    I purchased Kelly’s worm because that’s very curious about what the yellow tag said so I bought it and I live in Bonita Springs Florida. I live in a gated community, and I started out this morning just today on the 15th with a small rubber frog called about 78 and I thought well, I wanna try Kelly’s worm well it was an unbelievable experience. I caught nine in a row moved to the other side of the lake where I normally don’t catch anything from that side of the lake. I caught a four pounder that I could’ve stuck my fist down his mouth and everything I caught they even some of them even followed the worm and I can’t say enough about it. All in all I probably caught 20 largemouth this morning on that purple worm, very very impressed with the product will not be using anything else. I just can’t say enough about this product and I will be buying more. I know there’s some colors that you make that Ace Hardware does not stock. Kelly’s what a product, my hats off to you and have a blessed day. Thank you my thumb is raw from lipping all those bass.

    The greatest asset is the third hook at the end of the tail. I have caught many bass with that third hook.

    fantastic worms. i know its a broken record, but been using since the mid 80s and just cant be beat! i switch to a jig or jerk bait every now and then…but keep this rigged up on the other pole because i’ll be back to it soon in most cases!

    Used to use this in Virginia, great for ” catching that limit” when fishing is tough. Moved to Ohio so just ordered more as they are the Go To Bait for sure !

    My dad starting using Plow Jockeys in the early ‘70s and I liked the Pier Boys better for crappies and bluegills. I have a whole bag of dismantled remnants as they have been destroyed over the years by strikes. I had a new one in a package that I found and saw they were from nearby Ft. Wayne. Thank goodness for the internet.

    The only bait i fish with is the Pier Boy Specials blackberry black… I have fished with these crawlers for forty plus years and will continue to do so… I never take a tackle box… I use the smallest swivels and no sinkers… Just the Pier Boy Specials… They have never failed me…

    Just caught a 4lber and 2lber. 4lber was enormous. No size limit with these baits.

    These are the cat’s @$$ for sure!!! This almost my sole bass bait. Can be fish in to many ways to even start to mention. The best bait for a novice and a pro by far. I’ve boated 60 bass before noon with one friend on more than one occasion with these. Swampberry all the way. Thank you guys for what you do!

    My grandparents, father and uncle taught me fishing growing up in Indiana near Warsaw, we slayed the fish with these baits from the 1960 to current. i now live in WA. state and want to find out to purchase them by the card, I believe there were 20 to a card.

  12. mason

    I dident order them, i bought them at a market in the fishing isle. i got one normal colored one, put in on a snap swivle and BANG, largemouth bass at my local pond destroy it.

  13. Jim (verified owner)

    This is about the only bait I use.largest bass to date is a 4pounder but I am working for bigger.can you make a larger version for the really big bass?i know it would work.thanks for this awesome bait!!!!

      Hi Jim, Have you tried the 3 Hook Bass Crawler? It is a 6 1/2 in. larger and heavier worm with 1 #6 hook in the tail and 2 #4 hooks in the middle and front. I think you would like them.
      Thanks and have fun fishing this season. Using Kellys Bass Worms will keep you smiling while your reeling those fish in.
      🙂 Grace

    My dad and I discovered Kelly worms in the mid 80’s. At the time all that was available in our area was the Reveille Jr. The grape seemed to be the goto color for us, and for the most part, still is. With no such thing as the web, we had no idea there was a larger version. We had always used them for crappie, but seemed to always get a bass or two. So we really wanted a bigger bait. I moved away for work and found out about the 5 1/2″ worms. They did not disappoint! The Pier Boy is now my favorite Kelly. I can honestly say I could count on 1 hand the times I didn’t have a Kelly of some size in my tackle box. I love that they are easy enough to use, that my kids can fish them without issue. Not many baits that really work, you can say that about. Thanks for many years of great fishing!!!

    They work in any state that has water and fish. My friends know they are essential and we buy them a dozen at a time.

  17. Brandon Ludwick

    I have been using these lures sincere I was a kid and for pond fishing there really isn’t anything better. I have watched bass turn 180° around and start stalking this lure. It attracts them like no other. The 3 hooks make sure you rarely loose a fish.

    How do you tie the worm loop leader on to your line???

    • Grace Kelly (verified owner)

      Attach a snap and swivel to the end of the line on your fishing rod. Hook the loop on the snap. It is good to use a snap & swivel, it will keep your line from twisting.
      You can go to the website and look in the “How To fish Kellys”, it will give you a lot of information.
      Thanks for using Kellys……We will make a believer out of you. :))

    The Pier-Boy Special is definitely a go to lure for bass. I don’t get out that often and last week I was at a small lake in PA I just couldn’t hook any largemouth bass with the lures I was using. Then I remembered the success I had previously with this lure – 4 years ago. I switched to the Pier-Boy and within 25 min I caught two nice largemouths. I’m back to the website because I’m ordering more.

    even when the barometer isnt “right” my purple worm finds em everytime. i fish mostly streams and small rivers. i refuse to go without this bait.

  21. ryan

    Absolutely the best bass lure I have ever used! Regularly boat 50+ bass in a day between two guys with these. The fish love them. Can be used so many different ways its ridiculous. Fast, slow, dead stick, slow troll…. ect. Love love love them!!!

  22. rick sellers (verified owner)

    i use these for smallmouth . they are the best i have ever used thanks

  23. David (verified owner)

    The Neutral Clear Tail Pier Boy Special is hands down, the best Bass Lure I have ever used. So easy to fish for the kids as well. Everything bites this lure due to its strong resemblance to a natural worm. I first started using these about 20 years ago when a friend of mine introduced them to me. They have been my go-to bass lure ever since and I have converted dozens of my friends by out-fishing them on so many occasions! 🙂 My two other favorite colours are Black / Chartreuse Fire tail and Purple Fire tail. If you have these 3 on your tackle box you are ready for pretty much any water conditions at the weed line.
