For Large mouth bass, gotta go with a soft plastic, the senco on an offset hook texas rigged for weedless or wacky rigged. Second would be a spinner in either white or chartruce with colorado blades. Third would be a lipless crank, pick your brand.

For river smallies I like a small jig and a plastic helgermite or even a mister twister. Next would be an inline spinner, I kinda like a Panther Martin or a Mepps is hard to beat. For a body bait a husky jerk or a countdown gets them going.

Barr's Meat Whistle - a fly pattern granted, but its a lot like a jig and pig.
If you don't count flies (which of course you should) - I really have grown to like a discontinued rapala caled the minnow spoon. With a single hook and a willow leaf spinner on the back its awesome.

If I could only pick three....probably tube or worm first, second would be deep diving crank, third would be spinnerbait.....but that just about covers all of 'em huh :huh: ...still use weedless spoons in the pads, jig'n'pig can't be beat early, topwaters work if the timing's right, love the jerkbait for smallies :yes:

Most of the time I throw a white spinner with willow blades. Farm pond or big lake, it usually catches good fish.

For big bass, I use a deep diving crank bait. But I don't seem to have the number of strikes that I do with a spinner, but I get better quality of fish (size and weight) with the crank.

That's my 2 cents and everybody fishes with something different.

i like to use a white or chartreuse spinnerbait...then a lipless crankbait...once i catch one on those then i will go to the soft plastic to cover the area a little more thorough...i am just to impatient to fish with soft plastics all the time...

The best lure in the world will be the one YOU have enough confidence in to keep tied on!

For me it's a jig and craw.

I love a 5 or 6 inch senko either yamamoto or kinami, rigged weightless with a 3/0 hook, I also love tripple blades buzzbaits and baby 1 minus's.

I like Senco-like baits, they've worked really well for me for the past 2 years. I've recently discovered another lure that seemed to do very well my first time using it, but I'm not going to share that with you :biggrin:

6'' stik-o-worm/senko with just a plain hook. Works great under docks and weeds.

I've got to say Senco, just for the fact that it produces more fish in all different kind of wheather patterns. Early spring through late fall the senco will come through in the clutch. Very versital too.

pig in jig(i tie my own) my go to color is black with red thread and a blk trailer on 17 lb mono. caught a 7 lb bass this yr in 3 ft of water when it was 100 degrees, can't beat it, a little trick i learned was to skip a 3/8s or 1/2 oz jig w/ trailer under a low boat dock, almost every cast i catch one.
