Does anyone still swim grubs?
« on: July 06, 2012, 08:46:40 PM »

10 years ago I remember swimming grubs as a major technique for guys in Sturgeon Bay.  Kalin's Witches' Brew, Copperhead, and Lemon Meringue were some odd colors that I remember catching fish on.  Are any of you guys still swimming grubs or has that fallen out favor and been replaced by swimjigs and swimbaits?  Just curious.

I would say that a four inch grub has been one of my mainstays for a long time. Don't tell anyone! They are a smallmouth catching phenom from prespawn, through the spawn, post spawn, right on through the fall. I have my grub and color that I have shopped around and had custom made after my original maker past away.

There's still a few anglers who do it but don't talk about it a lot. Some of them don't mind if others aren't trying it. I've come and gone and come back again on swimming various soft plastics though snap-jigging tubes and grubs is more exciting for me. I do like swim jigs too. The bass like them and if it's good enough for the bass, it's good enough for me.

Help stop invasive spcies. Don't move fish between unconnected bodies of water. Clean, drain and dry your boat before launching on another water body.
