We recently received this message from one of our readers, “I used to be able to purchase a plastic worm that was around 3 inches long with two hooks. It was primarily designed for panfish and the one I liked has a black body with a yellow stripe from the head to the tail. I can’t find them anymore and I would like to purchase more. Is this possible?”
Although we consider ourselves to have a plethora of worm and worm-related knowledge, we don’t consider ourselves experts on plastic worms that are used for fishing. We will do our best to examine our reader’s inquiry and provide information and answers.
A panfish is an edible game fish that is generally small enough to fit in a frying pan. The term panfish can also refer to any edible freshwater or saltwater fish that are small enough to fit in a frying pan, but big enough to be legal to fish. There are plenty of fishing hooks that are designed specifically for capturing panfish. We weren’t able to find an exact match to the hook our reader mentioned, but there are countless online websites that sell fishing hooks, and perhaps our reader can find something similar to the 3 inch plastic worm with two hooks that he described. Since our reader didn’t tell us where he lives, we can’t direct him to any specific stores in his area that might have the product he is looking for. All that said, we did find a lure that looks like a black worm with a yellow stripe, which our reader can check out here.
To wrap up, a reader asked us about where he can purchase a plastic worm fishing hook that is 3 inches long, has a black body with a yellow stripe from head to tail, and has two hooks. Unfortunately, we don’t know of a specific store where he can buy this item, but we gave him a suggestion for something similar that he can purchase online. If any of our other readers have advice about where he can get these types of hooks, we invite them to comment on this post.
