What is a Swim Grub?

Simply put; this isn't your grandfather's "grub". The Swim Grub incorporates aspects from 2 of our favorite lures: the old school curly-tail and the West Coast style saltwater swimbait.

One of the things that sets it apart from your plain old vanilla curly tail is that we use a one piece top pour mold rather than use a two piece injection molding process. This gives us the flexibility to laminate the body of the lure however we want to. We can emulate the lateral line of a bait fish or the roe sack of a female ghost shrimp. The average curly tail will only have separate colors in the body and tail or split straight down the middle.

Another thing that makes the Swim Grub stand out is that the body isn't round. It's designed to give a more fish like profile in the water rather than emulate a small insect larvae.
