Depends when and where you are fishing,. Florida where you live and fish a live golden shiner would be the ticket. More trophy size bass are caught in Florida with shiners then anything else.
In SoCal where I fish the top giant bass are caught on live crawdads during pre spawn. They use live water dogs in Texas.
I catch my giant bass on jigs, during pre spawn, jigs are a lure not a bait.

For me in this area it's a jig.

It all depends on what the bass are in the mood for.  Around here it has been cranks the last couple of years.

My biggest came on a 7" red shad power worm. It was a 7.2. My other have hit a bunch of different baits. I have yet to gain confidence in a jig. I just haven't fished it much. My next tournament sets up for that kind of bite and I'll promise you that I will catch fish on a jig and gain confidence or I won't weigh anything!
When I hear this question asked or read about this topic only one bait has stood out. It is hands down a jig.
God grant that I may fish until my diying day;
And when at last I come to rest, I'll then most humbly pray;
When in His landing net I lie in final sleep;
That in His mercy I'll be judged as good enough to keep! -Homer Circle

Jig or swimbait, depends on the situation/location for me.


The scale never lies, but yours might be broken.

Jig!!!! When I'm catching a lot of 1.5lb to 2lb fish I'll often start fishing a jig on isolated cover near the areas I was catching the smaller fish, normally what happens is the numbers go way down but the average size jumps up significantly!!

8" huddlestons hands down. I'm getting some in a couple of weeks. But recently I have been catching numbers and size on a yum dinger wacky rigged. But that's for my lake. I don't know about yours. Anything big I would say. Just find out what they are eating and get a bait that is the same color and get it in a big size. So that way it looks like the forage and its bigger. Just my opinion.
