Add a teaspoon of miracle grow to your plastic.   Then place in a sunny window and water regularly?   Sorry, I couldn't resist.

The original Thump Grub was an instant hit with walleye guys who fish the Mississippi River up here. When I got the mold I shot up about 200 samples, many of the bait pictures shown here and stopped at one of the better launch/bait facilities [Everts Resort] near the Red Wing dam on a few occasions with those in tow and the popularity was instant with many of the better anglers that start their fishing trips there. For a while now I have been playing with some sample baits from the new, smaller molds that Jerry made up for me in a couple different pet colors and those have ben HOT with the fall crappie bite and the larger of the two has nailed some nice fall walleye and sauger.

Like the expanded Mo's bait mold and the broad Small Fry mold size selections, these two new Thump Grub bait molds really help round out this clan Do-It of baits. Paddletail baits as a family are one of the most versatile baits a person can fish. These from Do-It molds have a very nice balance between the tail diameter/thickness and that all important web between the tail button and body. The tails are very active but not so much so that weakness in the web allows those tails to be bitten off easily. The two new small baits I have had the pleasure of using have been winners. I am positive that the molds will be too. I hope to find out for sure soon.

I bet those small ones will be good on a roadrunner jig for summer trolling.

Well I took the plunge and bought the 1.5" today.  The 2.5" was a little too big for my likings.  Wish they offered a 2" in it.  Maybe one day.  I believe the 1.5" will be a good winter time bait around here.

I would love to see a 2" myself with a tail mold. The 1.5 was too small for me and the 2.5 was too big. I did pinch the head and first 2 ribs off the 2.5 and it was a dead hit on what I want.
I'd rather be fishin'...

For personal use I'd cut part of the 2.5" off but I'm looking to sell it too so cutting it off wouldn't work for me. I'll hold my breathe for a 2".

I would buy both if there were a tail mold any plans to make them?

So far this spring the 1.5" Thump It has ruled the roost for my crappie, sunfish, and smallie. It's been three weEks since any other plastic has seen a jig of mine regardless of whether I am casting a jig without a float or fishing the bait under a float. For that matter I could call a "tackle box" 3 zip lock bags of three different colors of the bait along with another bag of 1/32 headsandaspare cork....all carried in a pocket. So far this spring I have caught 13 different species of fish on the small Thump It including a 22 pound carp.

In my mind the whole Thump It line is the most aggressive bait collection that Do It has designed the molds for. The only thing missing from the shortie of the Thump It family is a tail mold. That would be the Coup de Gras.

I agree with all the others on a tail mold. I would also like to see a six or eight inch thump grub to fish pike and musky with.
