William Fields – Stevens Point, Wisconsin
Lure: Tri-Alive™ Meeny
Fish Caught: Bass, Smallmouth
The bleeding shiner pattern replaces a motor oil pattern of about 15 yrs ago[Mister Twister 4 "] I purchased the last 3 bulk packages I could find at Bass Pro Shops[Springfield Mo]. Reason, I fish smallmouth on a stretch of the Wisconsin River where the previous pattern outfished all others 3 or 4 to 1. In July and August, I averaged 10-15/hr and all are 1 1/2 to 4 lbs. Using uncolored lead-head 1/8 oz and bouncing in fast current.
I could not find a similar pattern as I had run out of the motor oil. Cream[purple/black line] had been working but not like the pevious pattern. You have hit a Homerun in my eyes with this pattern. Friend and I on the river for 2 hrs and I had 33 to his 16. Don't ever discontinue this pattern, please.
I have already been stocking up just in case.
P. S. Water is iron-stained and sun or cloud conditions do not matter. Fish are there and concentrate when water levels are down.

Lure: Keeper™ Worm Hooks
Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Perch, Yellow
The weighted worm is the Best.
I use them all the time, especially the smallest size.
It's great for finesse fishing from the bank with a 4" worm.
Works every time.
It's my GO TO bait. It catches panfish to bass.
Cut-Rate Tackle here in Houston used to have them.
I can't find them anywhere--Help a guy out, please.
The last ones I have are getting pretty worn,
I'm guarding them carefully.
Oh yeah, the Mepps Spinners are real fish catchers, panfish eat them up.

I have used the TwisterMite in bass tournaments for the past couple of seasons and found them to work very well in a couple of circumstances.
I use the TwisterMite as a split shot rig. When fish get tight lipped, rig a TwisterMite on a Finesse style hook ( I use the Gamakatsu Extra-Wide Gap Finesse) either with or without a weedguard. Place a split shot on your line about a foot above the bait and then shake it. Adjust the distance of the split shot for the desired action.
The other way is on a drop shot rig. Depending on the bottom composition, adjust your bait so it is up where the fish can see it. Another similar way to fish a TwisterMite is above a jig worked along the bottom.
Drop me a note with your success story.
