Bass Pro Shops Wreak-N-Bug Soft Plastic Lures
Another great BPS lure,
I had my doubts about this one, and admittedly I bought these as a joke (Junebug Chartreuse.) I rigged it up on a 3/O weightless swimbait hook and proceeded to boat 3 solid Bass within the first 10 casts. One was caught on topwater, and the other 2 were caught working this like a jerkbait through the slop. The only downside to this lure, as other reviewers have previously stated is the durability of the tail. As far as I see it, this is a trade off as the tail has a delicate action that seems to provoke Bass into a strike. With a sturdier tail I feel that these lures wouldn't have the same action, so they are just as they should be in my opinion. Simple solution, buy plenty!

Bass Pro Shops® Wreak-N-Bug Review
The Wreak-n-Bug works fine. The lure is highly detailed and presents great action. The BIG issue is the durability of the tail. It got pulled off easier than we would have anticipated. Understandably you sometimes have to sacrifice durability for functionality but we still would have liked more durability.

This lure is extremely effective on bedding bass. Bass will smash this lure if it comes near their bed and they do not drop it.. If you don't set the hook quickly, they nearly swallow it. However, the baits tear SO easily. One or two fish, and this bait is done. The tail rips off too easy and the body rips too easy. You're almost afraid to set the hook unless you're positive that you have a fish because the bait can tear on a false alarm hook set. Overall, this is an excellent bait, but they don't last long.

Works Well On Beds
This bait works well for bedding bass. The tail has really good action when it is twitched. What I did to mine was dip the tip of the tails in some pink garlic spike-it dye to give it a little something extra. It works well Texas rigged and Carolina rigged. The only complaints I have are that the head of the bait is fairly small so it requires a smaller hook which makes getting good hooksets is a little more difficult and that it is not very durable.
