Definitely way cold this morning, even down here in the southern end of RI.

Great job landing 10 bass today.  :thumbup:

I think today would have been a great day to be out there too!

I use 2 O-rings criss-crossed

I don't fish wacky rigs, but if I did, this would be the way I would rig them.  :nod:

Weird. For some reason it keeps removing the link to the pic  :hmm:

Never mind. I just attached it instead of linking to it.

I hit the water with @Bob W - RI this weekend. We boated 20 bass between us. This was my kicker for the night, weighing 5.20 lbs.

@Brazzy I put this together to explain who I rate the products on Tackle test.

My only feedback on this would be that you give an awful lot of reviews 5 stars.

You're right. I do give a lot of 5 star ratings. And I knew someone would mention that sooner or later.  (giggle)

First, I do have a couple reviews coming up that will be less than 5 stars.

Second, I tend to do homework before I buy a product, so it helps to keep me from buying very many things that are poor quality.

And in my reviews I give a lot of info about the product, which I do purposely to be thorough in my review and to back up the rating that I give.

I can think right now of a few past reviews that I gave 4 stars, and one that I gave a 2 star rating, and when I did so, I also explained why.

Hopefully this will explain the why and the how.

Back in July I started testing a new set of non-piercing cull tags.

After using them for 3 months, I have put together a thorough review of them here:

I know who manufactures the baits for Big Bite Baits. Their stick worms are not good when it comes to the action. And their density/casting distance is also terrible.

I personally use the Kelle Stick, made by Lewis & Wright Bass Fishing Technologies. I've been buying their stick worms for about 5 years now.

They are as good, if not better than the "real" Senko. They are soft, but don't tear quite as easily as the Senko. They cost half of what the Senko costs. And their action is dead on to what the Senko does. Oh, and they cast like rockets too, just like the Senko does.

The big thing with all of these worms is making sure that they are dense/heavy enough to perform well on the cast and with the action they have after they hit the water.

Many of the cheap knock offs have terrible action and they don't cast nearly as well as the Senko.

With the Kellee Stick, I don't sacrifice any quality at all.

I have also tried the Yum Dinger, which works very well too. I have caught lots of fish on them over the years (not recently, though).

I have not fished with the Bass Pro stick worms yet, but I have read a lot of great reviews on them.

Personally, when it comes to buying stick worms from major retailers, I would choose the Yum Dinger myself if I wasn't able to buy the Kellee Sticks.

And speaking of the Kellee Sticks, I actually don't know if they will be available any longer, since the owner has undergone some health challenges in the last year or so. Time will tell.  :hmm:
