Trying Jig Trailer Idea.

Recommended Posts

I found one of my old Dancin craw crankbaits. The ones if you can remember had that single treble hook on them. I took the red one snipped it in two and threaded it on a black and red flipping jig. My question for everyone is with the incredible realism of hard swimbaits, why doesn't anyone make realistic jig trailers? Because if a swimbait is swimming wouldn't something that is worked at times at a slow drag where the bass are really getting a good look at the bait realism would be a good thing? Also it would be nice for a trailer to be made of this same material it seems indestructible.

A jig is more of an impressionist bait, it doesn't look exactly like anything but with different trailers and different retrieves you can get it to look similar to alot of prey. If you want something that looks exactly like a craw check out the huddlebugs they are pretty much spot on, you can also use craw worms from various makes that have a more realistic craw look to them.

Alot of people get to caught up in the whole it has to look like this or that, their is a ton of baits that look like nothing in the water but get bit on a consistent basis around the country so you know they work, and a jig can be thrown in this category.

My most productive jig trailer is the ragetail lobster. It doesn't look exactly like a crawfish and i've never seen a crawfish that flapped its claws up and down, but it works. Looking realistic doesn't seem to be as important as simply looking alive.

Ok, just because I'm thinking crawfish. Doesn't mean the bass sees it the same way. The bass just identifies an easy slow moving snack. Thanks for your input guys.
