Yes. The smaller floating fire tiger rapalas and Senko worms are probably my most productive bass lures. There are a bunch of different brands with that style worm.
You typically need to fish the wacky worm very slow. I'll cast it out and let it sink to the bottom. Then I'll either reel it slowly for a few seconds and let it sink. Or I'll just slowly pull my rod back a few feet and let it sink. Or a combo of the two. There's just something about the way a wacky is rigged that works. When you twitch it or move it, it shakes and swims in a way that other "in-line" worm riggings can not. I'll usually have plain white wackys and a brown/darker color. You can fish the floating rapala in many ways including the straight retrieve and twitching/walking the dog on top of the surface. If you are fishing slightly deeper water than one of the smaller floating rapalas would be suited for, try an x-rap or something that goes a bit deeper and suspends/sinks. I like how the x rap suspends. I like spinners like rooster tails for bass too. Different soft plastics and crank baits/rat l traps are good too. Even spoons. Those little three or five packs of the little fish with the paddle tails at wal mart that are pre rigged with the internal weight are nice. I don't exactly remember the brand but it might be storm. They're good for all sorts of fish like some of the previously mentioned lures. I like em for ice fishing too. You can just swim them or bottom bounce/jig them back to shore for bass. I would go with the slightly smaller ones that are no bigger than three inches. Don't work them to fast. A lot of people do. One of the key points to remember with any kind of fishing is to try different speeds/retrieves and finessing, though. Vary it up and see what they like. Often the way you fish a lure is more important than getting the perfect lure or color.
