I have several packages of the Zoom trick worm-which I thought floated-but they don't. They're
supposed to so maybe I got a bad batch?

So whats the best floating worm out there-that actually floats.

Im pretty sure it floats pretty well weightless?

Throw it on a spinning setup with braid with a fluro leader and it should float pretty well.

Trick worms fall slowly and can be worked weightless near the surface but don't actually float. Roboworms are an example that actually float. Some worms have air pockets or differen material that makes the tail float. I like the Kicker Fish Hole Shot worm - the tail floats up. There is a YouTube video where several baits are compared in an aquarium - don't remember site but shouldn't be hard to find.

A kicker hightail is a great floater. If a worm has salt injected into it, it will more then likely lay on the bottom. If your looking for a floating worm look for some without the salt. That is usually a tell tale. I like the kicker hightail series. Looks and works awesome on a shaky head!

Yea I just told him how I throw it weightless is all. I actually tie it off to a small swivel to give it just a little more weight its all a preference thing. We all know someone has a better way to fish a certain product in their eyes. Not saying thats what you were implying its just the TFF way

ive had hard time finding true floating worms. They are usually mixed in with regular worm bags so have to find yhe bags that have it printed on them. bought mind at BPS but they don't know that they have them and if you ask for help locating they just say they all float. I'd lile to find a better selection oc colors also

Yup. Z Man Elaztech plastics float like none other. I'm pretty sure they're the most buoyant plastics on the market.

Somebody mentioned the roboworm as a worm that floats-I've bought 20+ bags of this worm since this
summer and none of them floated, not one.
