Crappie, bass and bluegill love to inhale our Tournament Series Squirmin'® Squirts. The Squirts' soft, hollow body and fine, undulating tentacles dart through the water like a real minnow. Plus, they are salt-impregnated for maximum attraction and to ensure the fish holds the bite long enough for a solid hook set.

I throw these out on a small jig head and just let them sink. It seems that if you wiggle it or give it too much action they don't want it. I just wait till I feel the tug. I have caught bluegill, crappie, bass, walleye, sauger, and catfish on these. Blue and white seems to get the local crappie stirred up best. Just find a few good brushpiles and you can catch a hundred a day easy.

Big crappie can not resist these jigs in black and chartruse. Best jig on the market, period---- second to none. I have caught thousands of crappie, 10 pound stripers, 10 pound catfish, bluegill, yellow perch, bass,.... on these jigs using the bass pro 1/32 oz. gold hook jigheads. I always say they cant stand the little green bug!

These tube jigs are candy to white perch.If or when crappie slow down ,switch colors readily,and voila they like at least one of the color combos.

I am fishing the Fall season, off banks, in a pond. I jigged the hot pink/white (#09) a few times, then BAM! I got 7 fish in ten minutes. They were hammering this lure! Good job.

Slow retrieval. I like to work mine on the bottom, lightly popping off the bottom every now and then while retrieving slowly with pauses mixed in to let it sink back down some. Patience and finesse is the key to these!
First I would not use these for bass or bluegill. I use them mainly for crappie. If you do use them I've found it best to use a slow vertical motion and occasionally let it go all the way to the bottom. You know the old saying! If you want big fish, (Bass) use a bigger bait.
Cast the Squirmy Squirt and let it settle to the bottom or close to the bottom if you have a lot of vegetation..Retrive slowly with a twitch, stop retrive, and twitch..Works well when is retrived near lilly pads and other structure areas...AL
The best thing about this lure you can use it different ways. You can let it sit there and wait for them, you can do a small yank hear and there retrieving it or you can even real it in with a twitching minnow action that seems to work also. I personally like to have it sit on the bottom twitching it across the bottom slowly like a steady bounce across the bottom.
I fish for anything that will take the jig. Mainly Crappie, but I also catch Bass (sometimes more bass than the people fishing for them--l0l), Catfish, other sun fish & trout. I have fished for crappie for more than 60 yrs. There is not jut one way to fish the jig. It depends on the time of the year, depth of the water & the type of water etc. I have mainly fished CA. & Oregon waters, but also OK, AZ, NV. FL. One trick I have learned is to jerk the lure & let it fall. The strike usually happens on the fall. You also have to watch the line very closely. Any twitch, slack, speed of the bow in line---jerk!! I have watched crappie take in my jig & spit it out in a split sec. You will never know they had taken your jig. I'm sure you know it will also increase your hits if you use crappie nibbles about 20-30% The crappie also keep the jig in their mouth longer.
I have been using these for years w/ good results. I buy 1/8 oz. round head jigs, black w/ yellow eyes, 1/0 hook, and jig spinners in #1or #2 size, and rig the tube on the jig for a little spinnerbait. Catches crappie,bass, pickerel, etc. Inexpensive, too.
I usually rig with a small yellow jig head 1/16", when using the 2" white Squirmy ..I just slide on hook and slip Squirmy up to the back of the jig head..I think it would work with many other set-ups as well..Experiment to find what works best for you..Depth, current , and water clairity are other factors..AL
These can easily be rigged on a small jig head. My favorite way if the jig head doesn't have a matching painted head that gos along with the lure your using is to slip the head inside the body of the tube and pop the eyelet out of the top when its all the way in. Or for the ones with matching painted jig heads put the hook through the top and pull it all the way through and it gives it the minnow look with the eyes on the painted jig head.
slip it right over the jig head. i always leave a tiny gap between the head of the bait and jighead. this adds to the darting action of the bait. after you nudge the jig into the body of the squirt ( i put the eye portion thru first so i don't rip the bait up), then when it's in position i pop the eye thru the tube and tie her on.
