I'm new to jig fishing I have been using rage speed craws and beaver style baits on my flipping jigs and they seem to work well so I just got a bunch of new swim jigs and was wondering what to use for a trailer on these or to use one at all? Any help would be appreciated

I also use all the baits mentioned above. Speed craws and small swimbait a work best.

There are thousands of options; everything from single tail grubs to double tail tralers to swim baits and paddle tail worms to craws and other creatures. Quit now while you're ahead.

I'd start by keeping it simple
Sounds like you have confidence in Rage Craws and Speed craws. Start by using those: Pearl color to imitate shad and green pumpkin for blue gills. You might find that taking off one of the craws seems to work better at times.

NetBait Paca Chunks or Paca Craws work really well also. They are less expensive than Rage Tails

Rage Craws are solid swimjig trailers. The Strike King Menace Grub and Zoom Speed Craws are great for when you need to downsize.

I don't like the hook to be too full of plastic. I use the swim tail worms and small body swim tail plastics. Sometimes they want the twin tails on cloudy and rainy days.

Nailed it!


I like the Skinny Dipper for imitating shad or bluegill, and I like a Rage Craw or Speed Craw for imitating a craw.
