How to greatly improve your "Curly-Tail" worms and grubs

Some people already know this, but for those that do not.. Get a coffee mug of almost boiling water, (2 minutes in the microwave) and dip just the tail portion of your curly tail grub into the hot water for about 30 seconds.  Use something to hold the bait so you don't burn your fingertips, like tweezers or pliers.   What this hot water has done is that it softens the plastic tail of this bait so it will have much more action and movement in the water,  especially with a very slow retrieve.  I boil all my new curly tail worms and grubs, especially the little tiny ones that normally have no action except at a fast high speed retrieve.  The improved action is really good!  If you want, you can also use hot coffee, fresh out of the thermos while on the lake, but it has to be quite hot.  And don't worry, it won't hurt the coffee or the taste of it.  I've done this many times..

That is a great tip! I used to cut off a bit of the tail on the inside of the "turn" to get a better kick, took a bit of guesswork sometimes.

I love plastic worms and grubs! That probably comes from growing up in Texas fishing for Bass. Plastic worms were always the 'go to' weapon.

I have to say that I love this tip. Actually I only 'liked' it when I read the first half of your post Komori, but that turned to love it when I got to the coffee part. I did a career in the Navy where we used coffee for everything!

However, this is now my favorite other uses for coffee tips. And a damn good fishing tip as well! cheers
