YUM's Sharp Shooter

Since mid-summer, one angler on the Finesse News Network has been eager to affix YUM's new Sharp Shooter onto one of his red or chartreuse mushroom-style jigs.

The Sharp Shooter is one of the three new finesse worms that YUM has recently created, and in January, Midwest finesse anglers will be available to purchase it from a variety of retailers.

According to Lawrence Taylor of Fort Smith, Arkansas, who is the public relations manager at PRADCO-Fishing, the Sharp Shooter possesses many of the alluring features of a hand-poured soft-plastic worm. Its belly is flat, which will allow it to glide during many different styles of finesse retrieves. Its torso is soft and thin with a series of minute ribs that extend from the tip of its head to where its tail is attached. Its tail is flat, thin, and shaped somewhat like an arrowhead or a spear. Its torso is endowed with a prominent clitellum, which is smooth and devoid of the minute ribs that grace its torso. One Midwest finesse anglerĀ  says it looks like an arrow, and another said it was as straight as an arrow.


It is manufactured in two sizes: 4 1/2 inches and six inches.


The folks at PRADCO say that it was designed as a drop-shot worm. Of course, very few Midwest finesse anglers will rig it on a drop-shot rig. Instead, they will affix it to a small jig, which PRADCO acknowledges is a very effective way to catch largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, and spotted bass with the Sharp Shooter.

It is available in eight colors: Bold Bluegill, Green Pumpkin, Green Pumpkin/Purple Flake, Ghost Shad, Morning Dawn, Ox Blood/Red Flake,

Watermelon Candy, and Watermelon Seed.

The suggested retail price for a package of 20 4 1/2-inchers and package 15 of six-inchers is $2.99.
