Twin Tailed Grubs

Twin tail grubs work well for smallmouth 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 excellent baits for targeting smallmouth bass.  Rig these on a jig, shaky head jig, Texas rig, Florida rig, swimbait hook or a weightless rig and target smallmouth bass shallow or deep and you’ll catch some fish.

Best Rigs for Twin Tail Grubs and Smallmouth Bass 


A simple jighead is probably the best way to rig a variety of different twin tail grubs on the market.

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.

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.

Split Shot Rig

The split shot rig is a great rig for the skirted twin tail grubs.  With a light split shot, these baits fall slowly to the bottom and look really good.  Twitch them, pause them and wait for the bite.

Drop Shot Rig

The drop shot rig and skirted twin tail grubs make an excellent combination.  Work them along and then let them free fall and you will catch plenty of smallmouth bass with them.

Weightless Rig

The weightless rig is a great way to rig the skirted twin tail grubs.  When the smallmouth bass are in the shallows, this is a tough presentation to beat.
