A yellow rooster tail. I've even caught catfish with it. It's a universal lure for lakes and streams.

I was just going to say a rapala. You will always catch SOMETHING on it.

I discoverd this going for brook trout , in a very shallow stream.
All my gear was usually for lake fish, so I took a lure apart and put a small spinner and #14 trebble hook on just a 2 Lb leader and I had all the fun and fish I could ever want .
In early days I've sat on an old dam and we caught fish on bare hooks, when very few others were catching any thing at all.
It is not the pole, nor the reel, nor the bait, but being there when the fish is hungry.
I have personally watched fish swim past all kinds of popular bait lures and so forth.
Watch the time of day they eat or you get bites , and you can use a pop top and a hook to catch fish. (I know they don't make them any more ,but when they did ,they worked too )

Panther Martin
Item # 144968


Yellow body with red spots on body and spoon.


This lure has never failed me in fresh water streams or lakes. Ever. Kastmasters, Rooster Tails, and all sorts of other spoons in various colors have struck out and been hit and miss.

Every time I've used this Holy Grail of spinners, I've caught fish. My buddies will be getting skunked, and I'll pull the fish in one right after another. It's pretty crazy, but that's been my experience.

They can be tough to find in stores, but you'll come across them eventually. You could probably even order them online if you could find an outfit who could keep them in stock.

Panther Martin 9 PMSP-Y 3/8 Oz Yellow/Red Spots

UPC: 023634011471
EAN: 0023634011471

+1. Though I prefer the hologram shad pattern. The beauty of the Panther Martins is how easily the blade spins at slow retrieval rates. You can work a PM way slower than a Roostertail or any other spinner. Plus they will still spin while being retrieved downstream with a heavy current. I have caught everything short of catfish on them. Most effective lure I've fished, period.

My favorite all purpose lure would be the Reef Runner CICADA in 1/8th oz. I have used them for years as my "go to" lure when fish aren't biting good. This lure is very snag free due to the design of the hooks. The hooks are just like a treble without one of the hooks so that it doesn't snag, but rather drags over limbs and rocks.
Next on my list is a Beetle spin for snag free use.
Both of these lures are smaller and catch ALL species of fish. These smaller lures catch fish because they are a small and an easy target for fish when they just don't want a larger meal. I have amazed my friends when fishing and the fish just are't biting.
I went this past weekend to stock up on CICADAs for my EDC in my BOV just in case we need them. Try one and you will love them!
You will need to fish them both on light action rod/reel combos with light line as 4-6lb. to get distance and proper depth running. Casting distance with these lines is also increased with lighter line.

1/4 bucktail jig as charter captain for many years it is the most versatile lure you can use. We used to have tournaments where you were only allowed one lure and it had to be rigged in the morning no other terminal tackle was allowed on the boats. Lots of fun but once you and your teammate broke off the chosen lures of the day your day was over. With the bucktail you can fish it in just about any condition. From inshore coastal to offshore on the reefs to fishing in the lakes and rivers it is extremely productive.

To many choices but if only one I could make do with a dardevle spoon. I can use it for jigging, casting with and without bait and I can dress it up a hundred different ways.

Have caught most fish with a blue worm with blaze orange tail.
Works like a charm, especially fishing in cat tails

I've only ever caught northern pike on these things, and have found that they sink way too fast unless I do a fast retrieve. Do you just jig it over structure? What kind of bait do you throw on the treble? Interesting idea. I started fishing a few years ago but only have the chance to get out a couple of times per year.

Sums it up for me. Though I prefer Rooster Tails for rivers and Rapalas for lakes.

If I had to choose just one lure outfit to work with it would be this one.



For surf fishing a Krocodile Spoon 2oz jig never fails. NEVER !
