Burn Grub

SA Bass - - International -

Grubs is one of my most favourite “go-to” baits. Over the years I’ve caught many bass on this lure, rang­ing from the av­er­age small bass to very big ones.

We were spoiled on a re­cent fish­ing trip, fish­ing a pri­vate farm dam un­der ex­treme low wa­ter con­di­tions. The wa­ter clar­ity was clear and un­der­neath the sub­merged wa­ter-grass was an abun­dant of fish. The windy con­di­tions were ideal for throw­ing spin­ner­baits, but I opted to stick to my trusty grubs. Rigged with a very light Mojo sinker, a #1/0 size wide gap hook, I used a Damiki Junebug Burn Grub. For this light rig I used a 6’6” medium power, fast ac­tion spin­ning rod fit­ted with a 2000 se­ries spin­ning reel and 8lbs line.

We started off fish­ing a drop off at the in­let where I made my casts into the wind. To my amaze­ment I caught a lunker which was still busy swal­low­ing a small bass. Soon af­ter­wards I caught another tro­phy size fish that was hunt­ing close by. How many did we land? I lost count.
