Your favorite brand for each lure type you use?

Recommended Posts

What is everyones favorite brand for each lure type they use? Thought it would be kind of interesting to see what everyone likes to use and which is most popular. If you want to go into more detail you can say the specific model also. I will start it off.

Hardbaits-Rapala and Bomber in a tie, plan on giving Lucky Craft a try here soon. Heddon and Rebel when it comes to topwater.

Soft Plastics-Yum

Spinnerbaits/Buzzbaits-Terminator

Jig- Custom(Gman)

There's no way I could simplify things to this extennt.

For example In soft plastics alone, I really like the zoom finesse worm, super fluke, and horny toad

But for senko's it's GYCB, also his fat ika, and grubs

In worms I like culprit, manns jelly, and GYCB kut tail

you get the picture,

Now that I've got some of Chris' custom handpours the whole soft plastic world has stood on it's head.

Cranks- (I know they catch alot of flack from some around here, but. . .) Rat-L-traps/Cordell Spots, Bomber A

Soft plastics- Zoom lizards, Berkely Powerworms

Spinnerbaits-  Strike King

Top water baits- Heddon (Pradco)- Pop-R's and Torpedo's

If it catches fish and is on sale, I'm buying.  These are just brands I use, not that I couldn't be persuaded to use otherwise.

Like Avid stated, I don't think I can narrow this down to a favorite.  I can state some generalities.

Hardbaits:  I have more Rapala than anything else.

Softbaits:  Depends on if its a worm, creature, tube, frog, etc.  

Jigs:  I have more Booyah and Strike King than anything else.

Spinnerbaits:  Terminator and Strike King

Cranks: More Rapala than anything else. Toss in a few Mann's, Norman, and Bandits.

Hard Topwater: Heddon, Rapala, Arbogast, LC...again more Rapala than anything else.

Buzzbaits/Spinnerbaits: Booyah, Terminator, or Strike King...more Booyah here.

Jerkbaits: Rapala, Smithwick, LC (if I can afford it)...more Rapala here too.

Jigs: Jig-X, Booyah, Eakins...starting to lean more towards Booyah here...knots on Jig-X can be a pain at times...especially when it's cold.

Plastics: I use a little of everything here. probably have 10-15 different brands in my bag right now. ZOOM and YUM! outnumber most of then though.

If I could afford to buy them more often I am sure LC would be added to any category they make lures in. I would love to have some of their cranks, jerkbaits, and more topwaters.

Hardbaits: Bill Lewis Alias rat-l-trap

Soft Plastics: Zoom   Followed closely by Yum, Wave Worm & Uncle Josh (as in Sizmic)

Spinnerbaits: Lazer Eye

Jig: Outkast

I'll play along by listing what I have the most of.

Hardbaits: Rapala, by far

Soft plastics: GYCB, with Berkley and Zoom running neck and neck for second place.

Spinnerbaits/Buzzbaits: Terminator

Jigs: don't have a favorite
