Doing the usual body/tail matches from different soft plastics. Too bad the surfaces of all waters near me are iced over with not a chance of trying them out.

Lots of time to stockpile your plastics for the thaw smile

I got a shipment of skirts from EK last week. Tied about 20 jigs and they worked great the last few trips. I have the jig dialed into the exact weight, type, and group of natural colors. I have been testing out hooks lately trying to fine tune my goto jig.

Do you use a trailer all of the time? Which one if so?

Good combo. The double tail (Mr Twister) was one of my best lures long before I knew how to make my own. Rigged on a 1/8 oz. ballhead jig, they caught smallmouth and LM no matter the water. I never tried them with my skirted jigs seeing as how the #11 Uncle Josh pork frog trailer was king long before soft plastic trailers made the scene. No point having to put something back into a jar after yanking it off the jig when so many plastic trailers work as well.
