Zoom Zoom® Ultravibe® Speed Worm - 5-3/4"

Realistic lookSuper softSalt-impregnatedThere are plastic baits, and then there are Zoom baits. The difference is undeniable. Want proof? Just take a peek into your favorite tournament angler's tackle box, and start counting the Zoom bags. For those who lay it on the line every time out, there can be no other choice. Every Zoom soft plastic bait is wholly realistic, super-soft to the touch (for the extra action needed to pull that reluctant money fish) and salt-impregnated to hold even the most tentative bite.

I always used the following adage, "hook up-Tail down. Most of my applications were Texas rigged with glow in the dark beads and propeller combinations as i usually fish at night here in Arizona. I also used a slow retrieve which I found to me the most effective, ie the fish told me!

Texas rig is the primary method that I use with these worms, although when the bass are hitting at the surface, I will lose the bullet weight and swim / twitch the lure across the water. This method makes for some pretty strikes.

Weightless , 3/0 offset shank worm hook - Tail down . Line up hook with seam from tail - exit 1/4-3/8" down from nose and then bury back into the same seam so worm hangs straight - Tight Lines

Now your asking people to give away their secrets, but ill tell you one way to use them. Rig up a carolina rig with about 24 inches of line between your swivel and hook. Then choose your egg weight depending upon how deep the water is at your favorite hole. I like a pretty slow sinking rig, so from 12 ft down to about 6ft ill use a 3/16 egg weight. Under 6 I go to a 1/8. Cast it out and slow retrieve it so the worm is at a downward angle .

answer 11
Tail down on a Texas Rig. I also put a small nail in the back so it falls flat or cut the tail off and fish it wacky style because it will fall slower that a Senko style bait.

Either a 1/8 or 1/4 ounce black screw in bullet works best for me . I prefer lead because the diameter matches up with the bait.

answer 3
These worms cast well with their own weight but when i used weight is was always a 1/16 oz Tungsten. I place this weight in front of a glow in the dark beads and propeller combination. This really allowed me to use the worm through out the water column with a count down technique. I always used red tungsten for red bug color.

1/8 oz either black or red. Just to fish on the bottom. Most of the time I don't use a weight because I like to fish it around and through Lilly Pads. Tungsten weights are good because of the smaller size.

I just use a regular lead, 1/8th ounce bullet weight and I pretty much keep that same setup, unless the fish are close to the surface. In that case, I lose the weight and twitch the worm across the surface with a steady retrieve.

I don't think color matters on a drop shot rig. Lead is ok for me.

answer 8
That depends on what depth your trying to fish them at. If your using them in shallow water, i.e. 3-4ft or less then use a 1/16 or 1/8 ounce, whichever you can effectively cast. For these light weights I wouldnt pay the extra money to use a tungsten weight. I only use tungsten when going up to 3/8 or 1/2 ounce. In certain situations like gin clear water I do believe that the gray shiny metal of a standard lead weight can catch a gleam and spook fish so I usually paint my weights flat black. In tungsten, if your that nuts about it you can buy the new colored weights and try to match it up with the color or plastic that you are using, but the guy next to you who is just using black will probably catch just as many fish.

We use lead. We have caught several big bass 8 to10 pounds on Carolina Rigs using 1 oz. egg sinkers. Try dipping the tail with Spike-it Chartreuse with garlic.
