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.
How to Fish Twin Tail Grubs for Largemouth Bass
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.
Best Rigs for Twin Tailed Grubs
A simple jighead is probably the best way to rig a variety of different twin tail grubs on the market.
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.
Shaky Head Jig
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.
A finesse jig is a great way to fish a skirted twin tail grub. The action is great as the bait slowly falls towards the bottom.
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.
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.
