Many of the American Outdoor Writers staying in Lewiston, NY took advantage of the excellent smallmouth bass fishing in the Lower Niagara River.
While most anglers either dragged tube-jigs along the bottom, or minnow-grubs, our boat experimented with the Lunker City Grubster. The 2.75″ size grub looks just like a small goby and the small paddle tail has a “flickering” action no matter if it’s dropping, being pulled along the bottom, or reeled in. We fished it on medium-action Rapala R-Type & Rapala Concept Ti spinning outfits loaded with 20 lb. Sufix832 braid and Sufix Fluorocarbon leaders.
It’s a tantalizing action that smallmouth can’t resist. We ended up landing more bass on the Grubster than on tubes. If you enjoy fishing plastic grubs for a variety of fish, you should give the Lunker City Grubster a try!
