Build a beginners bass tackle box

Recommended Posts

OK here's the plan

you meet a new guy at the lake who has never fished before in his life, but he wants to get started so he asked you to suggest some lures he should get and in what color

You can suggest

one top water

one crankbait

one spinnerbait

one Jig

and two soft plastics

What would you suggest?

Here is mine

Top water- Booyah buzz bait- white, 1/2 ounce

Crankbait- Cordell spot- red craw, 1/2 ounce

Spinnerbait- Booyah spinner bait with double willow blades-white,1/2 ounce

Jig- I don't use jigs enough to suggest any but I knew some of you guys would  :)

Plastics-Big bites single tail grub-4 in,white

Zooms trick worm, green pumpkin, 7in

Since its a beginner, I'd stick mostly to reaction baits.  Spinnerbait, buzzbait, 4-8' crankbaits, and a Senko style worm.  I'd tell the newbie to fish the reaction baits from top to bottom, and once bit, ply the area with the Senko.

Top Water- Rebel Pop R, good cheap too

Crankbait- Daiwa peanut, or Rapala DT 3 Flat

Spinners- I don't use them too much

Worms- Fish Stalker worms, ( they are like a hand pour trick worm, have better colors too.)

Senko style bait

Jigs- I don't fish those too much either.

Top; Good old jitterbug in black. Cant beat it with a stick.

Crank: (jerkbait) Rapala Xrap. Best lipped lure for the money IMHO.

Jig: Craw or dark colors 1/4 ounce.

Spinnerbait: 1/4 or 3/8 ounce colarado blades, dark or chartruse skirt, best brand you can afford

Plastics: A bag of Senkos and a bag of Powerbait. Dark colors work best yet again.
