I know it is dependent on where, when, and what you are fishing for.....

For my area I really like the segmented lures that simulate a swimming fish.
I have caught, small and large mouth bass, crappie, and of course squaw fish.

This one in a few color patterns has done really well (generic pic). Got a pretty large crappie the other day at a local pond, I have just not had luck with plastics no matter the rig.



A lot of trout in the area too, but I just cant get them to hit anything but salmon eggs on a bobber, I just get bored with waiting. But we do have two pole licences and that lets me run that and my crank bait at the same time.

I bought a lure from a sporting goods store a while back. Lost it on a really hard hit, it had caught a lot of game fish. I really wish I had kept the box so I could get another, as I cant find it or anything close. I have looked at thousands of online image searches no luck. I now take a picture of what I buy so I can go back and get it, or know what it is I am actually using. As most the the stuff in a baitshop is designed to catch the roaming angler more than the fish. I know I am guilty of that, because I have bought stuff that I had no idea if it would work.

It was a heavy med diving shad type, with a vertical rainbow hologram type pattern that color shifted. I believe it was a Japanese design/name?? anyway on a braided line this thing would vibrate so hard you could feel it in the pole. On a shuddering fast retrieve was when it was hit the most. I swear you could hear it 20yds out the vibration was so hard.

I almost exclusively use rooster tails. Have 4 ammo cans full of em. Catch a ton of rainbows, browns, bass, blue gill, and crappie.

Firetiger with the silver blade for muddy water. Rainbow trout with silver or gold blade when visibility is better. In the river I use 1/16th and 1/8 oz. On the res I'll go up to 1/6. Sometimes I'll use the bleeding frog at the crappie ponds.

On the rare occasion I'm trolling for big fish (lake trout, walleye, pike) it's perch rapalas.

Step son uses thomas boyant spoons. Brown trout and rainbow color schemes. He does catch fish. I catch more.

I don't like spinners because about the time I start catching fish my line is all twisted. I use spoons instead. I fish mostly for trout and salmon. Nickel and brass colors mostly, but red and white, or even brown and white work at times.

With spinners, I use a ball bearing swivel to reduce line twist.

A good way to phrase the question, If you are packing for a long hiking trip, and you are certain to have many fishing opportunities, what gear would be worth carrying? I will be carrying a multi piece spin fishing rod, an ultra light Mitchell spin reel, and a tiny Plano case with several hundred hooks, and six lure types.

Dardevel spoons
Panther Martin Spinners
Rapala Foating Minnow Lures
Lazy Ike Lures
6" Plastic Worms
1/4 oz Spinner Bait
Clippers, Pliers, Swivels, Floats, Sinkers, Jar of Salmon Eggs.

If my info suggests trout or salmon at high altitudes, I'll carry a 4wt fly rod as well.

#2 plain silver (no feathers) blue fox vibrax. I have caught giant trout, smallmouth and largemouth bass, pike, pickerel, bluegills, crappies, and even tilapia. If I had only one lure on me, it would be the silver blue fox. Hooks are sharp, action great, and it is a fish catching machine!

I fish for everything, from Salmon, Largemouth and Smallmouth Bass, Walleye, Perch, Bluegills, Catfish, Pike, etc. While one lure wont catch them all, it seems like the Rapala Husky Jerks always produces for the big fish....in both fast and slow retrieves.

Jig spinner with a soft grub or small grub tail. Semi-weedless, good for panfish and bass, can be worked several ways, cheap, and pulls a lot of food out of the water.

For bass a floating green and white fish thing is deadly for bass. Also caught a snapping turtle with it by accident about 3 ft in diameter.

Most artificial lures don't work for me. But dry flies are amazing. Most productive way to fish next to dynamite (I assume).

My favorite is what ever I have gotten free time to chunk & reel. Not much free time to fish last few years.

Spinners of varying sizes, shapes, weights and colors have worked for me on every type fish I ever fished for. I do like a floating jointed minnow for large mouth once we hit this time of the year. A rubber worm, lizard or tube will slap wear out large mouth year round where I live. I always have a spinner tied to one rod no matter what even if bait fishing.

.44 magnum, .22 lr and a frog gig work quite well also LOL.

Mepps Syclops for me, chrome with red or blue accent colors is my #1 choice.

Not sure if they count as lures but I stand by jigs. The lighter the better. I regularly catch everything from bluegills to stripers and everything in between using jig heads tipped with bait.

I used to catch a LOT of yellow perch with TINY jigs. Had to use ultra light equipment with 2 or 3# line to be able to cast them any distance. Didn't need to bait them.

I've caught a truck load of fish on Mepps spinners, Panther martins (great for trout) and Rapala stick baits.
