Strike King's Fat Baby Finesse Worm: an Update

Strike King's Fat Baby Finesse Worm: an Update

On Sept. 23, 2012, we published a gear guide that focused on Strike King Lure Company's KVD Fat Baby Finesse Worm.

Recently, a Midwest finesse angler who spends a lot of time perusing the Internet in search for soft-plastic baits informed us that Strike King has created a new series of the Fat Baby Finesse Worm, which are manufactured with an Open Pour Technology Color system. This process creates a worm with laminated colors.

Even though Strike King designed the Fat Baby Finesse Worm to be used with heavier tackle, such as a big football-style shaky-head jig, rather than the finesse jigs that Midwest finesse anglers traditionally employ, this angler thought that we should publish an update about it.  This angler also noted that Midwest finesse anglers are dyed-in-the-wool customizers, and if the Fat Baby Finesse Worm is as effective as the folks at Strike King say it is, Midwest finesse anglers will find a way to affix it to a mushroom-style jig with an exposed hook.  We agreed with him, and here is a 266-word description of the Fat Baby Finesse Worm:

It is five inches long. The diameter of its torso is significantly larger than the torso of the typical finesse worm. It is especially portly in the section that includes its clitellum or egg sack and upper torso.


The portion of its torso above its clitellum to the tip of its head is adorned with 20 distinct ribs, and they line its back and sides. The clitellum is devoid of ribs, and it is smooth skinned.


The portion of its torso from the clitellum to the junction of its tail is endowed with scores and scores of minuscule ribs. And the back or top of its tail in covered with the same kind of minuscule ribs.

Its tail is bigger than the tail on the traditional finesse worm.  It is also graced with a cup, which is designed to provoke more movement than other tails on other finesse worms generate.

Its belly from the tip of its head to the junction of its tail is flat, and it is not adorned with the ribs, and its skin is smooth.

The folks at Strike King proclaim that this design allows the Fat Baby Finesse Worm to exhibit "super action."


It is constructed out of Strike King's Perfect Plastics, which is said to be exceptionally soft, pliable, and salty.  It is also infused with  a coffee scent.

The Open Pour Technology Color Fat Baby Finesse Worm is available in the following colors: Desert Craw, Fire Tiger, Green Pumpkin Purple, Magic, Morning Dawn, Prizm Shad, Pro Blue Neon, Sexy Shad, and Triple Magic.
