I was given 2 of these worms a couple years ago. Ive never used them and Im not real sure how to use them other than wacky rig them.

A quick googling and I can't find very much about them at all. Has anyone used them?

Used them a lot back in the 90's early 2000's
. They work great around reeds and grass. I put a nail weight in them on windy days. The only way I fished them was wacky style. Their not made any more but I still have several packs.

They were deadly on Monticello next to the reeds. Throw them out, let em sink and work them with a light twitch.

Those are sick looking. You should try them on a drop shot for sure. Wacky or nose hooked I bet theyd catch fish.

Just a guess but I bet the holes are there to catch air and give it a little more buoyancy or action.

The holes are a rattle chamber, they use to sell round rattles that were inserted in the holes.

I have a 3700 box full of them from the 90's. Put rattles or small weights in the holes.

Notice that little foot on the left side of the bait. There is not one on the right side. This is where the baits were joined together out of the mold and never was trimmed. I received a package like this and it gave me an idea; so I had a guy in the 90's make a mold to put a tiny foot on both sides. The baits were 6.5 inches. It would fold and spring back like no other wacky worm.
