my favorite to catch bass on is a deer hair frog, because its fun. My go too is a black uv simiseal leach. But I also go to a derivitive of a diamond hair minnow called a DW minnow, and a rubber legged wolley bugger designed ( to the best of my knowlage) by charles meck called a black river bug. All thrown on a 7'10 redington predator, 6wt, with either a floating line or an intermediate.

When fishing for smallmouth I have gone strictly with a small
2-3 inch rapala that looks like a brown trout. Used to fish all the rubber worms and had hundreds of them. Haven't used any since I got onto the rapala

most of the time I'm tossing 3" senkos, 2-3 inch rapalas or jointed rapalas, 3-4" tubes, and small jigs using ultra light tackle.

Thus far, my favorite all around rod for both largemouth and smallmouth is my 7'6" Okuma light action spin rod, and a Shimano reel spooled up with 4lb Trilene. I'd be hosed if I caught the monsters that Colby catches regularly, but for the 10" to 2lb bass I normally get with my gear - i'm more than adequate. I use the same rod for panfish, trout, and carp. Big carp are huge fun on ultra light gear - and they usually inhabit more open waters, so I can fish the light stuff more or less worry free. A 5lb bass usually lives in places that are a lot brushier, or have more cover to break me off in.

Thats also where the bigguns be too! my faves besides the bait of confidence are swimbaits , and the ultimate topwater which for me is ragetail/spro frogs, mice ,and buzzbaits. got a few new topwater baits to try this year but am gonna wait to see how good they are before talkin them up.
