Wise choice. The bass in my profile pic was caught on an ol monster. Thanks, Will W.

Hmmm. Maybe a different perspective, as I've caught all my big bass on soft plastics.

 

1) Senko + off-brand

2) Zoom Trick Worm

3) Zoom Finesse Worm

Big mop style jigs with large trailer. I made a mold of the old soft plastic bill dance craw crankbait and pour a about a 5 1/2" trailer. I picked up about a dozen bottles of liquid powerbait a few years back and marinate the trailers in that. I like to use them any place there are likely to hold a big fish, not really a blind search bait. From cover like docks and laydowns to open water humps and points.

I also like a few large topwaters like lunker plunkers, rapala x-walk 13's, and big pencil baits. The bigger baits can bring a bass from a long, long way and make fish do some crazy things. If Im on the river and chasing smallies, a sammy 85 while only 4" or so catches a football sized smallies.

My most rewarding bait is a single blade 3/8 buzzbait. Brand doesnt matter as long as it has a good hook and planes right. Theres is nothing more rewarding than hearing the bloop, bloop, BOOM of a good fish. I also seem to cast buzzbaits more accurately than most other styles of lures. Some may not feel the same way, maybe its just a repetively learned thing but I can put a buzzbait under limbs and into little pockets on command. Not always the case with other lures.

In past seasons, it has been:
 

1. 7 inch senko

2. Rapala skitter walk

3. Swim jig

 

However this season i think the first two will change!
