Grumpy Round Goby is an incredibly realistic imitation of a round goby now found across the Great Lakes region.  While round goby are an invasive species and fisheries agencies are trying to control their populations, they have become a primary food source for many sports species including smallmouth bass, largemouth bass, walleye, whitefish, northern pike, lake trout, etc.. The demand for realistic goby baits has been on the rise.  To complete our full range of goby baits sizes, we designed Grumpy Round Goby using state-of-the-art 3D software and using the most supple plastics to ensure a realistic look and feel.

  • Medium goby design is ideal even when fish are in a negative feed state
  • Anatomically correct head size, body shape and caudle fin design - if it looks like a goby and acts like a goby - fish think its a goby!
  • Signature Grumpy face seduces fish into an aggressive, dominant strike
  • Flat-bottom design ensures Grumpy Round Goby remains right-side up
  • Loaded with our signature HAMMER JUICE
  • Loaded with hand-ground, sea salt so fish hang on longer
  • 8 pieces per bag
