What would we prefer for what? A Texas rig, a jig trailer, a weightless bait? I would use them for different things. They really aren't in the same category / rigging as each other.

Texas Rig my mistake

Grub because i can cover more water with it quicker but I wouldn't texes rig it.  The question is very open ended and there are many factors that would come into play in my selection.

i'd use the grub as a silent reaction bait on a simple 1/8 oz jig head (or bullet weight if you have them laying around). ie when they want something small silent and moving b/c the large flashy/vibrating blades of a spinnerbait are too much. grubs seem to work when spinnerbaits/crankbaits etc won't.  

and i'd use it on a drop shot. or as a sb/chatterbait trailer.

 

i'd use the craw bare and T rigged, unpegged with 1/4-1/2oz bullet weight depending on conditions.  (lighter in shallow water, on clear sky days and ponds where fish might be spooked; when they want a slow rate of fall).  heavier in larger lakes, in wind and in weeds i want to penetrate). or weightless in very shallow water and burning thru lily pad fields like a silent wake bait/topwater. 

or peg it for target pitching and pulling thru brush piles.

or as a jig trailer.

 

i'd T rig the senko weightless around any kind of cover. if you put a bead in front of the hook it will slide thru weeds much more easily.

or wacky rig in water deeper than 6ft or open/clear water where they can really see the wiggle working. wacky on spinning gear to skip under docks and under lay downs.

or add a bullet weight if you need to get to the bottom and slow drag. 

 

the Federale is just a senko that works better T rigged than wacky. weightless or add bullet weight/jig head for a bottom bait. or on the back of a spinnerbait as a trailer. it's a hunk of plastic you'd do well with in any farm pond in the country. 

 

weightless on spinning gear w/ 6-8lb test line will get you far more bites. yes you'll have break off but its worth it b/c you'll have more fun catching fish while learning all about bubba

If I'm targeting LM in tight cover, the Mighty Bug is hard to beat. If there's a bass in there, it will hit this one for sure.

Are we to assume that all of the baits would be the same color, or that they are the colors shown in the picture?

What they are in the picture

All of them on an Arig lol.  The senko style bait would be my pick if I had to choose.  You can fish it several ways.  texas rigged, Carolina rigged, weightless, wacky and even as a jig trailer.

All of them. It depends on the situation and how I'm fishing it as to which I would pick.

What is the reasoning behind having to choose only one?  Do you only have a very small tackle box? Can you only afford one package of plastics? Who only uses one style or color?
