Your Best Lure So Far This Year....

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, just wondering what everyone's most productive lure has been so far this year. Wondering what kind of contrasts or similarities we will see.

For me, I've been catching the majority of my fish on a Zoom Brush Hog. A lot of my buddies have had much success on Strike Kings beaver style plastic.

How bout you?

Earlier in the year, it was lipless cranks. Just yesterday, 5" grubs passed up the lipless cranks in bass count.

Score as of today:

Lipless cranks: 126 bass

5" grubs: 131 bass

Baby Brush Hog for sure. Though I haven't tried the regular sized brush hog. I've just had so much success on the baby one that I didn't bother to try it. It's working well for you though?

Also been getting them on Senkos. Those are the 2 plastics I have on me always.

Though I'm just starting out, I was amazed that I caught a couple of bass from the shore of the pond behind my house on the baby brush hog. First time I've ever tossed that lure in my life. I'm really just practicing throwing the baitcasting reels.

Brush hogs will change your whole outlook on plastic baits. I used to only use ribbon tails. Haven't touched them since I started using the brush hog. You can pitch and flip it, you can rig it weightless. Love it. Kiwi when it's clear water, green pumpkin when it's dark.

5" Junebug DT Grub tipped on various jigs.

It just seems to be outperforming my other trailers at the moment.

I've heard of people having a lot of success with grubs, how do you rig them? Just with a jig head?

Grubs can be rigged many ways - jig head, t-rig, c-rig, drop shot, used as trailers, etc., etc.

For me, I nearly always fish them weightless and weedless on a 1/0 EWG hook.

Strike King Denny Brauer premier pro model jig usually with a Chompers twin tail grub as a trailer or a Zoom ultravibe chunk.

well since bass season doesn't open for another week and a half I have been using a white spinner bait cause I catch just as many 15" snot rockets as I do bass, if anyone asks I'm after pike I just cant keep these bass off my line. ;) I'm not bed fishing so where is the harm.
