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

  1. It all depends on the situation. Fish won’t hit a single bait consistently everyday throughout a year. Normally, you can have a select few baits and do fairly well.

    Plastic worms are always a good bet. You can catch fish all year round on these but again, some days are better than others with these. The great thing about a plastic worm is the versatility of them. You can fish them deep, shallow, slow, fast, weightless, etc. If fish are deep the easiest thing to do is Texas Rig them. You can vary the weight of the weight depending on how deep they are. Even when fish aren’t deep a Texs Rig will work. More times than not, the drop of the worm will produce the hits.
    If fish are shallow you can throw a weightless stick worm, like a Zoom Trick Worm. These can be very productive for top feeding fish.

    Spinnerbaits are great also. Again, they are versatile. The same goes for the depths of the fish as listed above. If they are deep you can slow roll a spinnerbait along the bottom running them over brush, stumps, logs, rocks, etc. I’ve pulled out some very nice fish by doing this. If you see fish hitting on top speed up your retrieve and keep the bait shallow.

    Jigs are always a good bait to have on hand as well. A Bass can’t normally resist a jig with a nice big craw trailer rigged up on it. When fish are holding deep and not wanting to bite on much a jig will pull them out. They’re made to imitate a crawfish so fish them accordingly. Let it sink to the bottom then use a twitching retrieve bouncing it along any kind of cover you can find.

    Last but not least are your top water baits. With Spring finally setting in for a lot of places top waters are going to be the way to go before long. Warming water will get fish to move into shallow water and feed on top. Baits like buzzbaits, Spooks, and popper style lures are all great for this situation. If there’s a lot of vegetation where you fish you can try out the frogs. The frog lures are usually weedless and can be thrown into very heavy cover with little chance of getting hung up.

    With those baits you will be able to pull out fish in nearly all situations. The key is to have baits for any and all situations that may arise. You want deeper baits, medium diving baits, and shallow baits in all different sizes and colors. I may add also that you should change up your color selection if you only use brighter colored baits. Brightly colored baits normally do good when the water is clear. In stained water you need to throw a little darker baits. Pumpkinseed, blues, and blacks are normally good in stained or muddy water.

  2. jigs and pigs will work this early in the year,my fav.color is black w/black pork rind frog,and of course worms either the real deal or plastic work now too.Spring is spawning time,so look for the fat females in the shallows on the beds or creating them soon,but release her so she can repopulate the lake,taking her out now takes w/ her the 5,000 others inside her that will never hatch and end up in the lake.The same stuff works on the white bass too,only use smaller versions.
