Favorite type of soft plastic lure?

For Largemouth and Smallmouth Bass... my favorite would have to be a finesse worm on a drop-shot rig or a basic jig. I have done best using this style of soft plastic lure on sunny days and when the fish are deep - in lakes. In rivers... besides blade baits - it is hard for me beat a finesse worm on a jig.

For Muskellunge... I like to use 6 and 10 inch Kalin's, twister tail grubs in rivers. In lakes... I prefer to use Bulldawg swimbaits.

Twister tail grubs, finesse worms, tubes, creature baits... what are your favorite soft plastics to use in any given situation while fishing?

  • favorite one crazy legs chigger craw for large mouth bass. & I love using plastic frogs on top water for large mouth bass
  • A curly tail grub on a jig head is a versatile lure that I like for most any species, from panfish to pike, and everything in between. Fast retrieve, slow retrieve, jig, shallow water or deep, it works for it all. When backpacking or just exploring and when I am limited for space, these are what I'll bring.

    Having said that, it's hard to beat a 5" Senko Texas rigged for largemouth.
    • You got that right Bernie!
  • My favorite soft plastics would have to be zoom ultra vibe speed craws and ultra vibe speed worms.I use them on carolina rigs, shakey heads, swing jigs, and as trailers on football jigs.
