Zoom Meat Head
From nailing Wisconisn smallies to Colorado largemouth, the Zoom Meathead was my go-to bait. When the fish seemed to ignore everything else, the Meathead would wake them up. The photo is an 18" largemouth caught on a drop-shotted Meathead at Quincy Reservoir in Aurora, CO. They simply work and the price is right.

I stumbled upon a bag of these in a bargain bin one day, and will never go without again. It's fun to go behind others who leave an area without a bite, and see their faces as you clean it out!
As someone else said; dip the tail in red dye. Rig it on a tiny jig head and swim it...don't add movement or action. Just bring it straight in. Its a dead ringer for a baby bass. Or toss it into the thickest slop you can find. Or toss it out and don't do a thing. or drop shot it. Doesn't matter much. The different profile and action are superb on pressured waters.
Reallt it's hard to go wrong.

So easy a 5 year old can use.
The Zoom Meat Head is unbelievable! I had my 5 year old son fishing with live minnows thinking it would be easier for him to catch fish. Since he was watching my dad and I use artificial bait, he wanted to do the same. We rigged my 5 year olds Zebco 33 with a light jig head and a meat head. I told him how to reel slow and steady(I was hoping that he wouldn't snag the bottom.) He caught 2 keeper bass in his first 3 casts. After about 20 minutes of fishing he had caught 5 nice fish.

Meat Head Drop-kicks Them Bass
Deadly on a dropshot rig. Keep some tension on your line so that only your weight is on the bottom. Don't let the lure fall to the bottom, too. Just quiver your wrist subtly; the tail on this worm dances around like you will not believe. Bass can't pass it up. This is a very small worm, so you'll also have hits from small panfish--bluegill, crappie, pumpkinseed, etc. Great way to introduce a youngster to the wonderful world of bass fishing.
