    What's your favorite bait to use when bass fishing, and what have you had the most luck on?

    It's got LSD man.....
    My favorite would be a Pop-R topwater, but I usually have the most luck with a Texas rigged worm in watermelon/pumpkinseed color

    The chartreuse sexy shad is pretty awesome early on in the year in Maryland. I have won a few tournaments fishing this exclusively. Nothing beats a topwater bite though. Spro frogs, Pop-R and Babrinsky frogs are doing well for me lately. Bad thing is the snake heads are hitting them too.

    When I want to slow my fishing down I go with a 5" Yamamoto Senko in Laminate.

    I've been having luck in sc on smaller lakes with Zoom trick worms in watermelon red, June bug, and green pumpkin

    Larger lakes seem to be following the same trends plus some success on fire tiger spinners and (I forget the names) the long thin crank baits that float and dive as you reel


    I don't have a favorite persay...I just got a heap of lures (6 3600 boxes plus a rubbermaid bin full in the closet) of various shapes/sizes/colors that I can choose from to find what they're biting

    Zoom flukes! I love fishing soft plastics, but these are my go to bait. Variety of colors and sizes, awesome for large and smallmouth. Can be fished weightless for a killer topwater jerkbait, or you can find insert weights to fish them deeper. They swim the best with a number 2 or 3 hook with an offset shank. Very similar to slug-o's but thyre hard to find these days. Rippin' lips!
