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.
