There we are! That was easy. Just a littlegrub on a jig head. Ooh, he wants to playtoday. This is candy man, they just cannotresist this, cannot resist it. Come on, don’tgo under the boat. It’s light line, you gottatake your time getting them in. Look at this,look at this. Here we go. Fell victim to a grub here on a jig head. That’s were talking about today. Today I’mgonna show you how to rig it, what type ofequipment to use. And then I’m gonna takeyou on the water and show you what techniquesyou can use for fishing a grub on a jig head. Hey folks, Glenn May, here with BassResource. com. Today I want to talk to you about fishinggrubs. Grubs on a jig head to be specific. If you’re not sure how to rig this, I’vegot a video on how to rig grubs, It’s linkedunderneath this video here, you can take alook at that later, but right now you talkto you about the different equipment and terminaltackle to use and then I’m going to take youout and show you how to fish it. So first off, what I’m using here is a ballhead jig and it’s got a wire guard on there. It’s a real light wire hook. It’s about a1/0 hook, thin for finessing but the guardon there keeps some of the weeds and gunkoff of it and prevents it from getting hungup and stuff. Tied to it I’m using 6 pound fluorocarbonline. The fluorocarbon gives me gives me thatsensitivity I need to feel those light bitesplus it’s clearer in water and doesn’t getto be seen as much. It’s a little more invisible,if you will. I fish in real clear water sothat’s important. Because we’re using real light line we needto match it up with the right rod. So a medium,light action rod. . . that’s the kind thatyou want, because if you have anything heavierthan that you risk breaking the line or straighteningout that hook during the fight and duringthe hook set. So medium light action spinningoutfit is what we are doing. Let me tell you little bit about the weighthere. This weight is just an eighth ounceweight. That’s a great starting point. Goodall round size to use. A lot of the bitescome on the fall, so you want a nice slowfall. You can go up to a quarter ounce weightif you want. If you’re fishing really deepthat’s not a problem, but I wouldn’t reallywant to go any higher than that. So you don’tneed a whole bunch of jig heads. Just getyourself an eighth ounce, quarter ounce, maybea three eighth but no, that’s even too much. That’s all you need. Simple set up. Now we’reready to go. Now you know the equipment. Nowyou know the gear. Let’s go out fishing. All right, so what I’m fishing here is kindof a rocky point, some underwater boulders,with no weeds, which is a great place to fishthis rig. Even though I have a wire guardhere for weeds, I don’t have to worry aboutit because I don’t have any weeds. Really all it takes is a nice light cast youdon’t want to throw it out really far. Justthrow it out, and then let it sink a littlebit and then you’re going to reel it back. That’s the first technique I’m going to showyou here. So you just cast that grub out there. Letit fall. I flip the bail, and then all weare going to do is a steady retrieve. Pointthe rod tip down towards the water and slowlybring it back. And try to follow the contourof the bottom. So you might want give it alittle pause, let it sink a little bit andthen reel again. And that’s all we are goingto do, is follow this point on out and seeif there are any fish hanging out on the bottom. Now the bite sometimes is real subtle, soyou have to pay real close attention to feelingthat. So I like to put the rod at a littlebit of an angle here. It’s a little bit easierto detect the bite. Now to set the hook, because this wire, lightwire hook it’s exposed and you’re only using6 pound test, you don’t have to set the hookreally hard. Matter of fact if you reallypop it hard, you’re just going to break theline or straighten out that hook. So insteadjust reel a bit harder, just pull back onit and you will set the hook. It doesn’t takemuch effort to get that light wire hook togo past the barb in the fish’s mouth and thenyou have them. So let me show you one other way I like tofish this. And that is, you throw it out thereand let it fall. In this case you are goingto let fall way to the bottom, so when youdo pay real close attention to that line. If there are any fish that hits it while it’sfalling the line will pop, twitch, jump, jerk,do something like that. If that happens youwant to set the hook. Now it’s at the bottom, all you’re going todo it point the rod tip down towards the waterand now lift it up to about the 11 o’clockposition and then let it fall. And all I’mdoing is I’m letting, I’m following the dropwith the rod tip and I’m reeling up the slackas I do it. I’m not moving the bait aheadwith the reel, I’m doing that with the rod. So just lift up, slowly, and just let it fall,flutter right back down. A lot of times thosebites occur right as the bait is falling. And that’s really all there is to it to fishinggrubs, it’s very simple, straightforward. The thing about though, here’s a little tip,if you’re catching fish on crankbaits, matterof fact this is a really good place to . . . anywhereyou throw crank baits, that’s where you wantto throw this, but if you are catching fishon crankbaits and the bite dies off. Pickup a grub and go back through those areasand you will start catching fish again. Soyou can cover a lot of water doing it thisway, too. Great way to catch a lot of fish. Now, I’ll fish a little bit differently inthe summer than I do in say the spring. Inthe summer I’m fishing a little bit deeper. I’m fishing main lake points, I might fishhumps, that sort of thing. Whereas in thespring I will go shallow, I will go back tocoves, flats, secondary points, those arethe things I will be targeting. Great baitto use during those times of the year especiallywhen the fish are active and feeding on baitfish. For more tips and tricks like this visit BassResource. com.
