Bass Can’t Digest Soft Plastic Baits

Bass have strong stomachs, but can’t digest soft plastic baits.

Texoma Hatchery owner, Bob Lusk, observed a very thin bass and the biologist in him couldn’t resist investigating.  After dissecting the fish, he found a soft plastic lure blocking its digestive tract.

The bass in these photos was attempting to swallow both baits.  One, or both, could have been pulled from a hook during a strike.  Or, they could have been struck floating in open water.  Even with this mouthful, it still hit another plastic worm.  Please discard unusable baits with trash, not in the lake.
