Recommended Posts

Anyone know a god jig trailor for football jigs? I have been using believe it or not Tubes (Coffee Strike king's) and GYCB Flapinhogs which seem bulky ... anyone recomend somthing that matches the blue / black jig and a brownish jig?

NetBaits Baby Paca Craw comes in a variety of colors, some which

will fit whatever you are trying to match. If you're looking for a smaller

profile, check out the GYCB Fat Baby Craw.

Yum has some black trailers with blue flake that match the blue/black jigs I use quite well.

You could also try this site where I buy my jigs: http://www.custombassfishinglures.com. Click on Bassnacks in the left column. I've heard good things about these trailers but I haven't tried them yet, though I should have an order coming in soon. The guys who make these jigs and trailers are members of this site.

I have read that trailors slow a jig down but to me it seems to speed it up with the added weight.

Will proably try out some YUM or GYCB's gona do some shopping arround on lunch today see what i can come up with

A larger trailer slows down the sink rate of the jig:

1.- Larger surface = more water resistance.

2.- More weight = more lift ( Archimedes principle )

I had great success using the skirtless Booyah Football Head Jigs with a Brush Hog working around docks last year. Used 1/4 oz head. Tore free the legs and split the tail. It slowed the fall with a flapping action. Also worked well on steep banks.

I use Hula grubs for trailors on my football heads.  The twin tail gives it action and the "skirt" on top of the grub adds a little more color to the skirt on the jig.  

I use the Smallie Beaver as a trailor too.

Depending upon what the fish want, I use Paca chunks, rage tail craws, and just regular chunk trailers.  

When I really want to upsize I'll use something like a Gambler Otter.

What about chigger craws, I heard those are great plus they sink really slow.

When I'm fishing footballs, the majority of the time I'm using a brush hog, baby brush hog, or sweet beaver type plastic for a trailer.

This is where i buy almost all my trailers! These trailers have great action, LOADED with salt, and the bass really seem to hold on with these!

Hes got the 4 main colors you will need for jigs. An free shipping with a 20 dollar buy.

Ive also like used paca craws. Great action on them.

I'm gonna give ya one out of my private stock.......lol.  This catches fish fresh or salt.  Know what a snookball is?  I make up my own version.  1/4 or 1/2 oz bullet jig, tailed with white zoom worm.

Sorry Brent I did not explain that well. Obviously the softness of the trailer doesn't make a whole lot of difference in the feel because the jig is hard; however, it allows the trailer to retain scent and taste much longer. It is imbued with it all. For a small non-manufactured product it's not terribly expensive. To me it's worth the extra bit of money to have the fish hold on for an extra second or two.

These are the jig trailers that I use.  

I haven't found anything comparable. The bass hold on significantly longer because of the unique softness and smell of the bait.

I normally would NEVER do this, but those are 50 cents each!

That's insane for a jig trailer. (double the price they should be) Maybe i'm too cheap, but I usually use 'the rest' of a used beaver for a trailer.

b

(and i hope we aren't getting into the 'fish hold on longer because its softer' because that is easily proven to be false)

1. A Crawdad is a bass's favorite meal and they are hard as a rock and never get 'let go'.

2. The bass just ate a 5/0 hook with a lead head and you think the softness of the trailer is playing a huge role in whether the fish wants to keep it or not? A trailor changes the profile, but helps zero after the strike.

x2 Brent  I have caught alot of bass with a rock-hard craw in her throat. I guess she did not let go quick enough. ;):)

Berkley and Gambler are two big manufacturers that "imbue" scent into their baits.  The softness of the plastic isn't going to have anything to do with it's ability to "retain scent".

Handpours are softer and provide more action.  If anything this will allow the trailer to have a bit more action than a "conventional" soft plastic trailer of the same shape and size.  I don't see how it will effect the scent at all.
