In late October, an out-of-state bass angler visiting Keith’s Toledo Bend Tackle near Hemphill, Texas, asked the owner if there was a new artificial lure worth a try before fishing a bass club tournament at nearby Lake Sam Rayburn.
Keith Nabours thought about it a few minutes, then said he tells customers who really want to catch bass to fish an oldie but goldie — a Zoom Trick Worm in red bug color. Hundreds and hundreds of anglers have been sold on the soft-plastic worm over the years, hooked on it, you might say, just like the bass they target.
Charlie King of Coushatta, a town 45 miles south of Shreveport on US 71, knows first-hand what Nabours was talking about. He has been catching bass consistently on a red bug Trick Worm.
King, who runs Charlie King Professional Fishing, started guiding part-time in 1991 and went full-time after he retired as a registered nurse in 2014. He has fished FLW and BASS tournaments circuits off and on for 30 years, and he’s been relying on red bug Trick Worms since 2008.
