Favorite Smallmouth Night Bait

Recommended Posts

Black jitterbug one more time ;D

I buy the older ones from auction sites. In my opinion, the new ones do not have the action or sound as the ones made back in the day (1970's or so).

The quality of Arbogast was MUCH better back then.

I have had good luck on other colors as well, but black seems to be the best.

I'll expand on the black Jitterbug:

ANY black topwater bait. HA. No, seriously, I use black Jitterbugs, Torpedos, Poppers or Buzzbaits.

A spinnerbait with a large Colorado blade (size 6 or 7).

I dont have much good luck on top water for smallmouth. I like to throw a red shad Yum Wooly Bug Texas rigged with a 1/4 oz. sinker.
