***HELP- With lure that needs to be identified ***
« on: February 07, 2012, 09:44:00 AM »
This may be a long shot, but I was hoping that someone might be able to identify what type of soft plastic lure this is in the picture.  I was given these in a clear plastic bag about 3 years ago and they work wonderful.  I am now doing some inventory and would like to replenish them.  The problem is that I have no idea where to get them or what they are called. 

They seem to be in between a tube and grub.  The main part diameter is between a senko and tube and the tail is that of a long grub. The main part of this lure is smooth and does not any ridges or bumps.  Does anyone know what they are called or where I can get more?  Could these have been hand made?

Any info would be greatly appreciated:

They look hand poured to me, based on the texture, but I could be wrong. I can definitely see why they would be productive with that design.

I jumped online and found these searching for ribbon tail grub. Not exactly but close...

That reminds me of baits that Bob in Taunton made 5 or 6 years ago, when he was still on route 138.  I bet DocIrv in Pennsylvania could make that same bait for you though, if you provided a sample to him.

Looks like a Roboworm, but I'm really not sure.

Looks like a long body grub, closest thing for a production worn would be a Yamamoto 6" grub also in 5"too
