STORM® WiggleWart® MadFlash
Great little crank that runs true with that frantic Storm wobble in deep water (on 12# it reaches a little deeper that the original's 5-7ft), but like the original, I have not reached 13ft.
For skinny water, I use 17# mono and this guy flies over rocks even in 2-3ft. like it was "hunting" for its next meal. The #4 black nickel hooks are sharp and don't need to be swapped; they're short enough not to foul. I got the ghost shad which has a pearl top and somewhat clear sides. It's pretty tough, too. I banged it off some rocks a few times just to test its strength, and not even a scratch :).

I always make sure I have this lure in my tackle. It is one of my best lures.

Pike and Bass
I have used the deep red color wiggle wart for years at the Lake of the Ozarks in Missouri. Typically, I prefer to use it in October, banging it through buried brush to bring out the large bass. This week, I am on a trip to Minnesota, hoping to catch some pike. Initially, I was catching only some small pike on other lures but wanted a big pike.
I knew I needed to get deeper and decided to go with the red wiggle wart. I tied the lure onto my 50lb braid and on my second cast, a 32 inch pike just consumed the wiggle wart. The pike pulled out some line right next to the boat but my basspro qualifier reel handled the situation with ease.
When you want to get deep or need to bang the brush or rocks, the wiggle wart is a very durable lure that takes a beating and will hold up to the biggest fish.
I have attached a photo of the 32 inch pike.

The only lure i use
I have had a place on Lake Barkley since I was 9 years old, fished in to many Bass tournaments to count with my father. As he got older we started Trolling for SAUGER and of course White Bass came with the territory. In the Last 20 years we have tried every bait you can troll with and in the last 15 of those years nothing but a WIGGLE WART NEW & ORIGINAL have been on our rods. There is no other bait that stays down in 12 to 14 feet of water like the wart and i can not tell you how many Freezers we have filled with SAUGER & WHITE BASS. AHAZE42
