Bass Pro Shops Stik-O Worm - 4-1/4''
My go-to bait
These little 4 1/4 inch Stiko's are my go-to bait. I especially like the Baby Bass color and the Red Shad. I fish from the bank at a local city lake and have caught several quality bass, two of them in the nine pound class. I fish them weightless with a 2/0 light wire Texas-rigged hook, using a light action spinning outfit with 15 # Spider wire stealth in HI-Viz yellow with a flourocarbon leader., so I can see it and the fish cannot. You can cast that a long way. I just retrieve it with a slow erratic sideways twitch in shallow water, or in deeper water, with a slow lift and pause to let it rise and drop. It is very hard to hang it up. This is a great bait!

These are great. The size is perfect as the summer moves into the later months when the bites are less enthusiastic. I also hop them across the matted top and a big bass will bust through and take it, and can get it into his mouth.
Works great as a Texas rig. I have used these on a drop shot at Table Rock very successfully when no one else could catch anything. My favorite colors are green and the black with blue flecks.
I love that I get 20 per pack, and especially stock up when they are on sale. Bass love them!

Just like t he 3 inch stick-o, the 4 inch stick-o delivers up the goods when it comes to driving bass crazy. I use the mardi gras color for river smallies(like a jacked up version of a watermelon candy color) and the smallies jump on this thing left and right. Fish it on a split shot rig(put the shot 18 inches above the bait) and this makes hover above the bottom as it drifts. A 3/0 wide gap hook gives you a better hook up rate. These things are super durable as well, I caught 17 smallies on one worm! Worth ever cent. Dont waste money on yum, yamamoto, case, or any other brand. Buy a pack or 20, you wont be sorry.

No Dinger but close for cheep!
I love to fish this style of lure, my standard choice in the sinking worm is the YUM Dinger, however those can cost an arm and a leg to stock up on so I picked up some of these Stick-Os and so far I'm happy with them. They have a big solid body and are just a little more stiff than the Dinger or the Senko, but this isnt always a bad thing you may just have to adjust how you fish it in different settings. The price of these lures is really the most amazing part, they are quality BSP lures and they are cheep! I would recommend getting some of these to go along with your other sinking worms, you'll be glad you did!
