Rigging the Yum Crawbug

7 posts in this topic

Hello All:

I understand that many rig the Crawbug on a jig.  But my question is what about a Texas Rig.  If I hook it so the curve is under the lure, with the point entering on its underside, I am afraid the hook will interfere with the lure's presentation as it drags across the bottom.  On the other hand, if the hook's curve goes over the top, will that affect the hooking of the lure.

As plastic worms don't have a "top" and "bottom," this isn't an issue for that type of soft bait.

(I apologize is this is a stupid question.)

Tubefishing,

There are no dumb questions in fishing, you are a novice and the only way to learn is to ask. You want to texas rig a crawfish with a widegap hook so the shank of the hook is under the crawfish. That way the eyes and all the lifelike features of the crawfish are up and the presentation looks natural. if you rig the hook so the shank is on the top then the lure will be upside down.

There's a video on YouTube of Alton Jones rigging a Yum CrawBug, but this site won't allow me to post the link. ::)

I'm sure it'll come up if you search YouTube for Alton Jones.
