Zoom Ultra Vibe Speed Craw Rigging

Recommended Posts

What's your rig for these? I got 2 bags of them mail ordered because I didn't pay close attention to what I picked. They're the smaller version of the Zoom Speed Craw-I T rig those. I don't find that I have a hook small enough to T rig these little guys. But I know they'll get bites since the larger version does. The smaller ones should draw more bites.

Thanks.

I go a little heavier..I don't get good "flappage" on the fall with lighter weights with this craw. 1/4 to 3/8

one of my favorite baits...and it will catch big fish too...iv'e caught plenty of 3-4lb'ers on that bait.  it is a great river bait.

my favorite color is greenpumpkin magic.

i texas rig it with a 1/0 or 2/0 ewg and usually 3/16oz.   i agree that you need a little more than 1/8oz to get better action..

Thanks. The 2 bags I got by mistake are Okeechobee Craw color. The fish really like black/blue color combos where I fish and thought this will be a good one to try.

I thread those onto smaller jigs, personally. Their compact size helps them slither through weeds well.

I use these a LOT as well. T-rigged on a 1/0 or 2/0 EWG. Bullet weights of either 3/16 or 1/4 oz. You can fish them many ways - drag or hop on the bottom, swim them, yo-yo them, etc. As Catt mentioned, these can be run on top - over and around slop - you can get bit on the surface, OR, if you get to a hole in the slop then let 'em sink....BAM !

And as is well documented, I LOVE topwater fishing! Thanks for the tip.

the guy at tackle direct was screaming at me to use them as a trailer for a chatterbait.

They do make a great trailer for a jig when you wan a small profile. Trim the skirt at the hook bend and thread one on.   Great topwater, especially if you're limited to how much gear you can take with you. Many ways to rig it.
