There are plastic baits, and then there are Zoom baits. The difference is undeniable. Want proof? Just take a peek into your favorite tournament angler's tackle box, and start counting the Zoom bags. For those who lay it on the line every time out, there can be no other choice. Every Zoom soft plastic bait is wholly realistic, super-soft to the touch (for the extra action needed to pull that reluctant money fish) and salt-impregnated to hold even the most tentative bite.
Zoom's Finesse Worms are the go-to bait when the bite slows after a front pushes through. The Finesse Worm can be fished on a wide variety of rigs, wacky, finesse head or Texas, and regardless of how the Finesse Worm is rigged it wiggles and shakes tempting bass to strike.

Winter fishing in Florida these Zoom Finesse Worms are fantastic. Winter bass in Florida like just a little snack most of the time.

I always carry at least 3-4 different Zoom worms, all of them being the 5" finesse. However, my all time favorite is the original black. I fish the ponds near Ft Stewart,GA and I will go through a bag of 20 in about 3-4 hours mostly due to the 17-20 fish I would catch in one trip. Never had I caught so many and back to back to back days, especially during the winter. I primarily use it on a drop shot rig with a 1/4 ounce BPS drop shot weight, 8lb Pline fluorocarbon on a 6'6" medium spinning rod and a #2 Gamakatzu drop shot hook. Def will stock up on them because they sell out quick at BPS here in Savannah.

I've really grown to love the finesse worms over the past year. This is a great bait to use in conjunction with the screw-lock shaky-head football jig. Highly recommended.

The finesse worm is a great bait to fish on a jig head in cold weather or when the fishing is really tough

i wouldn't recommend these rods for using a shakey head presentation. you would need a stiff rod with fast - Xfast action. shakey head fishing calls for a quick hook set and a strong rod to do it with. the BPS extreme series rods would be a good place to start. check out the M-MH rods and go from there.
use 2/0 or 3/0 Gamagatsu g-locks with a bullet weight for texas rigging-they also work very well using shaky head-BPS spiral locks. Green pumpkin, Green pumpkin magic if you can find--awesome bait here in New York's Adirondack lakes and Hudson River.
I love this worm!!!! you can rig it lots of ways Texas rig with and off set wide gap worm hook is my farovite...shakey head second.. I have all so drop shotted with it. Green pumkin is the color that works best for me here in NC..
Hello, I am using this worm very successfully using the Mike Iaconelli "Flea Flicker" method. But after about 5 casts the worm comes off the hook as it is only hooked through the middle of the worm. Is there something you can use to keep the worm on the hook like a ring or rubber band? Thanks!
Try a barbed hook, one with 2-3 barbs on the hook shaft. Push the hook through the worm sufficient to catch these barbs. Also, try hooking through the end of the worm rather than hooking it up "wacky." For these particular worms use a #1/small hook.
I use small rubber bands like the ones used on braces for your teeth...bait lasts 3 times as long...i do skin hook the work a little right uder the rubber band which keeps the the worm attached if a fish comes up and pulls on just one end....you can buy them on e-bay
BassPro carries some small rubber O-rings that you can slip over the worm. You can also get some clear aquarium tubing and slip it over the worm... Run the hook through the o-ring or the plastic tubing and the worm will last much longer!
Good no, AWESOME YES! My favorite color is black grape, for the lakes I fish, but I've done well with most of the standard colors i.e. black, green pumpkin, watermelon, black with red fleck and also smoke with purple flake.
I have found out that when Bass are bitting well that just about any color worls. Use what you feel confident using. June Bug,and June Bug Red work for me. Also keep some salt enhanced worms of the same color,and size. I have found the to work better if the Bass are slow bitting.
So you would like to know if green pumpkin chartreuse works? well I won't just tell you it works, but that it works very well! I like to use this color in lightly stained to muddy water. and i think when used with a wobble worm head hook and fished slow, you will find I'm dead on the money!
