Bass Pro Shops® Swim Stik-O-Worm® Soft Plastic Jerkbaits
Big fish eat little fish, and our swimmer draws the predators right in! Paddle tail guarantees plenty of wiggle on the retrieve. Slit belly makes it easy to rig weedless with a wide gap hook. Heavily salted.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bassgod5 an effective tool Once bass are located, this is an effective tool to siene an area. I recommend deadsticking like a senko bait (weighted/nonweighted), depending on the mood of the fish and cover of the area. For the price, this is just as effective as a senko and a bit more durable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by AZCatskinner Great bait, but......... I've been using these for a while now, and have been pretty impressed. Cheaper than the Skinny Dippers, work just as well, and helps me to avoid explaining Andre's (Reaction Innovations) color names to my kids who are continually scrounging around in the boat to stock their tackleboxes up. Flipping the watermelon red into the brush on a light Texas rig is an AWESOME pattern when they're on a bluegill bite). The only reason I retract one star from perfection is the lack of color selection. BPS has always been a little lacking in western color patterns, and these are no exception. (Note to BPS marketing gurus - smoke sparkle would fly off of the shelves west of the Rockies). January 9, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by sonarflash As good as more expensive swimbaits Nice soft swimbait, I fish them upside down keeps them near the surface and makes the fall more subtle. One in the pack didn't didn't swim at all, another reviewer had this problem. They are very soft I have had some last for 2 fish and other last for up to 7 fish. I bought white and plan on ordering other colors. September 21, 2010

A:I do not use any weight. I rig it weedless, down the front and up through the back, and fish it very slowly. I use a bit more of a pull than with the worm styles because the paddle tail vibration seems to attract strikes on the fall.
A:You can, but I like to add a nail weight on either side of the hook .

A:This is a great lure. I use the watermelonseed color in the northeast because it imitates the baitfish here. If your in the south you could use a lighter color I would suppose.
I personally don't weight it because it's plenty heavy enough. If you do add a weight it will cast further which is good for shore fishing. The weight also steadies the lure a little allowing you to reel faster and not have the bait turn upside down.
You could also put it on a skirted jig and do well.
