Big Bass -VS- Most Bass Lure

Recommended Posts

I saw the forum about the lure used for the biggest bass a body ever caught, but what about the most?  WHat lure do you use to catch the most bass, please include weight/size and colour scheme!

The lure that catches MORE bass than any other, although they are usually smaller, would be a 3.5" tube in advacado color, rigged with an 1/8th oz. insider jighead. This is usually my go to anywhere

The majority of all the bass I've ever caught were hooked on a 7 1/2" Culprit (black shad) texas rigged. My go to bait. The fish have ranged from 4 & 5 lbs to so small I don't know how he got the hook in his mouth. The top big bass lure for me has always been a Jig & eel. JMHE

Not to step on anyones toes but  I.M.H.O id have to say the 5 inch senko catches the most but usually for my fishing buddy and i the smallest bass, often times many dinks, creature baits in any size and color because i have used many catch quite a few and the average size is the best quality for me

my favorite go to bait i use to catch most of my fish is a zoom baby brush hog in green pumkin or a zoom u tail worm in cherry seed. I catch a lot of 1 and 2 lb fish with these but have caught a few nice fish on these as well.

What you are looking for all depends on where you fish. There is no best lure that does everything. If there were there would not be the variety of lures on the market that you see. And, there would only be one lure company with the only patented lure that works.  What works for me where I fish may not work for you.

A good example: People in certain areas will tell you that Chatterbaits are the best things since X-Box. BUT, where I fish they just don't work. The fish look at them and leave 'em alone. I have actually watched bass look at them and swim about as if they had just seen Santa Claus.

There is a lot of experimentation involved. Sometimes it's frustrating and you put good money into lots of different lures only to find heartache.

Try this, try fishing only a Carolina rig with rubber worms. Work the entire area, be it bank or from a boat. Use a multitude of colors. You will find that one or two colors will catch fish where others will not.

It's all experimentation. Once you find the color that works for you in the area that you fish you will find that a week later it doesn't work. Yet you see evidence of fish in the area. You get frustrated but before giving up you tie on a shad rap (any color) and you cast it out and WHAM! Fish On and Tight Line! ;) All is good in the world.

Bass are wild creatures and in their world they thrive. What attracts them one day may not attract them the next. There is no perfect bait.

Think about it this way, if there were a perfect bait the fun would wear off real quick and bass fishing would not be the sport that it is today.

Now that I have worn my fingers out typing my opinion:

Please tell me that you are new to fishing and that I just haven't wasted my time telling you something that you already knew......

Pheww...if I had to do a complete lookback over 50 years or so,

the lure that caught the greatest number of bass of all sizes, would have to be

the Culprit Original Worm, both the 6" & 7.5" length in red shad & black shad.

      As for largest bass, "live shiners" nose out the plastic worm, but not in summer.

I don't see much of a pattern with lures and don't subscribe to the big bait, big bass theory.

I do subscribe to jigs as a big bass lure, but not because bass like a blob of lead molded to a hook,

but because the jig is fished slowly and on the bottom.

The old weenie worm (finesse worm for people that weren't fishing in the early 90's) will get bit so often you will spend all day taking fish off the hook.  My favorite would be Charlie Brewers original slider worm and slider head.  A newer bait that is a close second is the Zoom Ultravibe Speed Craw.  When the water is above 60 degrees, this thing will catch everything in the lake.  Basically, anything small will get bit frequently.

This is a good question and a tough one for me.  I think it changes with the season.  When there are a lot of fish in the shallows, I've caught the most on the Original Floating Rapala.  In the summer, I'd say I catch the most with a 5 inch Senko type worm.  In the fall I probably catch the most with a Shad Rap or a spinnerbait.  In the winter I'd say a jig, though I haven't fished a great deal in the winter over the last few years.  In the prespawn period I'd say I've caught the most on a Smithwick Rogue or a crankbait.  Overall, I don't know if I can give just one answer.

Spawn: 4inch Powerworm Redshad or Camo, 4inch senko/dinger greenpumkin goldfleck or cinnamon

Winter: Xraps, Spinnerbaits

Sorry, for me there isn't a single bait that produces the most fish, although there is a small list of top baits that catch the most bass during certain times of the year but there is no "single" bait that works the best for me. It also relies on the time of day and the weather conditions and the amount of weeds in the lake, there are just to many conditions that can change the type a bait that produces the most fish for me, I can't name a single bait.
