10 baits only

Recommended Posts

I'm wondering if you fished tournaments only as your only source of income what SPECIFIC 10 baits would you bring? Not just senkos but what color and kind? I brought this up because of a current topic in the tackle section about bait monkeys.

That's a tough one, I'll take a stab at it, in no favorable order:

1.) 5" green pumpkin senko

2.) 1/2 oz. white/chartruse spinnerbait

3.) pearl white bandit 200 crankbait

4.) firetiger bandit 200 crankbait

5.) 5/16 oz. brown jig w/ trailer

6.) white buzzbait w/ gold blade

7.) 4" watermelon/ red flake tube

8.) green pumpkin baby brush hog

9.) chartruse blue back bandit 200 crankbait

10.) chartruse blue back DD-22

That's probably not my top 10 baits but for a tourney I think it gives a pretty good selection for anything you may incounter. I'm not too comfortable with dropshot but if you are I'd definatly add that in there.  I'm a bit partial to green pumpkin but I changed the color of the jig and tube for a little more variety  ;)

Ok Bass master, we discussed this about a moth ago, I 'm old school, pre-senko era old fart. I only need:

Spinnerbait single colorado gold blade 3/8 oz Lime & Chartreuse

Black jig 1/2 oz

A pack of 5 inch grubs watermelon w orange & green metalflake.

Hooks and a small assortment of sinkers of different weights.

With that I have covered most fishing situations I could encounter.

Too bad The BaitMonkey personality doesn 't read these replies !  ::)

Hey thanks for the replies. It's really interesting to know what you guys would throw. The bait monkey constantly gets me and I have way more tackle then I need.

You can never have enough tackle. ;D

Ace I 've never used those Rat L 'Traps you 're mentioning, what 's special about them besides the way they are tied, do they sound different or wiggle different than the regular ones  ? would you tie them for heavy woody cover ?

if you were to walk out to my boat right now, you'd find six rods & reels, rigged with:

1 - 7 1/2" culprit worm (black/purple)

2- chartreuse 1/4 oz, 2 bladed spinnerbait (1 blade colorado)

3 - 1/4 oz rat-l-trap (chrome w/blue back)

4 - 1/4 oz chartreuse cavitron buzzbait

5 - chome rattling rogue w/black back

6 - shad colored bagley crankbait

boys & girls, if you can't catch one in the rivers where i fish with one of those, you just as well load the boat & go home.

(oh, yeah, i'll save the other four picks til later! Wheeeeeee)
