The Coontail Worm is the second signature bait designed by BASS Pro Russ Lane. Russ has been working with Big Bite to create a versatile new shape that could be used in a variety of ways. Russ designed the Coontail so that the center core waves thru the bait rather than being in a straight line. This helps with the action and allows it to be rigged for the hook point to have maximum action. It also features a bulb tail which increases the action.
He took in consideration how the bait had to sit on the hook and how the hook point had to come out of the bait easy to get the best hook penetration to up your odds in getting more bass out of heavy cover.
