What bait/lure do you have the most luck with for SMALLMOUTH?

I cast them from Do-it's Midwest Finesse mold with the Owner 5313 hook, size 1.

Would like to find them readily available !

Lately it's been this 4 inch paddletail in green/white on a jig head, on a ML/XF spinning rod. Nothing but smallies.

 

When the head of the soft plastic gets worn down, snip off a quarter inch at the top and thread it back on the jig head and keep fishing.

 

Smallies love it.

I Love my Small Mouth Bass, my main go too bait.

1/8 or 1/4 jig head with a 2 1/2" paddle tail on it...deadly!!

 

I do love top water fishing too, I throw a whooper plopper, best top water bait 

since the jitterbug!

My go-to for river smallmouth is a 2.5" Cabin Creek Salty Critter Jr tubes, green pumpkin blue, rigged on a black Cadman's Custom Jigs "Smallie Crawlin" jig.

I love fishing small tubes (craws and little creature baits too for that matter) for smallies. Getting to know the river bottom, finding where the fish are, and the "Thump!" Of a tube hit.... just can't be beat for me.

Maybe a Wisconsin thing, hard to beat a tube rivers or lakes!

I'd like to try out those Cadman's jigs...but do they really expect people to mail a check/ money order this day and age? Hoping there's somewhere else I can buy.
