grubs

Recommended Posts

I fish the GYCB 5" Single Tail Grub on a 1/8 oz Gamakatsu jig head. Only two colors for me: Blue Pearl with Silver Flakes or Smoke.

pretty much the same as roadwarrior except I use smoke, chartreuse, coke and white colors.

my two biggest retrieves are snap, snap, fall, sweep, fall, repeat - or swimming the grub with an occasional snap and fall. I vary the retrieves a few times if I'm not getting anything. often while I'm swimming the grub they're wanting a little something extra so I'll raise and lower my rod tip 6 inches while swimming it. nothing too fancy.

Most (all?) of my soft plastics are dark, but I use these particular colors for grubs because they closely resemble baitfish. I like single tail grubs for the same reason. On a jig, I use the double tail as a trailer = crawdad immitation.

I guess it depends were you fish or what you have the most confidence in. My dad and I have had many 100 + smallie days at Erie with 3" white twist tail grubs with 1/8 oz. jig heads.

good point, xhogger. try and match the forage in your area. it's usually hard to go wrong with a white grub, though. almost every fisherman across the world I've ever talked to has had good luck with that.

like rw says you're trying to imitate baitfish, so retrieve accordlingly - experimenting if they're sluggish. a grub might be more of a boring lure, but it's effective!

I can't imagine how many smallmouth bass I've caught on 3" Twister type grubs on a plain 1/8 oz. jig head. It's a LOT. And I believe a 4" or 5" would be even better. If it looks like a grub, but is bigger, the smallies are going to jump all over it! If I had only one lure to use, it would be a 3" white curly tailed grub on a 1/8 oz. jig head. No one could catch more with anything else.

I used to get Gene Larew salty grubs in I think 4". My favorites were smoke with blue or red flakes depending on which was best that day. They don't make them anymore, I bought a bunch of their last ones in smoke silver but they didn't have the colors anymore!  :(

I use Kalins grubs exclusively. They are considerably softer than most of the grubs on the market, and more importantly their tail is extremely thin. This makes for better action, especially when retrieved slowly. I use the 5 inch in the warmer months and the 3 inch and sometimes even 1.5 inch in the cooler months.

The great thing about grubs is, they basically just imitate an injured minnow usually. This means that they will not only catch smallies, largemouth, and spots, but they will also catch a lot of other game fish if they are swimming nearby.

Like Kalins, Mister Twister and even grubs from Janns Netcraft, usually using a 1/8, 1/4 or heavier head depending on weight ball head jig or a pony head for some added flash.

I like smoke, white, charteuse pepper and even fire tiger in the grubs.
