6.5" Slinky Worm
Our 6.5" Slinky Worm is the perfect "Trick Worm" for shaky head fishing. It uses our super soft, super boyant plasitsol, which keeps the tail standing up vertically as it's worked along the bottom. Even in a resting position the bulbous tail will slowly undulate, eliciting the strike.
Since we use a very low resin plastisol they are much more soft/suple. This allows each worm to float, gives the worm better action, and allows better hook penetration when rigging.
Rigging: The ideal rig we've found for these is fished on a Shaky Head. 7' Medium light extra fast tip, on 12lb braid to a 6 or 8lb florocarbon leader. 1/4oz Shaky head jig. Cast the bait out, let it fall on semi slack line until it hits bottom, than slowly drag the bait back, keeping contact with the bottom at all times. Periodically stopping the bait, and shaking the rod tip, making the bulbous tail of the bait undulate and flutter as it stands up at a 70 degree angle off the jig head.
Additional Rigging Options:
Free Rig Trailer
Durability: Low, 1-3 fish/bait
Bait Design: The body shape has a flat bottom, with a ribbed top, moving from the head back, there's an egg sack about 2" into the bait, and it has a bulbous ribbed tail
Scent: Like all our baits they are heavily scented with our Phat Juice which is a Craw/Leech/Shad combination.
