Twin Tailed Grubs

Twin tail grubs work well for largemouth bass.  You can use these baits on their own or as a trailer on the back of a bass jig, spinner bait or bladed swim jig.  Whether you hop them along slowly or swim them in with a steady retrieve, they catch bass.

Skirted twin tail grubs, also known as spider jigs, are very popular baits for targeting largemouth bass.  Rig these on a jig, shaky head jig, Texas rig, Florida rig, swimbait hook or a weightless rig and target largemouth bass shallow or deep and you’ll catch some fish.

Popular Techniques

Hop Them Along

Most anglers will just put these baits on a jighead and hop them along the bottom.  You can work them through the water column as well to get plenty of bites.

Slowly Free Fall Them

Try using no weight or a small split shot rig or light finesse jig to slowly let these baits fall through the water column.  This technique is similar to how you would fish a wacky worm and it can be super effective.

Bass Jig

A bass jig is a great way to rig twin tail grubs.  Use the twin tail grubs as a trailer on most bass jigs and you’ll do well.  If you remove the skirt on a bass jig, you can add the skirted twin tail grubs (spider jig) onto the bass jig.  This is an awesome way to present a twin tail grub.

Standup Jighead

A shaky head jig is a great way to present a twin tail grub.  Whether you are swimming it or just hopping it along the bottom, the action is very good.  Some grubs will be too small though to be rigged onto a shaky head jig.

Split Shot Rig

This rig works well for both twin tail grubs and skirted twin tail grubs, however, this rig is definitely better with the skirted twin tail grubs.  The slowly falling bait draws a lot of strikes from largemouth bass.

Weightless Rig

The weightless rig works well for twin tail grubs and skirted twin tail grubs, however, the action is a lot better with the skirted twin tail grubs.  Fish them slowly like you would a wacky worm and you’ll get lots of bites.
