Mostly soft plastics with a crankbait thrown in once in awhile.

what kind of softplastics do you guys throw? and with what kind of rig?

My go-to soft plastic rig seems to be a small creature bait texas rigged with a 1/4 ounce bullet head. pref. with a red wide gap hook, and a white or two-toned colored plastic

Depending on where I am fishing, I might drop shot, T-rig a creature, or weightless senko wacky rigged.

Lucky Craft Pointer 128 is my favorite, but definitely not my most productive.

My favorite is a spinnerbait but, as RW said, its not my most productive. I have caught some big smallies in the spring on spinnerbaits. When the bite is on SB's, it can be a ball. My most productive by far is a tube.

I like several different T-rigged creature baits, especially sweet beavers.  Any soft craw imitator as well.  I also was glad to see the in-line spinner show up on the poll, even though it didn't get any votes.  They are usually my first bait of the day when I'm wading creeks in the summer.  On the big water I spend most of my time on though, soft plastics are always the go to bait when nothing else is working.  Try drop shottin a gulp 3" fry really slow when times are tough.  It has saved more than a few days.

I'm the only one that voted for in-line spinners.  I picked them because they are my go-to bait, my back up is crank baits. Those in-line spinners are very productive from spring till fall where I fish for smallies.

I agree with you.  In-line spinners are very productive, but it doesn't require much skill to fish with, and that's why i believe most people don't like to admit inline spinners are awesome for smallies (especially shallow or river smallies).

I voted soft plastics because of their versatility and effectiveness.  Favorite rig: texas rig a small creature with a 1/4 ounce bullet head and a red wide gap offset hook.  i prefer using the white colored soft plastics if i'm using a red hook.  Just cast it into 10 feet of water, let it sink to the bottom, shake it around and BAM!

I voted for other - didn't see float n' fly on there.  Maybe not the most action packed way to fish, but I think most of us fell in love with fishing as kids watching that bobber dive and to this day it gets my heart racing (even though I like a good thump too).  

Cold weather hogs on light tackle - what a rush.

Since this is my first season to try smallies with the help from you guys earlier in the year my boys and I increased our size and quantity of fish by going to larger tubes.

So my vote has to be tubes.

In-line spinners.

I had to vote my conscience. Meaning, I voted for what seems to work the best. In my little river, panther martins seem to work the best. I might feel differently if I had better luck with something else.

Rebel crawdads are a close second.

Very tough question! But, I voted soft plastics.

It would have be either a 4" Berkley Chigger Craw, Geen Pumpkin,\ or Watermelon in clear water and Black Blue, Watermelon candy or Junbug in stained water. Rigged on a 3/16oz Pro Spot remover or T-rigged. Yet one of my other favorites is a drop shotted Robo worm in Arron's magic.

In the spring I'll also throw a Matt lures perch, and all season long a 7" MS Slammer custom paint, in Rainbow Smelt or Shad pattern, all day looking for the biggun!

Most productive/Go-To: Tube

Favorites: popper and spinnerbait

I found that the bigger ones loved a fast spinnerbait (potomac river). I found this out after just trolling it behind my kayak when moving from spot to spot (i rarely do this and never catch anything) but i caught several doing this and then realized that i needed to burn the spinnerbait to catch 'em
