4" watermelon red flake or green pumpkin Senko on a drop shot. I could put that in a Zip Lock bag and go bassin' anywhere on earth bass live, 12 months a year, day or night. There are others a lot more fun to reel in that I really like, but in terms of producing the most bass, the Senko.
Like jared, said, Jerkbaits are amazing. Last year we would just kill 'em on jerkbaits, no matter what. Sunny, cloudy, rainy, anything. For some reason that i don't know, i haven't thrown them as much this year though because i've been stuck so much on stickbaits. I just can't keep em off the stickbaits this year. 5 inch senkos and hippie sticks in watermelon, green, and some orangish/greenish color of the zoom z nail have been amazing this year. Stickbaits are probably my favorite bait to shoreline fish.
Zara super spook way to early in the year. You won't catch numbers but you'll catch hogs. I love to throw the southern pro five inch fat but tubes in smoke and red fleck texas rigged on 3/16oz pegged weight. skip them a half a mile back under an old dock and hang on. git the net.
I didn't see the fat butt on the web page which leads me to think they have renamed or discontinued them. I have a hook up that has them in stock the colors are awsome. southern pro pretty much dominates the pro crappie scene as the number one baits to fish.
