Ribbon Tail Worms
The 10 inch Ribbon Tail Worm is one of the best all year big bass baits you can find. Either fished Carolina, Texas rigged, or weightless, the 10 inch worm has incredible action like no other. The curl tail action shimmers in the water and provides a better swimming action than smaller ribbon tails worms.
The Best Ribbon Tail Worm For Bass

Action of the Ribbon Tail Worm
There are many companies that offer a 10" Ribbon Tail worm. Zoom, Yum, & Gambler baits all have their own versions of the bait. What CPF Lures did is take a bait that works well, and enhanced the tail to produce a glimmering action in the water.
When and Where to Use Ribbon Tail Worms
The Ribbon tail worm is normally fished during the summer months when the water is hot. Ribbon tail worms are especially effective in early morning or evening hours. The worm's natural coloration makes it less visible to fish during these times.
This gives the fisherman an advantage when trying to catch fish that are more active during these periods. Often fished around brush or shell bars, you will also find success fishing the worms on a Carolina rig in eel grass.
