Bass Fishing Jig Trailers

Bass Fishing Jig Trailers

Jig TrailersNearly any softbait can function as a trailer on a bass jig, depending on the fishing situation. During the early years, pork chunks or strips were dominant, and many experts continue to rely on pork in various situations. But today's trailers come in vast variety of sizes, shapes, and colors. Here's a look at some of the new creations anglers are hanging on their jigs.

Bass Assassin Pure Craw

The 4-inch Pure Craw is the company's redesigned crawdad with broad claws and a thick body for a lifelike look. It comes in 21 colors and is infused with BANG Fish Attractant and a new liquid salt formula.

Bruiser Baits Avenger

The Avenger is packaged with claws molded together to produce a slow, gliding fall. Pull the claws apart and Avenger has a flapping action while swimming or falling.

Evolve Vibra Grub

Available in 3- and 4-inch sizes, the Vibra Grub has a solid body and a thin plastic exterior running from head to tail that makes the lure flutter in leechlike fashion as though its propelling itself through the water.

Kinami Psycho Dad

Designed by 'œpunching' guru Bub Tosh, the Psycho Dad is a small craw for punching through mats. It has large round claws for a paddling action as it swims and a rattle chamber big enough to hold a 7-mm rattle.

Reaction Innovations Kinky Beaver

The originators of beaver-style baits add Kinky Beaver, with flappers and long thin twister tails for added attraction.

Tightlines Uv Jig Trailer

The 4-inch UV Jig Trailer has a craw profile and flapping claws, and UV Craw Trailer has a hollow, tube-style body to help stand a jig up, available in five UV colors.

Z Man Palmetto BugZ

In their highly flexible and durable ElaZtech material, the company adds a 4-inch Palmetto BugZ, with a ribbed body, serrated beaver-style tail, and flappers.

Zipper Wide Body Craw

The 4½-inch Zipper Wide Body Craw emits bubbles after it settles to the bottom and its claws are beveled to add vibration, with classic zipper body for chewiness.

Zoom Z-Hog

Z-Hog has a compact body with a 'œrabbit ear' tail (similar to the Super Chunk Junior) and two small flappers on each side to allow the body to slide and punch through thick grass.

Netbait Kickin\' B Chunk

The company has added four new colors in its popular jig trailers including Paca Chunk, Paca Chunk Jr. and Sr., Kick'n B Chunk, and Tiny Paca Chunk.

Mister Twister Poc\' It Craw

The 3½-inch Poc' It Craw traps air in pockets and releases bubbles during the retrieve, increasing action and vibration, in four colors.

Gene Larew Rattlin\' Crawler

With exaggerated arm angles and oversized paddles, the 4¼-inch Rattlin' Crawler has plenty of kick even on slow retrieves. Its underside has 'œnoise ridges' to add vibration and a large rattle in its hollow body to create sound.

Bass Pro Shops

The Tournament Series Incredible Craw is geared toward finesse rigging or small natural-colored jig for clear-water applications. The Craw has a detailed head and is infused with Yum scent. The XPS Double Tail Grub has a ribbed body and two action tails that creates additional vibration to summon strikes.

Berkley

The Havoc series of baits, deisgned by Berkley's pro staff, continues to grow. The 4-inch Pit Chunk, designed by former Bassmaster Classic Champ Skeet Reese, adds life to a jig through its oversized pinchers. The 4-inch Rocket Craw, designed by former FLW Champion Scott Suggs, features large pincers for stirring water and silt to imitate a fleeing craw. The 3½-inch Slop Craw, another Skeet Reese creation, has mini claws to help it punch through thick mats. The Deuce, from Gary Klein, has a double-tail design that delivers movement at slow speeds and has a longer body to use on a jig with a large hook. Bobby Lane of Florida chipped in with the Craw Fatty, a flat-body craw with flapping claws, as well as the latest, the Hawk Hawg, with 4 wings, 2 appendages and 2 long curly tails. In the Powerbait line, the 4-inch Thief is a beaver-style bait with flappers and tapered claws. And the Power Claw's pincers are turned in to create a flapping action on the retrieve, ideal for swim jigs.

Big Bite Baits

The 4-inch Swimming Craw has large ribbed flappers for pinchers that generate a vibrant swimming action. YoDaddy is a 3-inch bait with narrow body and wide claws, enhanced with small flappers and antennae. Two sizes of Craw Chunk have outstretched pincers. Their Finesse Double Tail Grub matches football heads or swim jigs. All baits are fortified with Bite Juice.

Chompers

The 5-inch Swim Jig Trailer has a long twister tail and two lateral twisters that give a jig lots of rippling action at the slightest movement. Impregnated with garlic and salt, the 4½-inch Wild Hawg and 3½-inch Baby Wild Hawg have flappers and twin-tails to boost action.

Luck E Strike

The company that introduced one of the most famous jig trailers ever, the Guido Bug, adds a chunk-style trailer, the 3- and 4-inch Rick Clunn's Jig Trailer, in 8 colors. Another introduction is the Fighting Craw in three sizes. It features a hollow body and hollow claws that allow the lure to stand up in a lifelike defensive posture.

Missile Baits

John Crews' company introduces the D-Bomb, a flattened beaver-style bait with pronounced ribs on the body to make it supple and chewy to fish. Missile Craw is a narrow, tapered bait suitable for punching dense grass. Twin Turbo is a 3-inch double-tail trailer.

Power Team Lures

The fluid motion of its claws and its neutral buoyancy give the 3.5-inch Craw D'oeuvre a lifelike action when crawled, hopped, or dead-sticked. The 4.5-inch Conviction Craw is a meaty craw-creature hybrid that makes a bulky trailer.

Strike King Lure Company

The 4-inch Rage Craw and 3-inch Rage Chunk have oversized claws for intense vibration and are loaded with coffee scent. Available in 17 colors, the 4-inch Rage Twin Tail Menace is the newest addition to the Rage Tail line. Designed by bassin' superstar Kevin VanDam, the KVD Chunk comes in two sizes — 3½-inch Srchunk and 2¼-inch Jrchunk. Infused with coffee scent and salt, they have elongated pinchers for flipping, swimjigs, and football jigs.

Trigger X

The tail design of the 4-inch Goo Bug allows you to fish it two ways. With tail intact, it has a gliding action; cutting it creates crawfish pinchers. Flappin' Craw's broad pincers imitate a crawfish in defensive mode at rest, and create a kicking action in motion.

Yum F2

The new F2 Craw Chunk (2¾ and 3¾ inches) has oversized pincers that undulate with every rod movement. It has thickened rib ends to create erratic movement from the claws. The F2 Mighty Craw also is infused with Yum F2 attractant and has long, thin claws and crawfish appendages that provide action, even when dead-sticked.
