Go to lure

Post by BOB350RX »

MY GO WOULD BE AN ORIGINAL FLOATING RAPALA, EITHER JOINTED, OR NOT, IN BLACK AND GOLD OR SILVER AND GOLD, BUT I HAVE DONE WELL WITH THE ORANGE AND GOLD ALSO,

NEVER DONE REAL WELL WITH MANY CRANK BAITS BUT I DONT FISH THEM THAT OFTEN SO I GUESS ITS NOT A FAIR JUDGEMENT
THIS THING USED TO FLOAT

Go to lure for me is white or chartreuse spinner bait w/grub , follow up missed strikes with Texas rigged worm or grub.
Night fishing, 6 in. broken back jitterbug in coach dog colors.
Never had any luck with a frog....... even a live one.

My go to bait is a texas rigged beaver with a pegged tungsten worm weight, you can flip it, pitch it or punch it. My second choice would be a swim jig with a twister tail. My bad luck lure has been a chatterbait, used to catch fish on it but now its like they all hate it. Keep fishing them frogs guys, they work great around herein the weed mats.

We'll, my first go to bait would be a Texas rigged zoom baby brush hog, preferably watermelon seed or big Texan colors. But my real in desperate need to catch fish go to bait is a 4" red/black ring worm. I have won a bunch of tournaments I that bait alone when the fish would hit nothing else.

My go to bait is a nightcrawler or redworm. You can catch almost any fresh water fish with them. For crappie and bream I wll use a beetle spin. Bass I usually try trick worms first, and for cats I always use liver. If just fishing for anything though its always a squiggly lie worm.

1. Any Rapala.. best 2 are Black/gold X-raps, or a Hot Tiger Jointed/Suspending/Rattling Shad Rap
2. Spoons

Used to have killer luck tossing jigs/3" curltails for walleye, now I can't buy a bite :(
