Help chosing soft plastic for today?

Recommended Posts

Taking the kayak out for the first time all year today. I'm in Oklahoma and we are on the back end of a three-day warming trend. It's going to hit the low 60's here today and we're going to be fishing a small lake. For the first time in forever the wind is going to be under 10 mph and that means I'm changing the spinnerbait for a Texas rig. I don't have a ton of experience with the rig and was hoping to get some opinions on what you would throw in this situation.

 

If you were fishing a small lake today and the weather was in the low 60's what plastic would you throw on your texas rig?

Need more info:

-First: Where you are in the season: Post-Winter, Pre-Spawn, Spawn. 

-Then, mainly: cover type and density (if any), and visibility for the fish (water clarity, and sky conditions).

-Third, prey types in your lake? Shad? Sunfishes?

Should be pre-spawn ( finger crossed. We'll see what the water temps are when we get there) 

Looks to have a significant amount of standing timber. That and normal points and drop offs, points will be what we focus on. 

first time in this lake, but around here with a lake this size I'd expect bluegill for sure and maybe some shad.

I would use whatever floats my boat at the time . I like black and chartreuse craws early on , purplish  lizards and worms .

Zoom trick worm 

Senko 

Havoc Pitt boss or reaction innovations sweet beaver. 

 

You don't something with too much action this early in the season. 4/0 EWG hook and 1/8-1/4oz bullet weight and your good to go.

I usually start and end with a weedless trick worm.  Weight to suit.  If fairly clear, use watermelon red flake or green pumpkin.  If stained to muddy, I go with Junebug or Candybug. When things get warmer, use more action like a creature or curly tail up to u vibe worm.

Black or GP jig with a Zoom super chunk trailer based on water color. When in doubt use the black jig with the GP trailer.

For every 5 people who respond to this question, you're gonna get 10 recommendations. Mine are:

1. Lizard or creature in the color of your choice.

2. Bring the spinnerbaits along too, anyway.
