So most of us have some, what is YOUR favorite Shooter jig color? Mine is Texas Craw, for sure.

Crawdad & Robs Craw are best for Murray....when I'm at Wateree I'll fish both and the Texas Craw...lately at Wylie I've done well with the Black/Brown/Purple with a Black Chunk...in May I smackedum good with a Shellcracker/Green Pumpkin chunk swimming around docks...all these except the Tx Craw are jam up at Santee.

no dought... robs'craw or carolina mocason now using one that is green pumpkin, has a few strands on chart/black its worked well recently on the yadkin chain.
@ THINGS I wish was diff on the shooter jig
1. wish the came with and with out rattle chamber
2.the eyelet direction Wish it was cross ways instead of straight up.
Let me sai, Ive been using Shooter jigs for long time even with ththis eye position I don't miss too many... I do take a file and redress the hook LIGHTLY, use 20lb floro line and a 7ft hm jig rod. The hook usually finds the side of the mouth most often compared to other jigs where Ive seen more fish hooked threw the top of the mouth when using a jig with sidways eyelet....just my opinion...

How do you guys put the trailer on the jig? Do you tip it with the trailer, or do you thread it on?

What are the benefits to each way of adding the trailer? Wanting all the expertise from you guys I can get.

Do you get enough action with the trailer threaded on?

Check out 5th Place Ronnie Watts...

I've always put the hook through the chunk and let it hang...simple fact that everybody I know that does this catches a lot of fish on a jig...the ones I know that thread the chunk on the jig don't seem to do as good...I'm sure there is more action with the chunk hanging by the hook...

Tipped on makes more sense from an action standpoint. I just don't see it threaded on having much action at all, except maybe on the fall.

Appreciate the info.

almost always tiphook a zoom super chunk,1/2 jig
2 hints =
1- cut super chunk in the middle of the legs up into the fat chunk, makes it wiggle more when you swim it back,
2- take tooth pick push it thru the tip of the chunk then put the hook thru behind the tooth pick clip off exccess t-pock this keeps the chunk on hook when skipping docks.
only time i thread the chunk up the hook is during bed fishing or wanting a smaller profile bait. (super clear water)
Have you seen the crawfish this summer----their 5 ins long and super big brown/greenish/little orange on claws and tails-----MAGNUM ROB'S CRAW..live well was full last weekend.
