How to Use the Double Tail Grub Power Bait

How to Use the Double Tail Grub Power Bait
It is no secret that once the "bait monkey" jumps on your back, you and your wallet are in trouble. Well, get ready to hand over a few more bills as you purchase the Berkley Power Bait double tail grub. Power Bait is a line of baits from Berkley that utilizes a powerful fish attracting scent that is actually part of the bait. Combine this with the tantalizing action of a double tail on a grub body and hang on folks, we are going fishing.


Difficulty: Easy

Things You’ll Need:
  • Jig head hook
  • Berkley Power Bait double tail grub
  • Monofilament or similar fishing line
Step 1
Attach the jig head hook to the monofilament or similar fishing line with an improved clinch knot. Form the knot by passing the free, or tag end, of the line through the eye of the jig. There should be 3 to 4 inches of line extending past the eye of the jig.
Step 2
Wrap the tag end of the line around the main line for six to seven turns. Begin forming the turns near the eye of the jig and work up the line. Pass the tag end down and through the small loop formed with the line just above the eye of the hook.
Step 3
Pull the line through, but do not tighten. Pass the tag end through the larger loop formed alongside the knot. Moisten the knot, pull tight and trim excess tag end line with snips.
Step 4
Attach the grub to the jig by inserting the point of the jig hook into the nose of the bait. Push the hook through the bait for an inch or so. Turn the hook downward and push out through the belly of the double grub tail. Arrange the bait on the jig so that it lies flat and is not bent or kinked on the hook.
Step 5
Cast the jig tail to the edge of cover, along structure and other areas where game fish may be suspended. Use a steady and slow retrieve and allow the double paddle action of the lure to work. A fast retrieve will prevent the bait from performing as designed. Vary the action by stopping the retrieve, allow the bait to settle, jig up and down and resume the slow retrieve.
