Ask any bass and they'll be the first to tell you, sometimes they just want to be teased a little bit in order to get them to snack. Like this whole thing is some kind of a big game to them or something. Like they could care less about the emotional trauma anglers put themselves through on tough days! Like they could care less if we fell into a state of depression and never went fishing ever again! Yea, they're ruthless like that people. But once you finally wake up and smell the coffee and accept the fact that we mean absolutely nothing to the bass, you have taken the first step towards recovery. So what's the second step you ask? Well according to world renowned therapists at Johns Hopkins University, fishing with the 5" Finicky Tickler will unquestionably help you gain control over your life again regardless of how deeply the bass have scarred you. And it's so simple! A little twitch here, a little shake there, a little jiggle here, a little wiggle there….and WHAM! That's right biotch! Who's your daddy now!! Wanna play games with my emotions?? Well who's in the driver seat now you slimy, self-centered, ungrateful fish!!! Yea that's right! Bow to your leader and get in the box!!!! I AM YOUR WORST NIGHTMARE!!!!! (On a side note, my personal therapist says I have only 4 more sessions with the Finicky Tickler and my entire life will be back in order. Not that I needed therapy or anything…I just needed someone to talk to). So if you want to save yourself thousands of dollars on therapy sessions, grab yourself some Finicky Tickers and conquer your own demons. Although at the moment you may be an emotional mess, remember that you're a strong person inside and we know you can beat this! And please know that we'll always be here for you. Everything is going to be okay champ, everything is going to be okay.


Bob's Tech Tip

When I'm fishing this bait, I'm either drop shotting it or have it rigged on a Pea Head getting my shakey on. Either way, it's a great producer during a really tough bite. And if you are drop shotting it, don't overwork the bait. Just go easy with it, nice and easy. This is one of those situations where less is more.

    I've had great success with these worms for years and I've now used most of your products and have had great success with them as well
    Love the durability of the plastic and the colors don't fade or run. Very satisfied.

    The Finicky 5" Tickler is an outstanding dropshot bait comparable to Robo worm. The bait is sturdier than other worm brands and stays on the hook longer even after catching fish. I Usually catch 3 to 5 fish on the same worm, although re-hooking may be required. I have caught up to 9 keeper size bass on the same worm.

    Awesome , Great go to bait on those days when you no there down there , but can't get them to bite anything else. My best bites with this tickler has been in 10 to 15 feet of water. here in New Jersey the bass get a lot of pressure so it's a great go to bait. I usually throw this on a 7' med action rod from castaway rods with a quatum throttle 30 series reel and 10 pound p-line florocarbon. Thanks and good fishing every one.

    Drop shot heaven. Awesome bait. These Finicky Ticklers are great on dropshots. You can try them on a shakeyheads Peahead to be more precise lol. Light Texas rig as well these bad boys slay these slabs. I highly recommend

    This bait i haven't used yet . But will be a guaranteed smallie killer on dropshot. I cannot wait to put these to work. The mold is brilliant.

    What a product. When nothing else is working I can always put a finicky tickler on and catch fish. This product last longer than any drop shot ive used and even when the head gets tore I can snip off the tore end and keep on catching fish.

  • Works very good on farm pond bass.

    I got to try these out on our farm pond bass and they ate the bait up, caught twenty bass in a little over a hour. Fishing it on a light texas rig and on a drop shot rig.

  • Perfect Drop Shot Bait

    Posted by Brian S. on 13th Jul 2016

    I enjoy the subtle action of these plastics for drop shot! When I need a bait to get a little deeper than my wacky worm can go, I love fishing this bait for largemouth and smallmouth! Each pack of PowerTeam Lures comes with a small dose of Hog Tonic as well. That Gives these baits additional firepower to get bass to bite even in the most difficult of conditions!
