Trout like this grub’s soft-plastic body with its slick, life-like appearance and tantalizing marabou tail enhances the display.

A good choice for larger trout, the Rogue offers lots of flash and erratic action, along with the ability to sit motionless—a common strike-triggering tactic. The bait’s nearly neutral buoyancy enables it to hold its position when paused and then dart away with the next twitch. Equipped with internal noisemakers, this Rogue is a good choice for cold or clear water.
