What's your favorite jig trailer ?

Recommended Posts

I just started using jigs a while ago and I've had great success with them. I'm currently using and only have used a zoom super chunk. I'm interested in knowing what everyone uses as their trailers.

My favorite is the one the fish are eating that day. 

I carry a ton of different types for different situations, which one I use depends on the conditions and the fish's mood.

Some of my favorites are; Rage Craw, Christie Craw, twin tail grub, Menace, Big Critter Craw, Uncle Josh pork frog, Senko, Zman BatwingZ or Turbo CrawZ, Bizz Baits Bizz Bug, there really are no limits. Only thing I ever put on a jig that didn't really work that I thought would work was a tube.

I'm nowhere near the jig expert that some others on this board are but I made a conscious effort to not overwhelm myself with the all the options for jig and trailer colors.  My jigs are green pumpkin, brown and black/blue, and I fish them with matching Rage Craws.  About the only change I'll regularly make is downsizing to the smaller Rage Craw when fishing in lakes dominated by spotted bass.

The options are certainly endless, but my tackle bag is already heavy enough :)

I use everything and just dont seem much difference . I caught a nice bass the other night using a purple jelly worm as a trailer . It looks like the jig and eel that the old timers remember .

Pit boss, & Paca craw, are my more go to baits. But everything Bluebasser86 mentioned and anything else I have with me that might work could end up on a hook.

Rage Craw and Rage Chunk in warmer water and Berkley Chigger Craw in colder water. Also, a local tackle chop makes great chunk style jig trailers that I like in colder water as well.

Custom pork rinds, 80% of the time. (black, barn red, purple).

GYCB twin tail grubs, 4" & 5", 10% (221, 387)

Berkley Chigger Craws, 3" & 4", 10% (green pumpkin black flake)

I don't try lots of different jig trailers and tend to stay with what works for me.

I keep it simple as well. I use a rage craw or babe rage craw (depending on size of jig) if the fish are really active (summer mostly) and a baby paca craw whenever they aren't. I like the paca craw more and will throw it 90% of the time even if the fish are really active because of the hollow body. The hollow body allows you to get the trailer perfectly straight without worrying about getting the hook perfectly centered in the body of the plastic the whole time. All you need to do is get it centered for the first 1/4 inch then you can adjust as needed.

R.I. smallie beaver and a Zoom super chunk jr. On a rare occasion I fish a jig with a Danny Joe Humphry's original floating worm.

I'm with you. Zoom super chunks are my go to trailer. I also have some 4in. zoom cross craws. I don't know if they make them anymore but they are good trailers.

Rage Menace for me. Rig it flat for a craw profile or vertical on a swim jig.

I love the Flappin Hog!  I throw that and the Rage Chunk/Craw the most. Super Chunks are great too....
