This was a very popular color sold only at our old store years ago. These grubz were very popular when used as a swimming grub and really shined when used on active or schooling fish. They were tough to beat. As pictured, they also make a great spinnerbait trailer. Years ago when I was fishing the Bassmaster Trail, Lonnie Stanley, the owner of Stanley Jigs used to come by my boat and trade a handful of jigs for a handful of these Clear Flake Grubz. At that time he said it was one of his favorite spinnerbait trailers.


After selling the store, they were no longer available. Another fellow tournament fisherman, Jerry Hanna, considered it his favorite color in our assortment. He still catches bunches of fish on them. My fishing partner Jeff Barkley and I pretty much made Jerry beg for them. Sorry Jerry.


Before deciding on the new mold, this was another color we produced several thousand of for our personal use and our friends (Jerry included). At some point in the future they will definitely become part of our current assortment.

These Clear Flake Grubz are slightly smaller, may be slightly off color and may have slight webbing, but they definitely still catch a lot of fish. You gotta try some to believe it!

Guides & Grubz 

    Being a fishing guide is one of the toughest things I’ve ever done. Not my words, but words of 3 long time friends whose names you will probably recognize. Al Lindner, Gary Roach and Babe Winkleman. All three started their careers guiding the lakes in Minnesota and all three

went on to become legends in the fishing industry. There’s nothing quite like the stress of taking money from strangers, putting them in your boat and getting everything in place for them to catch fish. Besides the guides fees, there’s often airplane flights, motels, vacation time and more invested in this day. Lots of pressure, but their love of fishing and the smiles on the faces of satisfied people make it all worthwhile.


    Below are 3 friends and local guides from Western PA.  I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Darl Black and Jeff Knapp for years. I’ve known Mark Rose for more than 2 years. A common thread they all have is they all sometimes fish with Galida’s Grubz. They all treat the grub as a lure and presentation that works well at certain times, like any other lure, when conditions are right. I really appreciate their confidence in my grubs.

    I am very confident that if you or your friends are looking to fish with a guide, you will probably have a great trip with any one of them. You might even fish with a Galida’s Grub.

Darl Black

Darl Black and John go back a long way. When John had his tackle shop and fished the national bass tournament circuits, Darl and John fished together quite often. Articles about John and the Galida’s Grubz appeared in magazines such as Bassmaster, Fishing Facts, Pennsylvania Fishing and many others. Darl and his wife Marilyn have been using the grubz for years.


Darl guides on Pymatuning for crappies/bluegills from May to July and Conneaut Lake for Crappies, Bluegills and Pumpkinseeds from mid July to mid September. Per numerous requests he also guides for bass on Pymatuning, Conneaut and Lake Wilhelm.


Darl’s produces an up to the minute Fishing Report for all the popular waters in Northwestern PA. His relationships with a huge following of local anglers help make this possible. Darl can be reached by googling the home page of Blackwolfe Communications. Type go to Fishing with Darl Black Guide Service.

Jeff Knapp

"The Galida's Grubz is the one bait that I always have with me on river guide trips. It produces year-round.  During the spring and fall we slowly jig it along the bottom.  Big river smallies scarf it up, likely thinking it's a crawfish.  During the summer, when bronzebacks are in faster water, thanks to its deep-ribbed body the Grubz excels as a soft swimbait, often putting fish in the boat when the bite's tough.  And late fall through early winter I can count on the Grubz, with its bite-triggering paper-thin tail, to dupe river walleyes.  It's the 12-month bait, and one I'm never without!" - Jeff Knapp


Jeff Knapp is the owner and full time guide of Keystone Connection Guide . Jeff focuses on smallmouth on the free flowing (middle section) of the Allegheny River from early spring till late fall. He also targets walleye on this section as well as the lower (impounded) section. Jeff also guides for various warm water species on various waters such as Kahle, Pymatuning and Keystone Power Dam.


Jeff’s articles have appeared in several local and national magazines. He also has weekly outdoors columns In the Butler Eagle and Indiana Gazette. Jeff has been using Galida’s Grubz as a part of his arsenal for years.

Mark Rose

Mark Rose has been guiding as a part of a nationally known team called Bass on Line. He has been guiding on Lake Erie, Lake Okeechobee and the Florida Everglades for several years. He has repeat customers flying in to these locations from all over the country.  John's relationship with Mark began a couple years ago. While fishing Erie Bay, more than once Mark noticed John and his fishing partner Jeff Barkley catching more than their fair share of large smallmouth. 

Curiosity got the best of him and he asked what lures they were fishing with. When they answered Galida's Grubz, Mark was a quite a bit skeptical. There had to be something more to it, that little grub couldn't be all there was to it. John explained that the grub should only be considered as one tool in a tool box. Jeff tossed Mark a bag or two and

they both went on their way.


Mark eventually tried them with very marginal success. As time went on, Mark again saw John and Jeff catching fish and had to stop to learn more. They eventually gave Mark a few pointers and end result, Mark became quite a grub fisherman.  While guiding, Mark uses most of the popular lures and techniques, but when conditions are right, he often opens his toolbox and reaches for a Galidas Grub. Mark is constantly posting pictures of his smiling customers holding an oversized bass along with a package of Galida's Grubz on Facebook.


Mark usually starts guiding on Lake Erie and Erie Bay some time in April and heads south to Florida around the end of October. Mark can be reached at or calling 724-333-3898.
