How To Fish Texas Rigged Grubs | Weedless Grubs | Bass Fishing

Yeah right in this cover, that is why we throw
Texas rigged grubs. Look at all this coverright here, and he’s buried up in it. Look
at this. Right in all that cover right there,throwing Texas rigged grubs. Right on this
side of his face. Not bad. Boy he ate thatthing, look at how deep it took it man. Let’s
talk about this. I’m gonna show you how to rig it, how to use
the rods, what rods and reels and equipmentto use, and then I’m gonna show you different
techniques 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 babies
right here. Now if you’re not sure how torig one these, I’ve got a video that tells
you 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 using
and the rods, that sort of thing. And then,I’m going to go out and show you how to fish
it. Now with this here, what I do the most with
this bait is I usually swim it back, acrossweeds, across rocky areas, I’m fishing it
that 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 things
and 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 tungsten
weight and 30 pound braid, that’s it. Nowif you don’t plan on flipping or pitching
it into cover you can go with a copolymerline, maybe a 15 pound copolymer line. You
don’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’s
something 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 be
flipping, I use a little bit stouter rod,I’m using a medium heavy action rod. You can
see it’s pretty stout. Bait casting is mypreferred outfit. And that’s all we do, that’s
it. Easy setup, let’s go fish it. So the Texas rig grub, I like to fish it in
a 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 wrapped
up in that stuff and then it’ll get pulledoff and I’ll break it. So I don’t do it as
much. Every once in a while I will but that’sonly when the fish are really chasing bait
fish. 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 tied
on, I’ll throw it in there. Really what I like to use it for is fishing
a situation like this. I’ve got submergedweeds out here, about 4 or 5 feet underneath
the 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 good
place to throw the Texas rig grub. And thereason being is this simple, all you got to
do is cast it out there, let it fall to aboutthe level of those weeds, and then just reel
it back. You’re just cranking it back justlike you would a crank bait. And that’s why
this is really good in an area. So for example, if you’ve been fishing an
area with crank baits and the bite dies offand the fish stop biting it, pick up a Texas
rig grub and keep casting. Many times you’llstart catching them again, you know, you’ll
pick up right where you left off. So that’sa perfect scenario for this bait. Except the
little difference is, because it’s a Texasrig plastic, you can get a little further
down in those weeds than you could with yourcrank baits. So if the fish just aren’t quite
on the surface of those weeds, you want todig down a little bit deeper. That’s another
good scenario to fish this bait. Now the hook set, because the hook is buried
inside the bait, you do want to have a goodstout hook set on this one. So that’s the
difference, 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 really
all there is to it. What I might do is I might swim it. So another
technique 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 tip
and let it fall. Just pick up the slack asit falls. But I’ll drop the rod tip about
the same rate that it falls. Lift it backup again and let it drop back down. Here I’m
maintaining contact with it as it falls straightdown, but I’m still letting it fall straight
down. This is what’s referred to as lettingsomething fall in a semi slack line. And here
you’re just swimming it back and forth likethat. A lot of times as it drops, that’s when
the fish want to bite it. It’s a very versatile bait, lots of different
colors, lots of different sizes. But the retrievesare basically the same. That’s it, that’s
really it. Occasionally I’ve fished it byjust dragging it on the bottom but I’ve really
haven’t had as much luck with that. You typically,if the fish are feeding off the bottom I’ll
use a different bait. Lot of times what I’lldo is, for example in the summer and winter
time 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 target
in the summer and the winter. And then inthe fall and in the spring, when most of the
fish 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, fishing
it just the way I just showed you. If youdo those things, you’re going to catch a lot
of fish. For more tips and tricks like this, visit
