    Rigging jig trailers

 How do y'all prefer to rig jig trailers? Do you thread it up the shank (which looks more natural to me) or do you simply hook it through the middle of the chunk so that it dangles further from the body (which would seem to have more movement)?


Still trying to improve my jig fishing and wanting to know what works for you and why.

 I assume you are talking about chunck type of trailers. For pork, the only way is hook though in the middle. Fat side down (away from hook point) or fat side up is a personal preference. For plastic chunck, I have to see the jig hook, trailer keeper, and length of the chunck body. I never like hook though middle. I just don't have confidence even I caught fish rigged that way. If I have the jig with shorter hook, little to none trailer keeper, and chunck has a small boby, I just hook it in the middle. I alwasy try put it though the hook shank if possible.

 90% of the time I'm threading my trailer (plastic) onto the shank. If I'm using a craw worm for a trailer I then tear off the appropriate amount to get the look I want. I suppose that is a lot of it, How do we want the jig to look.

 It depends on the water I'm fishing mostly. If I'm fishiing clear or cold water then I thread the plastic trailer on the hook. If I'm fishing murky water or warm water I want a bigger profile so I hook the trailer on. I guess its a matter of personal choice.

GL in however you choose to do it, Brian
