 A 4'' finesse worm is usually what I grab first.

3.75” Super stinger is more fluke style in shape and a round shape to the head.

4” Minna is flat sided and stays down with less weight in current

Yamamoto is 3.75 and kinda like the minna.

This bait has been the top money winner this year in tournaments were drop shot was the thing the majority of the Guys had in there hand. But they are hard to come by because of that.

I had been using the Berkeley general 4” and had good success with it but I’m getting back into making my own baits again and hate to buy a mold or two just to find out the bait doesn’t produce or doesn’t produce as well.
