Hi everyone,

 

I'm sure there are countless discussion topics on this, but what's everyone's favorite go to baits for numbers? What about size? I've noticed alot of people in the tournament I do are throwing a small bait and popping it off the bottom. I cant identify this so does anyone have an idea? 

 

My favorites are senko, jig, cranks

texas rig/wacky rig senko, ned rig, tube, drop shot. they will catch numbers and they will also catch bigguns. i try to fill my limit quick in tournaments and upgrade from there. knowing i have 5 fish in the livewell is my main goal.

Yeah the Ned comes to mind for numbers..and sometimes you can whack some decent ones too.

 

I really like a Carolina Rig for a limit of good fish. Some days its Bubblegum trick worms, lizards, Senkos, etc. I just keep rotating until something clicks. I wish I could figure that part out quicker.

Rage Cut R in a myriad of presentations until they tell you how they want it.

The last few outings a Maxscent creature hawg on a 1/8 oz. shakey head has trumped the ned.  It's been a quick livewell filler.

I almost never try to just fill the livewell in a one day tournament.  Most of the places I fish, you need at least 17lbs to cut a check so a limit of dinks is worthless. I go big from the start. Frog, bladed jig, and big jig all day.

Going after  numbers or size , use the right tool for the job . I have lots of lured that catch quantity or quality . Buzzbaits , spinnerbaits , plastic worms , crankbaits , toads ....

I agree.

 

Even on lakes that do not take as much weight, its the fish that are a little bigger that make the difference.

I have seen where 2nd thru 10th have all been 12lbs and some change and the guy that wins has 14-15 lbs.

Those one or two 3 Lb fish are what makes the difference.

 

In lakes with a bunch of smaller fish, the bigger ones are doing something a little different and so should the tournament angler to target them.

I don't really know if there are real "numbers baits," but I do know there are "numbers spots."

I like a 1/8 oz jig head with Keitech easy shiner

A 5 or 6xd fished in the right spot is the ultimate numbers lure for me. Nothing quite like bombing a cast and pretty much knowing every time you get to a certain spot in the retrieve it's gonna get steam rolled.
