G-Grub® Details

View Catalog PDF


Since the introduction of the Curly Tail® lure by Mister Twister®, the Curly Tail® grub has become a tackle box staple. Mister Twister® G-Grub® takes the Curly Tail® concept to the next level. It's a Curly Tail® with a leech design, and the results offer a very unique swimming action. Rather than restricting the swimming action to the tail, the G-Grub® incorporates fins from tip to the tail. These fins produce a realistic full-scale swimming profile, making the G-Grub® the perfect imitator of a swimming leech, or active shiner.   
"I was so impressed with how the G-Grub® worked on walleyes, that I could hardly wait for the chance to fish bass with it. The action and unique shape it forms in the water are really different than anything else I've seen." - Mike Sheldon, Mepps President

There are several reasons you should be fishing the G-Grub®…

  • The G-Grub® is the perfect combination of two excellent live baits… leech and shiner
  • Innovative fins provide tip to tail swimming action
  • Extreme vibration and rattle chamber at tail
  • Top or bottom rigging… same great action with minimal speed
  • Versatile for stop and go, vertical jigging, or normal retrieve
  • The first “twin fin” design using the combination of a grub body and a leech profile

All G-Grubs® have a natural swimming action. The combined
images (above) show the action of the G-Grub® from both
top and bottom as it is pulled through the water. Jigging
also causes the fins to flare.

Rigging the G-Grub®

For largemouth and smallmouth bass or walleye, rig a 3-inch G-Grub® with a 1/8 or 1/4 oz. jighead. It can be rigged with hook point coming out in the middle of the fins or on the opposite side, either way, it produces the same fabulous fish-attracting action. The 4-inch G-Grub® can be rigged with a 1/4 or 3/8 oz. jighead. Again, there is no wrong way to rig the G-Grub®… fins up or down, either way it produces great action.

G-Grubs® can also be used as either floating or sinking harness rigs while trolling or back-trolling for walleyes. Walking sinkers make perfect back-trolling rigs.

Both the 3-inch and 4-inch G-Grub® make an ideal spinner bait trailer for big bass and trophy walleye.

Want sound? Sight and sound are essential for attracting and catching fish. The G-Grub®'s tail has a built in rattle chamber in its tail to accept rattle beads. These are available at almost any tackle store. The bead also adds weight to the tail. Most of the time adding weight to a soft plastic lure will impair hurt its action, but not the G-Grub®. In fact, adding rattle actually enhances the performance of this grub.

Mister Twister G grubs worked very good this fall . Fished very slow of the rocky bottom produced some hogs. Color selection was green and black I added white to the tail to make it more flawless and yes indeed it worked like a charm. I would recommend this lure to any new angler fishing for walleye it's a no brainer.
Reviewer:Ron Kolde (Bear Lake, Espanola, Ontario, Canada)
Fish Caught:Bass, Smallmouth
I fished in eastern Ontario the past week, The 4" black G-grub was great for pike on most lakes we fished. The G-grub color that brought nearly smallmouth bass to the boat was the pumpkin pepper 3" or 4", I have never had a better day of smallie fishing ever! I ran out of these lures and any other plastic bait I could find did only OK, Needless to say, many more pumpkin pepper G-grubs on order!

Fish Caught:Walleye
On a day where we caught two walleye, I caught one of them on the white 3''G-Grub with a spinner. I will keep using them because they look extremely good and have a great action in the water. I will keep testing a few more times, couldnt be a better price either if you get the discontinued colors.

Thank You, So very much for bringing back this awesome lure which is like my old stand by lure the Curly Tail Meeny. I've prayed for the day that it would reappear again. This has to be the only plastic lure that will out fish any other plastic anywhere on the market !!!! This time I will stock up so that I will never run out again. It will catch any species out there.

I bought the Black G Grub a few months ago.I decided it was time to finally break it out and see how it would work. My very first time using it was on the river bank. I hooked up with a 30" northern. Thanks for the Mister Twisters and the G Grub .. they are in all of my tackle boxes ... jim

Fish Caught:Bass, Largemouth
Six lb. largemouth using the 3in.clear/sparkles (halographic) g-grub. Fished by bouncing it along the bottom.
Reviewer:Robert Pet (Susquehanna River, Maryland)
Fish Caught:Bass, Largemouth
Finally someone has brought back the Mr. Mean lure. I have had fantastic fishing days with the blue and chartruese G-Grub on the Potomac, Susquehanna, as small lake impoundment. I would like to know if you will be adding the silver coating on one side of the tail like the Mr. Mean lure. The little bit of flash resulted in hellacious hits on the initial drop when I used it years ago.

