Trailer: Zoom Ultra Vibe Chunk, Bruiser Baits Evil Twin Trailer, Gambler Twin Tail, Reaction Innovations Twerk

Swimbait: Keitech Swimg Impact Fat, Reaction Innovations Skinny/Little Dipper, Kicker Fish Bait Co. Tail Slapper (doing my reasearch on these)

Craws: V&M Wild Thang Craw, Strike King Rage Craw

Frogs: Reaction Innovations Trixie Shark

 

That pretty much covers it for me. Just all depends on location and how I'm fishing my bladed jigs, which in turn depends on what the bass want. Typically speaking, I fish the "typical" trailers and craw trailers when I'm bottom hopping or working it along the bottom with a stop-and-go, and fish the frog and swimbati trailers in open water, through grass, around rock and wood ... really when I'm trying to cover water. You can really mix it up and get creative at times. I just keep experimenting with new things unless it already works.

 

Hope that helps.

Favorites are:

 

1) JP Hammer Shad from Powerteam Lures or their Grubs.

2) Skinny Dipper from Reaction Innovations. (cut a little off the head)

3) 3.5" Craw D'oeuvre from Power team Lures

 

I have had great results with the JP Hammer Shad. It's my goto trailer on everything Spinnerbaits, Swim Jigs, and chatter baits. Heck if it wouldnt mess with the action on a crankbait I would probably try it there too. Those things are Awesome.

I've had a lot of success using the yum boogee tail as a trailer. I like the subtle waving action of the arms and they are on sale at my local Wal-Mart.

I like using a boot tail swim bait on a swim jig but on a chatterbait I find a super fluke Jr. is much better.

I also use a lake fork magic shad.  They have good action and a good variety of colors.

Already have.  And it does look great, the way the tube tentacles flap and wiggle.  It ought to catch fish well.  With or without the skirt.

For the most part yes, but rig one up naked with a Rage Tail Cut-R and give that a shot.

Be careful...You might get your arm broke!

Do you guys leave the skirt on?

I typically leave the skirt on, so as to maximize the amount of visible movement caused by the vibration.  I like that sucker to shake all over.   But thats just my personal preference.  Fish can be caught just fine without the skirt as well.
