Different Rigging Methods For A Baby Paca Craw

Recommended Posts

We all know about the standard texas, carolina, and punch rigs and we know about using them as jig trailers but what other rigging methods do you guys use with these? I know I'm late to the rage rig party having only found out about it sometime last year but it sure is a fun way to rig plastics. This is an Owner Zo Wire 4/0 flipping hook with a 1/16th lead crimped onto the shank. I also have a plastic rattle inside the bait for a little something extra. I'm really having a blast trying to figure out all the tricks of the rage rig, so what do you guys do?

eyedabassman, I would never have thought of using them on an Alabama Rig.

 

flippin and pitchin, thanks for the kind words, nothing really special just took it on my phone. Yes it does glide very nicely rigged this way.

You can also rig it backwards as well on a stand up jighead and hop it

A nice finesse presentation is putting them on a Megastrike Shake2 head

One more way I've found to present these baits in a little different way is to first tie on an Owner WGP 4/0 hook then thread on the baby paca craw stopping before you run the point back through the body for final rigging. Insert a tungsten 1/8th oz weight into the bait, put it in only as far as you need to in order to now run the hook point through the body and skin hook the point. Finally squeeze the bait so that the weight moves back toward the hook bend, I always push it back until it touches the shank but you can play with where you want it to get it to fall differently. With the weight right under the barb it may feel like it's going to cause hooking problems but I've not found that to be the case.

 

With it rigged in this manner it produces a completely vertical fall, not the usual tail down presentation. Also the claws don't flap nearly as much as they regularly do but do more of what I would call "waving" for lack of a better word. I've had the most succes with it rigged this way in way downs, tree tops, and any other brush I can find. Something about the way it falls really triggers them to eat around wood. I've not yet tried it under docks and boat houses but I can tell you it will skip really well so you can get it way under there.
