Put a Super Fluke in there too. For topwater -Rebel Pop R and a buzzbait.

    I would just keep it at that. I find when I start trying too many different lures, I get more frustrated and bored.
    I hear ya on using too many lures! That's the problem I'm dealing with now. I have so many favorites that I use that just aren't working like they used to. I did a lot of fishing as a kid in NJ and I guess I'm dealing with some real picky fish here in VA. I have to say though nothing beats when you discover that new lure that lands fish left and right!

    When it comes to creature style baits, as with any bait, there is a myriad of choices. For me, I started with and have stuck with the Zoom Baby Brush Hog or the standard size Brush Hog. I fish the BBH probably 95% of the time when I use a creature and I have confidence in it. Basic Green Pumpkin or JuneBug are my most common color choices, but I have plenty of other options too, as well as some tail dipping/dying from time to time.

    I think Steve's list up there is pretty much spot on, and if there is one fella on this site who's used just about every bait out there, he's the one.

    I'd say this is in the right category. We're building a tackle box which is a perfect time to throw in more than a few lure modifications...
    Besides, looks to me like we have quite a few experienced fisherman replying to this post trying to help all of our readers out. You should chip in and help instead of questioning a perfectly good topic.

    Gnfsnva,

    Would you say you prefer plastics over anything else in your box? What's your "go-to" lure this time of year?

    Tuff call...and I'm not the best angler by any means (Y'all can all start the comments now...I recognize my weakness's - fishing being one of them. LOL)

    You can't go wrong this time of year with a spinnerbait, square-bill crank bait or chatter-bait - just do your best to 'match the hatch' on colors/sizes. If you were going slower, I'd be throwing a senko, jig or baby brush hog.

    I don't know anyone who would claim to be the best angler so no worries on that. Only one way to learn, throw it out there and either be praised for it or have everyone say you're an idiot haha. I'm definatley going to be throwing out a few spinnerbaits, bombers, and I'm going to practice my Jigging this weekend. I'm making my shopping list as I write this so keep the comments coming guys!

    I think I've seen almost every angler on this site talk about that baby brush hog. I've picked up a pack last season but I didn't have the best luck with them. Someone should start a topic on that lure alone!

    Nobodies mentioned my go to bait the Tube. I don't go fishing without a tube and a jig tied up. You can fish them with you standard tube jig, dragging, swimming, ripping them off the bottom, popping & crawling, flipping and pitching them.

    1) Jig: Blk/Blu (standard for me and my favorite lure) or grn/brn.
    2) Tube
    3) Spinnerbait (second favorite Lure, smallmouth bites are incredible)
    4) Spittin Image shad (FYI never use floro, kills the action)
    5) Senko (4 and 5 inch)
    6) Buzzbait
    7) Crankbaits (KVD 1.5 & 2.5, minus 1, 6XD are some of my favorites)
    8) Rattle Traps
    9) Chatterbait
    10) Shaky Heads (at Anna or any highland type lake its a must)
    11) Jerkbait (love the clown pattern)
    12) Arig (I like the 3.5 and 5 inch swimbaits. Steve catches 3 at a time maybe I should use 4 inch ones)
    13) soft plastic Craw
    14) soft plastic lizard
    15) soft plastic creature (canít go wrong with a baby brush hog)
    16) Swimbait (zman 5 inch and shadalicous 4 inch)

    What lure are you putting the baby brush hog on? I'm guessing you jig with it?
