Default Simple is a simple does

Mods do work and even the usual unmodified lures have their place when using various techniques and retrieves.

I post about the Gary Y Kut Tail worm basically using a light jighead and proper hook size to exit the lure in the right place. The exposed hook (not T-rigged) can catch fish of all kinds from the surface to any depth below it. But here is one I discovered by accident after a pickerel bit off the tail of a twister tail grub using only the body.

The action using a combination of rod tip twitch and slight reel handle turns makes the lure dart/ glide/ and drop slowly.

I fashioned a few from the front part of other soft plastics i took from molds.

Chartreuse and black is another:

BTW, I do believe some colors do well in most waters - perch colors especially: chartreuse/black and orange. Don't know why but have more confidence in soft plastics using that color combo.

They caught everything in 4 different lakes including some decent bass, pickerel and a load of panfish.

If you got some curl tail grubs lying around, remove the tail and rig on 1/24 or 1/16 oz ball heads and see how they move using the above retrieve. Even a child can fish on it even using a float.

Who knew a do-nothing lure with no tail would be able to catch fish with a unique action such as this?!

BTW, color choice is one I adhere to for different lures - including soft plastics. As you've noticed from the examples, yellow perch colors is one of my confidence colors: chartreuse/black and orange. (Dye use to color those above.)
