Keep it simple, get some 3.5" tubes, and some 4" senkos in a greenish color, like green pumpkin or watermelon/red flake etc... Fish the tubes on a 1/4 or 3/8 oz. open hook, insert style tube jig head. And have a few rigging options for the senko. My top choices would be weightless wacky, or on a 1/4 football shaky head, and/or wacky rigged on a drop shot. If you can't catch SM on those, your not around them.

I think most styles of plastics will work, including the ones already mentioned. Also don't forget about the old-fashioned curly-tailed grub on a jighead.

Smoke Pepper GYCB grub. It's accounted for more smallies than any other in my boat.
