What the heck is a "Huddle Bug"?

Huddleston Deluxe - Huddle Bugs





The Huddleston Deluxe Huddle Bugs are the gold standard for realistic crawfish baits on the market today. Ken Huddleston took painstaking efforts to ensure that each bait was anatomically correct and had each little detail. The Huddle Bugs are pre-rigged with weight to allow you to throw them in a very different way than conventional crawfish plastics. Each bait has an eyelet on its wire harness that allows for hooking through it and out between the eyes. With the weight located in the tail of the crawfish you can throw these similar to a Yamamoto Fat Ika or Jackall Cover Craw. Throw the Huddle Bug at cover and the weights make the bait fall away from you and into the cover or under the overhang. Even if you have an open spool, most plastics will fall either next to or a bit away from cover. With the Huddle Bug you are in the strike zone on every cast. You can still drag these baits like you would any other crawfish imitation but at any moment you have the option to slide one back into the living room of a hungry bass!

These baits work awesome on the river......but dont tell anyone

tackle wharehouse has them without the weights.
cheaper that way. rig em on a jig head or a weighted hook.
those belly weights are bull chit.

I would assume you could rig them just like any other craw bait, right?

Weighted worm hooks work best for me.
Then just drag them on the bottom.

The rigged version, like the one in the above picture is nose hooked with either a standard size 6 bait hook or I use a Red Daiichi Octopus Hook myself. When rigged this way they fall away from you due to the placement of the weights. Then you crawl them forward, like a regular crawfish walks.

They also have a non rigged version that you can use as a jig trailer or tail hook and split shot them.

A few tricks that I like to do are insert a small glass rattle, put crawfish attractant on them and inject some air into the claws so they stand up in a defensive posture.

BTW, Yes, they do work.

Huddleston also makes a shaky head just for the huddlebug. Tacklegiant in Tucson will have the huddle bug and shaky head in stock this week.

Kind of pricey when there are lots of good Crawfish imitators out there.
