With all of the talk about the "newer" baits like swimbaits, jerkbaits, etc ....... I was wondering if anyone still uses plain old grubs on a jighead anymore?

We caught a ton of fish over the years with that simple bait.

I use them all the time. I have great success with 4-5" grubs. I mainly fish ponds though.

Mann's Stingray grub , great for schooling bass and crappie .
Another thing I just started doing recently , take a 2.75" or 3.5" Tube , use a wide gap weighted insert head ( smaller is best , 1/16oz or 1/8oz ) , then take the tail end of a floating worm , about 2" or 2.5" , then insert half of the way into the tube and use Mend it to glue the butt ends together . If done correctly , you will have a small sealed airpocket in the tube and a floating tail ---- these combined will give the tube a slower , darting fall than usual tube presentations .
tight lines for sure !!!

Zoom's Fat Albert Twin Tails make excellent trailers for bladed jigs.

I still do some on clear highland lakes, not so much on lakes around the metromess (some on PK if bite is tough)

We always used Fat Alberts on a 3/16 or 1/4 round head. Great smallmouth baits in the TN lakes.

Sinner. Far from perfect. Forgiven.

Use them a lot after cold fronts and in small ponds. Bass inhale then.

I was just thinking the same thing the other day. Wouldn't the old sting ray grub be similar to our modern day ned rig. A place I worked for when i was younger had a stingrays grub imitation in rootbeer gold flake, avocado gold flake and avocado red flake . I sure wish I still had some of those now days.
