Favorite Jig Trailer

Recommended Posts

I was just wondering what trailers you liked to use when fishing a jig?

Do you prefer one scented or with salts?

Do you like to have them a similar color as the skirt or do you like to have a contrasting and different color?

Do you use a different trailer with a swimmin' jig then a bottom jig?

Thanks!!!

I never use swimmin jigs, only flippin jigs. I ALWAYS use a Berkley PowerBait 4" Chigger Craw. Since the jig bite can be hard to detect(winter, heavy vegetation) i like the strong PowerBait scent because they won't let it go. Therefore, giving me more time to detect the strike and set the hook!

my jig trailer depends on how I am fishing

Swimming jig = paca chunk or frog chunk

flipping slowly = pork chunk

pitching fast or shaking the jig as if falls = craw worm

I love to have a trailer that matches my jig. My favorite jig, Davis Jigs, makes its colors to match netbait paca chunks so it helps my confidence.

umm...scent is not that important to me. I fish fairly fast most of the time and when i do slow myself down I am fishing with a pork chunk which has its own scent and taste.  ;D

Ragetail craw...dipped in JJ's..I do cut some of the craw off so it doesn't overwhelm the jig..

I like my trailers to match my jigs, but have been trying using contrasting colors lately.  I really like Net Baits Paca Chunks and Yum Chunks.  I also use Mega Strike fish attractant.  Have been trying some of the Chompers twin tail grubs as well as the Yamamoto Flappin Hawgs 2.

For swimming jigs I use Kinami single tail grubs in either 3 or 4 inch.

Later, ;)

Davis and Netbait go hand in hand. Can't have a jig without a beast trailer.The netbait paca chunk is salted, scented with anise oils and also has pork in the plastic.  Great action and colors, you could also use the paca chunk, baby paca , or even the tiny paca which is great for the smaller bitsy bug type jigs which is what I use mostly (since i fish on the finese side) either way you can go wrong with the Netbait line of paca craws/chunks.

    For my football jigs I will either go with a Rage Tail Chunk for hopping the jig off the bottom or a Zoom Super Chunk for dragging the jig along the bottom.  For my swimming jigs I perfer something that has a lot of action on it so I just use Rage Tail Chunks.  On my flipping and pitching jigs I will usually stay with Zoom Super Chunk.  

    As for scent, I have been wanting to use some JJ's Magic but I haven't got around to ordering any yet.  In the mean time I am using Mega Strike.  Also, I will had some Spike-It! dip-n-dye to the claws of my trailers to give them a different look.  I personally believe that scent or taste whether it be something like Mega Strike, Smelly Jelly, or just regular salt helps get the lookers into eaters.

    I have heard about contrasting colors of your jig skirt to your trailer but I have never done it.  Maybe I will sometime soon and see how it works.

Rage Craw- I swear by these! Right now with black and blue and dipping the tips in chartreuse JJ's. This adds smell and matched the hatch. We have a thousand sunfish running around with glowing chartreuse tails.

Yamamoto Flappin' Hawg when I want less action and more of a crawdad look.

Paca Chunk when I'm out of Rage Craws!

Big Bite Baits Kreit tail Kreature. I can't explain it you have to look for yourself. And Uncle Josh jumbo pork frog.Also ribbit frog half of the body,shave the cut end down a bit and those legs are killer for jig trailers. And spinnerbaits too.

I use Rage Chunks, Craws, and Space Monkeys with JJ's or Megastrike depending on what the fish want that day. (I try both to see whats hot!)

I only use NetBait Paca Chunks and they are laying in ziplock bags and sprayed with BANG! Pure Craw scent.  I will usually match the trailer to the jig but from time to time I will mix it up and have a different color trailer on the jig.  In the winter I use Uncle Josh's Pork trialers.

WackyDave, Where'd you come from? You need to call from time to time. I'm about to head back home to gear up for the tournament this weekend...and force jeremy to give me some of his x-wire spinnerbaits. I'm all out  :'( .

Let me know how the Jr. Bassmasters goes. Don't let the kids whip you too bad  ;) Go Trojans!
