Today I was asked by a co-worker to put a list of lures together where he could spend 100 bucks on lures and get started bass fishing.  This is the list I put together, but it made me think what everyone here would recommend to someone if they asked you the same question.

 

Yum Dinger w/ 1/0 EWG hook for wacky rigging 

Rebel Pop-R 

1/4 Bitsy Flip Jig w/ Craw trailer 

Suicide Shad w/ swim jig head

 

I'm not a brand specific guy so I went with affordable lures that I feel would help anyone catch some fish.

I don't see anything that wouldn't catch em ...... :thumbsup1:

I can only assume that this list has your experience in it ..... we are all a little different.

If I was personally tasked with doing something like this I would try and cover as many types of fishing as I could. Meaning, have some moving baits, topwater, bottom contact, hardbaits etc. So for me it would be something like this. 

 

1x Squarebill Crankbait

1x Topwater Hardbait or buzzbait

1x Pack of straight tail worms

2x jigs in applicable colors

1x Pack of jig trailers

1x Pack of creature baits

Hooks/weights to go with the various rigs that I'm guessing he would need to learn.

 

At least with something like this he would be able to figure out what type of fishing he prefers fairly quickly without much of a monetary investment in any one particular method. It would also kind of depend on where he plans on fishing as to how effective certain presentations would be.

1. Spinnerbait

2. Various texas rig baits (most important)

3. Flipping jig

4. Walking bait

5. Crankbait

6. Lipless crankbait

 

Those are some of the most effective lures. If he has a ML or M power rod, something like a ned rig, or dropshot would be better, but with a MH the lures listed above would be best.

I'd have him buy some senkos and terminal tackle for wacky and Texas rigs and only fish that until he gained skill and confidence. Then he can expand from that later in the year with other presentations.

X2...all the other ideas are great, but this suggestion will save you some monies and help you to gain some invaluable experience. Keep reading and continue practicing. Take time to enjoy catching a few fish and gaining confidence in one technique before you introduce yourself to the bait monkey.

I can't list colors because that all depends on your location and water clarity.

 

2x 3/8oz Strike King Spinnerbaits

2x KVD 1.5 Squarebill Crankbaits

1x 1/4oz Rat-L-Trap

1x 1/2oz Rat-L-Trap

1x Pack of Zoom Original Trick Worms

1x Pack of 7in. Berkley Power Worms

1x Pack of 4in Senkos

1x Pack of 5in Senkos

1x Whopper Plopper 110

1x 3/8oz Strike King Buzzbait

1x Pack of 2/0 Gammy EWG Hooks 

1x Pack of 3/0 Gammy EWG Hooks

1x Pack of 1/0 Gammy Octopus Circle Hooks

1x Pack of 1/8oz Bullet Weights

1x Pack of 1/4oz Bullet Weights

 

Right around $100 after taxes. Great way to start. This is what I would do.

In addition, I would definitely pass on Jigs, Swimbaits, and Frogs at this stage. Jigs and Frogs especially take experience, and they can be frustrating if you don't know what you're doing - even if you do know what you're doing.

Thanks for the input guys, I actually decided to direct him to RoadWarrior's famous post about catching bass. That is where I started so hopefully it will help his as well.

I would agree.  A few plastics such as senkos and trick worms or 6 inch worms.  I think ewg hooks are easier to learn on,.  And a weight assortment.  A couple spinner baits,  a popper, Rattle trap, square bill.  If you are gonna include a jig, maybe a bitsy bug.  You might do better to downsize at first, which should get more bites.  You can always go with a Ned rig.  I like the pond king kits that  was mentioned by Choporoz.  May be confising to him, though.
