    Everyone has a favorite lure that is used year after year. What's your favorite?

    I can't go bass fishing without using a nip-i-didee. The black color is my favorite and the bass will just cream it.

    the one fake bait I've had the best luck with is a plastic worm I bought for $2 from meijer....lol. For real, by far the best I've used.

    without a doubt, I would have to say the line of heddon sonics that I have in my box that probably belong in a case somewhere. My great grandpa bought about half of them 34 years ago and my dad bought the other half shortly after that. I dont without a fish or two when i break out ol' faithful

    Jitterbug, without a doubt. Nothing like a bass splashing up to grab one.

    Just turned my 2 young boys onto the joys of topwater bass fishing - wanted to wait until they wouldnt bury one into the back of my (or their) scalp before I let them do too much casting in a small boat.

    They had a blast.

    Last week it was a 4" Mann's Dragin finesse jigworm. This morning it was a 3" powergrub. Next week my favorite will be whatever the bass are biting then.

    Favorite bait: Luhr Jensen's version of a Zara Spook; I LOVE walking the dog, both working the bait and the ferocious hits it gets. the LJ is wood and sits a bit lower in the water than the Spook, thereby making a much larger wake.

    Most effective bait: another vote for a 4" Yum Dinger (watermelon w/chartreuse tail in particular)
