Okay, I've noticed my craw jig trailer post getting hits from people searching for how to actually add a trailer to a jig hook. You can either slide the plastic craw trailer on the way I did in that post so the body and arms sit low or rig as pictured below. I tend to run the hook up through the middle of the body (pic #2) so the trailer sits on the bend of the hook higher up and so that it hangs there giving off a little more action. You can also rig a plain round head jig with the trailer Texsposed. If your trailer is a good size, you can even rig it at an angle so the claws stick up (pic #3). I do that with my LFT Pig Claws. What kind of trailer to use is a whole new issue and open to some debate. I like Paca Chunks and Lake Fork Pig Claws for regular jigs and V&M Baby V Chunks for finesse jigs. Pork trailers are beyond my realm of knowledge at this point and there are tips pork enthusiasts can key in on that I cannot begin to explain.
