Single tail or double tail Curly Grubs

Recommended Posts

When fishing curly tail grubs, do you prefer single or double tail ones. Thank you.

Depends on the lure. Larger ones - 1/2oz or bigger spinner/chatter/buzzbaits...I'll go with a twin-tail. Smaller ones of those three I'll use single-tail. Swim-jigs is either single-tail or paddle-tail.

MN Fisher,

Thank you for your reply. The reason I ask this question, is because I have never fished a double tail curly grub.

I fish the single as a swim jig trailer or a bare jighead, the double as a jig trailer when pitching or fishing the bottom. Two different baits for me. The single is a more subtle smaller profile, the double presents a larger, wider, louder one. 

Also, single grubs vary in their action. I fish a few different ones, and most will do the job, but I usually turn to the fat albert in both, or the old reliable Mr Twister double.

The closest I fish to a double curly tail grub is the Rage Tail Menace, not quite a curly tail, but close...

As  trailers or stand alone on a jig head ?

I normally just use a single tail. But in the spring time a double tail on a chatterbait or spinnerbait can be deadly around here.

I use a Zoom Fat Albert single tail grub if I am fishing it as a Texas rig. I use the twin tail Fat Albert for a jig trailer.

Thank you everyone for your replies. I have been using all shaky head rigs. Mostly 1/8 oz. Strike King.

This for myself except for swim I use single tail or paddle tails. I also like single tails on horse heads with an underspin

Single tail will usually have a larger thicker tail this moving more water and creating a larger disturbance and more water displacement. Better for muddy or dirty water. For clear water and fishing on bottom with a jig twin tail as trying to represent either craws or baitfish so the twin tails can be pinchers or rigged sideways can be the tail.
