Its always nice to share that with your son (y)
Hey Folks,
 Here is a Video of a lunker bass measuring in at 24 inches, ( a Virginia citation)
It was a windy day just after Hurricane Michael passed through our area.  
I have never seen so many large trees down in about a 60 mile area on the way to the lake here in Virginia
The water was like chocolate milk but the bass were still hitting lures in shallow water in coves where the wind was blowing into.

Enjoy !!
So next time you're racking your brain thinking
what should I cast that fish are eating?

don't bother.

Concentrate on lure design (shape and action); size (dimensions); what the lure is rigged on (IE jig weight/hook size) and far less about color. If the lure is exceptional, most colors work or a few will do.
Presentation is the next important consideration which can make all the difference depending on lure factors, lake or river structure, depth fished, water temperature, etc.

The proof is in the catching - always!
When I say most colors work in the designs shown, I mean ALL colors such as these:

When it comes to worm designs Kut Tail worms are hard to beat:

Slider Worms work for all species:

                                                             (and even this 7 lb catchfish wanted it) :

Slider tail added to a grub body /\

Thicker paddle tail worms are different in design but still catch fish:
to continue...

Thin flat-tails are hard to beat:

Along the lines of the mini stick are grub bodies joined together (Note wacky rigged jig):

Most of my soft plastic lures are either hand poured or modified using a candle. After years of using pretty much every lure shape you can think of, I come to the conclusion that any of the tail designs shown below catch fish even when clear plastic.

The above are what I would call a stick tail - one made from the tail of a mini stick added to the body of a lure.

Mini sticks rigged on light jigheads have also done well this year. Wacky rigged stick on the right:

Claw tail hybrid doesn't look like it would have any action, but it did and caught a lot of fish!

....another version:

Thick blunt tails are a standard and believe it or not have a unique action fish can't ignore:

Even works well with a float:

Similar in design are Crappie Magnet tails which are up there with the best and in many colors!

Spike tails are superb no matter the season:

Haven't used Mepps for over 40 years. I my curiosity is piqued! Guess I'll have to make some with different components (like those mentioned) and try them out in my pond to see lure action and flash. I have the perfect soft plastic baits to hang on the hook. Considering the recent success I've had with my homemade Beetle Spins, in-lines should do almost as well.

Afternoon all. It's a windy day here that started off with temp of 29 here. It's now 49 windy. This is our high for the day. Rain tomorrow and heavy at times. They're saying between 1 and 2 " of rain possible.
Hope all have a great start to the week and do be safe.
