South Carolina bass pro Andy Montgomery was at the forefront of the bladed jig revolution and firmly believes that the trailer is the most important part of the overall bladed/vibrating jig package. He shares his top 3 trailers for targeting bass feeding on different forage types and residing in different cover scenarios.
The 2 most important factors dictating what trailer to choose are 1) prevailing forage, and 2) cover being fished. Andy favors minnow-profiled plastics when targeting bass in grass or open water. Conversely, craw or creature-style trailers are his go-to around hard cover and crawfish. Trailer shape has a big impact on the bait’s ability to fish cleanly through cover – Andy details the attributes he looks for in trailers and when he reaches for each.
