.... I looked up the Mann's bait co. on line after reading your post goobs .

It' s right there just like you said , and I was exited to find the original jelly worms again ... but somewhere in the long time lapse since I used to use them religiously , I must have gotten confused about the tail type . It's not a flat thin twister tail at all , it's the throb type . For some reason I've been thinking and remembering it more like their auger tail .

The worms I've been using for along time now are Culpert's I think , and any other that has that long thin twister tail type .

Weird how the mind and memory works . Thanks for the heads up on the Mann's Co. on line ... I'm going to order some original jelly's anyway even though they aren't the twister tail I thought they use to be ... and they come in 6" or 8" . not 7" but that's ok too ... thay worked great before so I'll expect no different now !!

Besides , my post idea is about throwing plastic worms cause they're always (almost :-) great producers on Largemouth .

There's one thing about throwin plastic worms sometimes , especially in the wood and under water trees and limbs ... although they are virtually weedless and can go through and over most anything , they are also an irresistable temptation to Bluegills who hang in the same haunts as the Largemouth we're targeting .

Reason I mention this about Bluegills is ... the little rats seem to always be biting and biting at the worm if they find it ... and it's when one takes a good bite and runs off with it in heavy wood cover that he finally reaches the end of his rope . At that point if he's determined to hang on he'll stretch the worm and disengage the weedless hook ... and pop it goes like a sling shot out his mouth and many times ends up like a dart into the nearest log or wood ... in ya go to recover it and so much for hopes of a big bass in that spot , time for another spot ... Bluegill bandits !!

Little farts , in some places with thick wood cover this can happen 20 times a day . And though it gets frustrating somewhat , we still for some reason don't seem to mind the little bandits messin with the worm , keeps things interesting ya know :-)
