Mostly the same as last year. Out of the 1176 fish that I caught in 2011, exactly 800 (how about that) were caught on lipless cranks, ribbontail worms, or 5" grubs.

1.) XCalibur XCS 200 Foxy Shad. I caught (5) 4+ lb's, (2) 5+ lb's and (1) 6+ lb (my PB ever) on this bait this year plus a ton of good fish in tournaments. This was really my go to this year.

2.) Terminator T1 Titanium in white skirt with silver flake, silver/black head, large silver willow, small brass willow. My favorite bait of all time probably. Caught two 4+'s in tournaments on these this year plus got big bass in an Ohio River tournament with a fat smallmouth on this bait.

3.) Football head Jig. Just started trying to fish jigs in earnest this year and did pleasantly well. This has to be my number 3 because for the first season in my life I finally have some confidince in these and caught a few good fish on them. Did best with Booyah in various sizes and really prefer the greenish pumpkinseed color with a dark green Berkley Chigger craw trailer. Boated a few keepers in night tournaments and caught a few nice pond bass.

Senkos produced the the most, but perhaps I fished them the most.

Lake Fork Majic Shad produced the most violent blow ups and bigger bass.

Black/blue Dirty jig fell between the Senko and LF shad.

Top three:

1. Spro Poppin Frog (Most fish caught, two tourney wins, 1 top 5 and 1 Biggest Bass of the Tourney award 5lb 7oz. Also responsible for the first ever smallie I have caught on a frog. I have caught a ton of smallies but never on a frog before)

2. All Terrain Jig & NetBait Baby Paca Craw (My Biggest Largemouth Bass of the year 7lbs 3oz, not to mention several 3 to 5lbers, Biggest Smallie of the year, 4lb 5oz)

3. Booyah BuzzBait (This was a total shocker for me. I had tried Buzzbaits before on and off over the last 20 years but never really had any luck with them and then all the sudden in 2011 I could not keep the bass off of them if I wanted to. Second largest bass of the year came on this lure 6lbs 4oz. The dang thing also, believe it or not, caught me two bluegills that did not like this racket running over there beds. Small little buggers with bad attitudes. LOL)

Close runner ups:

10" Strike King Rage Anaconda. Would have made the top three list if I would have bought enough of them. Great worm but don't last for more then a couple fish at most.

KVD Silent 2.5. Bought them late in the season and caught many bass on them this past fall.
