A Special Offer you simply can’t pass up!

Till the end of March, our 2 most popular trailer colors, Vivid White and Pearl Chartreuse will be $5.99 or 2/25 packs for $10.00.

This special can be combined with your regular grub order for free freight at $25.00.

Spring is officially a few weeks away, but in parts of the country, spring fishing is going full speed ahead. I’ve been noticing several posts about Chatterbaits and what are the best trailers?


In the past few years more and more folks have switched to Galida’s Grubz as a favorite trailer. The prime reasons are the action of the swimming tail and the fact that they stay up on the hook thus catching more fish.

Galida’s Grubz as Trailers


Through the years, more and more people have switched to  Galida’s Grubz as their favorite trailer for Chatterbaits, Spinnerbaits, Buzzbaits or Alabama Rigs. Fishermen have learned that the tail on our grub has a great swimming action. They’ve also found that our grub stays up on the lure much better than most other brands thus allowing you to catch more fish per trailer.


Our design and the quality of our plastic help to keep it in place whether your lure makes contact with weeds, lilly pads or brush. They even stay in place after a violent strike on your buzz bait or A-Rig. Whatever type of structure you’re targeting, you’re bound to be pleased with the performance of Gailda’s Grubz as a trailer.

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.
