Yeah right in this cover, that is why we throwTexas rigged grubs. Look at all this coverright here, and he’s buried up in it. Lookat this. Right in all that cover right there,throwing Texas rigged grubs. Right on thisside of his face. Not bad. Boy he ate thatthing, look at how deep it took it man. Let’stalk about this. I’m gonna show you how to rig it, how to usethe rods, what rods and reels and equipmentto use, and then I’m gonna show you differenttechniques on how to throw Texas rigged grubs. Hey folks, Glenn May here with BassResource. com. And today I want to talk to you about fishinga Texas rig grub. Yeah, one of these babiesright here. Now if you’re not sure how torig one these, I’ve got a video that tellsyou how to do that and it’s linked underneaththis video and you can go check that out later. But what I’m going to talk about today isthe different eternal tackle that I’m usingand the rods, that sort of thing. And then,I’m going to go out and show you how to fishit. Now with this here, what I do the most withthis bait is I usually swim it back, acrossweeds, across rocky areas, I’m fishing itthat way. Every once in a while I’ll flipit into reeds or weeds, that kind of stuff,but not real heavy cover. And that’s becausewith this tail it likes to wrap around thingsand then when you pull it, it’ll break off. So I’m not throwing it into heavy, heavy cover. So for that reason, I’m using a lighter sinkerhere. This is just an eighth ounce tungstenweight and 30 pound braid, that’s it. Nowif you don’t plan on flipping or pitchingit into cover you can go with a copolymerline, maybe a 15 pound copolymer line. Youdon’t need to go that heavy with this becausewe’re not digging fish out of deep heavy cover. But I like to use the braid just in case there’ssomething nearby I feel like, hey I want toflip into that. That’s why I go with braid,a little bit more versatility. So that’s thatand because I’m using braid and I might beflipping, I use a little bit stouter rod,I’m using a medium heavy action rod. You cansee it’s pretty stout. Bait casting is mypreferred outfit. And that’s all we do, that’sit. Easy setup, let’s go fish it. So the Texas rig grub, I like to fish it ina couple different ways. One of them I occasionallywill flip and pitch it into weeds or reeds,into some woody cover. But I don’t do thatvery often because the tail likes to get wrappedup in that stuff and then it’ll get pulledoff and I’ll break it. So I don’t do it asmuch. Every once in a while I will but that’sonly when the fish are really chasing baitfish. Usually I’ll throw something else inthere but if I happen to have one tied on,I want to throw it quickly into a bush pile,or something like that, I’ve got one tiedon, I’ll throw it in there. Really what I like to use it for is fishinga situation like this. I’ve got submergedweeds out here, about 4 or 5 feet underneaththe water, it’s about 15 feet of water. That’swhen this shines. Or fishing rocky cover,rocky banks, that sort of thing. Anywhereyou would throw a crank bait that’s a goodplace to throw the Texas rig grub. And thereason being is this simple, all you got todo is cast it out there, let it fall to aboutthe level of those weeds, and then just reelit back. You’re just cranking it back justlike you would a crank bait. And that’s whythis is really good in an area. So for example, if you’ve been fishing anarea with crank baits and the bite dies offand the fish stop biting it, pick up a Texasrig grub and keep casting. Many times you’llstart catching them again, you know, you’llpick up right where you left off. So that’sa perfect scenario for this bait. Except thelittle difference is, because it’s a Texasrig plastic, you can get a little furtherdown in those weeds than you could with yourcrank baits. So if the fish just aren’t quiteon the surface of those weeds, you want todig down a little bit deeper. That’s anothergood scenario to fish this bait. Now the hook set, because the hook is buriedinside the bait, you do want to have a goodstout hook set on this one. So that’s thedifference, if you’re fishing a crank baitmost of the time the fish just hook themselves. So if you switch over to this, get ready tochange your hook set as well. And that’s reallyall there is to it. What I might do is I might swim it. So anothertechnique when I throw it out here is I’lldo a little up and down. So I’ll let it fall,let it get down in those weeds a little bit,reel up the slack, and lift up that rod tipand let it fall. Just pick up the slack asit falls. But I’ll drop the rod tip aboutthe same rate that it falls. Lift it backup again and let it drop back down. Here I’mmaintaining contact with it as it falls straightdown, but I’m still letting it fall straightdown. This is what’s referred to as lettingsomething fall in a semi slack line. And hereyou’re just swimming it back and forth likethat. A lot of times as it drops, that’s whenthe fish want to bite it. It’s a very versatile bait, lots of differentcolors, lots of different sizes. But the retrievesare basically the same. That’s it, that’sreally it. Occasionally I’ve fished it byjust dragging it on the bottom but I’ve reallyhaven’t had as much luck with that. You typically,if the fish are feeding off the bottom I’lluse a different bait. Lot of times what I’lldo is, for example in the summer and wintertime when the fish are out a little bit deeperin the main lake, I’ll fish main lake points,rock humps, rock piles, ledges, creek channels,those types of things. That’s what I’ll targetin the summer and the winter. And then inthe fall and in the spring, when most of thefish are up shallow and feeding, I’ll go tothe back of coves, the back of creek channels,protected bays, secondary points, and flats. That’s what I’ll target with this bait, fishingit just the way I just showed you. If youdo those things, you’re going to catch a lotof fish. For more tips and tricks like this, visitBassResource. com.
