Depends where the tournament is held and what time if the year. My confidence bait periodically changes with the conditions.

This time of year it would be a lipless crankbait, jig and craw, and a bladed jig.

Swim Senko...Gambler Big EZ either on a swim jig, punch skirt in front, or just a light bullet weight, or my new favorite is the Megabass Spark shad on an Owner weighted hook......Then pitching a soft bait either a big straight tailed worm, Fat max, or beaver/speed craw style bait...

 

Then if I just need some strikes I break out a really light carolina rig and start chucking a Rage menace or Finesse worm, or will throw a floating Rapala or long a over submerged weeds. Its hard to not get bit on a floating rapala especially if you can get away with 8-10lb test mono, or if stained, 20lb braid and some days that is all I need. Long A gets bigger fish, but the Rapala gets alot more attention.

 

Thats kind of my arsenal...I tend to swim a rage craw or speed craw on top instead of a toad, this way I can make a long pitch and swim it back to the boat or spin around and just cover water. I get bored pitching even though that is usually how the bigger fish are caught. I enjoy it when with someone who is much better than me at finding fish, this way I know that I am in the right area... I also feel that bass get pounded over and over with the same 1.5 oz weights and BB crickets all day long, usually the best spots get pounded, but sometimes you can get lucky and get an offshore spot or submerged vegetation to yourself.

Whatever I caught bass on before the tournament.

I prefer using jigs, worms and swimbaits.
