Worms For Jig Trailers

Recommended Posts

A while back I saw a post about someone using the anaconda as a jig trailer. And I'm not sure why but I started thinking about it today.

Do a lot of people use plastic worms as jig trailers instead of the usual crawfish looking trailers? I'm curious to throw some old ribbon tails I have in my tackle box to use as trailers.

If you do use them, how do you fish them?

I do it frequently for a swim jig. I don't see why it wouldn't work fished as a traditional jig either. Might be something I have to play with a bit.

Zoom U-Vibe speed worms make great jig trailers!

My little brother just caught his first jig fish using a blue/black jig with a random curly tail worm as a trailer.

I'll reach for a Producto Tournament Worm (or part of one) most of the time if I want to go Jig & Worm. It's not a ribbon tail though. It's a paddle worm but with a smallish paddle. It whips back and forth when you swim it and stands up when you kill it.

If I do want a ribbon tail trailer I'll go with a Power Worm or a Culprit.

Never trailed with an Anaconda. I'll give it a shot.

Thanks for the input, I'm definitely gunna give it a try the next time I head out. We'll see how it goes.

or a wacky rig senko

Never, ever put a 1/2 senko on a ball head and try to catch fish with it. :huh:

I fish ribbon tail worms on a 3/4 football jig in deep water in the summer. I just trim the body off a bit. It is a killer!

I also have used them with swim jigs, but also with the paddle tail. As far as a skirted jig not swimming, never tried but should. I do fish 10-12" ribbon tails on a naked stand up jig head in the summer/late spring on deep rocky points and channel swings. I only did that though because I was thinking not enough of my craw was out of the softball sized stones at the bottom unless i moved it.

I use a part of a 4" straight tail finesse worm as a trailer on small 1/8 and 3/16 finesse jigs. Works like a charm.

Another vote for swim jig trailer although a curly tail grub or a lake fork magic shad has been getting the call lately for me.

I save worms that get torn up fishing on a T-rig and use the back half of them for jig trailers.

I've never used them on a jig, but I've been known to use the cheapo Walmart or BPS hook-tail worms as spinnerbait trailers.
