Ok guys you have to pick one artificial lure to use for the rest of your life. You can change sizes and colors but it has to be the same lure. Don't get off track here, one lure, no live bait. Please feel free to give your reasons for choosing this bait.
Bomber Suspending (Long A Minnow) - I like the red and white or red and white with a lime stripe, jointed or not. 4-1/2" long with a small bill on the front - floats, dives shallow, drives the fish to bite! I've caught snook, speckled trout, redfish and too many blues and jacks to count with that lure. There are some great big fish in the Gulf that kept one for themselves, too. A close copy is made by Excaliber and generic brands are available. (At the risk of advertising, ww.jacksinternational.com has some good prices)
ANY COLOR OF KRYSTAL FLASH BUGGER, OR SEAL BUGGER
A 1/8 ounce jig head with a white 2" curl tail grub. Will catch 'em anywhere!!
I would say a goldfish lure...been catchin a few on it lately
A single bare hook!!! There is nothing better than fishing on credit
You must be a dentist.... only one lure or one peice of candy in a candy shop full of lures!!!!.... picking only one lure is hard to do when you become proficent with a number of lures. I could not choose only one lure, I fish for a number of different speices and they dont all respond to the same lures. How do I choose?
Berkeley soft tubes. If I lived up North then I would have to go with a ThinFin for walleye. Down here in Texas we don't have many walleye and it was hard to pick between the Berkeley soft tube and a Rattletrap or plastic worm. Imagine the soft tube would catch bigger fish both smallmouth and largemouth. You don't make it easy on a fella do ya! Ok, Berkeley soft tube.
Get ready to laugh.... Red and White "Red Devil" spoon, about 2", a little on the fat side...When nothing else is working, it always seems to do the trick. I've caught goldeye, walleye, rainbow trout, jackfish, various bass, and just about anything else that might be hungry for a minnow in any kind of water. My all time favorite artificial bait. Dubie
I'd have to go with a curly tail grub. You might not catch any monsters on it but you can still catch alot of fish.
Crank bait? Sure you don't just want to say anything with hooks attached to it?? lol
My favorite would have to be a beetle spin type lure with a twister tail on it. The only fish i haven't caught on this lure is a steelhead, probably because i haven't tried it yet.
I'll have to go with Northland Tackle's Mimic Minnow with the spinner blade. That way you have a jig head that looks like a fishes head. You have the fish style body. You can remove the wire with the blade on it or use it just like a regular spinner bait with the fish body instead of the usual spinnerbait skirt. It's a multi-functional set-up. Best part is, you can get them through Cabela's online right now! Just click on their link up at the top of this page.
Hey there guys, The leadhead jig is the best all-arouund, all-season, all-species, and all-mighty ruler of the water column. What dressings, colors, material, add-ons (eyes, hoographic tape variations can you use ?? Got Imagination ? Rubber skirts, porkrinds, fish skins, feathers, tube lures, hair, plastic softbaits/swimbaits/grubs/worm rigs, scents, artificial varmits, freshwater/saltwater larger species flies (leadhead/eye flies right !) Leadhead Setups, breadth of tackle that can be used to fish them, weight, hook size and style, depth fished, head design to match enviorment (bottom, structure or hydro dynamic), retrieval technology... you name it. Depending on the head design, dressing, and weight, the leadhead can be fished from top to bottom. JapanRon
Curly tail jig. There are so many sizes/colors available, and you can catch just about any species out there off of them. They may not be the best choice for each species, but overall I'd have to say they'd be the best. Small ones for perch, crappie, bluegill and other panfish. 2" size for white bass, smallies, etc. and some trout. Larger for walleye, largemouth bass, pike and musky, etc.
I would stay with the rubber goodies in the plastic bags. Since there are Worms, brushhogs, lizards, grubs and leeches, I would keep the brushhogs. The brushhogs have worked well for me in fresh and salt water.
Have to be sencos for me. Maniac also makes some great ones that last longer.
Thats a toughie, but i would have to go with one of maniacs custom made 5" tubes.
