Rated 4 out of 5 by jlkurt Great but........... I find these to be excellent for Mississippi River walleyes. I actually prefer the 3" over the 5". My only complaint is that Kalin discontinued the best river color, which was firecracker. August 12, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by GSPlayer Very reliable and durable I have been trying various plastic grubs this year, but so far, this 5" grub on a weedless jig head has been the most effective for me. I have tried various colors, but the pumpkin seed color seems to work best in our local lakes and rivers for LG and SM bass, at least in fairly clear water. I caught 15 bass at one of our local lakes yesterday and one bass was 4 LBs. That's a very good day for me. I have also caught a few large catfish with this grub, while fishing for bass. It seems more durable than many other grubs I've tried. I average about 5 to 6 fish on a grub, before it will no longer stay on the hook. July 12, 2012

Details:What EWG hook size? What jig head weight/size? Anyone do it texas-syle or weedless? My goal is lunker smallmouth in clear lakes. Thanks!
A:I use a 4 hook on a hand molded jig head with a 90 degree angle. Use a shad color or a crawfish color with a green pumpkin jig head.
A:I use these at Cranberry with a 1/4 or 3/8 oz Chompers Stand-Up Jighead ,depending on how fast the wind is blowing. Jig it and if they don't hit it on the fall, swim it back. Pull the weedless wire out with a pair of pliers. Weedless is fishless. You might have to pull some weeds off the hook now and then, but you'll hook up on the smallies more often. Blue Pearl has killed them for me.
A:Redbass, I use plain lead head jigs 1/4 to 1/2 oz. with 5". For smallmouth try black and blue combo and fish slow.
A:2/0 is best if using this alone.
Use with 1/4 oz swim jigs. SM crush them.
Also - use on 1/8 oz 3/16 oz Gamakatsu football jig heads (painted or unpainted)
A:redbass i use a no.2 blue hook with a lite bullet wieght and a 6-8 in. purple glitter worm and it works just fine. I use this in the shallows that is how i caught my 24.6 largemouth out of Okauchee Lake, Wisc. Now looking at a smallmouth from Lake Geneva, Wisc. The bass was 7 lb.14 oz. for here that is good
A:FOR A #5 USE A 3/0-4/0 OR EVEN A 5/0 HOOK. FOR THE SINKER USE 1/4 TO 3/8OR1/2 DEPENDING HOW DEEP YOU ARE GOING. TES PEOPLE DO IT TEXAS STILE THOUGH CAROLINA RIGGING IS BETTER.YOU CAN DO IT WEEDLESS WITH WEEDLESS HOOKS YOU CAN BUY FROM BASS PRO SHOPS. HOPE THIS WAS HELPFULL GOOD LUCK
Details:I picked some up today and was surprised that there is no flavour/ scenet that I can tell. Yet I've read in numerous places that these grubs are the cats pajamas. Anyone know what sets them apart?
A:Desigen parameters. Primarily tail performance but also material type and body size and shape. I use them first and foremost. I like that they aren't scent impregnated so I can add my own. Allows me to do a little tweaking when needed. I also like the clear colors so I can dye them to my own specs.
A:i think it's the action and color combo.
A:They actually are salty. I think the action on these grubs set them apart from most grubs. I find them to hold up through several fish and they store really well. Whether carolina rigged or on a jig head I have found them hard to beat.
A:Something about the action of the curly tail for sure. But most of all the subtle glitter of the various colored flakes embedded in the plastic. Kalin seems to have about the right amount of glitz here -not too much, but enough to be noticed. I find them very effective under the right conditions.
A:the grubs are just very realistic, and duplicate a shad very well. a slow up and down technique usually works best.
A:Their look in the water is so lifelike that it fools fish, especially in clearer water! I have fished it all over in all kinds of water clarity and these grubs catch fish!

A:I think its just that grubs in general work well, just my 2c
A:As far as iI know the grubs don't have any scent but has salt added to them. I love these grubs, they have never let me down. It could be the tail action, all I know is that they work and they work very well.

A:They're a good price, hold up very well, and most of the colors are translucent which is a big attractor to fish in clear water. The pearl blue salt and pepper is my favorite!!! I think the colors are the main draw.

A:They are effective because of the action that is give off by the curly tail. Fish are attractive to that wild action that it gives off when fished correctly.
