Question Favorite lure list

In order from most thrown to least.
1. Spybait
2. Ned Rig/Wacky Rig
4. Square Bill
5. Deep diving crank (20ft)
6. Shakey head
7. Spoons
8. Buzzbait
9. Spinner bait

Number 1 to 5 probably 90% of the time. What's your thrown list?

Zoom trick worm, either weightless/floating or Carolina rigged.
4" Zoom lizard, Carolina rigged
3" curlytail grub on a 1/4 oz. jighead
Zoom fluke, weightless
Floating Rapala or Rattlin' Rogue or Yo-Zuri jerkbait
Shad Rap or Bandit or Norman crankbait
Cordell Spot or Rat-L-Trap
Hopkins Shorty spoon

Zoom lizard. (pumpkin seed and watermelon)

Zoom or Culprit worms. (all colors)

In line heavy spinner. (Blue Fox, mostly)

Lip-less cranks. (Hot Spot or Rattle Trap, same thing)

Any Buzz Bait
(I like Strike King, yeah, you could spend more money but why)

Jitter Bug. Sputter Fuss. Anything Arbogast. (not cheap)

Rebel, most all of them. I love "Creek Hoppers".

I could go on and on. Have a bunch of just about everything.
Not short on fresh or saltwater tackle.

I use the "rule": "Dark bait, dark days". Light bait, light days.

You know, I've thrown jig and pigs until my arm about fell off over the years, and I have caught a grand total of one bass on one. And it was out of a farm pond. I have never caught a fish on a chatterbait, either.

Man I am with You! I had a number of years of frustration with jigs. Funny story how I learned them.

I had some bad back issues for a couple months, and I really couldn't move or work a moving bait. So I started flipping jigs, and did really well once I slowed down about 1000%.

The only reason I slowed down was because I couldn't access much water. It blew my mind a bass would stare at a motionless jig for 30 seconds THEN eat it.

I pump my jigs and count to 10 to 15 before I even shake em. After I started doing that I started catching on jigs.

I agree with many of you. I've caught two bass on jigs. My second best 8lb 14oz in a pond and a 2lb spot on Logan Martin. I try to fish them frequently but it's hard having only caught TWO fish in my life on them. What's up with these things?

Not a numbers bait, that's why most people don't like to fish them. You might have a day when there's a hot numbers jig bite but it's not the norm. It takes a lot of focus dealing with maintaining contact with your jig as well as bite detection. They are more versatile than people give them credit for, there's no set rule on how to fish them. Deep, shallow, fast, slow, dragged, hopped, stroked, heavy cover, no cover, flipped, skipped, bomb casted. With a lot of confidence and patience they consistently catch big bass, more so than I can say for any other bait.

Good advice here.

For a fish that is often thought of as being an aggressive biter, they can be surprisingly deliberate. Especially big fish. I missed a chance at a monster this spring because I couldn't just let my jig soak. We spotted her up shallow from a long way off, made a good shot from distance, and had her staring at it. Then(like a dope), I hopped the jig. Fish spooked, out of there like a shot, game over.

Then again, if you can get a BIG largemouth to line up and really take a whack at something near the surface, it is a site to behold. That slowness is still the key though, at that size, I guess they're too lazy to chase anything.

I have spent at least two hours on two separate occasions in my like fishing ONLY a natural colored jig and trailer. It was over the past several months so it wasn't all that cold. I was definitely moving them a little faster. I'll have to bring only jigs a few times and force myself.....

Question for the moderators. How did the original poster of this thread, Woodyyy, and another poster, IKfish, get themselves banned with only one and six post?

Mine are in no particular order because what I throw depends on season. Anyway, here goes:

1) Zoom trick worm (they work all the time, EVERY time, and anywhere and any way you can think to fish them. I mostly either use them weightless, or on the shakey head)

2) Rapala original floating minnow

3)buzz bait

4) Ribbon Tail worm on Texas rig (Zoom Mag II, Berkely power worm, Zoom U tail. Junebug color gets bit EVERY TIME)

5) rapala countdown minnow

6) beetle spin/rooster tail

7) lipless crankbaits

8) Bold bluegill roboworm on drop shot

9) Shakey head (I only use straight tail worms on it)

10) Yellow Magic Japanese popper or Lobina RICO popper. The yellow magic when they want it fished fast, and the RICO when they want it slow.

Just for good measure, here's a few I DON'T like that I guess i just never figured out even if I caught a fish or two on some of them:

1) Bass jigs
2) Senko
3)Spinnerbaits
4)Chatterbait
5)Jerkbaits

You Make a great point. Most of the biggest bass are caught on things that were either in one general area or BARELY moving in place when they hit. Jigs are the #1 big fish bait and plastic worms are #2. My two biggest bass were caught on a shakey head and they both bit when it was sitting still. In fact, Most Bites you get on any of the three whether it be a jig, Texas rig, or shakey head come when the lure is at rest.
