In cold water up to say low 50's I fish the real thing-Uncle Josh #11 pork. Above low 50's I'll usually switch to a plastic craw or twin tail. I have convinced myself they hold onto pork longer-especially in real cold water.

I use 3 or 4" grub trailers on all spinnerbaits and bass jigs. I like the extra action and the smell/ taste/ feel can't hurt. I also like the way a trailer cam make a smaller bait look bigger. I also tend to use small (1-2") curly tail grub trailers on inline spinners....just bite most of the body off and attach it to one of the trebles. I have tried bitten off grub trailers on spoons such as johnsons silver minnow...good for pike or bass but it does affect the action of the spoon a little.

What Kirby said. Nothing beats Big Daddy Uncle Josh trailers in cold water.

I usually don't put a trailer hook on, I just thread the grub on the main hook of the spinnerbait or buzzbait. If I'm getting a lot of nippy little strikes, I may put a trailer hook on and then put the grub on the trailer but It's pretty rare that I use trailer hooks...I have an unopened package in my tackle bag, I don't think I used one all last year.

I've had success with a Strike King Bitsy jig in a rootbeer w/
orange/green flake. For a trailer a 3" Yamamoto twin tail grub in cinnamon w/green flake. For good measure I coat the grub with Nitro grease in the Krawfish color.
I'll usually hop it like the usual jig and pig retreive but sometimes they hit it when swimming it back to the boat.
Especially Pueblo smallies.
Because it's small and not so bulky it works when the bite is tough. Larrys like it too.

Hammer-I too like the Bitsy Bug-nice downsized offering. I don't live in the Denver area but BPS sent me a flier and their Bitsy Bugs are gonna be on sale for 99 cents each-can't beat that price.

I use the bisty sometimes for smallies at Pueblo but I prefer to use Eakins jigs. Give it a try.
