I tied on some football jigs and did a bucket test with a rage craw and was pretty disappointed. The pinchers on it just fall and sit flat on the bottom when sitting still. I was hoping they would float up when sitting still.

As you drag the jig along the bottom that will give the trailer action.

Try testing out an Xcite craw as a trailer.

I pitched jigs in my pool for about an hour last week and went through all my trailers. The one that worked the best at slow speeds was the Paca chunk. Twin tail grubs do well too if you like that profile. I was shocked at how little action you get out of most trailers. Almost none of them do anything on the fall.

I use to overthink this. Now i use one thing. A twin tail grub. Pick whatever brand you think is cool, id venture to guess they all work. I use the zoom “fat albert” i believe its called.
