I recently bought a big soft tackle box with 8 plastic toots. With everything I had I only filled 4 of them. So instead of just buying stuff I think might work. I rather (cheat kind of) and ask what you guys use. And buy that. It doesn't matter the season since I like to fish all year round( as long as the waters not frozen). Brendan has help me alot with this(Thank you). But I would like to hear some of your ideas biginner or pro. So letter rip and thank you in advance.

my faviorte lure is not always the most productive,but it has its time and place, like all lures. but it is the floating rapala,i have caught 2 many species of fish 2 list them all,from largemouth and smallmouth,striper,trout,walleye and a few catfish.the only bad thing is if u have any pickerl or pike in your lake where u fish,they love em,any there destroy these lures. literaley, i have had them break one in half before,so this is a lure that is a must have in all takle boxes,now if you are just looking 4 bass, lipless cranks and tubes are always rigged when tournament fishing,no matter the place or weather these 3 will catch fish, good luck bro!

if i had to choose one hard bait and one plastic...i would go with a lipless crank and 6" Fat Straight tail robo...i could drop shot, split shot, carolina rig, shakey head, wacky rig and t-rig the worm. The lipless can be fished in any water column and at just about any retrieve and Ihave one of those in my box at all times.
