I stick to translucent and white colors.  I like a little blue flake in there too.  Ask people that fish where you fish.

Disco violet, Arkansas shiner, and albino are my favorites.

This has been killer for me: Sworming Hornet/ LFT Live Magic Shad.

A few years ago at Pickwick on a BassResource RoadTrip I caught

78 bass one day on this rig. The key is the retrieve: Cast and let the

lure settle to the bottom. Maintain your rod at 10:00 while quickly reeling,

perhaps five turns. Allow the lure to fall on slack line and repeat until

you feel you are out of the zone. The underblade lifts the body, DO

NOT PUMP your rod. Reeling lifts the bait, pumping moves it forward.

thank you for the insight. i have bought the swiming hornet but never caught anything yet and had one lying around  .  seems like a great middground between a spinner bait and a crank . was thinking about even using a medium moderate CB rod so i can feel bites better

100% of the bites occur on the fall and you won't feel anything.

If it doesn't hit the bottom when you think it should, set the hook!

Otherwise, you will feel "something" when you begin reeling...

SET THE HOOK!

I don't think a slower action is the answer. A good quality Med fast rod should give you the sensitivity and hooksets you need.

^^^^What he said.  As far as feeling bites, crankbait rods are not your best bet. A medium power fast action rod will do just fine.

do you slow roll it back after it hits bottom?

No, you reel quickly about 5 turns without moving your rod, then let it fall

again on slack line. Repeat this sequence until you feel you are out of the

zone.
