Fishing Gear: H2OX 6-Inch Straight Tail Worm

H2OX 6-Inch Straight Tail Worm

Description and Application: Designed to equip and educate new and veteran anglers alike, the straight tail worm is a mainstay among finesse anglers—it works for both large- and smallmouth bass everywhere they swim. The bait is salt and scent impregnated, which helps it sink—they come in a 12-pack for lots of catches. The worms measure 6 inches and works well in various riggings. The experts at Academy and H2OX suggest using a 7-foot, medium-heavy rod with a moderate-fast action paired with a fast baitcaster filled with 12-pound fluorocarbon and armed with a 2/0 to 3/0 worm hook. Available online at your local Academy Sports + Outdoors retailer.

Staff Perspective:Arguably one of the most productive finesse presentations the straight tail worm is an effective bait as a Texas rig, rigged Texas style without a weight even wacky on occasion, but it certainly catches bass when they’re tight-lipped or highly pressured in clear water. With eight colors to choose from, you’ll easily find the right match to the waters you’re fishing. The crew at H2OX did a great job on this one, and it’s priced perfectly for lots of fun on the water.

Cost:$3.99
