Can't beat a classic rooster tail. I only use them in ponds when conditions call for a spinnerbait because the bass are too finicky for a normal spinnerbait.

#4 plain Mepps. The models with the squirrel tails don't catch any more fish, they just cost more.

Panther Martin and Blue Fox. Not a fan of the mepps or any other brand that's like them since the blades can hang up too easily.

Mepps ( all dressed ), have found they work exceptionally well on the upper Niagara river.

Mepps plain and with. Great for smallies at river I fish in. Sizes 3 and 4. 5's at times which get bonus size bass and occasional northern and muskie. Gotta have em around.

Found a plain undressed Mepps last season.  I've caught a few bass and pickerel on it.  Seems to do well when the fish aren't really biting anything else

My favorite, all species, hard bait.  From crappie to muskie, a Mepps will catch them. I've also used Vibrax, but I'm more confident when I throw a dressed Mepps

Always have a couple classic blue fox vibrax spinners around.

Colors; blue with silver blade or gold on gold.

Do not let these guys misguide you, in line spinners are useless for Bass fishing.

Pretty good peacock bass bait.  Roostertails are not too durable, I prefer Mepps.

Joes Flies are about the only ones I've had any consistent results with.

@masterbass don't let one negative quote out of 16 misguide you, inline spinners can really excel when the bite gets tough. I caught a 3# last year on a white 1/8 oz. Worden's Vibric Roostertail.

I think Raul was kidding.

 

I like #3 Mepps, dressed. I have a couple of Rooster Tails but I have to rip them hard to get them spinning for some reason, so I don't use them much but they will catch fish. I always use a swivel 12" up with inline spinners to cut down on line twist.

My list so far on what I use with success.

Mepps #3 great size to start off with. Silver blade w/ gray dressed, gold blade w/Brown dressed. When the bite is on any color will work. The red/white blade w/Gray or brown dressed is good too.

Mepps #4 & #5 when the bite is on with the #3 and it slows down put on a number #4 or #5 mepps on. The bigger fish come in close and scare the smaller fish away but won't strike the smaller lure. They come to see what the smaller fish are feeding on.

Joe's Fly New 1/4 ounce bass size. Remember natural colors for lighter conditions and bright colors for darker conditions.

I been begging Joe for a 3/8ounce size too even a 1/2ounce size.

On an overcast, cloudy day, with light warm rain try a Joe's fly in firetiger apache or a glo tiger. The brighter colors are great in dusk, low light conditions as night fall comes.

The worsens work good too. Something to throw that's different.

The blue Fox in lines are good too. Never pass up buying a quality inline.

You guys who like the dressed Mepps. Have you ever tried them plain?

The inline spinner is one of the many hot lures for bass. I never leave home without them.

If there not working for you your presentation is wrong. Either your throwing it like a rock when it crashes the water or your reeling it way to fast. Slow it down till the blade just spins in stained or muddy water. In clear water it's a tad faster.

I always use them dressed but I need to try them when the frenzy is on plain. Or in rivers when the flash attracts bass much quicker.

I use them in shallow, rocky rivers for smallmouth a lot. It's easy to get them hung up so I loose more than a few. The cost savings on the plain vs. dressed adds up. Another thing, the dressed ones seem to hold on to weeds pretty good. The plain ones are easier to clean off. Plus, as I said you would probably never notice any drop off in catch rates using the plain ones.
