Why not both? Just get a natural and dark color in both.

Personally, I use Paca's more often than any other craw, but there are a few times each year when they want a chigger craw more.

A few years ago, before Rage craws even came out, I bought and fished Chigger craws, Yum craw Pappys, and Paca Craws, to see what one I liked best. 6 years later, I only use Paca craws. I was not real impressed with the either of the other two. Thats being said...I have never liked Paca craws as a jig trailer, they are hollow and don't stay on a jig hook real well for me, so you may want to consider that. It's not a big deal for me, as I use a chunk craw type trailer almost all the time, and just fish Paca's t-rigged. I did buy some rage craws this winter, because they have a solid body, to use as a jig trailer when I want some thing that moves some water.

I like the Pacas a lot! I take an EZ tube weight (3/160z.) slide it into the body as far as it will go, then a 4/0 EWG hook is long enough to not get in the way of the tube weight and you have a real killer there. I have tried the 1/4oz Ez weights and they are too long for the baby Pacas.

But, I have caught the below fish on a Rage Craw so..........

Chigger craw for a jig trailer. Never really used either of them T-rigged. Just don't like the hollow Paca Craw on a jig.

I have also used them both and really like the way the paca craws standup better, but quite frankly i have caught more fish using the chuigger craws. i have done really well with a biffle head and 4''in chigger craws.

I will take the Paca's any day! As for jig trailers try the Paca chunks or the new Kickin B by Netbait. Great trailers for jigs and they are a solid body.

If I wasn't using a Rage Craw the next choice would be a Paca. In my experience though, on my lake, a Rage Craw out produces all others I have tried.

Paca Craws are an excellent choice. They throw a lot of action.

I like the Chigger Craws when the fish seem to prefer something a little subtler.
