Anglers Discover New Species of Creature – The YUMphibian

FORT SMITH, AR – Soft-plastic creature baits need to blend tremendous water disturbance for attraction, yet present the appearance of being an easy meal. The new YUMphibian by YUM Soft Plastics captures both of these traits. The supple body is soft enough to undulate and swim but durable enough to catch several fish without tearing, and the multiple appendages kick out more water displacement and disturbance than any other creature bait. With two small swimming arms at the top, a pair of longer curl tails at the end and two big “flappers” at the midpoint, this critter never stops moving…or catching fish.

The YUMphibian comes in three sizes (4 ½-, 5 ¼- and 6-inches) and 10 color patterns. It can be Texas rigged with or without a weight, Carolina rigged or even on a drop shot. It catches fish flipped, pitched or worked deep. It’s also a creature bait as versatile as the angler throwing it. Any of the appendages can be pinched off if the fish want a more subtle action to match any condition. Plus, with YUM F2 Attractant infused into the bait during the molding process, it constantly and consistently releases a strong scent trail.

The new YUM F2 YUMphibian has an MSRP of just $4.99. For more information go to
