i love plastics, but im also a big fan of topwater. somethin about that explosion on the water as the bass hammers my lure is just not achieved by many other baits. i enjoy throwin my buzz baits and spinner baits quite a bit as well. favorite... has to be topwater
I like topwater lures. There is nothing like seeing a fish come up & hammer your lure. I get so excited I have to control myself or else I'll pull the lure away from the fish before he has it in his mouth.
I love the Zara Spook Jr. I can cast it along way & it walks the dog great.
I have caught more fish on that lure than anything else.
Another favorite is the Rapala X-Rap slash bait. I have it in purple & olive green. I have caught walleye & bass on both colors.
I haven't even gotten to spinner baits & buzz baits, but I have to go.
I started concentrating on artificials 7 years ago. Was a live bait fisherman forever. Since that time i've discovered SO many productive lures for different conditions.
I would have to say that the most versatile lure and most productive lure has been the Senko.
Texas-rigged plastic worms have traditionally been the most successful lures for bass fishermen for years. The Senko, I believe, takes this approach to ne heights in it's simplicity to work for both the professional angler and the novice angler.
And I also LOVE the Rapala Husky Jerk. Sure, the X-Raps are the new craze, but the Husky Jerk has landed me several species of fish on many waters.
1) senko - still end up throwing it when all else fails - its idiot proof so is well suited to me
2) spinner - inline and the other one i don't know what to call it
4) newly added x-rap 10
5) jig head
