Nice smallie......Have you ever tried using tubes rigged with Gitzit type jig heads? They make the tube dart when they fall giving em a little more action.

1. Grub. Usually a Zoom Fat Albert in Watermelon or Smokey Rainbow
2. Jigs. I have thrown hair, rubber and silicone with every head config and color you care to try, they all have their place.
3. Flukes, I like Ark Shiner and Baby Bass color.
4. Crankbaits, in shad and crawdad patterns
5. Float-n-fly. Works great when the water is cold and the fish suspend.

For Maine rivers:

1). 2"-3" white curly grub tail with 1/16 or 1/8 oz leadhead jig

2). Spinners: Mepps Rooster Tail: 1/8 - 1/6 oz, (depending on current). colors (body/blade): white/silver, black with copper flecks/silver, medium brown with copper flecks/silver or gold, yellow/silver. Panther Martin: yellow body/silver blade 1/8" oz

3). 3"-4" Rapalas, black/gold, black/silver), floating or "countdown", depending on water.

4) 1/8 oz silver spoons ( ie: Little Cleo, Hopkins Lure, Sidewinder ), plain treble hooks, but sometimes white bucktail.

5) White floating/diving crankbait ~3" long, with rattle. Fish on top with twitch, or ~ 3-4 feet deep on intermittant retrieve.

Bonus:
#6 (couldn't stop at 5): Johnson Weedless spoon, 1/8 oz, silver. Great for working the bottom of rivers , and not getting snagged.


Flyfishing:
Brown/white lefty deceivers
Mudler Minnows (classic brown, or all white )
Hellgramite pattern gray or black
Leech pattern (black or purple)

Boy this post has been up here a long time. I guess I'll share, since I'll be able to stand on the water here another 3 months.

1. White Rooster Tail, dressed hook and silver blade. #1's and #2's.

2. Panther Martin Yellow with red dots and gold blade. Same #1's and #2's.

3. Rapala 2" original or countdown in Gold Minnow.

4. Culprit 6" electric grape or June bug curly tail worm on a 2/0 Eagle Claw 45 Automatic hook and maybe 1/8oz. bullet weight.

5. Powerbait 4" or 5" salamanders (power lizards I think) in electric grape or June bug. Same hooks and weight as above.
