If you're after a trophy bass, the worm is probably the best type of lure you can use. Many Bass anglers regard plastic worms as the single most effective lure for big bass. Their long, thin profile and lifelike action suggest a wide range of prey. Yet in spite of their ability to catch bass, worms often are misused and misunderstood. They're a "feel" bait that requires some technique on your part.
It takes many hours of trial and error to master the art of fishing with a plastic worm. Those who are good at it develop an uncanny sense of touch and timing and will frequently pull in the biggest bass. As with most styles of fishing, however, practice is the key. The more familiar you become with the worm, the more fish you catch.
They're an eye contact bait meaning the fish must see it to hit it. Therefore they produce best in clear to stained water. Worms are most effective in warm water (above 55 degrees), especially during Summer. But don't be afraid to use them in the dead of winter - you may be pleasantly surprised.
