Jig / Craw Id

Recommended Posts

Recently picked these up at a yard sale. They dont have a traditional weed guard...its a piece of heavy mono.

The craw trailer has some skirt strands threaded through the nose of the craw trailer, im guessing tobgive the impression of antennae.

These seem to be vintage...anyone know anything about these?

They look home made to me.  Every 4 or 5 years, one of the fishing magazines, Bassin, or Bassmaster or Outdoor LIfe or Field & Stream or who knows, one of the other ones I forget, in their "tips" section will tell you to string skirt strands or rubber bands through your soft plastic baits to give them "more action" or a "different look"  I first remember being told to do that in the mid 80's by a regional Berkley rep and later I read in in Bassmaster.  I never tried it so I don't know if it is a good idea or not.  All I know is that editors have to fill so many column inches each month and if you can't find something new, then recycle something old.

 

Enough of the rant, back to your question.  Yeah, those look home made to me.   How heavy are they?

Off topic, but I used to do a lot of consulting at Huachuca, I wish I knew there was fishing to be done near there. Spent a lot of weekends in the hotel.

Well thats the issue dont really know how the trailer comes off...the piece of mono goes from the jighead over the hook and into the trailer. From there im not sure how the mono is attached.id likely have to destroy the trailer if I took it off. Until I know ecactly who makes these and whether or not they are still available...im not sure I wanna take it apart...

Off topic is an understatment. What in the H-E-DOUBLE HOCKEY STICKS does this have to do with fishing tackle or jigs and trailers, or am I missing something here? :Idontknow:
