There is nothing like grub fishing with ultra light tackle. I use 3 inch grubs (no preference on brands, I have all kinds). The colors I use are green pumpkin, black, blue or silver/grey.

As far as rigging goes - I'll use ball head jigs, usually as small as I can find, but you have to use bigger ones if you're throwing into some heavy current. Start with a 3/16 oz for light current, if it gets heavy and deep, go with 3/8 or 1/2 oz.

You can even texas rig them with a slip weight or run them weightless. This is a good technique when the bite is tough. If that isn't working, nose hook it!

With all of these rigging techniques, all you have to do it let it sit, give it a little pop or drag every so often... Fish it slower than you would a tube, the tail will do all the work.

Using a ball head jig and a grub is also a killer walleye technique.

I use bass pro shops spring grub. They are just 3" long, they dont make the 4" anymore. I use smoke and smoke purple. I also use bass pro shops unpainted 1/4 oz round jig heads. I throw it on a 7' M sinning rod with 30lbs braid with a 8 lbs mono or fl-carbon leader. I try to keep the boat in about 50 ft. of water and try to hit the bank with my casts. I let it sink and just slow roll it along the bottom. I usually target main lake points and secondary points, fishing both sides and the tip of the point. I use the smoke in clear water in any sky condition but if the skies turn real cloudy and rainy I like to through the smoke purple.

If your lake has a rocky bottom you will probably have better luck with football heads since they are a bit better in not getting hung up in the rocks.

All of the grubs work well I especially like Yamamoto's Hula Grubs.

River fishing & grubs just flat go together! I like a Kalin's 3" & 5" grub (in smoke w/black flake) on a plain ball head 1/8 oz. jig. Yep, you're gonna loose a lot of 'em. If you don't, you're not fishing it where the bass are. Which is why I pour my own.

Have caught a lot of quality smallies this way. Even a plain smoke grub is dy-no-mite. I've caught smallies on small grubs in just about any color combo you can imagine. It's depth & speed control that'll hook you up, not so much the color. But I do like smoke colored grubs! ;)

Does anyone use grubs or worms exposed hook?  Or T rig.  I only ask this because today at work that was on of the many topics we where talking about.

Because many "bites" with tubes & grubs can be very difficult to recognize, an exposed hook (where cover and structure will allow) will increase catch rates.  Deeply hooked bass are not uncommon and barbless hooks will GREATLY reduce damage when releasing them.

absolutely.

I use a long shank bronze hook exposed on weightless worms about 100% of my worm fishing.

I normally use a ball head jig with a grub, but I'm considereing using the long shank with a weightless grub too and if I need weight perhaps a split shot. I'm anxious to try this technique this season.

I fish mainly in the lower shenandoah river while wet wading

It is both: The upper Potomac, basically above the Woodrow Wilson Bridge is more rocky with a few grass beds.  Below WWB, the lower Potty is alot of grass and mud with some rocks.  More smallies in the upper, more largies in the lower.  From WWB up to the fall  line(ish), it's a good mix.
