What is the best lures to use while fishing for largemouth bass and/or white bass?

i use bright colored spinner baits, spoons, and little georges. any other suggestions?

Chosen Answer:

Really its what works for you.

If those baits are working, keep hammering at them, if not try switching some things around. Dont go too crazy, the basics will always do real well for you. But its fun to try different things from time to time. I like spinners and jigs, but every once in awhile I’ll throw some live bait out. Just fish what you like and have fun

What is the best reel for casting light lures (1/8oz spinners mainly)?

What would be the best reel between 50-250$ that would be ideal for trout fishing with 4lb test, and 1/8oz lures. I need whichever reel will cast those tiny spinners the farthest. Which would you choose for this ? (please include specific model names or links so I know exactly which reel your tallking about) thanks alot everyone. I really appreciate the advice

Chosen Answer:

There are many good reels in that price range.

And you will probably get many different good answer’s.

Here’s my pick:

Number 1- For years I would only use 2 different company’s for freshwater Spinning reels- Shimano & Daiwa. I wanted the “best” and Shimano & Daiwa always delivered.

BUT, in the last 2-3 years I’ve had tremendous luck with the newly designed Pflueger line of Spinning reels. Currently, they have a great line of spinning reels with the “Supreme” as their flagship model.

I own the Supreme and find it to be as good, (if not BETTER), than anything Daiwa or Shimano has made in that price range. In my opinion, the Supreme is as good as any Shimano Stradic (http://www.basspro.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/Product_10151_-1_10001_96667____SearchResults ) or Daiwa Sol (http://www.basspro.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/Product_10151_-1_10001_74466____SearchResults ).

Here are some links so you can view the Supreme and READ the REVIEWS:

Pflueger Supreme- http://www.basspro.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/Product_10151_-1_10001_94739____SearchResults

You would want the 8025 size for Trout.

47 people give this reel a 4.8 out of 5.

You can purchase a more expensive reel like a Shimano Stradic, Daiwa Sol, Daiwa Steez, Shimano Stella, Etc- but your best “bang for your buck” reel IS the Supreme.

That’s my 2 cent’s. Hope it helps ya? Good luck in your search.

Chosen Answer:

Sounds like you are looking for more than just hooks, maybe lures is what you are looking for. As one of the other posters said there are thousands to choose from varying in size and shape. For info on lures see if this may help. Copy and paste if you need to.

Are spinner lures the best for largemouth and smallmouth bass?

Chosen Answer:

It can be the best for certain situations, but not all. No bait is going to be “best” in all conditions. I’m actually not a big spinnerbait fisherman myself. The only time I use them consistently is when the water is muddy. A Chartreuse spinnerbait with Colorado blades is absolutely killer in muddy conditions. They give off a ton of vibration, which drives the fish crazy.

You can use spinnerbaits throughout a lot of the year and do fairly well in most cases, but there’s going to be baits that will be much more productive for these situations.

For Smallmouths, I never use spinnerbaits. They will hit inline spinners pretty well at times, but I prefer using plastics for them. I’ve caught a lot of Smallmouths on tube jigs.
