Trailers are used mostly on the back of a bass jig, however, some anglers report success by fishing these baits as a finesse bait on a smaller jighead or drop shot rig. If you’re looking to target quality bass, fish these trailers on the back of a bass jig. You can fish with plastic or pork. There are many manufacturers out there that make a variety of styles, sizes and colors of plastic and pork trailers so you have a lot of options when looking for the perfect trailer for your bass jig.
Soft plastic crayfish (or crawfish) work very well for largemouth bass. Many anglers fish these baits as trailers on a bass jig, but you can also fish them with a variety of other rigs such as a Texas rig, Florida rig, Drop shot rig, a swimbait hook and many others. This is a great bait for flippin’ and pitchin’ around shallow water cover or along rocky bottoms. Largemouth bass love crayfish so you can’t really go wrong by choosing to use a soft plastic crayfish.
Tubes are extremely popular for bass fishing. Most bass anglers think of tubes as a great smallmouth bass bait, but these baits are also great baits for largemouth bass. You can use tubes by themselves or as a trailer on a bass jig.
