What are yalls favorite swim jig trailers? Do you have a different preference when throwing over thick grass as opposed to fishing deep timber or does the bait you are trying to mimic come more into play when choosing trailers?

I mostly use a rage craw because it has a pretty good swimming action and has enough lift to slow roll over subsurface hydrilla. I have used a few paddletail swimbaits but they don't seem to have the resistance and lift to keep the jig higher in the water column. I'm trying to expand my swim jig game but I keep coming back to the old trusty rage craw.

I mostly just use paddle tail swimbait the majority of the time. But I also sometimes use a Rage Craw. If it's working for you, stick with it.

In addition to the above, I like the Havoc Subwoofer. Cheap, durable & a nice thump.

Anything rage I guess

Sometimes a Speed Craw for a little more subtle action. Also, an LFT Magic Shad

Thanks everyone. Will check some of these others out but sounds like the rage craw is a popular choice. What color does everyone go with? I always hear white but have never had any luck with it. I always go with different variations of green pumpkin.

Zoom Fat Albert Twin Tail Grub - It works so well for me it's hard to try anything else. I will use a paddle tail type trailer if fishing deeper and don't want as much lift. Pearl white on white jig works really well for me.
