The Grubby Slasher is a combination of the 8 inch stubby crank and the Kalins Magambo magnum grub tail. It was designed with both casting and trolling in mind. Western Red Cedar is the base wood for the body. We remove all but 6 of the ribs in the tail which still measures 7 inches long making the bait come in around 12 inches in total length. The entire tail is glued in place with Pros Soft Plastic glue. This lure runs exceptionally well in the 3 to 5 mph range but really excels on the surface twitched and slow cranked as it makes a nice wake from that huge tail.
