I am curious about this so i thought I would start this thread. I am not asking for how many fish you have caught on senko(s) for instance, over the years, but if you say I have caught 4 bass on 1 senko then that would be what I am referring to here.

I will start.

Recently I have been catching them pretty good on lipless crankbaits and 1 in particular. I estimate this one lure to have caught me around 75-80 bass. It is a Cotton Cordell Super Spot in Gold Shad color. The lure has required some attention with Sharpies to make the paint look decent enough to draw more strikes.

What one lure has caught you your most fish before? Again not looking for I have caught thousands of bass on worms kind of answers but which specific lure has caught you the most fish. Has to be that 1 lure not a bunch of the same lures.

A Holographic Rapala Shad Rap SR5 (which is now discontinued :cry01: ) This particular lure has caught me dozens and dozens of bass! Id guess it caught me 50 or so last spring. It once had a nice scale pattern on it with a holographic rainbow sorta effect shining through it. Now it is just bright holographic silver with some of the black back still on it. But still, I keep it in a safe place and use it on special occasions. Its never a bait that I toss just because nothing else will work. However if the water color is right, the season is right and the bass are doing the right thing, out comes my baby. :) I had a few others, of exactly the same bait, that saw as much use but lost or broke them all last season. The one of speak of in thsi post is my last remaining one. I keep my eyes on ebay for it as often as I can remember to :)

For me one lure with repeated fish until the paint is gone and then some, probably would have to be the chrome/blue rattle trap 1/4 oz.
I have managed to salvage a senko by shortening and turning it upside down to catch about 15-18 bass on one senko (last one in that color that particular day), which is definitely a feat since they just don't last.

Most of the lures that I caught lots of bass on go back to the period of time when I only owned a few lures. For example my first Hawaiian Wiggler #3 was a red/white color that fished for several years before losing it. When working on a boat landing during the summers I would cast the weedless spoon walking to and from the landing and caught several hundred bass on that one lure. I still have a Bomber lure, Christmas tree color, that I fished for several years and have no idea of the number of bass caught with that lure, during my teen years. The best catch with one lure was a Scrounger head jig that I modified to add a 6/0 hook and rainbow trout colored sluggo and caught 18 bass over 10 pounds one day back in 1992 at lake Castaic. My favorite all time big bass lure and the one Ive caught my biggest bass on (18.8 lbs) is the hair jig in brown/purple/black.However you tend to lose jigs during a few days of fishing, so it's not the "same" exact lure.

Although I am mainly a ' soft plastics ' guy. ( to answer your question )

I would say a sugoi splash I have in blue-gil color has landed me quite a bit.

How many bass can you catch on "one" soft plastic brush hog? Now if we are talking about "one" style and color of plastic worm, then thats another pail of fish.

What you stated is the same as using the same plastic bait.
Your loosing color on yours and my plastic is wearing out. Same concept. :dunno: :neener:
I don't think you can use one lipless crankbait and catch 50 bass before you have to make it look good again.

I can catch just about as many fish on one plastic "worm" as a person can on a spinnerbait and crankbait before they have to tune it back up to par.

Bobby,

Nope sorry. I would let you get away with a worm if you where glueing the holes shut etc and still using the same exact worm. Now that would be the same thing. But using multiple bags of the same worm or soft plastic is not what we are talking about.

Shannon, I think you hold the world record for fish caught on 1 Senko. That is hard to believe. I would save that bait if I where you as it should be framed and displayed haha.

I had a chartreuse shad pointer 65 that produced fish after fish for me last fall. It was my first LC lure. I finally lost it to a gar. :'( My second best is a pointer 78 in aurora black. It has done well, producing 15-20 fish including my PB spotted bass. As to soft plastics, I caught 5 on a watermelon candy sticko a few years ago. All the fish hit in an hour and a half. The last one tore it in half. I put another identical lure on, never caught another fish the rest of the day. I also had a jig that produced exactly 11 fish one day. I lost it the next day on the hookset because I forgot to retie. :mad:

3" Bagley B, bass pattern, depth 5', - I used this bait for almost a year and hung many a bass in many different seasons.

It made it through the hangups, the squirrel fishing, and the abuse as I used it to drive loose nails on docks. Finally it was chewed up by a gar. My friend was retired to a box somewhere in the garage.

I still love balsa and throw them today. Ya just can't beat em!

Old School, I buy a lot of my balsa cranks from Herman (Located somewhere in California), ya know him seems he has been around the industry for sometime now.

I have heard of the guy, but don't play around making crank baits, it takes more skill then I have.

Keith, I probably would have kept it but that last bite I had the fish took the last three inches that was left froma five inch worm. My buddy Marvin did the same thing with a 6.5 inch cut-tail senko last year at Palatka in the team tournament. I gave him one to use because I only had three left and they were hammering it in practice, he did the same thing shortening it until he finally lost it at about three inches long, got him his limit and lunker.
