spider jig

Recommended Posts

i picked up a weedless (wireguarded) spider jig and i was wondering how do you retrieve them? like any other crayfish imitation?

Yep. Let the fish tell you what they want. Very good choiceIMHO. :D

Well, I think there are two ways to fish the bait:

For smallmouth I fish a GYCB Single Tail Hula Grub with a slow, steady retrieve and an occasional hop. I think this bait immitates a baitfish.

For largemouth I fish the GYCB Double Tail Hula Grub which is more like a jig. I crawl this over rocks and let it sit for extended periods. This profile bares more resembalance to a crawdad.

ive used crayfish as feeders for my fish. when my dempsey looks at it, the crayfish knows to scoot backward with the occassional jump and then the dempsey clobers him. its cool having preditory fish when you know you fish for predators (bass) so you can study similar behavior

so i would reel in and jig right?

RW makes a good point, a single tail grub is more of a baitfish immitator. While I have fished single tailed grubs a lot, I have never fished a single tail skirted grub. When I say a "spider Jig" I was thinking of jig with a skirted double tail grub. That I would crawl, hop, pop, rip, stitch, ect. depending on what works best. The weight of the jig also makes a big difference if they are taking it on the fall. Good luck.
