1 Lure You Have No Confidence In...

Recommended Posts

For me I will have to say a Tube. Ive fished a tube a little bit, but not much. Just dont have an confidence to use it much. Im going to work on it a little more this year so maybe I can get a little confidence in it.

Dang. I just re-read the topic. "NO" confidence... Deleted my "worm" reference, since that's my confidence bait, and we'll go with the following:

 

Crankbaits

 

I love these things, but catch so few fish on them it is a shame. I still try, but end up frustrated.

Swim jigs, spinnerbaits. Even tie for me. Zero success despite all my efforts.

Swim Jig.  I so badly want to turn the confidence for me with it, but I can't seem to catch fish.  I know it is productive in the waters I fish.....but not for me.

Plastic hollow bodied swim baits. I haven't caught any bass on them. I got some huge drum with them but that's it.

Hard plastic jerkbaits. I don't get out in cold water much, but when I do I have a hard time catching anything on these.

Same for me. So over the last few months I have picked up a couple of lipless, SK 3-5-6XD's, and 3 storm arashi's

Swim Jigs

Spinnerbaits

Chatterbaits

Big Swimbaits

Poppers

Tubes

Beavers

 

These are the ones I'm going to focus on this year. Except for the tube. I don't really care about fishing a tube. :)

I would say a jerkbait.I don't catch many on them. My top 3 favorite would be deep diving crankbait,texas rigged worm,and rattletrap.

Buzzbaits!  Hate 'em!  Zero confidence, too many misses.

I guess I'm confident in everything but a suspending jerkbait and a dropshot. I hate throwing anything finesse,Like a shakey head,Texas rig,weightless senko/trick worm even a spinnerbait. Everyone on the lake is throwing a shakey head or a spinnerbait it seems like. That's why I stick with a swim jig or swim bait 99% of the time if the cover and water clarity allow it.

Jig,

Ashamed to say that, but i've never caught a fish on a jig. Granted i've probably fished with a jig a total of 1 hour.

 

Chatterbaits too.

You guys that don't like the swim jig should really throw it more. Take two medium heavy rods higher speed reels spooled with braid and a handful of swim jigs. Don't take any other lures and go fish them. It's the only way you are going to learn.

Deep cranking my home lake. Caught a handful of fish with them. Just not enough to say I have any real confidence in throwing them. Spent a good couple of hours today trying, just didn't happen....
