Default Keep grubs and trailer from sliding down

The barbs on jigs and spinnerbaits fail to hold a soft plastic lures or trailers.

You can buy plastic coated wire for making floral arrangements at Walmart or any place that has crafts.

Wrap the wire once around the line tie of the jig. After using pointed nose pliers to pull the wire tight, snip one end close and then press it tight. Make an L shape of the long end that's left, snip to the proper width and swing into the soft plastic making it stay up close to the lead.


Now when I order jig heads, they don't have to have a barb (which I prefer because it does less damage to grub or trailer). (In fact if I don't need the gram or two of weight and I prefer to cut it off with wire cutters.)

Note: make sure you use stainless steel safety wire or plastic coated floral arrangement wire. Either wire can be changed easily if needed, but shouldn't rust.

Grub lock in position:

....and again as a trailer lock:

Note: I use strap zip ties to attach skirts. Fish could care less.!!
