Best trailer for swim jigs?

Recommended Posts

If I want it up in the water or just a bigger profile I'd keep it in the family with the rage tail swimmer. For a slimmer profile like a swim n shad for deeper water so it stays down better. I like appendage/grubs sometimes too like the twin tail menace or grub.

I like grubs and Keithech fats.  It all kinda depends on how active and deep the fish are, how big the baitfish and bluegill are, and what kind of water clarity you're working with.  I'm a pretty big match the hatch guy 80% of the time.

Hate to let the cat out the bag....a strike king cut r worm cut down to about 3-4" is killer on a swim jig. No matter how slow or fast you reel it has awesome action. I use watermelon red and dye the tip with chartruse JJ's magic. Menace grub is my 2nd choice.

For a wide kick:
Impact fat or one of the copies

For a subtle kick:
Doyle Custom Baits Zipper

In the spring:
Zoom double tail fat albert Grub

 

The is the Doyle's Zipper in his bluegill pattern. These are hand painted and very high quality. They're also very reasonably priced. I've been using these a ton this year.

Would go with a 5" kalins single tail grub and color would be bluegill or water purple. I have tossed a sungill jig that had a little chartreuse in it with a Rons craw kalin which may work with that too.

I usually go with a 3" or 4" boot tail swimbait. Although most of my bladed swim jigs have creature baits on them.

Those look awesome. Good action, I assume based on fact that you're recommending them?

Great action and durability. The tail isn't as widely booted and the body is thicker where it connects to the tail, so it has a more subtle/natural kick to it as it swims (compared to the Impact Fat). I think this also helps with durability because there is some more material there and it helps whenever you get short strikes and those bluegill/crappie bites that suck the tail right now. I know whenever I fish the 2.8 and 3.3 Keitechs on a fishhead spin, the tails get sucked off by the bluegill/crappie/perch faster than you even know it.

The 5" baits are big, beefy baits. They're for fishing like a large swimbait with a large jig head type hook (kinda like a Hudd). They're not meant for a chatterbait trailer or anything like that.
