What has been your best large bass lure of this late summer?

Recommended Posts

Large fish being relative to where you fish. For me, it's no contest.

3/8 ounce bleeding Hart Stopper White buzz bait made by Hart.

Keel weighted Super Flukes ripped across the surface and then immediately allowed to die.  I have no idea why I forgot about fishing these this way, but holy **** is it exciting watching fish smash them out of the water as soon as you pause them and let them fall.

Large bass...(?!)  You're making a lot of assumptions there, cowboy.  ;  )

BUT the largest bass I've caught this summer was taken with a brown and orange skirted spinnerbait.

Also no contest for me. During the day I've only fished ponds and the river once or twice and all my big ones were on swimbaits at daybreak or dusk. Mattlures ultimate gill in the ponds and Keitech 4.8 fat impacts in the river. At night I've fished larger lakes and dam tail races on the river and caught all my big ones on 1/2 oz night spinnerbaits in the lake and burple or albino colored bomber long A's in the river

Bill Norman FatBoy. My three biggest this summer were caught on it. Straight out of the package, third cast, both sets of hooks in her mouth, the first one was the biggest.

Between work and remodeling a bathroom and bedroom, plus a deck tear out, I think I forgot. But I think it was a Zoom Ol Monster - California  420 fished after dark.

For big bass it has been a 130 Perch Whopper Plopper. And for both good fish and numbers it has been a 3/8th Picasso shock blade in bluegill with a 3.8 Kietech swing fat in bluegill flash.

Powder colored W.P 130 for the largest and various soft plastics on a drop shot for numbers.  Try the Reins bubbling shaker, you wont be sorry.

Texas rigged Rage Craw, with a 3/8 oz. tungsten weight, and punch skirt. The most versatile bait I've ever used.

130 size was responsible for 2 of the 5 fish I have caught over 4 lbs this year. Runner up is the swimjig but my 2 4+ lbers were caught in the spring (including my PB at 5.4). Other was on a spro rat.

Fat Ika/T-rig craw.

Since June, the Ika has caught me 11 fish over 3.5lbs.  Among them, 4 were 4lbs+, and 2 were 5lbs+.   Additional Honorable mention goes to the T-rig Zoom Super Speed Craw, which brought in 3 additional 4lbers, and one 6lb+
