Gary Yamamoto Double Tail Hula Grub - 5''
Gary Yamamoto Double Tail Hula Grub Review
Love the movement of the hula grub in water. Consistently attracts the attention of largemouth bass. We've found success with it both with and without a jig head.

Best Bug Bait
When you want to work a bait super slow, especially during the warmer months, this is the perfect choice. It's during this time you'll often find the fish sluggish, yet willing to pounce on an easy Crawdad. That's when you go Malibu-style (weightless T-rig) with this puppy and dance it very slowly on the bottom.
This 2+ pounder wasn't sure he wanted to eat my offering. He kept picking it up and dropping it. Everytime he let it go, I gave the bait a little "Doodle Dance" on a very slack line making it vibrate in place. It kept him coming back ... and, finally, enticed him to pick it up and head for deeper waters. That's when I set the hook, BAM!, and proceeded to have the fight of the day. This brute even managed to peel a little line off!
I would give it five stars, but you can get this bait's cousin for $2.50 less per pack. The Kinami Double Tailed Skirted Grub (also made by Yamamoto) is just as deadly!

Bait on Shelf
This is one of the best baits one could match with a Jig. Gary Yamamoto hit a home run with this one the bait outlast and outperforms any other skirted double tail I have tried. Bass pro shop keep up the good Job and keep it on the shelf it is hard to find, in Ohio anyhow.

I bought a pack of these this spring just to try something different than the Senko's. Boy am I glad I did.
I run the dark green Texas-rigged on braid. It has been amazing. The second fish I caught on it was a 21", 5.5lb largemouth. For some reason, this bait only catches big fish. Rarely anything under legal size. I went back to the store and bought all they had.
Recently I tried some of the other lures in my box just for some variety... Nothing else worked. Halfway through my trip, I changed back, and immediately the fish were back on.
I love the action, and with the lakes/ponds that I fish, weedless is an absolute necessity. It's a little tough to pull through lily pads, but with the Texas rig, it floats over the top of most other weeds.
The big ones hit it hard.
Keep them away from the sunfish, they like to pick the tails off of them. Pickerel love them too. I've lost a lot of rigs to their teeth.
Pros: Great action, always catches the fish.
Cons: expensive, not very durable, doesn't cast as far as senkos
Bottom line, these things catch big bass. It's worth the money.
