Roboworm fat 

I been thinking about ordering some of these instead of hula grubs for spotted bass but still not sold on em?

Exactly what I did. I don't buy the Hula Grubs anymore. I like being able to switch  up the skirts. The GP grub body with the Tennessee Orange skirt has been a killer combo for me on the 1/8 oz Gammy ball head jig.

Finesse to me doesnt always mean light weights and small baits. More of a mind set. I finesse 12" worms with 3/4 ounce weights through brush piles all the time. But I've also power fished small trick worms by twitching them like a jerkbait. But I'll stick to What's politically correct and say dropshotting a small lizzard

Intricate or refined delicacy.

You may be right also. It sounds it. More of a presentation style.

Z Man Tubez and Strike King Dreamshots have been killer for me the last 2 seasons both for size and numbers. They work great on a dropshot rig. Z Man Tubez look like a small bait fish or minnow when fished this way.

I agree, you can finesse bigger baits but I meant a finesse presentation on a smaller scale. I guess I meant small profile baits.

I've actually been having trouble this year finding a finesse bite. Weird, but true. A Texas rigged pumpkinseed power worm has been outfishing almost everything. I did however do some work this morning with a flick shake jig and pink trick worm rigged wacky.

2.8 Keitech (Regular, not fat) and a light jig head.  Like a swimming Ned rig.

Deadsticking a 3" BPS Stiko on a split shot rig.  I count to 10 and move it a little.  Usually the bass will pick it up and take off with it.

my best big fish finesse bait is a trick worm on a shakyhead.

my best numbers finesse bait is a ned rig.

there is usually one of each, at the ready, on my deck.

Beside the Ned, my favorite would be the Yamamoto Shad Shape worm.

The bait moves slow but the bass pounce on it.  If I don't get a bite by the 3rd count I bring the bait back in and cast it somewhere else.

Strike King Caffiene Shad on a 4/0 VMC EWG hook. 

 

The tail wiggles like a Senko when you let it fall. Drives the fish nuts.

You said no Ned, but this may be news to some:  Rig a drop shot with one color Ned on the hook on the line and another color on the bottom instead of a sinker.  May not be legal everywhere.

spro or home tied hair jigs/bucktails. 

 

River2Sea Lane Changer 150 topwater lure is what I think is finesse, had a good week fishing that, wasn't a big fan of that lure until this week. No wind, clear water sightfishing most of the week and other "noisier" topwater lures were spooking fish. I've never seen water in this particular river this clear and I been fishing this river for 40 years. 

 

Tiny ice fishing spoons for bluegill, gsf, rock bass is a favorite of mine, I often get a couple bass with them too.

 

jigging rap for open water walleye(lure was designed for ice fishing)

That would apply to any dead stick presentation and most big swimbaits.

Some folks quote the dictionary definition for finesse, others refer to light line presentations, others just like to argue. When you come up with something everyone agrees post it!
