Daiwa – Coiling, Springing, And Bass Are Waiting

DAIWA EVER GREEN introduces new 12-inch version of Japanese-borne worm perfect for clear water conditions and pressured bass.

Foothill Ranch, CA – Launched in 2023, the original 8-inch Bow Worm Noodle quickly grew in popularity. And now, adding four additional inches of coiling and springing, the new 12-inch Bow Worm Noodle – first available at the upcoming 2024 Bassmaster Classic Expo – is sure to please even more anglers…and bigger bass.  

Although a full foot-long, it’s not another Floridian “speed worm” design. Quite the opposite. The EVER GREEN Bow Worm Noodle is intended for fishing weightless, wacky, Neko, or via dropshot.

For example, when rigged wacky-style or on a dropshot hook, the Bow Worm Noodle undulates and coils with the slightest movement of the rod, the ultra-thin diameter soft plastic pulsing and writhing like a real nightcrawler. Add any amount of current and it’s even more lifelike.

Besides its slinking movement, the Bow Worm Noodle features an EVER GREEN-formulated “Special Formula” scent comprised of real shrimp, squid, and baitfish impregnated into the salt-heavy plastic, thus encouraging more bites and bass to hang onto the artificial offering longer.

“This original 8-incher has been huge for us,” said DAIWA Marketing Manager, Marc Mills. “The interest gained serious momentum through word-of-mouth and social media. Bass anglers are catching lots of fish—and some big ones—on these worms.”

Mills continued: “Unlike most worm designs that are thick, the Bow Worm Noodle is thin, like spaghetti. You can fish them a lot of different ways, but it really comes to life nose-hooked with #4 Mustad light-wire Mosquito hook on a dropshot. Most worms just kind of sit there and maybe move a little bit. The Bow Worm Noodle rolls and flips on top of itself. Bounce your dropshot off a rock and the Bow Worm Noodle will roll up on itself, then extend again,” offers Mills.

“All I can say is it’s money. You can catch everything from average-size fish to Southern California 10- to 12-pounders. When a bass eats it, the worm rolls up in its mouth just like a real worm. They’re awesome—and nobody’s making these. I’m super pumped.”

Looking for the next hot bait for extremely tough conditions like clear waters and highly-pressured lakes? Look no further than the new EVER GREEN Bow Worm Noodle.

Available in #01 Green Pumpkin BK; #11 Dark Plum; #90 Natural Eel; and #135 Special Mimizu.

MSRP $10.99 per pack
