    I know that a single hook Tady TLC (especially white color) with a squid pinned on the hook can hammer White Sea Bass if worked along the bottom like you would a plastic worm for freshwater largemouth bass fishing.

    I am wondering if anyone has experimented with using plastic trailers on other type "iron" jigs. It seems like Scampi-type or squid-type plastics "might" just add "something" to these lures. I would guess that you could retrieve the irons faster with the trailer while still retaining the action.

    Aldo, how about adding a trailer spinner (like on a wahoo bomb) to the candy-bar type jig?

    Every thing is worth a try now and then. You just never know what they will hit on. Never done it myself but I have made up some really whacky set ups just to see if it works.
