what is the best bait of this season

Recommended Posts

We need a little more information about the lake but you can't go wrong with a jig. But what color, size, action, and speed all depend on the body of water you will be fishing.

Wow, big question for such a little amount of info.

but you did post your state (Louisiana) in your profile, otherwise I wouldn't even bother to respong.

Jigs are always a great choice in cooler water, but can be difficult for a newbie (you new to bassin' yes?)

Fortunately the hard bait bite should be pretty good.

Ratltraps,  slender minnow baits like rapalas, rogues, and of course pointers. are very productive right now.

For soft baits.  the senko can't be beat.  Just check the sticky on that.

Good luck and have fun.

Berkley, in addition to the other suggestions, in Louisiana, the water should be warm enough that a slow rolled spinnerbait would work at times, also.

No price concern:

Lucky Craft Live Pointers (95 MR is my all around choice)

Yo-Zuri Rattle N Vibes

Spro Aruku Shad 75

Yo-Zuri DRUM

Lucky Craft Pointer

Lucky Craft Sammy

Price concerned:

Wide wobble cranks are said to be bad in cold weather but my Rapala DTs are telling a different story.

Rapala Husky Jerks, solid jerkbaits at a cheap price.

Rapala X-Raps, not producing as much as they were when it was warmer but still are working. Regardless of price these are some of the best jerkbaits out right now.

Shad Rap RS

(P.S. Rapala, Sponsor Me!)

The suspending and high flash tight wobble cranks I have have been producing the most.
