Kalin's Sizmic Grub

Kalin's Sizmic Grub

Kalins-Sizmic-Grub-1024x556

When Uncle Josh Bait Company recently introduced its Kalin's Sizmic Grub to the angling world, they trumpeted it as "the next generation of grub fishing." And it immediately caught the attention of several Midwest finesse anglers.

It is endowed with the ribbed torso similar to the one that anglers can find on Kalin's Lunker Grub. But in the middle of the Sizmic Grub, where the torso narrows at the junction of the tail, there is a small bubble or round ball, which some anglers call an egg sack. This bubble was designed to be a hinge, and its aim is to accentuate the gyrations of the tail. Instead of a curly tail, the Sizmic Grub possesses what the folks at Uncle Josh call a unique swimbait tail. The top of this tail features a flange or rim along its edge, and that flange or rim is comprised of 13 ribs. At the end of the tail, there is a paddle. In some anglers' eyes, portions of the tail exhibit a few of the characteristics of a cut-tail worm.

Ultimately, it will be manufactured in four sizes: two inches, three inches, 3.8 inches, and 4.8 inches. At this moment some of these sizes are manufactured in the following 10 colors: Blue Pearl Salt and Pepper, Chartreuse Silver, Golden Splash, Green Pumpkinseed, K-Shad, Life-Like Red, Pumpkin Salt and Pepper, Rainbow Shimmer, Southern Shad, and White Pearl. More colors might be in the offing.


Most Midwest finesse anglers will affix the three- and 3.8-inch Sizmic Grub to either the three- or 3.8 — inch Sizmic Grub to a 1/16- or 3/32-ounce mushroom style jig. But other anglers might wield them -- especially the 4.8-inch rendition -- on an Alabama rig or on a jig similar to Gene Larew Lures' Biffle HardHead jig.


A package of 10 three-inchers or a package of eight 3.8-inchers can be purchased from one online retailer for $4.49. Uncle Josh notes that the suggested retail price for a package of three-inchers is $5.49, and it is $6.24 for a package of 3.8-inchers.
