.... or blue color .
these things always produce nice fine and often large size ... Largemouth bass from lakes , ponds and especially reservours .
I personally prefer to use a split shot (small one) for my weight as opposed to the slip bullet type ... still use the worm hook though as normal .
Matter of fact , a bag of the plastic worms , some worm hooks and split shot is all you need to take out with ya ... and of course your rod and reel ... I prefer 8 lb. cause I KNOW HOW TO LOOSEN A DRAG ... shazzammm , maybe a half dozen hefty Largemouth in an evening short run on your local fav. lake .
If you ain't using this simple inexpensive deal , I suggest you do so ... sweet is what I've always said about it , it's my #1 , always has been , when Largemouth are the game .
Slow across the bottom , drag it over everything , feel the bottom , stop and pause now and then ... two light bumps is the usual hit , but not always ... drop the rod tip (don't let it feel you there) ... open the bail and let it run for a bit ... then click it closed and wait for the tightening of the line on the run ... set the hook straight up ... hang on !!!

I have permitted my reservoir to go undisturbed (by me) so far this summer, and it is inexcusable. I usually use a grub or tube on a 1/4 oz or 1/8 oz ball head jig in the weeds, but I don't get big ones that way. I just get ... some fish.

have a rod rigged with them.For me black/red fire tail and blue metal-flake work best most often.Mostly 6" but 4" is good to.Never had much luck using the longer worms regardless of color or tail style.Without a doubt the best lure for fresh water.

My sister in Florida only fishes with a BLACK plastic worm. Since it is Florida and weeds are everywhere it is usually Texas rigged. But in sandy lakes clear of most weeds it is rigged with the point out and no weight.
