I'm not much on ARIG's. What are some trailers that won't break the bank? Is winter time like now a good time to use them?

I use the Keitech swing impact trailers that Academy has and I super glue them up on the jig heads.Even doing that, if i'm on a lot of fish they will get torn up. Sometimes just the tail will go missing, lol. In my experience, and have been told, the cold weather is the ideal time to throw them. That doesn't mean you can't catch them on it when it's warm, but sometimes the fish start bunching up on humps and long points a little deeper and I can really whack them with the A-rig.

Kicker Fish Tail slappers. Just like the Keitech IMO but way cheaper. A rig is way to much fun when you find the fish bunched up. Takes a big rod to throw it with out killing you in the process. Hog Farmer and Flash Mob Jr with blades are a good one to use.

Keitech 3.5 Swing Impact

I like to use the 3.5" NON-FAT Swing Impact the majority of the time. I feel like I get a lot more bites with the smaller size and the quality is still there, in terms of the bass' size. If the water is a little murky, I'll bump to the 4". If the water is muddy or I'm at Rayburn or I'm on Pickwick lake, I'll throw a 4.5" or 5". Keitech swimbaits are the best swimbaits on the market if you ask me. The action that they have is unmatched! A lot of sizes and colors to choose from, and I like that because I'm a man who likes variety.

I throw an A-Rig in every month of the year except July and August. They'll work any time of the year but they shine the best, November-March.

I agree with Marc about the Kicker Fish Tail slappers. Great baits and cheaper than the Keitech which are good baits. I like the Swimmin Fluke on the Center hook as the larger bait.

I use the smash rig with smash tail jr swimbaits. The swimbaits have a great action and are perfect for A rigs.
Heath makes some good baits and is a TFF member himself. Check his stuff out
