    I don't use many soft blastics but I'd say that I'm a fan of the worm. Seems like anything will eat it in any environment.

    havent bass fished in quite a while, but when i did my soft plastics of choice were either culprit or gilraker worms. 3 inch tube baits worked good too.

    if i would say anything on my favorite soft plastic bait it would be a six inch worm on a texas rig brown with blue stripes. depending on the day maybe drop shooting it isnt a bad idea at all. also rattle traps work very very well in my book for hard plastics!

    Joe..my confidence bait the past couple seasons has been the moccasin/blue metal flake Culprit worm. But it seems the best baits usually end up obsolete or no longer made. I've been looking for the ol' Salt Craws that Wally World carried a few years back. There are a lot of craws out there, but I liked those the best, particularly brown/blue metal flake or green flake. Can't find them anywhere anymore, and they were killer on postspawn bass holding in the 12-16 ft. brushpiles out on points or in cove mouths. I've got a lot of old worms from years past, and sometimes it's fun to pull out one just to show them something they haven't seen in a long while. Sometime it works, sometimes not...but it always brings back memories of the goodn's that I caught using them. (Blueberry jellyworms, or the old style Centipedes that looked like centipedes just to name a couple). Black grape Mr. Twisters were hot for a number of years, and I still catch one on them now and again. The fish get hot on a certain bait for a season or two, then show a preference for something new. I guess that's how I ended up with this duffel bag full of plastics. Hmmm... I'm getting the urge to go shopping for worms again.:)

    For a worm I use the 6" Roboworm in the color of "Arons Magic".
    My next choice of bait is the Senko in clear with salt and pepper flake. Rigged on a 4/0 hook weightless.

    I have caught hundreds of spawning largemouths(and then immediately released them of course) on tubes.

    I have also caught a lot of hefty river/ creek smallies on a tube jig fished to immitate a crayfish in the spring and summer, or a baitfish in the fall.

    i have to agree with slabmaster, i forgot to mention the yamamoto hula grub i've caught so many fish on a smoke colored hula grub that i lost count . it's deadly texas rigged or on a jig head . i like small weight so it falls slow and flutters. good luck

    My most productive is a carolina rigged watermelon or green pumpkin baby brush hog with the tip of the tails dipped in chartreuse garlic die.
