Keitech Little Spider
The long fabled, cult classic bass fishing plastic, the Keitech Little Spider, is now back on the market after several years on hiatus. Who knew such a tiny bait would cause such a big stir in the bass fishing world? With secondary market prices often reaching $40 for a single pack of these small plastic grubs, it was only a matter of time before Keitech Lures brought them back to the market. The original popularity of this bait was largely muted by anglers who sought to keep its success a secret, but eventually once the bait went out of production, the scarcity lead to a flat out panic to track them down and most who had a stash kept them to themselves or listed them at online auction sites. The new Keitech Little Spider is offered in a wider selection of colors and has ditched the hard plastic container in favor of a much simpler packaging.
The Little Spider is a soft plastic spider grub featuring a twin-tail grub body with a flared out skirt around the head section of the bait. It's really the ultimate finesse spider jig proving extremely effective for bass all over the country. Constructed from a PVC rubber compound, the Little Spider displays a great deal of buoyancy and stretch that gives it not only a uniquely enticing action, but also increases the bait's durability tremendously. Any time bass are feeding on crayfish, the Little Spider will be a big time producer. If you've ever had bass spit up craws in your livewell, you'll notice they are typically of the smaller variety - not the monstrous size which are easily visible to us. This spider jig will perfectly mimic those meal-sized craws and deliver bites from bass even under the toughest conditions. Smallmouth are especially fond of the Little Spider - the popularity of the bait among anglers fishing bodies of water such as Havasu, Champlain and Tennessee area lakes is unparalleled.
When rigging the Keitech Little Spider, anglers will find the most success when employing equally light tackle and hardware. We suggest fishing the Little Spider on a
Keitech Tungsten Super Football Jig Head or another finesse style ball or football head jig - either one with a light single strand weedguard or one without any type of guard. The Super Football Jig Head is just ideal for the Little Spider. It fits against the plastic body almost seamlessly and offers the ideal combination of small, compact size with a small, sharp hook. Each of the Super Football Jig Heads includes a lightwire, size 2/0 hook that will hook into bass at any depth. Light line is always a good choice when finesse fishing and most anglers utilize 8-10lb test when fishing these ultra finesse plastics. Fish the bait like you would any other jig, but don't be hesitant to impart long pauses into your retrieve - the Little Spider will wiggle and move naturally due to its buoyancy.
We offer the Keitech Little Spider in three sizes: 2" (8pk), 3" (8pk) & 3.5" (5pk).
