Used to fish those a lot. Not sure if they still make em or not. Think they called it the 6” Super Grub or something like that. If memory serves me correctly, they might have even made an 8”.

This one is probably 8" counting the curl. Haven't been able to find them online.

I believe this is the Yamamoto Stretch 40. Hope that’s what you’re looking for.

Yamamoto made a 8" and a 10" grub but it now discontinued . They also make a stretch 40 that is just like it except smaller.

On e-bay there is a guy that sells 8" Yamamoto Grub in Black with a Blue tail and sometimes in other colors

I use it a lot in Florida , Also if you have an extra $2500 Gary will do a run for you.

hat appears to be what the guy on Ebay is doing . Buying in bulk and selling . Its appears to be new stock.

I use them a lot and like them a lifetime supply wouldn't be bad to have

This was a great bait but apparently it must not of sold well. It's one of my favorite spinnerbait trailers, I'd bite it off to the length I wanted as a trailer. I'd also C-Rig it, and fish it in the Delta with a light weight 1/8 to 3/16 and swimming it/dragging it along. I'm thankful I have a supply rat holed :) :)

That was a great bait on big bass lakes like Clear Lake and Amador. Large bass feed on BULK1 They like bigger meals such as a trout, if available. One of the best night baits I have ever used for trophy bass. If you are fishing low light conditions or at night, you need a large bait to attract their attention. While I think the 7 inch Power Worm is the best night bait I have ever used, I would always bite off a 10 inch Power worm to about 8 inches, offering a more enticing meal for a trophy bass.
