Culprit Culprit Fat Max Worms

Fish to the max with the Culprit Fat Max! With a thick body and wide tail, the Fat Max Worm is perfect for flipping and pitching in heavy cover—all year-long! The Fat Max's bulked-up body and wide tail displace a considerable amount of water, and it resists snags, too. Because it's thicker, the added weight makes it easier to cast. Better still, the tail design doesn't wrap around cover. And while the Fat Max produces results in waters of all clarities, it is particularly good in stained water around wood, or in clear water around weeds. Made in USA. Thick body and wide tail Ideal for flippin' and pitchin' Easy to cast Enticing tail action Ideal in heavy grass and wood

The black shad Fat Max is the same as the smaller version, so I guess the red shad is the same. I fish for largemouth bass and use Gamakatsu size 5/0 offset shank worm extra wide gap, Texas rigged. 3/0 and 4/0 size hooks also work well.
The worm bodies are 7/16" wide, app. 3" long, with tails app. 4" long, 7" total.

Red Shad color is just like the old Red shad color and I would suggest a 2/0 or 3/0 wide gap off set hook.

answer 5
The red shad color does feture the old version color (black back with a red belly). As for the thickness of the worm, it does have a much thicker profile than a standard curl tail worm. For a 7 inch worm, try using a 4/0 or 5/0 hook.
