With warmer temperatures approaching, the bass will soon be in a finicky mood. Lock jaw bass in summer patterns often require a smaller profile finesse presentation in order to turn less than favorable conditions into a great day of fishing. The PowerTeam Lures 5" Finicky Tickler is a finesse bait that is just the right size to receive strikes from the finicky bass in warm water temperatures. It also has a texture and flavor that make the bass hold on for a solid hook set.


The 5" Finicky Ticklers are shot with the high quality soft plastic and impregnated with a special blend of scents and salt during the injection process. This special blend, known as Sow Chow, contains the right amount of salt that gives the bait the perfect level of buoyancy to create a tempting action that helps draw strikes from finicky bass. One taste of the "special blend" and the bass cannot let go.


These finesse worms have a textured design that imitates a live forage presentation. The lifelike texture of the bait helps to keep bass from expelling the bait once taken. The Finicky Ticklers are available in fifteen colors to suit the needs of any condition, in any water clarity, depth or cover that the fish may be holding in. The small profile design is ideal for tough conditions when downsizing and slowing down are a must to catch bass.


Summer is definitely the season for the subtle horizontal quiver of a 5" Finicky Tickler on the end of your dropshot hook to entice a bite from the most stubborn bass. They are also very enticing on a shaky head. This versatile miniature worm shows promise to load livewells no matter how it is rigged.


In field test using Smoke with black, purple and gold flake, the bait performed well on a dropshot rig in eight to ten feet of stained warm water on a blue bird day, which is not the best of conditions. The bait was catching finicky bass when other baits just did not produce. The scent and salt combined with the action of the bait added to the catch in less than favorable conditions. The generous amount of 12 baits in the package added value to the already impressive quality of the product, making this angler more than satisfied not only with the creel but the cost savings as well. With the Finicky Tickler being available in all many popular colors, you will know when you hear someone say, "the fish just weren't biting today," that they had been throwing something else.
