Mepps Spinners, Cavitron Buzz baits, War Eagle Spinner Baits, Rapala crank baits, especially the shad raps, floating minnows and the DT series. Basstrix paddle tail tube baits or something similar and the BassTwitcher jigs to rig them on (jpjigs.com), senko worms, Evolution Jigs, Gulp black shad minnows, Case Plastics - Buzzing Frog, Chompers garlic & salt skirted grubs and some sort of white twister tail. I also like the Bass Pro XPS Lazer Eye in-line spinners.

And my secret weapon - the Bass-Erator - my own home-made in-line Buzz Bait.

With that, you'd be loaded for bear! or at least a lunker........

Well everyone else has pretty much covered everything except 2

-YUM Crawfish 3.25in Green Pumpkin

        - I have been in a boat that was less than 5 ft from a bass, and still had it bite this. It is the ultimate in realism with a life size body.

- Strike King Denny Bauer Jigs

Just wait till spawning season. I dont even tell the guys in my club about the crawbug during the spawn, I dont even rig one until we get where we are going. It is one of my most closely guarded secrets.

Put it on a pro model Spot Remover and see what happens. :)
