Tips on Using Action Baits
When current is moving past bridge
pilings, cast the grub to the down current side of the pole and let it
free-fall straight toward bottom.
When Standing Timber...
In standing timber, work a grub vertically
through the branches. Instead of being pulled across limbs, when
it might snag, it drops into holes between them.
When Drop - Offs...
When fishing grubs on drop-offs, old
creek channels, first locate structure (stumps, treetops, etc.)
Ideal structure would be located on the shallow side of the drop with
additional structure located deep. For best results, cast to the
shallow side of the drop and slowly work off the ledge to the deep
"Always"! stay in good
contact with your line and grub, both visually and feel. Always
watch for slight twitches of the line. When your bait is falling,
if it stops too soon set the hook.
99% of the time, strikes will occur
while the grub is falling!
Around riprap and rocky
shorelines, use the stranded plastic-worm retrieve with a grub, toss-lag
it near the bank and bringing it down the incline in short hops.
