grubs for smallies

Recommended Posts

has anyone ever tried using grub rigged just on a straight shank hook with a about an 18in leader between that and a couple of split shots. i seem to have very good success with this and always catch multispecies with it, thanks for the input

Nope.

I always fish grubs on a jig head.

Thats my dock fishing setup on a couple lakes. The docks on both of these lakes are pounded. The one is really off colored I take a white grub and die it Chartruse and sometimes with split shot and sometimes without. The other has both largies and smallies on the docks I use a clear smoke in pretty clear water and the split shot.

I don't really care what anybody else is using I no that this setup works on these lakes. At the wieghtins I talk about spinnerbaits and rats.

You just need a smaller swival. Lookup Redwing Tackle they are steelhead specailest they have super small 30lb swivals.

I use these for my dropshoting.

I throw grubs similiar to that but on a carolina rig.  Grubs work great for smallies,  I use them on c rigs, t rigs, jig heads and shakey heads.  They just work anyway you want.

Considering the variety of baits that fall under the label of "grub", I'm wondering what "grub" most of us are referring to with that moniker... sickle tail, boot tail, straight tail... heck, even a 3" Senko is more of a grub than worm?  My "favorite" smallie bait is a 3" long hand-tied hare jig that I fish "just like a grub".

Besides the afore mentioned hare jigs that I swim, my grub box contains 4" sickle tailed grubs, a "skinny" 3" walleye sickle tailed grub, Brewer's 3" boot tailed grubs and a Gene Larew 3 1/2" Long John boot tailed grub.

Brand and size, but you might prefer 4", that is the most popular size.

I like 1/4 oz, colored jig jeads. Red, white, chartreuse and black.

I use Zoom Fat alberts in Green pumpkin, Green pumpkin/red flake, Watermelon and Watermelon/red flake.

GYBC spidergrubs in assorted colors. I believe its considered a grub.

Spidergrubs rigged on a 3/8 oz football jig. These things are deadly worked slow on the bottom.

GYCB calls them Hula Grubs. I think they are significantly different than a standard grub, or at least I fish them differently. I sometimes hop a grub, but I try to fish it so that the tail is always in motion. By contrast, the Hula Grub can be fished like a tube or a jig. Whereas the grub seems to resemble a shad or minnow, the Hula Grub has more of the characteristics of a crawdad (tentacles on the front).

I like the GYCB grubs too.  I also have been fishing these more over the last couple of years.http://westcoastcustomtackle.com/admin/product_info.php?products_id=57&osCsid=764f10b7c5fb7d66159b420e7b749436

Mann's stingray grub is very similar and is a great grub too.  A couple of fishing buddies of mine have fished this style of grub almost exclusively for a few years and finally talked me into making them.  We usually fish them on a 1/4 oz. head in 12-40'of water.
