For the most part, the guys who are consistently in the money here are working speed worms right now. I'd never seen one worked until I moved here...talk about a weapon! Granted, it's a completely different environment here...but there are many circumstances when I wish I would have had that in my back of tricks in AZ. Worth checking out...

Desert Cajun, are they working them on the surface like a buzzbait or fishing them like a Senko?

They are basically a cut-tail worm that you haul @#@[email protected]#$ across the surface. They are usually worked across vegetation here, but they'd work anywhere/anytime topwater is on anywhere I'm sure. I had just never seen them before and was facinated to see them work.

That I don't know. The ones I've seen the local yocals throwing look just like a yamamoto cut-tail worm. They are heavy enough to throw a county mile. I watched a guy who is known as "the stick" around here throwing those things during a tournament a week ago at Lake Arbuckle just murdering the fish and was in awe. Come to find out they are the latest and greatest going around here. Time to place an order with Bass Pro Shops.

Rippinlips is right

Jim, You are right, I saw a replay of the final round this weekend and that is one of the baits he talked about.

There were times on Lake Okeechobee when I fished worms on top over the grass and through the weeds. Sometimes I used a 8 inch crawlwer straight tail floating worm, no weight, and a swivel about 18 inches up the line. Worked in a walk the dog fashion it will zig-zig like a snake. I used two colors: bubble gum pink and black. Other times I used a small sliding bullet weight (1/8 or 3/16 oz) and a 8 inch paddle tail worm (like Mike Iaconelli did in the Classic) and hold the rod tip high and reel it fast enough for the tail to beat on the water. Both techniques will work back east.

Everybody knows EVERY advancement in fishing was spawned out east. Sure, you west coast boys have the swim bait...but you can thank us for the beer coozy and chicken livers.
