Two basic trailers


When it comes to putting a soft plastic on the back of a swim jig, there are literally dozens, if not hundreds, of options these days. While in reality, 90 percent of them can be boiled down to two basic groups: a craw-style trailer and a swimbait-style trailer.

Your craw-style trailers will have two appendages that come out and would lay flat if you were to put the jig down on a surface. Where a swimbait-style trailer obviously runs out to just a single paddle-, boot- or other-style tail. Now there’s still a wide array of baits within each of those categories but a good general example of a craw-style trailer would be something like a Zoom Twin Tail Grub. On the other hand, something like a Zoom Swimmin Super Fluke is a good illustration of a basic swimbait-style trailer.
