Wow, I really never seen them before. You can actually make some really nice jig or spinnerbait skirts out of them? Almost like the quick skirts. Although, it's hard to tell how thick the bait is with the pic.

 

Sorry, just a suggestion...:)

I would say it's some kind of trailer. Either for a spinnerbait/buzzbait, or even for just a regular old ball head jig. But I would be wacky rigging them.

These remind me a bit of the Reins Deka Cross Swamp Worms, the worm that looks like an "X" lying on its side. One of the absolute best wacky rigging plastics when bass want a very slow fall rate. Cross Swamp worms look like a butterfly gently flapping its wings.

 

These plastics you have might have similar characteristics.

It's a 70's-80's era Garland Spider skirt used with single and twin tail grubs. Yamamoto sells them today and incorporated a spider skirt on his Hula grubs. You don't want to fish spider on a jig as a skirt for craws, tubes or grubs unless you want to catch lots of bass.

Wacky rigged or, perhaps, as a jig skirt.  They look delicious.

Slide them over the head of a grub (insert grub head on one end and pull skirt down until completely seated) and then rig however, most frequently on some type of jig head. Use a modern Hula grub as a model. Old school B)

Spider jigs are so effective it's my go to jig to teach anglers how to fish jig around rocky structure. Plain painted jig with a Hula Grub or spider skirt with a craw is a very high strike ratio presentation confidence jig.

Thanks WRB. That is what they are. Kinda like these skirts that I pour (dont sell) and melt on to baits.

This. If you ever fished a spider jig, those are a spin-off that gives  the presentation more bulk.

Looks a lot like a tube but the other end is blown off. I would say you could get some great action with it as a wacky rig if you wanted to use it like that. That would look like something the bass haven't seen in awhile. They may crush it.
