Speed/Vibe worm?

Recommended Posts

How many of you guys throw these? I've never thrown one before and have noticed this year in the first couple Elite tourneys that a lot of guys throw them. A lot of them just slowly reel them in. I spoke with a fishing buddy about this recently and he said he always has one tied on. I sure hope I haven't been missing out on something.

I picked some up a few years ago to try and honestly don't know if I've got a fish on one.  Love the idea behind them but I dunno if I'm just not using them when I should.

Never tried one of those, but years ago I would just reel a t-rigged worm over pads in the northern lakes. It always caught some fish. Back then the article I read about it, called it, "Speed Wormin". That's the fun thing with baits, so many different ways to fish them. I never swam worms alot otherwise, but I'm sure it would work.

Just got Back from Fleet Farm in Baxter here and they have a bunch of the Yum Speedworms on clearance for 50% off so I bought 5-6 packs.  Need to do more testing I guess :)

    • Pumper don't forget to register your bird.
    • Had 3 long beards come out gobbl8ng and running but not to me.  Had them all fired up but they obviously had another destination in mind.
    • I didn’t know grackles fished either.  Interesting. 
    • Was checking back to see you with a bird pic @Borch
    • So this is not a new thing!  Interesting.  I keep finding more and more complex behavior in so many of these "dumb" animals!  So many of them are anything but dumb.
    • When I was a kid, we used to have a pond in our yard. We would keep fish and minnows in there. The grackles would clean in out! We had to resort to putting a cover over it.
    • Last Thursday on a visit to my sister in Rock Rapids IA, we made a circuit through the Island Park there.  At the low dam just past the former railroad bridge which is now a walking path we saw a group of grackles fishing at the edge of the white water where it ran against the rocks at the shore line.  There probably were a dozen or so all told moving back and forth and some on the rocks at the other shore line.  In something like half an hour or less we saw various of the birds bring out minnows and eat them on the shore to a total of at least 8.  They also contested for the better fishing spots and tried to horn in on other birds' catches;   they would fly out to quite a bit up on shore with a catch to eat it there. I never expected to see grackles fishing.  I never heard of that before, but then it wouldn't be the first time I didn't know about something relatively common.
    • I've seen deer there, too.  I go by there on my way to work about 3:30 am S S & M.
    • Now they're gobbling...  seem to be getting a little closer.
