Which method do you prefer?

I love fishing with minnows but slowly working maribou jigs around trees is great too.


On average, your heart beats 100,000 times a day. One day, one of those heartbeats will be your last. Then what?

The answer is found in Jesus Christ who said "I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly." John 10:10

Prefer soft plastics not only for the diversity in designs, but versatility in presentation. Nice thing is that they catch ALL species from big catfish to panfish and bass.
One design I found worked by accident and it involves using a mini stick wacky rigged.

It's nothing more than a 2 1/4" stick bait that I poured rigged with a light jighead. The action on the drop is the same as a 5" Senko wacky rigged on a bare hook.
Here are examples of what the lure has caught since I discovered it last spring using different colors:

For the heck of it I figured, why not cut the tails off some curl tail grubs, fuse the bodies together with a candle flame and use them the same way!
The concept is the same except the action must be added using rod twitches at different depths from 3-8'. Here are some examples using different grub bodies:

Then I experimented rigging them the usual way with the head at one end: continued in the next reply.

One thing this proves just like the Senko: the lure doesn't have to have an action tail (curl tail or boot tail) to catch fish seeing as how the body has all the action a fish needs be provoked into striking. With the quality of fish being on average far better than in the north, I'll bet these lures and rigs would blow away most any fish your waters hold.

Here are some examples of grub bodies fused together, but note, a light jig head and light line is always needed for it to work:
