    Post Mystery Worm - please help with manufacturer

    More Winter Season Gear Inventory - a Mystery Worm - please help with manufacturer. It is a 6" worm, laminate, snake head and ribs down the body, straight tail. Other clues are that it came from a clearance bin in a Walmart in Arkansas a couple of years back. Even though the color is not consistent throughout the batch I still love the worm, the action and the color. Does it look familiar? Who might have manufactured this worm and sold it to Walmart for distribution in their stores?





    Thanks in advance for your help. I'd like to purchase a gross of these things (or one that looks like it) as they've worked very good for me in multiple occasions and many lakes. Closest I've gotten is the Roboworm FX Straight Tail Worm in Aarons Magic (greenie weenie color) but the light laminate is more the Natural Blue of a Zoom Swamp Crawler and overall shape is much like the Zoom Magnum Shakey Head Worm but it's beefier in size on the head end and down most of the body. Yes, I'm addicted to plastic worms. Admitting I have a problem is the first step, right? There is a Magnum Shakey Head, Green Weenie that may become my substitute even though it doesn't have the other detail that this worm has... Are we having fun yet?

    I think your going about it all wrong. It's not a worm lure, I'm almost 99% positive that it's either an Eel or Sand eel lure...It looks almost exactly like a Storm 6in wild eye sand eel. Which are very common at your Wal-Mart's, Sports Authority, Dicks, etc, etc...

    Searching Storms website, it seems the 6in Wild Eye Sand Eel has been discontinued. Here's a pic of what they looked like in the package, you can see the similarities. They came in several colors.

    The 6in Wild Eye Sand Eel looks like it. The packages are long gone as these were mixed with a Zoom Natural Shad Swamp Crawler. They work great in freshwater too! I 'fished them on Texas & Carolina rigs and even on a shakey head jig. Thanks for your keen eye & fine assistance.
