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.

  • Great bait!

    Posted by Tim O. on 16th Sep 2015

    I found that this bait produces good quality fish on a drop shot rig or a small shaky head for finesse fishing.

  • lovin it.

  • Best drop shot worm around

    Posted by Devin Thorpe on 15th Aug 2014

    I love throwing the drop shot rig and these little 5 inch worms are amazing. Texas rig them or nose hook them I always catch fish. Also on though days or in the winter try these guys on a shakey head over the 7 inch tickler. I find you will get more bites.

  • Quickly beginning to be one of my favorites!

    The 5" finicky tickler name says it all! Fished one of the lakes that is very clear and deep, hooked up a drop shot rig and caught a 19 1/2 " bass and 21 1/2 almost back to back, got both of them on the same lure ( baby bass color ), the action is realistic due to the lure being very supple but yet durable!

  • BANG!!!

    Posted by Travis Clemen on 2nd Jun 2014

    The best shaky head worm on the market today. Very little rod movement will make this worm come alive.

  • The Tickler Can Do It All!

    Posted by Unknown on 21st May 2014

    The Tickler is easily the best drop shot worm on the market! It is the perfect shape and size to entice even the most finicky smallmouth. This has also become my go to worm when a shakey head presentation is called for. It has the perfect blend of softness, durability and action. Do yourself a favor and try these out. You will be hooked!

  • Spotted bass Flash

    Fishing blow downs and jerking this back out. Caught several spots off just a few trees in about 20 minutes

  • great bait

    If your expecting a smaller version if the tickler your wrong and write the 5 inch tickler is much smaller and a much more finnese profile it has a tapered length and no bubble tail which makes this bait the perfect and in my opinion one of the best dropshot baits around