Fish Caught:Walleye
Incredible! Trying several hours to catch fish without any bite and changed the lure to Mr. Twister G-Grub and bang! 2 Walleyes in 5 Minutes on 2inch blue flake. My favorite lure! Try it!

Fish Caught:Musky
Today I caught a musky with a 3 inch Pumpkin/Orange & Black Flake (Crawfish color) off a wooden bridge. Good Bait!!!!
Reviewer:Mike Mulderick (Dorchester County Private Pond, Maryland, Maryland)
Fish Caught:Crappie (Black) - Crappie (White)
I have used this lure plenty of times and always had luck in many depths from shallows, to letting it sink to bottom. I bought the 2inch Mister Twister chartreuse G-Grub lure and when casting it into open water steady retrieve one fish nailed it. It was a good fight and the fish was around 2 pounds was a heavy fish. Recently I was fishing along an edge where this is a 2 foot bank that just drops straight down. I casted along the shoreline and let the lure sink and I started reeling. I felt the fish start biting so after it started taking out the line I set the hook. The fish put up a good fight at the beginning but I was sure it was a bass until I pulled it out of the water. It measured in at 16 inches. I cant wait to try these in the winter when crappie fishing starts.

Caught a 22" walleye, in about 10 minutes when casting into a small pool.
Reviewer:Jospeh (Frankfurt Marina, Frankfurt , New York)
Fish Caught:Walleye
Other soft plactics are obsolete to mister twister. I have used everyone. This new G-Grub is in a whole league of its own. It is THE BEST walleye plastic out there. Silktreuse is the most productive G-Grub in my experience. But there is many other fine colors to choose from. Fine colors that work and produce and thats all real fishermen want.
Fish Caught:Bass, Largemouth
I ordered the G-Grub in a couple different colors. Well the day the order came in I had to get out and give them a try. I tied on the silktreuse colored one and the second cast "BAM" a nice 2lb largemouth and then about ten minutes later "BAM" another nice 3-4lb largmouth. I must say that I love the action on this bait. Another great job by the staff at Mister Twister.

Fish Caught:Bass, Rock - Bass, White
It is the best Grub I have ever used.
Reviewer:Rich (Monroe County, New York)
Phenominal, period.
I gave a pack of pearl colored baits to a friend before he went to Florida, he fished from the pier every day. He told me he crushed the fish, all kinds of species. He and I fished the bait in the late fall and caught a ton of bass and a few pike. Great profile, a slow fall, good vibration.
Reviewer:Jeff Barns (South Carolina, South Carolina)
This is a wicked little grub! Catching fish is as fun as it is to watch these babies move thru the water! I use them on a jig head 1/8 oz 3/0 hook on a spinner with a 2 blade. Largemouth Bass, warmouth and even a 1 1/4 pound crappie sucked these sweet morsels up. Or just putting them on a jig head and casting it out with a yo yo retreat or just burning it thru shallow waters works well. Or Texas rigged with a MR TWISTER KEEPER hook with or without the weight as a jerk bait works well.

Now if MR TWISTER could make a few with two colors it would be great. Like a solid black color on the bottom or body and white on the ripple part of it or fin part of it. Or make some like white and black dot like the 3" grubs....
Reviewer:John (, Louisiana)
Fish Caught:Bass, Smallmouth - Walleye
The G Grub was fished late last year at Broken Bow OK. This is deep pool lake with major drop offs. Fishing rocky side of drop offs, using G Grub and a carolina rig, the lure proved deadly for Largemouth, Smallmouth, and Walleye. Excellent vibration and action....looks like a combination between a grub and a leech. Great new design for a proven old winner.
Reviewer:Carl (PA, Pennsylvania)
Fish Caught:Walleye
Yeah, this is very simular to the mister mean! A great Jig for walleye! Thanks alot and keep new body types coming!!
Reviewer:Rich Cal (Rochester, New York)
Fish Caught:Bass, Largemouth
I fished this bait on Thanksgiving Day and we caught the fire out of the largemouth! (Yes, I fished Thanksgiving Day). Rig it the same way as a regular grub. The cool thing is that the fin on the back made the bait a little more weedless than the average grub. We threw it on a 1/8 and 1/16 (long shank) jighead and dragged it slowly. Green hue and also black.
Reviewer:Chuck (Chicago, Illinois)
This looks like a modified Mr. Mean plastic that was carried by Cabela's year ago and made by Mister. Twister. It is one of the best producing lures I've ever used and I can't thank you enough for reintroducing it in this form.
