The Cabin Creek Express Bug is a perfect bulky jig trailer that gives the appearance of a big meal. It’s really difficult for a bass to resist on the back of a jig being dragged along the bottom or flipped around cover. Try pairing similar colors. Brown jig with a brown or green pumpkin trailer. If you aren’t getting bit, try using contrasting colors. Some anglers swear by a brown jig with a black or blue/black trailer.
“This beaver style bait is excellent for punch rigging. Make sure to have a rod big enough to handle this beefy setup. On 50-65 pound test braided line, run a bobber stop and a 3/4- 2 ounce weight, depending on how think the cover is. Rig up on a stout, heavy duty straight shank flipping hook. This basic punching rig, is one of the most popular ways to get fish that can’t be caught on any other technique.”
