My Oldest son (he’s grown now with his own family) likes to tell a story from his childhood about a fishing trip where we were catching fish from our boat and a local boy was shore fishing and yelled out to us : Hey mister whatcha catching ’em on?.. I replied “small plastic baits”. Where did you get the most? the boy said… “various spots along the river” was my answer. What depth? … well you can kinda guess my answer. 🙂 .. Yes I was very secretive in my younger fishing days. But now I enjoy sharing my knowledge. The lure we were using that fall day and catching over 50 quality bass was a unassuming small thing called a grub. One just like this one:
The above bait works well with 6 or 8 pond test line and a light action rod. You can experiment with different sizes and weights and of course depending on the “on the water” conditions such as depth and wind factors you may have to go to a heaver jighead. The basic retrieve is just a slow swimming of the lure or a drag and drop as it hops along the bottom. Sometimes in winter letting it sit on the bottom more than moving it will produce nice hard hits. I don’t think you can fish it wrong, just experiment…. A visible line is nice to have because sometimes you can see your line “pop” before you feel a hit.
I have caught many thousands of fish on this simple, inexpensive,easy to fish lure. Everything that swims WILL hit it at one time or another!…. If I was packing an emergency fishing kit I would definitely have some grubs in it! Get out there and get ’em!
