5 Bass Lures You Should Always Have Ready To Use

Intro - Best Bass Lures

Many times anglers will look forward to hitting the water so much that they will forget what to bring.  If you’re like me you have boxes of soft plastic, hard plastic lures, and plugs. To make is just in case you forget to bring your favorite box of lures, always have a Go-To-Box stocked with the best bass lures that will never let you down. No matter what the time of year or condition.

1 - Jigs

Jigs are the quintessential do-everything bait. They can be crawled on the ground like crayfish or swam through submerged brush and timber like shad or bluegill.  They can also be used to conduct hand to hand combat with flipped and pitched. Always have a variety of watermelon, green pumpkin and black-and-blue colored jigs.

This jig is best used on heavy Fluorocarbon or Braided line and heavy rods.

2 - Spinnerbaits

When the reaction bite is on you want to throw a spinnerbait. Spinnerbaits shine when they are thrown through shad boils, schooling baitfish or when bass are protecting their fry after spring spawn. Also, you want to throw a spinnerbait parallel to bluff walls and intentionally bumped into the structure.  Spinnerbaits work best if the conditions are breezy-to-windy.

3 - Texas Rigged Soft Plastic Baits

When the bite slows or you want to fish an isolated piece of structure, you want to throw a Texas rigged soft plastic bait. It rarely fails as a lure which is why it’s one of our best bass lures.  I break these down into 3 categories: Senko-style baits, lizards/hogs, worms and fluke-style baits. Depending on the time of year and what forage in the specific area will determine what you use. If you don’t know what forage in the area is, then we recommending starting with a Senko-style stick bait in natural colors like green-pumpkin pepper.
Use a wieght that works well with the depth you’re fishing. 
1 – 4 feet:  3/16 – 1/4 ounce
5 – 8 feet: 1/4 – 1/2 ounce
9 – 16 feet:  1/2 – 3/4 ounce 

Yamamoto Senko - Watermelon Black Flake

If there's been one lure that has changed the face of fishing over the past five years it's the Yamamoto Senko. With its wide range of uses and subtle natural action the Yamamoto Senko has quickly become a favorite with anglers all over the world. When Gary Yamamoto designed the Senko in the early 90s, he had no idea he was changing the future of fishing. There’s a Senko in the lineup for every possible application and for every angler, from the first-timer to the tour-level pro. Whether you fish it weightless, wacky-style, Texas-rigged, on a Carolina rig, or on a shakey head or flipping jig, this simple slab of plastic will revolutionize your game and increase your catches.

4 - Crankbaits

Crankbaits are amazing for covering water in a hurry, especially if the bass are feeding. Make sure you grind and bump the crankbaits along the submerged structure. Make sure you employ different retrieves as well stop-and-go or burning and pausing work exceptionally well.
