Best LMB Lure That Nails the SMB?

Recommended Posts

If I'm fishing a lake for LMB that has lots of SMB in it, what bait will catch them both the best? 

I've caught them both on a Senko, I've caught them both on a Fat Ika.  Have you guys found other baits that work better for BOTH fish?

Jerkbaits...Specifically the XR-08 when they

are very active, Pointer 100 the rest of the

time. Another is a 3 1/2" tube.

The Cabin Creek Critter Gitter 4" tube in Junebug has landed me quite a few big green bass while after smallies.  Next though, would be the X-Rap 8 like RW said.  Caught some darn nice hybrid stripers on the X-Rap 8 as well.

I rig my Fat Ika's backwards, as I learned from RW.

I know the Fat Ika isn't a tube, but do you all rig any tubes backwards like you can with the Ika?  Are you usually fishing the tubes weightless or T-Rigged/C-rigged?

Crankbaits, spinnerbaits, Jerkbaits, all pull double duty for me. This season come Hell or high water, I'm going to catch some smallies on a tube.

Swimming a 5" Kalin grub on pea gravel banks gets pre-spawn Spots, Largies, and Smallmouths for me on Table Rock and Beaver.

Equal opportunity fish-getter. ;D

I have seen no real differences as to which specie of Bass will hit my baits, if presented correctly.

Yeah, I catch more LMs on frogs and rats, but other than that and really BIG swimbaits, I find both species hit my lures, be it tubes, jerks, Senkos, Flukes, grubs on ballhead jigheads, cranks, topwaters, drop-shot, spinnerbaits, etc.
