Everyone can sit herte and say throw this bait or that bait[ but fish change everyday.[What worked yesterday might not work the next day]. My advice is have a plethora of and arsenal. If one bait isnt working [switch baits]. Look at your surroundings...structure, water temp, water depth. Are bait fish around?[ If so what kind?] They always say "match the hatch" in other words [throw baits that mimic what kind of bait fish are in there]. [Clear water use light colored baits, dark water use dark colored baits]. Theres  any things that factor in and you will learn that as you become a experienced fisherman. Good luck out there!!


Must be different in the north, midwest and south than in southern Cal. because none of what is in bold applies anywhere I fish regardless of whether they are large mountain lakes, shallow lakes and ponds or rivers that I've fished for years. The lure examples posted work everywhere all of the time when fish are found using them from early spring to late fall especially in waters 15' or less. Quoting what's been written in magazines or on TV confuses anglers more than helps them (especially in BassMaster magazine) except when the advice applies to when and where they fish.

As far as a plethora of lures goes, only lures having the right design and in the right size and therefore the right action get hit. Most others sold, not so much. Lakes do have a time of year for certain lure types - especially waters that are over 40' deep, in the mountain lakes I fish. But generally speaking, shallow lakes conform to the same presentations and lures regardless the season but dependent on time of day / sun angle, weather, vegetation types, structure options/depths, etc. Fish locations are found in using lures which can change seasonally, weekly and at times hourly.  The only time I don't do as well is early ice-out where fish transition because of warming water and certain species are making transitions to shallower water to spawn..

The lure examples shone catch many species even in the same day from the same water and more so the less those waters are fished during the work week. If it works for you by all means stick to what you advize. If not,  anglers should consider expanding their options starting with light jigs and soft plastics - which is the reason for the post.

It's almost amazing what you can catch on a ball head jig and any number of soft plastic lures. They can be worked at any depth and provoke the most strikes of almost any other lure type. Ball head jigs are inexpensive and come in different weights and hook sizes. Ebay is the best place to order them.

Here are just a few idea lures that capable of catching 6 fish species including bass, catfish and trout:
Swimbait rigged on a 1/8 oz jig:

Tube rigged on a 1/16 oz jig:

Work them slow and at different depths. There's no such thing as a lure that only catches one species.

Hit Cherokee early yesterday while waiting for the lawn to dry enough to mow. The heavy rain we had last saSaturd and Sunday had the water stained. Saw 60*-66* water in a creek that was a consistent 63*-65* last Saturday. Spinnerbait and shakey head got the deal done. Caught a dozen and missed at least that many. Hard to make myself fish that slow.

Good Morning Ski, Bassmedic, Jigfishing 10 and Fishin365:  Hope you guy's are all doing fine.  I made it over to the pond yesterday and was having a fair day caught 15 bass and got a shock when I got a hit on a 6" lizzard and hooked a nice Rainbow Trout.  We just don't have any trout this far south because the water is too warm.  The two biggest fish were 3.5 to 4 pounds. Y'all stay safe and GOD BLESS and Tight Lines to you.
