Kalin's Sizmic Wac-O-Worm

Kalin's Sizmic Wac-O-Worm

Uncle Josh Bait Company began to slowly introduce its Kalin's Sizmic Wac-O-Worm to the fishing world in April.

It is a traditional stickbait that  is manufactured in two sizes: four inches and five inches.

It was designed to be rigged wacko-style, and Brandon Card of Caryville, Tennessee, who competes in the Bassmaster Elite Series and Bassmaster Opens, likes to employ it around boat docks after the spawn. To do this, he wields it on spinning tackle without a sinker and rigged wacky style on a 3/0 Gamakatsu split shot/drop shot hook. He skips it under the boat docks. Then he allows it to slowly plummet, and as it plummets, it flutters. After the plummeting portion of the presentation ceases, he begins a twitching-and-swimming retrieve.

It can also be rigged Texas-style with a slip sinker or without one, or on a Carolina rig, or on a drop-shot rig.


Periodically, some Midwest finesse anglers will work with a weightless wacky rig. But most of the time, they would prefer to rig the Sizmic Wac-O-Worm on a 1/16- or 3/32-ounce Gamakatsu Finesse Wacky Jig Head.


On most outings, however, Midwest finesse anglers will prefer not to rig the Sizmic Wac-O-Worm wacky style. Instead, they will affix it strait as an arrow on a 1/16-ounce Gopher Tackle's Mushroom Head Jig or a 1/15-ounce Z-Man's Fishing Products' Finesse ShroomZ jig, and the hook will be exposed. In regard to the five-inch rendition, Midwest finesse anglers will customize it by cutting it in half and making it a 2 1/2-inch stickbait, and this 2 1/2-inch rendition will be affixed to the Gopher or Z-Man's jig the same way as the four-inch is rigged.


This is the green-pumpkinseed Wac-O-Stick.

It is available in seven colors: Baby Bass, Black/Blue Flake, Green Pumpkin Magic, Green Pumpkinseed, Junebug, Watermelon Seed Red Flake, and Watermelon Seed Red Pearl. It is impregnated with garlic and salt.

A package of 10 can be purchased for $5.49 on Uncle Josh's website, and another online retailer is selling a package of 10 five-inchers for $4.99.
