OK, so everyone knows what jwkelley51 is asking about.

First, the BIFFLE BUG.
It's a soft plastic creature or Beaver Style Bait.



The hardhead




Put together you get:


Here's Tommy Biffle explaining it himself.

And here's where to get them......and read the product description under the 'Biffle Bug'...it's ACTUALLY a very unique 'Beaver Style Bait'.

Hardhead ....read product description
https://www.outdoorproshop.com/Gene-Larew-Biffle-Hardhead-Jig-p/genelarew-bifflehardhead.htm

OK, where and how I'VE used them.....with the hardhead jig.
I got them like 5 years ago specifically for fishing for Smallies on a River that had basically a hard bottom, packed dirt and gravel with some larger rocks boulders thrown into the mix.
Moving current so I wanted/used the 5/16 oz 4/0 hook size. (have a size larger 1OZ and smaller 3/16th oz)
Worked great and had good success with it.
Smallies loved it.

After the original supply of the plastics ran out (I bought as a package deal) I used craw plastics as a trailer, basically because I don't flip much and as a rule don't use a lot of Beaver Style Baits.

As with anything in Bass Fishing, after Larew and Biffle had success selling the bait......the knockoffs and copies flooded the market.
So now you can get a swinging football style jig from a lot of places and manufactures and beavers style plastics which allow rattle insertion and or scent insertion from a few.
(I don't use rattles so never tried it...tried using scent.....didn't hurt but really didn't help noticeably more...but again, I was fishing moving current and rivers and streams/creeks.

Now the directly answer the original post........yes, before you give up on the hardhead, try different trailers AND presentations!!!!

Personally 'floating style craws' like Zmann's and such would be the most idealetic trailer trade off .

AND X-Zone's Muscule Back Craws ARE A PERFECT MATCH FOR THE HARDHEAD!!!!!!!
Their 'claws float up' and with a swinging jig head the action of this trailer should be UNREAL!

And a more Traditional Beaver Style....BUT WITH FLOATING APPENDAGES and probably would work even BETTER than a Biffle Bug!!!!
Adrenaline Bug
https://www.xzonelures.com/site/shop/detail/pro-series-adrenaline-bug-fishing-lures

Hope this helps those of you who weren't familar with the bait and more IMPORTANTLY.....
jwkelley51's question.

It actually CAN be a good search bait in/with the right conditions.
You can fish it ANYWHERE you'd use a Carolina Rig (which many use as a search bait technique) and I actually CASTED and retrieved it on hard bottom waters....with some pauses intermingled in constantly  having the jig on the move.

Could even try it as a Football Style Swim Jig when vegetation isn't your challenge BUT rocks/boulders are.

Tossed over a point bringing it UP one side and DOWN the other side, searching for fish could also work well. (similar to how A LOT of anglers use a Carolina Rig.....but the hardhead is a lot simplier to use/tie up than a Carolina Rig and CASTS much easier.

Again, just some ideas and thoughts from a guy who's not the 'Sharpest Hook' in the Tackle Box!  ;) :)

Thans to my strike of the other day, I did get a couple days off.  i did do some minor stuff but nothing special.  Today however I had to pick up some of those tasks that I managed to delay.  Just finished trimming all the the shrubs in the back yard and not the trimming and pruning tasks are all done for a while.  I mowed the lawn yesterday in an effort to beat the rain this weekend.  I am sure that a trip to the recycle center is soon to follow and I guess that is ok as long as no other tasks are invented.

Expecting a fed ex shipment today for a few fishing goodies.  I have been needing some hooks so I placed an order rather than endure a trip to bass pro.  Also bought a spool of hi viz power pro because of the holiday sale even though I don't need it now I will a bit later so might as well save a couple bucks while I was in the ordering mood.  Very disappointed that I had to order from a source other than Monster but it seems like I have not been able to get what I wanted from Monster.  They seem to be out of stock on a lot of stuff and as you might know they don't do back orders.

The neighborhood seems to be decorated with American Flags on this memorial day weekend.  Really nice to see and makes me proud.  I can't help but salute our flag flying proudly on the side of the garage.  Too bad some folks won't accept just how beautiful and meaningful it truly is but I guess that is another story for another time.  I am sure many of you know exactly what I mean.

What a week. Feel like I didnít have a break all week long. Started like 3 new sets of house plans and finalized 4 more all while making changes to many others. Glad that I can kick back and relax with family today.

Tried to walk a little this morning as I do every morning but, pulled something in my calf muscle and had to stop.
