YUM's Swurm

YUM's Swurm

The watermelon-seed Swurm.

YUM's new 4 3/4-inch YUM Swurm has caught the eyes of several Midwest finesse anglers. In these anglers' eyes, it looks as if it will fill a gap in their repertoire of soft-plastic finesse baits that occurred when Z-Man Fishing Products stopped manufacturing the Rain MinnowZ.

The Swurm is a slim, smooth-skinned, and tapered-shaped stick-style bait, which was created for freshwater anglers, who pursue black bass, and saltwater anglers, who pursue inshore species such as redfish, snook, and speckled trout.

Its belly is flat and possesses a hook slot. When Midwest finesse anglers rig the Swurm on a small mushroom-style jig and retrieve it with a swim-glide-and-shake presentation, it will glide and dart, which the folks at YUM call an erratic swimming action. And if these anglers employ it with a drag-and-deadstick retrieve, its slim and tapered body will twitch, quiver, and undulate.


Lawrence Taylor of Fort Smith, Arkansas, who is the public relations manager at PRADCO-Fishing, says anglers can rig it on a split-shot rig and Carolina rig. It can also be affixed to a weightless hook and presented as a Fluke-style bait.


It is endowed with two large eyes, and the iris of each eye is yellow, and the pupil is black.


It is manufactured in 10 colors: Chicken on a Chain, Electric Chicken, Green Pumpkin, Mullet, Pearl Rainbow, Smoke Red Pepper, Sugar and Spice, Swurm Shad, Watermelon Pearl Laminate, and Watermelon Seed.

There are two sizes: 4 3/4 inches and 6 1/4 inches. Most Midwest finesse anglers will elect to wield the 4 3/4-incher.

The suggested retail price for a package of seven is $3.49, and it will be available for anglers to purchase at a variety of retailers in January.
