Zoom Fat Albert Twin Tail Grub - 3-1/2''
This bait is great as the sole thing on a jig or as a trailer. I have used it on the river when I have run out of crayfish and on the lake as a trailer for my 1/2 oz or 3/4 oz jigs, it is too large for smaller jigs though. The twin tails provide plenty of action when swimming or jigging. I have caught largemouth, smallmouth, pike and a few other fish that have been near these kinds of fish including a 4lb smallmouth in the Huron river. My only complaint is that one of the tails can be nibbled off by a smaller fish rather easily.

I like to use a lively jig trailer; one that has a swimming action. The trouble is that most of the swimmers are not very durable and tend to slide off the hook and get out of shape. Not the Zoom Fat Albert! It stays put and has all kinds of action, especially on the fall. And like most every other Zoom bait these babies catch fish.

Bait Good - Selection Poor
The bait is great and a killer for smallmouth, largemouth and pike almost anytime of the year. The problem is that the BASS PRO SHOPS stores have a VERY small selection of this bait. IF you need several bags in a variety of colors the only way to buy these baits is online. This is a serious disadvantage if you need the baits in a hurry. Another problem is that this bait is stocked in the stores in the "walleye" aisle. Seems like it should be stocked with the other ZOOM plastic baits for bass.

Best Jig Trailers Around
I saw My favorite fisherman Gerald Swindle using these trailers on his classic pattersn DVD so I wanted to give them a shot and they turned out to be great. They move a ton of water and the curly tails somewhat immitate crawdad pinchers. Also because of the curly tails the action of the jig begins as soon as it hits the water and all the way to the bottom and sometimes I get a strike even before my jig hits the bottom. Thanks zoom for making great and affordable baits.
