What is your favorite White Bass lure?

Post By: FastLayne      Posted: 9/3/2019 1:09:51 PM     Points: 4670    
I'd like to hear from you on what your favorite White Bass Lure is.
My favorite two lures for White Bass are:

1.) a ShadRap in shad color if the water is clear, or a color with some chartreuse if the water is dark colored.

2) a 1/8 ounce Jighead with either a shad colored or just plain white Mister Twister single tail, either 2 1/2 inches or 3 inches long.

What are your favorite lures to catch White Bass ?

I would say a 2 to 3 inch white swim bait is always a great choice. Woolly bugger have worked well for them too. They differently go crazy over a good lipless crank bait as well.

It's not necessarily the most productive lure all around but, when it's windy, I enjoy throwing a number 6 Rapala X-Rap. Fish it aggressively and expect hard strikes. I have fished a variety of lures over the years: grubs, small plastic swimbaits, ripless crankbaits, tube jigs, marabou and feather jigs, Kastmasters, spoons, small crankbaits... They all work, but jerkbaits fished aggressively + a hard take from white bass is the most fun.
