The Best Lure of All Time

Recommended Posts

I see the big bass lure forum I see the Most bass lure forum what about the best lure of all time? I am not looking for which weather conditions it should be used in or which water clarity. Just a all purpose cool lure. Now on the other hand if it works great to, and would trade your first born for one of them (I know I would, mine has a four page itimized, dulpasized, and hourly revised Christmas list, I have just got to convince the little lady. If only it wern a fishing lure and like a vaccume or sumit...) please say so!!!!

FYI: When I say EVER I mean Ever, EVEN IF DISCONTINUED!

Gitzit or should I say tube? You can flip it like a jig in the heavy stuff, T-rig it, C-rig it, use it weightless like a Senko, fish it deep, shallow, use it on a dropshot rig, etc, etc. It can handle about any scenario you can think of for green or brown bass.

A jig. I always have a jig tied on no matter where I am or what time of year it is. I can flip it, pitch it, swim it, and just about anything else I want to. IMO it's the most versatile and effective bait out there, and not to mention you have real good chance of catchin a hawg bass on a jig.

Wow nobody said the #1 lure yet!! It is obviuosly the simple plastic worm. My personal favorite variation would be a 7in hand poured curly tail. I have caught more on that bait than any other. Original Rapalas would have to be up there.

I think I read a reply to this question by Homer Circle once, his answer was the plastic worm also.  I think his point was that it had caught more fish than any other lure.  Then again, I don't trust my memory much any more!  I have certainly caught more fish on plastic worms than any other bait.  My favorite worm is a 4" Slider worm on a 1/16 oz snagless head.  My favorite worm used to be a Big Daddy Fliptail in purple on a wireguard weedless hook with 3 splitshot 18" up the line.  We had not found out about the Texas Rig back then.  Caught some nice fish on those purple Fliptails.

Doug Hannon's Answer (Big Bass Magic)

Plastic Worm (Texas rigged) It's a long, thin shape resembles the profile of a wide variety of forage in the world of the bass, including earthworms, snakes, eels, and baitfish. Its action is almost entirely dependent on the contours of the bottom; and the rod movements of the fisherman, making it very random. It moves with little noise; the noise that it does make comes mostly from the random clicking of the sinker as it hits bottom. Bright colors and larger size can be used to increase its attracting qualities. Because of its basic resemblance to a wide array of living forage, this lure presents very few negative cues, and is hard for big bass to learn not to hit.

Here is the official answer:

Studies have proven that the plastic worm is the only lure made that a BASS CANNOT REMEMBER!

That is, a bass will continue to strike a worm even after repeated catches, whereas a bass will "turn off" to other lures, spinner baits and crank baits etc. after wearing them out on them. That's why you cannot continue to catch them on your honey hole with the same lure over and over. Bass will stop eating that which will eradicate them. Not true with the plastic worm, however. Although we all know bass will prefer a different bait at different times (i.e. "the pattern") you can always go back to the worm to catch them.
