Bass Pro Shops Stik-O Worm - 3''
as good as Gary's
I have been using the yamamoto baits for ages in the 3" length. 6-8 dollars for 10 was ridiculous...so i gave these a try. At 3.29 for 16 these are a steal, and they perform as good as the more expensive brands. Smoke purple flake and the green colors are deadly here in Colorado...and these baits caught me 15 14-22" large mouth on the 29th of December. I catch WAY more when it is warmer!
Killer Baits...whacky rigged on a size 8 finess or circle hook.

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.

These things rock
I have caught more smallmouth on the shenandoah with this bait then any other stickbait.
Case Magic sticks are good too but cant hold a candle to the stick o for the price. These things are also much more durable then the yumdingers.
Just nose hook them with a size 4 eagle claw baitholder and you'll hook up on every bite, dont bother texas riggin' for river smallies. You'll miss some strikes if you go that route.
I've caught some enourmous smallmouth on this tiny bait, dont let the size fool you. Get the green pumpkin, you wont be sorry!!!!!!

This Little Bait Rocks!
I fish for largemouth and smallies a lot and I have never found a bait that works better in rivers than this little bait. I use the pearl in a local river and get hit almost every cast.
I usually go through a pack or 2 per day easy.
The price is great, the action is great, and I keep my tackle box stocked always.
Fish um wacky or hooked in the nose without weight or drop shot when you need to be more targeted.
All I can say is order more than 1 pack!
