Bass Jigs

Bass Jigs work great for smallmouth bass, although, most bass anglers prefer to use these types of jigs for largemouth bass.  Tubes tend to be preferred over the standard bass jigs when it comes to smallmouth bass, however, the smaller jigs work well for smallmouth bass.

Best Trailers for Bass Jigs

Chunk Trailers

Chunk Trailers are one of the best trailers on a bass jig. They are the perfect size and for these smaller trailers, they are usually a little cheaper than the full size crayfish baits.

Crayfish Baits

Crayfish Baits are also awesome on a bass jig.  The smaller crayfish baits in the 3 to 4 inch range tend to work better than the big crayfish baits, but some of those bigger ones work ok for bigger smallmouths.


Tubes are often overlooked as a trailer for a bass jig, but they shouldn’t be.  They look great and smallmouth bass love eating a tube.

Curly Tail Grubs

Curly Tail Grubs are very underfished when it comes to bass jig trailers.  The curly tail action is just what you need sometimes to get a smallmouth bass interested in striking. Hope them along or swim them slowly for good results.

Twin Tail Grubs

Twin Tail Grubs are also awesome trailers and very underfished when it comes to bass jig trailers for smallmouth bass.  Hop these along and let that extra kick from the legs attract more smallmouth bass to your favorite bass jig.
