Big Sexy Baits' Mischief

Big Sexy Baits' Mischief
A Green Pumpkin with Black Mischief.

In the eyes of many anglers, Big Sexy Baits' Mischief is a unique curly-tailed grub.

But in the unique perspectives of Midwest finesse anglers, it is a soft-plastic stick-style bait that is adorned with a delicate and curled tail. Thus, it is a multifaceted bait that will allow them to present it to their black bass quarries with a variety of retrieves.

According to our measurements, it is 2 5/8 inches long when its tail is curled. When the tail is uncurled, it is 4 1/4 inches long.

The tip of its head is flat and round. It is a diameter of three-eighths of an inch and a circumference of 1 5/16 inches. It is one-sixteenths of an inch long. The flat portion of the head has a dimple or indentation, which is where a Midwest finesse angler will insert the hook, collar, or bait keeper of his jig. Except for that indentation, the head’s epidermis is smooth.


Its cylinder-shaped torso is 1 1/2 inches long and enhanced with 15 ribs. At its widest spot, it is about a half of an inch wide with a circumference of about 1 1/2 inches. At rib number 15, which is adjacent to the junction with the tail, the size of the torso diminishes to a width of a quarter of an inch and a circumference of about one inch.


The tail is thin, flat, and curled. At the junction with the torso, the tail is a quarter of an inch wide and about one-sixteenth of an inch thick. About one inch from that junction, the tail has a width of three-sixteenths of an inch. The width decreases to one-eighth of an inch at the tip of the tail. Except for 16 tiny circles that embellish each flat side of the tail, its epidermis is smooth.

It is available in the following hues: Baitfish, Black with Blue, Chartreuse, Cinnamon and Purple, Delavan Pearl, Electric Purple, Green Pumpkin with Black, Motor Oil with Red, Ozark Nightcrawler, Plum and Blue, Rayburn Brown, and Trillum Bronze.

It is not scented.

It is very buoyant, which is an attribute that most Midwest finesse anglers relish.


A package of eight costs $3.99.

  3. Midwest finesse anglers will affix the Mischief to a mushroom-style jig that sports either a number four or a number two hook. In order to create a no-feel retrieve, they will use a lightweight jig, ranging in size from 1/32-ounce to 1/16-ounce to 3/32-ounce. The 3/32-ounce jig will be used when an angler is making long casts and employing a straight swimming presentation. It is also an asset when anglers are dealing with a pesky wind. The 1/32-ounce and 1/16-ounce jigs can be used for the swimming presentation, too. But the 1/32-ounce and 1/16-ounce jigs are essential when Midwest finesse anglers are employing a no-feel swim-glide-and-shake retrieve, hop-and-bounce retrieve, drag-and-deadstick retrieve, drag-and-shake retrieve, and strolling presentation. The 1/32-ounce and 1/16-ounce mushroom-style jigs with a number four hook are less likely to become snagged as anglers retrieve the Mischief around rocks, boulders, brush piles, flooded terrestrial vegetation, emergent aquatic vegetation, and submerged aquatic vegetation.
