Wanna do a little hawg callin'? Pitch this plump bodied Salty Fat Albert grub out there to bring those heavy sows a-runnin'. And once they zoom in and clamp down, the Fat Albert's heavy salt load makes sure they won't let go. These versatile, high-action grubs are very effective jigged or Texas rigged.
Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 56 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Purchase Ever I am not using basspro.com's suggested title because I'm not creative, it's because it perfectly applies to this lure. Fat Albert grubs are Zoom's best lures apart from the fluke. they're just as versatile, because they can be rigged on a 2/0 gamakatsu hooks and swam near the surface, or hopped through nests on a shaky head. zoom advertises these grubs as good spawning grubs. they're right. i have had this lure right in a nest, and i didn't think that the bass had seen it, but lo and behold she went over and gulped that thing. i didn't set the hook on her because i didn't want to her eggs to be eaten, but these grubs are great. i have swam them through pads near the surface and pike have devastated this thing with explosive strikes. these are also nice in saltwater, when swam near the surface for some reason. anyway, i recommend watermelon seed. these grubs are cheap, so they already have an advantage over competitors. the durability of the tails is also good, depending on the fish. pike tend to tear the grubs right off the hook, so if you fish with these for members of that family of fish be prepared to lose some. as i said, they're cheap. buy these, you won't regret it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by A LITTLE OVER WEIGHT? I find these work well on a larger jig or just T-rigged, but for a spinnerbait or chatterbait, I prefer a Powergrub. The Albert's fat tail gets in the way of the trailer hook on these baits. The Powerbait scent grabs their attention and makes them hold on as well. February 20, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by : Best Purchase Ever Best grub I ever used. Use it alone or on as a trailer. October 21, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great bait These Zoom Fat Albert- 5" work great for bass, crappie and even pike. I use on a 1/8 oz jig head with a 2/0 hook. If I could only choose one bait, this would be it. October 9, 2013

Hi, thank you for your question. The Chartreuse Pearl colors is a good option for fishing shallow, grassy flats, or where the water is a little off color and the sky is bright.

Staff Answer
A: 
Hi, thank you for your question. When settling the best color, a very general set of rules apply to the majority of conditions. Type of water, day (bright or overcast) and forage situations.

Here are some general guidelines for selecting the right color to match the situation:
1. Clear Water. Color selection is critical when faced with clear conditions as fish are able to give baits a serious once-over from a distance. In clear water—match the hatch. I hate using that all-so-tired cliché, but it is so applicable. Clear water dictates a pattern that closely mimics the predominant baitfish in the particular bay, bayou, river, flat or blue water you are fishing. If it is killifish, then use a killifish pattern. Knowledge of the local water always helps with clear-water color selections.
2. Semi-Stained Water. In mildly stained water, opt for relatively neutral colors. Why this may be hard to believe, in the water, blue, red and orange all appear neutral.
3. Overcast, Dark Days. When overcast, opt for dark colors; these include black, gold and varying shades of gray.
4. Bright, Clear Days. On bright, bluebird days lean toward light colors. These include white, chartreuse, chrome and silver.

A: 
The hook size is not to big. Remember the wieght is very important to get the right speed and action on the grub. Many fisherman use this on a texas rig for a larger compact bait in structure. Using a texas rig allows the combination to be endless on wieghts and hook size.

I use as light as possible for the conditions. From the bank I'll use a 1/16th on a day without wind. 1/8th for windy or from a boat. Heavier if you need to more than 20 feet deep.

A: 
I will give you an honest answer, but may not be what you wanted. When I fish grubs, I use anywere from a 1/8 oz to a 1/4 oz jig. What I try to do is taylor it to the presentation I am after. If I want to fish of the bottom, I find a weight that will bounce bottom during the retrieve, but not drag on the bottom. If I want to go with a swimming retrieve I will go with a lighter jig. Hope this helps, and for what its worth, the most common size I use in less then 10 fow is a 3/16 oz.

I fish grubs mostly on 1/4oz and 5/16oz jig heads. I could not find exactly what I wanted so I had one of the tacklemakers on Tackle Underground make me some to order.

A: 
Depends on how you plan to fish it. I generally swim it and use 1/8 oz jig head. But if the wind is blowing or you want to get it deeper - you will need more weight.

A: 
I personally use a 3/16 oz or sometimes 1/8oz. Let the situation dictate what size. In the river with current and high water I use heavier weights, in ponds in shallower water I use lighter weights. I like to swim the jig in the river while maintaining contact with the bottom. In ponds I concentrate swimming the grub over suspended bass.

Your best best is to use a 1/4 oz. lead head/jig head. It will be heavy enough to sink but at a nice slow, fall.

A: 
I don't use a jig head for this one. I find that rigging it Texas style with a #2 or 3 offset hook, a light conical sliding weight, and a bead work best. Use just enough weight to give yourself good casting action and let the lure bounce along the bottom.

The grub you are looking for is the Johnson Sizzler grub. If you search the web you may find some. These used to work great for pike, looked like an inline spinner in the water.
