Try the River2Sea Super Yabbie. Great lure for beds or just fliping and pitching docks,wood, etc...

Blade baits & hard jerkbaits work.

There is really no "best" bait some things will just always work better than other IN CERTAIN SITUATIONS

HOWEVER....

A few baits I know i will catch a fish on eventually in one day are: Weightless Gary Yamamoto Senko (pick color for your clarity of water fish very slow), Green Pumpkin and black Jig and craw or pork trailer (again fished slow but with short hops on the bottom), I have a lot of luck on Berkley Power Worms as well, If they are in the mood for top water i love buzzbaits and hollow body frogs, and finally for the smallmouth id tie on a 4" white grub 1 or twin tail

Remember i dont know anything about the water you are fishing these are just baits i have found can produce just about all year long and in any water with the right color and presentation of course just try a few out the only way to find out if something works in your waters is to try it yourself

GOOD LUCK AND TIGHT LINES-MDP

As MDP said, there is no "best." It's now late spring and a wide variety of lures will work. I've been using crankbaits but yesterday they were hitting Jitterbugs. That's not to say that these lures are superior, it's just that they work. No doubt other lures would have caught many of the same fish as well.

The best for me would be jigs, for the next guy something different. Alot depends on your location, water level, clarity, time of year, temp etc etc etc. most importantly it's what your confident in.

Short answer is a jig. I prefer a pork trailer in colder water.

I been having some good luck with squarebills and supershallow cranksbaits. The booyah top secret buzzbait has been pretty awesome too and jerkbaits like the matzuo phantom minnow and yo-zuri crystal 3d minnow. The bomber 15a is also becoming one of my favorites in the jerkbait lineup.

1/2 ounce Bloody Shad Swim jig from Siebert Outdoors.

Chatterbait with a 4" Yamamoto Swim Senko trailer.

1 ounce Siebert Outdoors Elite jig in the new 313 color with a Yamamoto Fat Baby Craw trailer.

Question about your chatter swim, do you take the skirts off or keep them on and or does some other factor dictate that choice?

 

OP for me it would be Jerkbait, Jig and DropShot in that order.

I like Senkos and Swim Senkos in the spring, and fall and summer.. Before the bass moved into the shallows I was doing OK with a drop shot rig.

It's different for everyone, it really comes down to a confidence thing.  For me, I have 4 baits that I turn to early season (although our season doesnt open until the last Saturday in June).  A craw (Imperium Minotauro or Chigger craw), a stick bait (Imperium Impact Stick), a tube (Imperium Prodigy) or a soft jerk shad (Imperium Ace)
