Gene Larew has introduced yet another great product. The Tube Worm, a cross between tubes and the ever so popular stick baits, the Tube Worm will be a producer of some big stringers.
Some of the features of the Tube Worm are the oversized rings, a tapered body and short tube like tentacles. The oversized rings add bulk, causing a slow erratic fall and the innovative ring design has proven to increase your hook up ratio.
Products: Tube Worm, Floating Lizard, Mega Ring Shad, and the Fat Tail Tube
I recently was given the chance to field test four products from Gene larew, the 6" Tube Worm, 6" Floating Lizard, 4.5" Mega Ring Shad, and the 4.5" Fat Tail Tube. All of the baits were in watermelon or pumpkin/red and were of high quality. I was impressed with all of them, especially the unique Tube Worm.
Products: Floating Finesse Craw, Baby Hoo Daddy, 4" Tube Worm
These craws are salt impregnated, garlic scented, and three inches long. At Mt. Pisgah State Park, Towanda, Pa., I fished two colors (black/ blue with blue pinches and green pumpkin) as a jig trailer on a 1/8-ounce jig. I used a black jig with the black/blue craw and a brown craw jig with the green pumpkin craw.
Bass fishermen are learning what Italians have known for centuries - garlic is hot! As Emeril Lagasse would say, Gene Larew has decided to "kick it up a notch" with their Garlic scented tubes worms. I recently spent some time experimenting with the 4" size.
I was delighted when Bassin USA asked me to do a product review on Gene Larews products. First, let me assure you I have tested hundreds of products from various companies, some have not met my expectations while others have blown me away. I always give a fair and impartial review of any product. I NEVER test products in local farm ponds or any other private waters. All my testing is done in waters open to the public, under the same conditions potential users would face. I do not wait for the perfect conditions, in fact, I try to test products under good and extreme fishing situations.
Products: Baby Mega Ring Shad, Floating Series Finesse Craw
When first looking at Gene Larew's Baby Mega Ring Shad it presented a challenge on how to rig it. The lure looked like it was going to have possibilities, but it was uncertain as to what the best approach would be to unlock the full fish catching potential.
