Swim Jig Trailer
Posted May 11 2012 - 09:42 AM
Anyway ... I am starting to mess with swimming a jig more and more , and doing fairly well with it. I was just wondering what you guys are throwing on the back of these dudes ? I know a single tail grub works best (or seems to) , but just wondering if there's a certain size , or brand yall like better than the other. I fish mostly 1/4 , 3/8 , and occasionally a 1/2 oz ... And Dirty Jigs makes my favorite ! Also anything you guys add besides a single tail grub ... Just looking for some different answers here , change it up a bit.
Thanks Fellas ,

I strictly throw NorthStar Custom Baits Swim Jigs. They not have are the best as far as durability, but the skirt colors and paint jobs are amazing, and Chris backs up his products with great customer service.
As far as sizes go, I like to throw 1/4 oz in the spring to give the bait a gliding action when I kill the bait. In the summer, depending on the depth I throw throw anywhere from 1/4 in really shallow water (1-3 ft) to 1 oz in deeper water (20+).

I picked up a few packs of the Zoom Fat Alberts today , along with a few more Jigs. The Fat Alberts seemed to fit that particular jig (Dirty Jigs) just right. Try 'em out on Monday : ) .
I got to say I'm a bit confused by the craw and twin tail responses ... Don't get me wrong , I love craw trailers for flippin' / pitchin'. But , I figured they would hurt the action of the skirt on a SWIM jig. I tried a Zoom swimmin' chunk (twin tail chunk) when I first started messing with a swim jig ... I didn't like it , the jig didn't have the same action as it did without a trailer (or with a single tail grub , as I have read , but have not yet tried). Any way , maybe that will be something for you guys to try as well. Thanks for the responses !
