When it comes to smallies and plastics, I've found that if it is "small", "wiggly", and "green pumpkin" in color, it will catch plenty of smallies anywhere.  :)

I catch a lot on a Zoom Horny Toad and a 1/8oz Roadrunner with a 3" Grub.

Zoom superflukes and yum crawbugs, rage tail craws.  Smallies aren't exactly picking a lot of times.

Hi new here to the board and I have to say it's really amazing how much I have learnned just from this thread. I do a lot of Smallmouth fishing in Ontario (NWO) where a lot of the lakes are clear,cold and deep with a lot of rocky structer. My personal best bait I use a Zoom OLE MONSTER HEAY SALT WORM in either anything with red flakes in it or a Watermelon color. I just hook them throuh the nose flip it out and let it sink and then reel in with a stop and go motion. It's hard to believe how a smallie will take a 10 1/2 inch bait in one gulp. These baits were bought to take down to use on Pickwick or Wilson lake in ALabama but trip got cancelled so I tried them in Canada and have been using ever since up there. Biggest smallie to date is 7.12lbs. In 40 days I'm headed back up there to fish the AYA and the SSS Tournaments.

^^ This. In black, smoke, or green pumpkin.

There are no magic lures and the fish don't care how much you paid for your gear.

3 or 4 inch curly tail grubs with a 1/4 or 3/8 ounce jig head, depending on current, in either black, yellow, or clear with black flake works for me. Also, for me personally, I seem to do better with chartreuse jigheads for whatever reason.

5" hula grub on a football jig if fishing rocks and the cray fish are active. If not a brown or brown/red crank bait. Thats about as simple as I can make it, however I always seem to over think it... I think most of us do when it comes to fishing. haha
