When it's warm mostly something with some "kick" to it, when it's colder something with a little more bulk and more of a "dead" action...

Twin tail grub is my go to winter trailer if not using pork, works great on a finesse style jig.

I like to rotate between a Menace Grub, a Zoom Swimming Chunk, and half of a Baby Brush Hog. I prefer trailers with a swimming action and less bulk so I can wind or drag the jig.

Green pumpkin speed craw or super speed craw most of the time, I change it up to a menace grub or Zoom Z-craw jr. or rage craw. Usually match the jig.

Cabin Creek Bait Company's 3.5" Express Craw. They float and have good action like a rage craw. They work really well.

I rarely ever match anymore. Sometimes I will stick in the same color family, but even then I will go with a watermelon trailer with green pumkinish jig. I will often times complement the jig with the trailer or vice versa. For example a neutral green pumpkin jig I will use a trailer with purple and green fleck to give it the bluegill color. The opposite would be a Watermelon Candy Jig with a flat Green Pumpkin trailer. Some of my favorites are a black and blue jig with a green pumpkin trailer or a Black/Brown/Amber jig with a purple trailer or Green pumpkin trailer. I rarely match my skirt with my trailer, but that's just my personal taste to make it a bit different than what they see everyday. In a nutshell if it's a busy jig I tone it down with a neutral trailer. If it's a solid or neutral jig I will spice it up with a busy trailer.

As to what trailers I use, well....... I'm a bit secretive on those wink
