charliemeyer007 Mepp's #1 black with yellow spots, silver, copper, red with white stripes. I replace the factory treble hooks when they get worn with smaller Eagle claw ones. I almost never get a strike that I don't land.

I have an assortment of every color of lead head jig for crappies. Usually one is hot and the rest don't hardly work at all that day.

I try 5 casts, then switch to a new lure until I find what they want that day. Local bugs and salmon eggs can work too.

ImStillHere A few weeks ago trout were hitting green body black spot rooster tails hard as I trolled the local dam banks with my kayak. Yes human powered.

I dont know if it has gotten to warm, but i have to find something different it has slowed greatly.

northslope I fish high mountain lakes for small trout that are usually 16" or less. For these lakes I like:
1) Hammered copper spoon (my new fave)
2) Jakes Spin-A-Lure gold - My longest reigning champion. (sometimes silver)
3) Other spoons (hammered, gold, silver)
4) Dare Devil Spoon
5) Panther Martin 1/4 oz gold with black body and yellow spots (this is usually my river/creek spinner but I also use it on lakes) For creeks this one is #1.

ajole My favorites are various flies depending on the hatch, Rapala countdown and X-rap lures, and Vibrax Blue Fox spinners.

We catch brookies on....anything, really.

When we go into the mountains with the scouts, we have contests about the weirdest things to catch a brookie with. I've personally had success with beanie wienies (the bean OR the wienie), a cigarette butt I picked up off the trail, and an aspen leaf.

Scouts have used gummy bears, buttons, pencil erasers, zipper pulls, bottle caps, pull tabs, bits of paracord...it's fun seeing kids get excited and creative about things like that.

hatchet jack Can you still buy pork rind baits? I looked for it a couple of years ago and it looks like Uncle Josh is gone. I used to add it to my spinner baits. I don't know if it helped or not but it made me feel better.

wellbuilt I like a kastmaster gold lure for casting and a Swedish pimple flutter laker taker in frog pattern .
I pull lead core line while rowing a 14’ row boat with a 3” lure and 31/2” lure 12 to 15’ apart .
Most days I just fish with the little green lure , I get brown trout up to 3 to 12 lbs
And lots of small mouth bass .

BASS Several Favorites: NOT IN ORDER:

A lot depends on the depth and what I am fishing in: wood; weeds or structure.

Shallow running Shad Rap gray/black back in the early season

White Spinner baits with white twister trailer. single or double blade

Rat-L-Traps

White Jigs with white twister. 1/4 ounce and up

I also had good success with red & white, silver and gold spoons. But silver was the best. Then add in the spinners like Rooster Tails and a similar lure that I can't for the life of me remember the name of that I actually had better luck with than the Rooster Tails. And then the various crank baits.
I finally remembered the name of the lure that is similar to the Rooster Tail. Its caled a "Shyster". I have caught a lot of bass on those lures. There used to be a lot of cheap knock offs and the blades didn't always spin well. But the real deal spins like crazy even at a slow retrieve.

ridgerunner1965 if I had to choose one lure it would prob be a jig. there are so many styles and weights and most can be home made easily. you can tip them with live bait if you want or not.


I cant think of another lure that can be fished at so many different depths,speeds etc.

hatchet jack I have caught most of my fish on an H&H Spinner. I don't know if they are even made anymore. I have a bunch now and don't fish much anymore. My favorite colors were white, black & yellow, black & white, solid yellow and chartruse.

I liked the H&H because when I was a kid they were $.19 each. I used to buy them by the card because I lost so many. But I wasn't afraid to cast them in thick cover either. As soon as they hit the water I started reeling so they were just below the surface and the spinning blade made a ripple in the water. Wow! The strikes I would get.

I also had good success with red & white, silver and gold spoons. But silver was the best. Then add in the spinners like Rooster Tails and a similar lure that I can't for the life of me remember the name of that I actually had better luck with than the Rooster Tails. And then the various crank baits.

For Fly Rod fishing I liked a Muddler Minnow best of all. I caught all sorts of fish with that lure. The fish tear them up pretty quick.

I fish for Muskie and Pike a lot you can get most any type of lure you want @ Rollie and Helen's Muskie Shop, I've had lots of luck with the big (Real Big) spinner baits both single and tandem blades. I like them dressed with buck tail but have had good luck with rubber as well.

Stick baits,divers,are a whole other discussion. Like all other fishing there is are boat loads of lures to hook any angler.

It really depends how the lakes are laid out. Weed edges and structure are key to finding fish.

One other thing is leaders, I used to use steel but have switched to the titanium leaders. Steel is plenty strong but tend to get kinked if you catch many fish, the titanium leaders are thinner for the same weight rating and hold up extremely well.

I recommend the super braid lines as well.

ol_hoot In the south pretty much any small spinner bait will catch bass, white perch and, if small enough, bream.
I like the Beetle Spin in white with the red spot and the real little ones are a good bug-out bait as they will catch anything swimming ... and even little bream (or perch) are protein.
Pretty much any water in this end of the country will have some bream in it.

two bits I'm strictly a top water fisherman. Mostly largemouth bass and anything there down.
I have always liked the jitterbug, but my favorite has to be the Pop-R.

"Note" Indiana state record Largemouth Bass 14 lb. 12 oz. 1991 (caught with a pop-r)

SeaBeeDaddy All great answers so far. I'll add a killer trout lure: The Flatfish

And the Bass catcher Rat L Trap:

goat daddy roster tail are hard to beat. Mini jigs and the lazy Ike are productive. I would hate to chose just one. It would be like limiting your self to one rod , one reel, one firearm or one wife.

Batko10 It was a great lure 60 years ago when I was a kid. It hasn't gotten any worse with age! I go with the JITTERBUG!
