Rigged Grubs For Smallies

Recommended Posts

RW I have the double tail grubs from ***, Green and Smoke. You said 1/8oz jig head rite. Do I jig it stop then jig again? Or just let it fall bring it hight then let it fall?

How about fishing a Wacky Rig *** in moving water?

How do I fish and rig the beaver craws from ***?

What is the difference in a single and double tail grubs compared to spider grubs? How are these rigged as well?

I view grubs fished by themselves on a jig head as shad/ minnow immitations. That's why I prefer single tails. I don't jig them, I fish grubs with a steady retrieve at different depths until I find the right one!

I only use double tail grubs as jig trailers. This is a relatively small and compact profile, which is sometimes the ticket. I consider the double tail a representation for a crawdad, not a baitfish.

Now, since you already have double tails, fish them with the steady retrieve and see what happens. I suspect it makes no difference whether the tail is single or double! Sometimes we "overthink" all these "rules" when discussing presentations.

Thanks RW if the double dosn't work could I trim one tail off or back a little?

No.

Just fish the double tail as it is and you will be fine. I said I "prefer" a single tail, but that doesn't mean the double won't work. I am sure you will do well.

In my experience I have caught fish by retrieving in 3 or 4 different ways.

1.) steady retrieve. Not letting the grub/jig touch the bottom, but not too fast to out pace fish that are holding to structure.  Gotta find that nice happy medium.

2.) very slow retrieve. Letting the jig fall to the bottom and reeling it in slowly, pausing to let it fall every few seconds.  I like to give jigs little tugs to trigger reaction strikes, and to hop over things that may snag your jig. The key here is not to over do it.  Too hard a tug and you'll freak the fish out. Just give your pole a steady tug for a second, covering only a few inches. Easy does it!

3.) middle of the road approach.  I catch most of my fish using this medium pace, almost bouncing retrieve.  Reel in slow to medium and steadily, with little tugs every 2 or 3 cranks.  Ideally your jig will rise and fall over and over. Not too fast, not too slow. Works for me and I bet it'll work for you  ;)
