    I'm by no means the Bill Dance of bass fishing, but I can tell you what has worked very well for me over the years for bass. My bread and butter lures have been a 1/4 oz. white spinnerbait with a single silver colorado blade and a tequila sunrise 8 inch plastic work texas rigged with a 1/4 oz. bullet weight. :big_smile:

    Don't know! If I am throwing lures it for Speckled Trout or Red Drum at the Coast. But haven't done that in a long time either. I fish with my boys now 5 & 7 they won't sit there and throw them lures yet. So catfishing is fun and a lot of action and they're mighty tasty too. :wink: That keeps them interested and they always want to go fishing with daddy. Gives Momma a break from the boys too so it's extra brownie points for me..:tounge_out:

    I like the zara spook or a hula popper with a hog tralier but the best action i ever had was with a 8 inch black weedless snake ..This thing would get brutal hit's from any fish:big_smile: still have it but won;t fish it anymore lol cause i can't find a replacement :sad2:

    Depends on the water color, water conditions, location and if heavily vegetated. I cover the whole spectrum of lures. The lure that has caught me the most fish and made me the most money is the Mann1-. In the color of fire shad. I also love to use frogs and Pop Rs.

    Big 'Dalton Special' in shad color with silver flake; either as is, or rigged with a white popper behind.

    I like to use my rapala minnow in ponds along the coast,usually only brings in 1-2 pounders though.For the most part I've had my best luck with a purple texas rig worm.I mostly fish local ponds though.Rarely ever big lakes and always from the shore.

    I love to fish topwater so I'd have to say that a swimming frog and a buzzbait are my favorite. However, I really used to like a Zipper Worm in Witches Tit (I know kinda weird name for a color:eek:oooh:). Caught a bunch of bass on that back home when I was fishing the big lakes but in the coastal rivers it's a frog or buzz. However, if they aren't liking that I'll throw a jerkbait or rarely a spinnerbait.

    I'm not a bass master by any stretch of the imagination, but I have done my share. The most productive bait for me, in a variety if conditions, is the Bass Stopper in natural brown. Bass can't resist it, and I've caught crappie, walley, channel cats, and perch on them too. Berkley Power Worms come in close second, but the hook-up ratio drops when fish hit the tail, and don't get hooked. Bass Stoppers have a hook in the tail.

    I've caught soem really nice Lm bass on nightcrawlers while fishing for baitfish, 3-4 pounders,,, kinda fun, but, when actually bass fishing, a simple Kastmaster 3/8 silver/chrome lure is a lot of fun for me..

    Hands Down - The Best Bass Lure for me here in the Delta has been - The Senko Worm - (fished Weightless) - I have a kit, so all that I have to do is find the color that they want for that day (or night), and "its on". :0a23:
