Big baits work.  I carry 10 inch worms, 10 inch lizards, and now GY has a 12 inch worm too. 

If you remember, there was a story in Bassmaster a few years ago about a guy who was studying bass behavior in an observation pond behind his house.  He witnessed a bass come out of the water and grab a robin that was at the edge of the pond.  That really made me believe that bass are nothing more than a freshwater shark.  They are opportunistic feeders.

I've caught 8" bass on Ole Monster worms in Michigan....

One time I was fishing down a bank and I spied a walnut sitting on a log overhanging the edge of the water. I looked around and thought ...that's strange, I don't see a walnut tree! A chipmunk came down and started nibbling on the walnut. All of a sudden SPLOOSH, a pike took the chipmunk right off the log. I turned to my partner and said "Wow did you see that!" A few seconds later the pike came up and set the walnut back up on the log....

Danny... you should stick to the 7" ones until you're a little older.
