Zoom® Fat Albert - 5"
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 5 out of 5 by bassfisherman123 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 jKyleC Got me my first bass this spring on spinnerbait I was pleased with the design and length. Can be used in several different scenarios. Any way you rig looks great April 6, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Brooke1023 Works when most wont. I have used these ever since I was a child. They work best when there are weed coverage, banks, and fallen trees. Personal best color is Salt and Pepper. although I will throw a Chartreuse in spring season. Have a few other colors to try this year but haven't had the chance to use them yet. Have caught Bass, (small and largemouth) Perch, and walleye. Overall Great Product! March 15, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Midwest70 No Durability I understand that ultra soft plastics are good for bites, but this grub is too soft. I can not make a cast without the grub sliding off my jig or tearing the grub in half. December 26, 2012

A:1/8 oz works best Texas rigged, any larger size tends to over power it's action
A: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.
A: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.
A: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.
A:We use a 1/16 bass pro shop jig head (Black with white eyes)
Details:I am looking for a grub that was made about 15 years ago. It is a 5"-6" grub that has the tail painted with a flashy silver.
A:Maybe Fat Albert Salt and Pepper or they have different colors too.
A:I have no idea on that one, but Mister Twister has a grub that is about 5 to 7 inches if your interested. It may be close to what your looking for, hope this helps!
A: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.
