Fish: Largemouth Bass

Best Bass Lures?

Post By: fishingaddiction      Posted: 2/3/2012 1:39:02 PM     Points: 0    
I have been really fishing for bass hard over the last two years and would like to know what some of my fellow fisherman's favorite lures are.

Largemouth: Senkos and topwater baits like spooks are my favorites

Smallmouth: Ill usually just take a crankbait that looks like a crawdad and cast over rip rap on dams and such. I usually go with a pretty fast retrieve.

X 2 on the black and blue bitsy bug. It's my favorite year round bait. I like lizards, grubs, and senkos when throwing plastics. For topwater I like buzzbaits and the Ragetail shad.

Tight Lines...zzz

What works for me are 2.5" powerbait minnows and chartreuse spinnerbaits.

4"-6" Senko, trick stick (any type of soft stick really) wacky rigged
White spinner bait
Red or crawdad colored lipless crank

I will NEVER go bass fishing without one of these three and I always carry more than one for those days I like hooking trees

Largies, just a plain lipless crank gets the job done, heavy pressure locations use a silent one.

Smallies, a 1/4 oz chartreuse spinner bait with a single chartreuse willow blade. An old timer told me about this set up early last year. Ended up being the ticket. I caught the most 14 inch plus smallies last year along with my personal best 17 incher

Spotted bass???? it is on my list for this year

I'll hopefully be joining the trophy hunt with cmarbles. Got a dedicated swimbait setup and a growing collection of big baits. I really like hudds. 6 and 8 inch trout patterns and 6 inch blue shad.

Top water pencil poppers. Spinner/ buzz baits, then when you find the fish use a stick bait.

Strike King KVD 1.5 square bill crank, lucky craft staysee 90, and a senko rigged just about any way

The big bait as of late has been the senko.For me has been the jig with a curly tail grub.A tip when using a curly tail grub or soft plastics..Add scent such as Pro-cure.It turns a good soft plastic into a even better bait.

Favorite lure is a topwater anything, nothing beats a topwater bite.

I have yet get into using senkos and such, but have caught most of my bass this year on trout hds and rebal crawdad cranks.
Even caught a few pigs with the hds!

Man, wheres all the spinner bait guys?? My favorite bass lure is a black and yellow H&H single colorado blade spinner bait. It can be slow rolled in the winter and burn the top in the summer to catch the big girls. Also works great on the big crappie.
