Nervous typifies the action that every angler wants to impart on their bait as a trophy bass closes in, and the Owner Nervous Rex does just that almost on its own. A lifelike twitch bait constructed from Owner’s super soft plastic, it swims with a great side-to-side darting action and has a tail that quivers in the stillest environments and slightest currents. The Nervous Rex also features hook slits on both the top and bottom of its body for weedless applications and solid hooksets. Available in several proven fish catching colors, the Owner Nervous Rex is also loaded with Owner’s Tasty Scent for added fish attraction.

Comments: "Nervous" does indeed describe the action of this bait very well. No need to jerk it hard, a gentle twitch will make it dart in a very convincing way. The almost 6 inch length is just perfect if you're looking for something a bit bigger than the typical five incher, yet stay under the massive 7" flukes. Two things to keep in mind: This lure will run very close to the surface when used weightless, which may or may not be a plus for you. The other thing is the bottom hook slit isn't very deep and I feel the need to put an X-Acto to it so the hook has less plastic bunching up in the bend. Worth the trouble to fully exploit the great action. So far, bass, pike and trout have given it a thumbs up!
