Twin Tailed Grubs

Fishing Tackle | Soft Baits

Twin tail grubs have a shorter body like other grubs, but they have 2 tails instead of one. This gives the grub extra action which looks good on a variety of rigs fished many different ways.  Hop it along the bottom, vertical jig with it or swim it through the water column and you can catch a variety of fish from small panfish to huge northern pike and pretty much everything in between.

spider jigs

Skirted twin tail grubs, also known as spider jigs, are very popular among bass anglers.  The skirt makes it appear more like a bass jig and the action on these baits can be very good.  Largemouth bass and smallmouth bass love these baits.

Tackle Recommendations

Rod, Reel & Line

Twin Tail Grubs can be fished with light, medium or heavy tackle.  Most anglers target largemouth bass and smallmouth bass with these baits and depending on the fish will usually dictate how heavy or light you go.  With largemouth bass, you’ll most likely be fishing around heavier cover, so they heavy gear may be necessary.  With the smallies, you can get away with 6 pound line and light action rods.  The lighter tackle may be key to getting more bites when fishing clear water.
