Bass Pro Shops Stik-O Worm - 3''
The 3" Stik-O is my number one go to bait and results speak for themselves. I have caught 1100 bass in the first 10 months of 2014, with most of them coming on the 3" Stik-O. I prefer to flip the 3" bait in and behind lily pads an tulies. I Texas rig the Stik-O with a number 1 (not 1/o) Bass Pro EWG hook. You get great hook sets. These little baits catch a lot of bigger bass. I have had a bass over 5 lbs every month. Largest was 9# 2 oz. The big fish seem to prefer "white" in my lake which has very stained water. I fish everything on straight 20# test braid. Got tired of breaking my line. I put a nail weight in these worms to give the more weight and because I am an impatient fisherman. When I rip up the worms, I save them and use them wacky style for a "flick-shake" presentation.
Started the year with Senko's, but found them both too soft and too expensive. Bass Pro Stik-O worms are a great value.

still the best
I have been using stik-o baits for the last 32 years and they have increased my catch dramatically, the slow presentation drives bass wild the only trouble with the bait is your partners always want you to share them.

Excellent for ponds
When the byte is tough, I turn to this bait to catch largemouth bass in the pond near my place.
You can easily cast it out weightless with a medium spinning outfit with 6-8 lb test line, the hook I use is a #2 gamakatsu offset.
Its durability is quite good, I can catch more than one fish per worm.
I highly recommend having it in your tackle box, you won't regret buying it.

These are really awesome in so many ways. They cast like bullets, catch monster bass, and they are much more rugged than Gary Yamamoto Senkos (Though I love those just as much). You get way more in a package compared to other brands. Every angler should have these in their box. I have even caught huge horned pout on these during the day! One tiny disadvantage is quality control- some worms have indents in them or bits of untrimmed plastic-but Bass don't mind!
