Just wondering what kind of finesse lures most people use. Just bought my first finesse setup but I'm not sure what to buy first.

Tough question for me as I like a few almost equally.

 

I gave the nod to Ned, tho, since it is the newest finesse rig

I've tried, and enjoyed.

Drop shot and split shot rigs. 4"-5" worms.

Wacky Rig, since I mostly fish ponds.

 

In lakes, drop shot.

 

Rivers and streams, Ned Rig.

Wacky is my favorite but I fish a Ned more.

 A 3" to 4" grub (Zoom Fat Albert most of the time) on a 1/4 to 3/8oz jighead! When everything else fails a grub on a jighead is my savior!

Light Texas rig, split shot rig, and shakey head. Mostly zoom finesse worms and roboworms, sometimes smaller craw baits

Mojo rig is what I have had tied on this year so far with various zoom plastics.

The ned and Neko rig have been getting a lot of work for me lately, but day in day out, wacky rigs and drop shotting still are my go to.

Weightless Senko.  But a Ned with a Cali-Roll Yamamoto, just tore up the smallmouth this year on St Clair.

The wacky rig is my favorite. But my most productive is a dropshot. And I use a shaky head the most.

Which one do I pick if I wacky rig a TRD on a drop shot while shaking? 🤔 lol

 

In all seriousness, I go with the Ned. Last year, it would've been the drop shot.

For finesse, due to the water depth it is either weightless wacky for a slow fall, or a dropshot wacky to get down deeper quicker.

This is on a medium action spinning setup.  My finesse/dropshot setup is a Shimano Crucial rod with a Shimano CI4+ reel and 8lb Fluoro.

It used to be the dropshot... but i find myself reaching for the deadly nedly these days. Neko rig with an Exo Stick is a favorite too.

Ned rig for shallow and a drop shot for deep using Z Man plastics.

Caught a nice one last night on the old Texas Rig with a Zoom lizard and a few dinks with a shaky head.   Haven't gone to the Ned yet.  I like to drop shot when over the top of them when a little deeper as well.

I don't really enjoy finesse type fishing at all. I've tried the ned rig a couple of times and caught 2 dinks with 1 of them being the smallest bass I've ever caught. I guess I've had my best luck finesse style fishing with the shaky head setup so far. I think I was more born to grind crankbaits as it's really the only way I love to fish. Hit or miss but that doens't matter to me.

 

I did catch my largest Spot (4lb)on a shakey head setup. Caught a LMB on a shaky head that was around 6lbs.
