One of my favorite bass baits over the years has been the Yamamoto Double Tail Hula Grub. I won several tournaments out West in the late 80s and early 90s on them on lakes like Roosevelt, Mead and Mohave. I scored big with the Hula Grub early on in my BASS career, posting several top 10 finishes on it at places like Grand Lake, Lake of the Ozarks, and Table Rock. I even weighed in several key bass on it in my first BASS win in 1993, on the Potomac River of all places! Needless to say, I had a lot of confidence in Hula Grubs early in my career, and it has been a ‘go to’ bait of mine throughout my 25 year career as a pro. The Yamamoto Hula Grub still works great today. In March 2013, I had a top 20 finish at Smith Lake, AL in an FLW Tour event, and weighed nearly all my fish on the Hula Grub.
