three pounders one around 4 and a half pounds and one monster in the 6 pound range with countless fish in the 1 to 1 and a half pound range. I even caught a 6-7 pound catfish on one of these baits, next time I head to bass pro shops I will be sure to stock up on about 10 bags of these as I'm almost out. Worms on average for me lasted about 3-5 fish (at least the smaller ones) but when it came to bigger fish they were often thrown off (though well worth it). I definitely recommend these to everybody, even over the yammamoto brand, 18 pack for $4.99 (often on sale for less) versus 10 pack for $7.99? I don't see much of a competition.

I am an outdoor writer, bass tournament angler and full time fishing guide who for the past 10 years have been fishing the wacky worm rig about 99% of the time I am on the water myself or with clients. I average about 4,000 worms annually and the beginning of this summer I tried the STICK-O-WORM for the first time. I tested it along with other well known wacky worms and found it to be better PERIOD. Right from my first trip out when I gave one client another brand and another a STICK-O-WORM that it would almost always produce more; and never less. And the beauty for me because I use so many that saving money is important. Most other brands give you 8-10 in a package with the BPS STICK-O-WORMS you get 18. $7 per bag vs. $4.99 for "18."
In my guide business I have a "NO FISH - NO FEE" guarantee and with the BPS STICK-O-WORMS I am still getting paid. In the last few months since I began using these baits my clients have taken 4 largemouth over 5 pounds and twice as many 4 pound smallmouth. And my prize catch was a 16 inch + crappie taken on a 6 inch Watermelon Magic.
They work, I guarantee it.

I live on a private lake which is very weedy. I fish these weedless and they are deadly. Cast to weed line, let it drop, sit for a few seconds, twitch and bang. Anything watermelon color is great and these have a nice weight to them and cast easily. Just for fun I've casted these without a hook in front of my house and just let them sit. Bass will pick them up and mouth them, swim with them etc. They don't want to let them go. Even a dummy like me can catch bass with these baits..........awesome!
