Grub Rigging

Recommended Posts

How should a curly tail grub be rigged in relationship between hook point and tail?

IMHO, My preference is down, but I really haven't seen any difference as to how you orient the tail. Up, down or sideways hasn't really matter to the bass I've caught.

First... one way. When the bait gets a little chewed up, the other way.

I found I got bit more rigging it tail down than up. Light wire hooks are a must,since using light wire hooks my hook ups has increased. By a lot.

Does it matter? Probably not on most days.

I go tail down but agree that I just switch it the other way once it's tore up and still catch fish. Tail down is "officially" the fat part of the tail being down, which is actually the tip of the tail pointing up.

It don´t matter how you rig it, I start by rigging it tail down and as the bait gets chewed I start rigging rotating the hook on whatever plastic it´s got left.

I've found more luck fishing it tail down, and it's caught me many more fish since I started throwing it tail down.

I've always rigged mine where the end of the tail is the opposite direction o the bend of the hook. I have switched and rigged it what I call " tail up" but usually just switch when they get chewed up. I repair them later with a hot punch heated with a cigarette lighter.

This is the way I rig a grub on a lead jighead or for unweighted open hook fishing like this one is........................

If texas rigging then I go with the bend of the hook the same direction as the bend of the grub tail.
