V&M Wild Thang Review by Bobby Saffel



V&M Wild Thang Review

Here in the south even though its fall, the water is warm and the fish still have a big appetite. One bait has been has been on my deck all summer and will continue until the fish give me reason to put it up and that’s a 10″ worm. A big worm is a time aged bait that catches fish day in and day out. The V&M Wild Thang is a unique worm and has been a constant producer for me. Today I will tell you what sets this worm apart from the rest.


First thing that catches my eye is the unique tail on the bait. It has a thick side and a thin side. This design helps the tail to put off vibrations in the water and helps fish find the bait. It’s also stiffer than a regular ribbon tail so it doesn’t have the tendency to wrap around a limb and hang. Another feature on the bait is the whole bait is mostly tail. I like this because it really increases the action of the whole bait.


The quality of plastic that’s used is great. I’ve personally been catching several fish on a worm before time to change. This is one bait that really holds together for the long haul.
Currently the Wild Thang comes in nine colors and three different sizes: 6.5″, 8.5″, and 10.5″.


When rigging the 8.5″ and 10.5″ I prefer a Trokar TK-120 MagWorm hook in a 6/0 size. I like a 1/4 or 3/8 oz weight. This keeps the head down and allows the tail to kick. For rod and reel it’s a Dobyns DX 744 with a Shimano Curado I 7.1 with 17 pound fluorocarbon or 50 pound braid depending on the conditions.

I hope you have a chance to check this worm out and other V&M products. You can purchase these at TackleWarehouse and www.bayououtdoors.com.
