Last Friday it was a Crock-O-Gator Ring Craw on a 1/8oz Pro Slider head. Also had one fish flipping grass with a Berkley Changeup with a 1/4oz bullet weight and a 4/0 EWG hook.

For punching matt's...3/4 to 1.5 oz weight, double boober stop, 4/0 or 5/0 Trokar TK 130 hook. 

For heavy to scattered vegetation...3/16 to 1/4 oz weight, sometimes Fla rigged and sometimes T Rigged depending on cover, same hook.

Baby Paca Craw on a 3/0 EWG Gamakatsu with a 1/8-3/8oz bullet weight depending on all kinds of variables that us fishermen juggle in our brains. I also like using Zoom Ultravibe Speed Craws but only when I'm pegging it.

 

I will use 20lb fluoro and superline hooks if I'm flipping/pitching heavy vegetation or heavy cover.

I use a Rage rig ,Owner weighted keel hook.The weight is adjustable so you can control the fall and the way it sets on the bottom.

A jig rig ranging from 1/8 to 3/4 with a 3/0 Gammy Superline EWG. 

Up to 1/2oz in open water the rod is a Phenix UMBX 707ML with a Lews Lite reel, 30lb PP w/15lb fluoro leader. From 1/2oz and up in cover or in really rocky structure it's a UMBX 707MH with the same reel and line. 

There are about 2,000 craw baits in a range of sizes that will all catch the same fish. Pick the one that makes you warm and fuzzy and use it.

1/4 oz weight T-Rigged Chigger Craw or Yum Craw Papi.  Go up/down from there based on conditions.

T-rigged, 3/16 oz tungsten bullet weight, black glass bead, 4/0 Gama EWG hook with a Berkley Powerbait Chigger Craw. I rarely use jigs.

 

Been experimenting lately with this. But so far I'm not getting as many bites as I do with the traditional T-rig.

It depends:

  •  it can be a regular, ordinary, common, everyday Texas rig,
  • or it can be rigged Carolina style,
  • or with a weighted hook
  • or Neko rigged
  • or Shakeyhead rigged

oh dear the possibilities of rigging are almost endless.

Speaking of swinging swim jigs. Making my own with 5/0 Gama Weightless Swimbait hook, #3 Swivel, Skirt, Tungsten Weight, and of course pegged. Will probably throw a rage tail or speed craw too.
