Smallmouth soft baits

Postby FowlOffspring » Sun Aug 04, 2013 8:55 pm

For those of you guys that fish Smallmouth, what are some soft plastic baits that you would recommend for flipping and the like? I have one one color of tubes and one color of beaver baits. The rest are ribbon tail worms and skirted twin tail grubs.

They ALL work........ just get them down and "Walk the Dog".

Put some scent on them if you have to..........

Some times lots of noise works , some times you got to be very quiet and sneaky !
Depends on their mood and water conditions and pressure in the area.

Big, small, fast, slow, light, dark, jig, pig, Texas, Carolina or drop shot..............
good luck.

I like to use Gary Yamanotto senkos. i Texas rig them and fish them slow off the bottom. the bass love them with the slow fall they make.

My favorite is a 1/32 chartreuse jig head with a Bobby Garland 2.5" Strollr in the Shiny Hiney color , 4 pound test line on a St Croix 5.5 premium UL rod with Shamano Stradic reel.

You already said tubes, so:

4" grubs (white, chartreuse, green pumpkin).

Zoom finesse worms (drop shot or shakey head)

small craw trailers on bass jigs (in clear water, I trim the skirt and use heavier jig)

Zoom flukes, senkos--deadly fished weightless

football jigs with spider grubs.
